Your task this week is to further narrow down your potential topics for your dissertation work. In addition, you will start to identify scholarly resources and search engines to help prepare you to begin an exhaustive review of the literature.
Begin by choosing three general potential topic areas to study (My topic-Resiliency of English learners in learning). Then, you can obtain a research topic after completing a literature review. For example, you might want to explore bullying among children with learning disorders. At this point, you are not searching for a single, narrow topic and crafting a research question. You will start from the beginning, exploring several different topics of interest to you so that you can begin searching for literature on each topic. This literature will support the need for further inquiry into a topic rather than just basing it on your interests. Once you become familiar with the research and theory that exists regarding your topic, you can begin to identify if further research is needed.
Next, you will describe each general topic and the degree to which each is worthy of doctoral-level study in psychology. Include your thoughts on possible problems in the area that would allow you to make a contribution to theory. A “doctoral-level” study problem is one that contributes to our understanding of theory – “our” meaning psychologists and scholars. The key to theory contribution is beginning with a specific theory. Consider what theories may be associated with research in each topic area of interest to you.
Finally, you will identify several search terms/key words you could use to gather a number of peer-reviewed resources for each potential topic area. You will also make note of potential resources and search engines you can use to obtain scholarly sources.
Length: 5-6 pages
References: Include a minimum of five scholarly resources.
Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.

Choose one of the topics and write a well-organized essay of 2-4 pages (double-spaced, 12-point font) in which you (a) concisely formulate your inquiry; (b) using your close-reading skills, analyze the portions of the text(s) that are relevant to your topic (this is your “textual evidence”); and (c) draw a logical and illuminating conclusion that gives me a new perspective on the text(s) you have analyzed. Note: If you’d like to write a paper on a topic outside the list suggested below, please email me the topic well in advance to secure my approval. I will NOT accept the paper written on the topic which didn’t receive my prior approval. Please focus on “Princess Mary”; “The Meek Woman” or “The Overcoat” – but you are welcome to write a comparative essay by combining the discussion of the above works with the ones we had read in the beginning of the semester. The qualities I will look for in your essay are the following: § Do you ask an interesting question that doesn’t have an obvious answer? § Do you use textual evidence, and explicit analysis of that evidence, to try and answer the question? § Are your ideas logically organized and developed? Is the logic of your transitions (from sentence to sentence, and from paragraph to paragraph) made clear to the reader? § Do you express your thoughts in clear, concise, grammatical English prose? Suggested topics:
Discuss Gogol’s “negative ideal” (i.e., the state of things Gogol does NOT approve of) in “The Overcoat.” What is “the positive ideal” that Gogol opposes to the “negative” one?
Discuss Akaky Akakievich as “a small man.” What is Gogol’s attitude towards his character? (You can compare it with Pushkin’s treatment of the same theme in “The Bronze Horseman”).
Discuss the narrator in Gogol’s “Overcoat.”
Compare and contrast Gogol’s depiction of Petersburg with Pushkin’s depiction of same in “The Bronze Horseman” OR “Queen of Spades.”
Discuss humor in Gogol. Why is the story humorous? What devices does Gogol use to create humor? Do the social themes in the work interfere with the humor? Does the humor interfere sympathy and empathy?
A significant part of “Princess Mary” is devoted to exploring the hero’s (Pechorin’s) attitude toward life. What inconsistencies can you find in the main character’s philosophy (or lack of philosophy)?
Discuss Pechorin as a “superfluous man.” Why is he “superfluous”?
Discuss whether Pechorin is capable of love
Discuss the female characters in “Princess Mary”
Discuss symbolic meanings of nature in “Princess Mary”
Is the “meek woman” meek? (Hint: you may want 1) to trace the subtle change(s) of meaning that the word “meek” undergoes in the text; 2) to discuss whether the narrator’s conception of meekness is applicable to his wife; and 2) to contrast the narrator’s understanding of meekness with that of the author. Do the two use the word “meek” in the same sense?)
Discuss the narrator in “The Meek Woman.”
Discuss the style and narrative structure of “The Meek Woman”
Discuss symbols, allegory and motifs in “The Meek Woman” Essay Outline (please follow the structure below) I. Create a title – above are the suggested topics not the actual titles for a paper! II. Introduction 1) Provide appropriate context for the thesis/preview the argument. 2) Formulate your thesis statement in a clear and concise way/ explain what problem or question you are going to raise/pose; how you are going to approach this question. II. Body (evidence and analysis) – come up with 2-3 paragraphs that clearly support your thesis. Each paragraph should develop a single idea. Use a “sample quotation sandwich” file (see the “helpful materials” folder) as a guide. Paragraph 1 1) Intro sentence (Type a sentence that leads into your first quotation by telling the reader WHAT the quotation will demonstrate. This intro sentence should end with a colon (:). Example: In Part Two of the poem, the narrator explicitly asks us to pity Evgeny:) 2) Quotation #1 Type your first quotation. It should follow smoothly from the lead-in sentence that you just typed above). 3) Analysis Type several sentences that talk ABOUT the quotation above and explain HOW it supports the point you are using it to make (you can even begin by saying: “This quotation shows…”). You may find it helpful to re-quote some specific words/phrases from your quotation as you go along, to show how they specifically fit into your argument (review “sample quotation sandwich” file to see how this might be done). Paragraph 2 follow the system described above. Include an introductory or lead-in sentence, then the quotation itself, then several sentences of analysis (further discussion of the quotation) Paragraph 3 follow the system described above. Include an introductory or lead-in sentence, then the quotation itself, then several sentences of analysis (further discussion of the quotation) III. Conclusion In your outline, you don’t have to write a detailed conclusion (you’ll do it in your paper). Keep in mind that conclusion does more than re-stating the thesis; it should suggest the next step of the argument and/or reveal how the argument changes the conception of the text.

A major component of this course is a research paper that you are asked to write about an artwork of your choice from anywhere in the world and dating to before c. 1400 CE.
You will need to closely examine images of your chosen artwork, conduct research on it and its original context, and write an analysis organized around a thesis (a central argument or assertion about the artwork) that synthesizes (brings together) your own observations about it with the information you learn from your research.
Chosen artwork: the statue of Townley discobolus
Central argument or thesis: Why is the head of the discobolus so relaxed while the body is such motion. Does this head belong on this statue?
Have at least 3 scholarly sources
Be at least 1,250 words long, double-spaced, with 12-point font.
Include images at the end—labeled as fig. 1, fig. 2, etc.—that you refer to in the text. You must include at least one image of your artwork, and you may want to also include details, other views, or comparative images of other objects.
Include properly formatted Chicago-style footnotes citing at least three appropriately scholarly sources relevant to your discussion.
Include, and be structured around, a thesis. You should briefly introduce your object and clearly state your thesis in the introductory paragraph, and the rest of your paper should serve to support the argument you are making. If you are unsure about what a strong thesis statement looks like, more information can be found here.
Include a title that relates specifically to your object and your thesis about it. Do not title your paper “Art History Paper” or something similarly generic. Be well constructed. Ideas should be logically developed in discrete paragraphs. Connections should be drawn—or transitions made—from one idea to the next and the full argument briefly restated in a concluding paragraph. Words should be carefully considered to convey ideas in the most precise or evocative way.
Be grammatically sound. Proofread your paper multiple times before turning it in to catch any errors or typos. A handful of minor mistakes won’t count against you, but you will be marked down if the paper has so many grammatical issues that it becomes distracting.
Use a sufficiently formal tone. Academic writing generally avoids the first person (the pronoun “I”) in favor of a more neutral, third-person voice.
