Academic Article

Using the library database, locate and respond to a full-length (at least 20 pages) peer-reviewed academic article that explores a literary work we have already discussed.

If you can’t find a full article devoted to a particular literary work you’re interested in, perhaps you can find an academic article that explores a similar theme in a different literary work, if you can demonstrate that you can apply this scholarly work to a literary text on our syllabus.

Note that some articles, like those that appear in The Explicator, are just 2 or 3 pages long, and they might cite just 2 or 3 sources. Journals also sometimes publish book reviews, letters to the editor, and other content that does not meet the “full-length peer-reviewed academic article” criteria.

If you aren’t sure whether the article you’ve found meets the criteria for this assignment, feel free to ask me, a librarian, or someone at the Writing Center.

In your response, include the full MLA-style Works Cited entry.

Note that if you copy-paste what EBSCOhost offers as the MLA-style citation, you will not be demonstrating that you can accurately construct an MLA-style citation. (EBSCOhost includes an advertisement for itself in every citation it presents, and deviates from the correct format in several other ways that I can easily spot.)

You do not have to include the “hanging indent” format when you include your MLA-style citation in your blog post. (While it’s actually possible to do hanging-indent formatting in a blog post, it’s not something you can do with the push of a button, and I really don’t think it’s worth the extra effort to teach it.)
