For this assignment, you will gather information for your paper. Construct an annotated bibliography consisting of five sources. All of your sources should be from the UMGC library and be useful to your topic, reliable, and scholarly in nature.
Your list of sources must include:
At least one primary source. This can be your interview, your field visit, your observation, etc. Some examples include an interview with someone knowledgeable about your topic, a painting or literary work you are examining, or an observation of the rite or holiday you are studying (depending on what you chose). Make sure you cite it correctly according to MLA style.
At least one secondary resource that addresses interpretative methods for comparative mythology, ritual, sacred place, material culture, or myth and history that you will use in your paper. This source can be from the Learning Resources, but you are encouraged to find additional resources from the thinkers covered in the entire course, including Week 8.
For each of the five entries in your bibliography, your annotation should be about four to five sentences long and include:
- A citation for the reference in MLA format
- A brief summary of the source, including at least two main points it makes
- A comment on how it is useful to your project
Note: You must use your own words for the annotation. Do not use library summaries, and avoid using auto-paraphrasing tools.
Andrew R. Bahlmann. The Mythology of the Superhero. McFarland, 2016. EBSCOhost, search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=1221891&site=eds-live&scope=site.
This book explores the heroic journey of superheroes in popular culture, loosely basing its framework for the superhero on the heroic monomyth and introducing a long list of common tropes for superheroes which includes things like agelessness, alter-egos, their no killing code, and orphan status. Chapters cover analyses of the Green Lantern, Buffy Summers, the Alphas, and Beowulf. Bahlmann argues in his final chapter that superheroes are our modern mythology and that this modern mythology needs to be codified in order to understand the popular imagination. This book will be useful to my project because it offers some tools to interpret and discuss the connections between ancient myth and modern superheroes in film.
Format: Submit this as a Word document. There is no set length for an annotated bibliography, but you should expect it to be about a page and a half to two pages in length. The text of the essay should be typed, double-spaced, and use a common 12-pt. font like Times New Roman or Calibri.
