Blog post for 10/20

So far you’ve only been asked to find primary sources for your research project. For this blog post, you will need to find at least one secondary source. That secondary source should be a recent, peer reviewed scholarly article on your research topic. It does not need to be a digital humanities article, but it does need to be academic–something from a magazine or newspaper won’t qualify.

In your post, provide the full bibliographic citation for the article in MLA format, and answer the following questions:

  • What is the article’s argument?
  • What evidence is the article using to support its argument?
  • In what ways do you agree with the article, and in what ways do you disagree?
    • If you disagree with claims that the article is making, why do you disagree? What evidence to the contrary would you present?
    • If you agree with claims that the article is making, how would you build on those claims? What further research needs to be done on this topic?

Your post should be clearly written, sufficiently detailed (at least three paragraphs), and should demonstrate a good understanding of the article.
