In CANVAS IAT103W Fall 2019 Research Assignment (30%) Deliverables: Week 6: First draft submission (10%) Week 8: Final paper submission (20%) Research Paper Writing Instructions From Week 4 to Week 8 you will develop a short, argumentative research paper about an “Everyday Thing,” a subject for inquiry that invites you to explore the relationships between art/design, technology and people. You will choose a topic from the IAT103W Research Paper Topic List and research the cultural, social or political issues directly related to it. Read the IAT103W Topic List and the What is a Research Paper? section (below) to ensure you understand the expectations for this major W-Course assignment. This iterative research writing process requires you to integrate what you have learned in the first half of the course. The content of your analysis—how you describe, explain and interpret your subject—must reflect your understanding of the key ideas and concepts presented by the Norman, Barthes and Howells readings on semiotics and hermeneutics. The context of the paper—what it says and how it says it—must demonstrate your understanding of the They Say, I Say textbook and APA citation practices as outlined in the IAT103W Research Guide. The end result of this writing process should be a short, argumentative research paper that synthesizes the various writing strategies you have learned and critical thinking skills you have developed so far. During this research and writing process your job is to choose a topic—from the list below—and directly engage the research questions presented in order to generate an argument that can be explored within the scope of this short paper (5 double spaced pages of written text). The argumentative nature of this paper requires you to take a clear position (a strong opinion) on the issue and to support your position with evidence to ultimately persuade your audience. Your research paper should do the following: 1. Identify a specific issue or problem relevant to your topic. Simon Fraser University IAT103W Art and Social Change Discussion 2. Put the problem into CONTEXT for your audience, including any necessary background or historical information. 3. Examine the problem from multiple perspectives including the opinions, arguments and counter arguments of the stakeholders affected by the issue. 4. Engage with and include the ideas, opinions, and arguments of key figures and experts associated with the problem and CONNECT your ideas clearly with theirs. 5. Provide a conclusion based on your research that proposes a solution to the problem, or sends the reader away with new insights or areas for future consideration. 6. Satisfy each of the conditions above in an ethically researched, well-reasoned, and persuasive manner that demonstrates your critical thinking and the writing skills developed over the term: a. Includes a title page, 5 double-spaced pages of text, at least 2 relevant images or graphics, and an APA list of References. b. Demonstrates and CONVEYS the effective and ethical use of academic writing skills and strategies discussed in They Say, I Say (including summarizing, quoting, paraphrasing others). c. Demonstrates the effective use of interpretive strategies used in the Norman, Barthes and/or Howells readings. 1 d. Integrates and CITES 8-10 sources: at least 2 sources must come from the course readings (ex: Barthes, Howell, Norman) and at least 2 sources must be academic articles. The paper must demonstrate the ethical use of APA CITATION practices (in-text and APA References page) practiced and discussed in class. Read SFU Code of Academic Integrity for definition of plagiarism and examples ( ). Research Paper General Submission Expectations: The first draft of your paper is due in Week 6 at the start of class. You must upload a digital copy to CANVAS prior to class AND bring a hardcopy to hand in. Draft 1 will be rigorously work-shopped in class and then graded by your TA/Instructor according to the research paper criteria (10%). Your marked draft will be returned to you in Week 7. You will have one week to revise your paper based on the feedback provided in class and written on your paper. You will submit the final version of your paper in two ways: a) an electronic file must be uploaded to CANVAS before the start of the Week 8 class b) your graded first draft AND a hard-copy of final version must be handed in at the start of the Week 8 class. The final paper will be reviewed, based on the same criteria for draft 1 and the quality of your revisions. It will be given a letter grade only. The final draft of your paper should clearly show that you read, understood, and applied the feedback provided from your instructor, TA, and peers. This is an exercise in iteration, planning and design, therefore papers with cursory revisions or no revisions will lose a full letter grade (ex: a B will get a C). Note: Due to time constraints on marking deadlines, late submissions will NOT be accepted without a doctor’s note or some highly credible form of evidence. SFU Library & SLC Writing Resources: For assistance with finding sources on your research topic, drop by the research desk at library or you can make an appointment with our SIAT Librarian [email protected] or with one of the other SFU research librarians. For assistance with writing your research paper, you can make an appointment with a peer mentor at the Student Learning Commons ( or with Surrey Learning Commons Coordinator Cynthia Wright. IAT103W Research Paper Topics Fall 2019 The first step in writing a research paper is finding a topic that engages your interests in art, design and technology and the everyday things that impact the lives of people. Below is the list of research topics for the IAT103W research paper writing process. Review those that interest you, do a little preliminary research on the web, explore Google Scholar and read a few scholarly abstracts. Simon Fraser University IAT103W Art and Social Change Discussion Then choose one (1) topic that you want to explore for this research exercise. Topic 1: Gender and Representation Across Media and Cultures Should Wonder Woman be named a UN Ambassador? In 2016 Wonder Woman was nominated the U.N. Ambassador of Gender Equality. A short while after the announcement, protests caused the U.N. to revoke the iconic heroine’s super status. Look closely at the representation of Wonder Woman across time, media and cultures. What are the ideas or ideologies that underlie her representation? Why was her appointment so controversial? Was Wonder Woman qualified for the position? Image Sources: 2 Topic 2: The Transformative Power of Everyday Things Can art cause social change? Contemporary artists make, remake and transform everyday things to create connotatively rich and often controversial works of art. They use one thing to help us understand a larger issue. How do works such as Ai Weiwei’s Sunflower Seeds or Chris Jordan’s Running the Numbers or Brian Jungen’s Prototype for New Understanding use iconic objects to communicate social/ political messages? How does art become a vehicle for social activism? Pick one controversial artist. Learn about the artist, their body of work, the issues behind them and others’ point of view. Image Sources: Topic 3: Policing Social Media Should social media be regulated? Should some users be banned? In March 2015, actress Ashley Judd was viciously attacked on social media for expressing her views about a Kentucky basketball team. In July 2016, comedian and star of the Ghostbusters movie Leslie Jones was attacked with an onslaught of racist comments. Last year, footballer Andre Gray was fined and suspended for homophobic comments made on Twitter in 2012. While social media can give a voice to marginalized or oppressed groups, women, people of colour and LGBT users experience the most abuse on social media. These cases, among others, have critics asking if racist, sexist and homophobic comments and/or the users who post them should be banned from social media? Who is responsible for protecting social media users? Use more recent examples of social media abuse and ensure they are related directly to this topic. Image Source: 3 Topic 4: Is it public art or vandalism? Should Banksy’s public art be removed? Influential British artist Banksy has posted, tagged and painted public spaces with his iconic styles of social and political content. Celebrated in some artistic contexts, his work has been erased and removed from public spaces in cities around the world. How does Banksy communicate artistic, cultural, social and/or political messages? What are the implications of situating his works in public spaces? How do the works reflect the issues in the streets, neighbourhoods and societies they exist in? Pick one work that has had social and political impact on its audience—one that is controversial—and explore why some audiences think his public work is art and others think its vandalism. Image Simon Fraser University IAT103W Art and Social Change Discussion Source: and Topic 5: The Socializing Function of Toys Can toys teach us something about ourselves? In his book Mythologies, Roland Barthes argues that that children’s toys have a socializing function, that they introduce children to culturally prescribed values and social norms. Iconic toys such as LEGO, Barbie, and G.I. Joe have been met with market success and critical inquiry. What can these toys tell us about ourselves? How do they communicate messages about gender roles, social norms or cultural values? How have they evolved over time? Pick one toy and study its history to the present. Research the toy, the company, the branding, other forms of representation (comics, Film and TV shows, game, etc.) and other toys that have evolved in the market. Image Sources: Topic 6: Authentic or Fake Things: Who cares? What do they say about us? Who cares about knock-offs? In the art world, imitation can be a form of flattery, a way for creators to publicly pay homage and respect to those who have influenced them. For many designers, the imitation and “knocking-off” of their products creates financial, brand credibility and intellectual property issues. Why do consumers by fake things? Who benefits and who loses? What effect does the knock-off economy have on designs, designers, their intended users and the industry? What personal beliefs and cultural factors contribute to the status and social value of a design artifact? 4 Image Source: Topic 7: What do selfies say about us? Are selfies really killing us? Recent media have reported that selfie takers are risking their lives to take the perfect shot. What is causing such high-risk behaviors? In the age of the selfie and the rise of social media, it is important to examine this form of self-representation to see what it can teach us about ourselves and our culture. Why are we taking so many photos of ourselves? Why the risk? What role does the selfie play in our private and public lives? Research the history of the selfie and the economy created and influenced by it—from accessories to social media sites to news stories. Are we just vain, or do they serve a deeper purpose? IAT103W Research Paper Assignment Deliverables Schedule: Draft 1: Electronic copy to Canvas & hardcopy due at the start of Week 6 class (10%) Final Draft: Electronic copy to Canvas & hardcopy of first and final draft due at the start of Week 8 class (20%) What is a Research Paper? A research paper is a form of academic writing that you will be asked to use frequently throughout your time in university, so it’s important to learn to write effective research papers early in your university career. The skills you learn as you do this iterative writing assignment will be useful far beyond your university life, however. Beyond SIAT, you may be writing to persuade others, both in your work and personal life – grant proposals, company reports, office memos, business letters and emails. By learning how to write a research paper, you will be developing skills that you can use to become more credible and persuasive in your writing. Simon Fraser University IAT103W Art and Social Change Discussion What is academic writing? Academic writing typically requires a more abstract, critical and thoughtful approach to writing than you may have been asked to do before. High school students do write essays and papers; however, at the university level, you will be held accountable to a higher standard in academic writing than you have experienced before. Academic writing requires you to represent more than your own ideas and opinions. You will be expected to become familiar with the writings of experts on the topic you have chosen, to compare their thinking with your own, and to use relevant information from these expert sources to support your own idea—and refute them. Good academic writing actually represents a kind of dialogue between you and the experts you have consulted, so that your final product will integrate the evidence you have located from other sources with your own reflective insights. The final result should be delicately balanced. Too much of your own thinking, without reference to outside experts, will undermine your credibility. Too much reliance on the experts without sufficient reference to 5 your own thinking may lead your reader to conclude you don’t have your own original thoughts—that you’ve got nothing to say. Good academic writing requires you to think critically. Generally speaking, critical thinking is a process of reflection and deliberation that begins with understanding and progresses to interpretation and reaction. Critical thinking requires you not to consider any view to be true simply because it has been published or because the author has been represented as an expert. Critical thinking requires you to be objective and even skeptical as you read, observe, or listen to others. You require the source to convince you of the truth of its statement through its clear reasoning and logic. This is actually not unlike the way your instructor or TA will be reading the writing you turn in during this course and for other courses in SIAT and SFU. Your teaching team will be looking for clear arguments and logic, not simply unsupported opinion and conjecture. What are the types of research papers? Research papers fall into two main types: analyses and arguments. An analytical paper breaks down a topic or idea into its component parts in order to analyze it and restructure it in a way that makes sense to the intended audience. Sometimes this is referred to as answering a research question. Simon Fraser University IAT103W Art and Social Change Discussion An argumentative or persuasive paper attempts to convince an intended audience of the truth or credibility of the THESIS statement you make about your topic. You will be writing an argumentative or persuasive paper in IAT103W this term. What are the key elements of a persuasive research paper? In a persuasive essay, you are required to take a stand on an issue, and back it up with evidence–not merely report informative facts or explore or flesh out an unresolved topic. The debatable statement that forms the basis of your persuasive research paper is known as a thesis statement. The thesis is the core of the argumentative or persuasive research paper. “It is an assertion that a reasonable person could disagree with if you only gave the thesis and no other evidence. It is not a fact or casual observation; it must beg to be proved” (Purdue University, 2014, para. 5) Conventionally, the thesis statement consists of a sentence or two, placed at or near the end of the introductory section of an essay—usually the first or second paragraph in a short paper. Keeping They Say, I Say in mind, placing it here ensures you don’t frustrate your reader by not making your position clear early in your writing (Graff et al., 51). The rest of the essay should then support the thesis. It’s important to start your research paper with a strong thesis statement that takes a clear stand on some aspect of your topic. To be engaging, a thesis statement needs to be somewhat controversial. If your thesis doesn’t spark interest, or even irritate some people, it probably won’t be very interesting to read about. It’s not essential to present a thesis that your Instructor or TA agrees with! Your instructor or TA will be much more interested in your paper if it presents a genuinely controversial stand, as long as you back it up solidly with credible evidence. To paraphrase Graff et al., a well-focused thesis statement should tell your reader why your argument matters and address the question “Who Cares?” (88-89). So how does one back up a thesis with solid evidence? You make an argument. This is not the same kind of argument you might have had with your parents over how messy your room is – that kind of conversation is in fact a disagreement rath … Get a 10 % discount on an order above $ 100 Use the following coupon code : NURSING10
