Term Paper (30%)
One term paper (6-8 pages, typed, double space) with notes (either MLA or Chicago Style) and bibliography. Students are expected to develop an issue related to the course material. Typical topics include studies of a single work of art, work produced under the patronage of a particular individual or clan, a particular aspect of a single artist’s work, or a carefully delimited discussion about the development of a particular type of subject matter. The grade will be based on clarity of presentation, effectiveness of evidence presented, and soundness of conclusions.
