You will be applying what you have learned about the issues of diaspora in an assessment of a literary work by regarding how an author treats issues of displacement and identify. You will be creating an annotated bibliography and a paper.
You can break the research portion of the assignment down into three parts:
- Choose an author or multiple authors with similar backgrounds.
- Choose a work or works. This can be any work you've studied or another work by one of those authors. You can choose up to three to compare and analyze.
- Choose a theme. Possible themes are:
- Immigration in a particular ethnic group (e.g. Latina)
- Narrative style
- Identity formation
- Idea of "home"
You will then find your sources. You must have at least 3 critical/scholarly sources and 2-3 popular sources.
This guide will help you with the research portion of your assignment. It also links to information on MLA citations and creating an annotated bibliography.
