Scholarly Article Assignment (worth 85 points)
For this assignment, you need to read a scholarly article.
In a scholarly article, the author must add something to the field of research, or in simpler terms, they must do something new. It might be considering something that
has not been the object of study before. It may be considering an object that many have written about before, but stressing an angle that no other scholars have
considered. It may be asserting a new interpretation of the work. Your essay needs to note whatever it is that the author has added to the field.
Then give me the main objective of the article.That may well be what the author is says is new. In fact, it usually is.
Authors of scholarly articles must construct a logical case for their assertions. In other words, they have to prove their point. Your need to include information on
how the author has done this. When doing so, it is important to note the evidence or sources of information the author used. Some examples of evidence are a chemical
paint analysis, newly discovered letters by the artist, archived legal documents, etc. So a possible sentence used in this section of the assignment would be “a
chemical paint analysis found wudilium in the blue on Mary’s cloak. This indicates that the painter had contact with someone from Calijifalia, where wudilium is mined
and where its export was forbidden under penalty of death during the 16th century.”
I realize these articles are a bit dense and use some obscure terms. Nevertheless, you will come away either convinced or skeptical. Have they convinced you? Let me
know. How did they convince you and if they haven’t and why not? When answering this question think about the way the author constructed their argument, the evidence
they used, the soundness of their logic, etc.
Finally, take something you learned from the article and apply it to a work NOT COVERED in the article. Use a work from a module lecture or the textbook.
The two attached articles are listed below. You’ll NEED ADOBE READER 8.0 or higher to access them. You do NOT need to read both. Pick the one that appeals to you most.
Nochlin, Linda. “The Imaginary Orient,” in The Politics of Vision: Essays on Nineteenth Century Art and Society, 33-59. New York: Harper and Row, 1989.
Pollock, Griselda. “Modernity and the Spaces of Femininity,” in Vision and Difference: Femininity, Feminism and the Histories of Art, 245-267. London: Routledge, 1988.
(Note, this is not substantially longer than the other essay, it just has more pictures). Because of this this is a bigger file and needs two pdf.
