Paper 2

Expand on your formal analysis paper. Using one scholarly source (book, article,  etc…), research your object and its historical context. Incorporate this research into your first paper to write a paper that includes formal analysis and historical context to support your thesis. If you want to adjust your thesis from your first paper, you may. You should not hand in the 2 pages of formal analysis with an additional page of historical context attached. Add about a page of historical context and new analysis; your final essay should be about 3-4 pages. Please email me or come to office hours if you are confused about the assignment.

A good essay will respond to the comments you received on your first paper, and will adjust the description and thesis accordingly. Handing in the exact same formal analysis will not result in a passing grade. I am looking for improvement. This essay is just as much about editing your work, as it is about including new material.

You do not need to go to the museum again, but you may if you want.
