University of Michigan American Film Stubs Bibliography

University of Michigan

Question Description

I’m studying for my Writing class and need an explanation.

This is the topic I want to choose to talk about :https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:American_film_stubs

This is a proposal paper+ annotated bibbliography.

In this first assignment for our unit you will be setting out your proposal for the Wikipedia page that you intend to create this semester. Please see this example (in attached file) that a past student has kindly granted permission for you to view. (Note: this student has a description of the topic at the beginning but does not describe the sections. In your assignment you will be describing your sections in a few sentences). Word count at least 1000

You should think of this assignment as offering proof that your proposed topic is verifiable and notable; that it doesn't involve any original research(including your own); and finally, that it offers a neutral point of view. You are also setting out to prove that your article has sufficient evidence and interest to stretch to one final paper by the end of semester, and that the evidence coming from multiple, non-biased sources . You might discover in the process of writing this proposal that your proposed stub is not going to make it. That is part of the purpose of this task so it's essential that you start working on it from Week 2. Think of this as a space to test whether your chosen stub can go the distance. If you discover that you cannot provide sufficient evidence, then you need to find a more viable stub. You must convince your tutor--and yourself--that this Wikipedia article is worth pursuing for the duration of semester.

Everything you include in your Word document must be your own work. Do not copy and paste in anything that already exists in your chosen stub.

Your proposal must be submitted as a Word document and follow this format:

  1. the Stub title (what is your article going to be called?)
  2. the proposed titles of sections within your article and a description of each section (you must list at least 4 sections including a description for each). Check out similar pages for an idea for how to structure your article. Some stubs will already have a lead section, others will not. If your chosen stub doesn't have a lead section, you can include one in this assignment as one of the four sections within your article. For this task, you should not copy into your Word document any part of the Stub article that is already in the Wikipedia main space.
  3. reference list of 5 sources that you will draw on to start writing your article (these must be GOOD sources according to the standards of Wikipedia, the University, and your chosen topic area. Again, check out good quality articles in order to see what qualifies as relevant and usable sources). The sources used for this proposal must be in English. You must privilege academic sources where possible.
  4. make sure you consistently adhere to the conventions of one referencing style - MLA, APA for example - for in text citations, or footnotes, and your reference list
  5. an annotation must follow the bibliographic details for each of the five sources stating how each will contribute to your article (tell us briefly HOW you are going to use each source and WHY they show that your chosen stub article is worth expanding. Be sure to pick sources that are of a high standard)

Learning outcomes:

When you have completed this assignment, you will have developed some experience with:

  • writing in a global electronic network
  • producing public knowledge
  • making authoring choices within the frameworks of intellectual property and open licensing
  • mastering the technical challenges of writing on wiki
  • mastering the cultural challenges of creating and promoting writing within the rules of an electronic discourse community

14 September 2018 Seminar Leader: Dr Frances Di Lauro Article Title: Paleoradiology (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Lella32/Paleoradiology) Associated WikiProjects: My article could be associated with two different categories of WikiProjects as it is both a tool in archaeology and a subbranch of the field of radiology. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Archaeology https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Medicine/Radiology_task_force Description Paleoradiology is the study of archaeological remains through the use of radiology equipment and techniques, such as X-ray, CT (computer tomography) and micro-CT scans, as well as MRI scans (magnetic resonance imaging). It is predominately used by archaeologists and anthropologists as a method of uncovering mummified remains due to its non-invasive manner. The integrity of the remains are still intact, whilst specialists are able to discover artefacts or post-mortem damage on the body. Radiological images are also able to contribute evidence about the person’s life such as age and cause of death. Although this method has been around since the last 19th century, the use of paleoradiology has yet to be determined as accurate due to inconsistencies revealed in images of mummified remains. Titles of Sections: - Techniques o CT - History of Use - Current Use in Archaeology o Egyptian mummies - Evaluation of Use Sources and Annotations: Brothwell, D & Chhem, R 2008, Paleoradiology: Imaging Mummies and Fossils, Springer, Berlin. This multi-authored textbook will be used in primarily in the “Techniques”, “History of Use” and “Current Use in Archaeology” sections of the Wikipedia page. It provides detailed information about the use of X-ray and CT and what information can be gained by each scan. This source also has specific examples of the use of paleoradiology on Egyptians remains from 1912-1976, providing an insight to the historical use of this imaging. The different specialities of the authors of this book provides a unique insight into the current use of paleoradiology for different modalities (such as anthropologists, archaeologists and pathologists). This also adds reliability to the content of this source as it is written by professionals in these fields. Boni, T Chhem, R & Ruhil, F, 2004, ‘Diagnostic Paleoradiology of mummified tissue: interpretation and pitfalls’, Canadian Association of Radiologists Journal, vol. 55, no. 4, pp. 218-227. 1 14 September 2018 Seminar Leader: Dr Frances Di Lauro This article is beneficial as it provides a review of paleoradiology in terms of its accuracy and role in providing archaeological evidence. This information will be used in the ‘Evaluation of Use’ section due to its assessment of the ability of CT images to give accurate information about the remains. The authors discuss how there are inconstancies between information gathered about remains, such as age, and due to post-mortem trauma, there is an inability to discover cause of death for many mummies. It will also be used in ‘Current use in Archaeology’ section as it details the role of CT and general radiography in determining age and sex in mummified remains, and also discusses the use of diagnostic imaging in types of remains different to Egyptian mummies, such as bog bodies and ancient frozen remains. Boni, T Chhem, R & Ruhil, F, 2004, ‘History of Paleoradiology: Early Published Literature, 1896-1921’, Candian Association of Radiologists Journal, vol. 55, no. 4, pp. 203-210. This journal article will be used in the “History of Use” section due to its comprehensive list of the use of radiographs from 1896-1921. The authors refer to reports from German, English and French specialists from this era who used an early form of X-ray to capture images of remains beneath their mummified coverings in a non-intrusive manner. The explanation of how this imaging was used to determine bone age and past diseases will also be used in this section of the Wikipedia page. Chhem, R 2006, ‘Paleoradiology: Imaging Disease in Mummies and Ancient Skeletons’, Skeletal Radiology, vol. 35, no. 11, pp. 803-804. This source will be used in the ‘Current Use in Archaeology’ section of the Wikipedia page. Chhem explains how CT is already used to create virtual reconstructions and endocasts of mummified bodies and skulls for museums. He also mentions the use of micro-CT for analysis of bones and teeth, which can provide a wealth of archaeological and anthropological evidence about the person’s life. This source also critiques the lack of use of paleoradiology by archaeologists and radiologists, suggesting that it could also be used to study ancient diseases the remains were exposed to during their life. Ernst, R Hoffman, H & Torres, W 2002, ‘Paleoradiology: Advanced CT in the Evlaution of Nine Egyptian Mummies’, RadioGraphics, vol. 22, no. 2, pp. 377-385. This report provides great insight into the ability of radiological techniques, particularly those of computer tomography (CT) scans, to digitally unravel mummified remains. The information it conveys will be used in the ‘Techniques’ section of the Wikipedia page, as Hoffman, Torres and Ernest give detailed overviews of the different CT methods, such as axial and multiplanar, used to obtain images which are beneficial to both radiologists and archaeologists. As such, this source will also be used in the ‘Current use in Archaeology’ section due to its examples of nine Egyptian mummies, one of which is hypothesised to be the lost remains of Ramesses I. This report will be a beneficial and reliable source because of the qualifications of the authors, all of whom have doctorates in this field, and due to its publication in a peer-reviewed journal. 2 ...

America has undergone various events concerning how people are currently treated as
opposed to how things used to be a long time ago. The film, All American, has been used as a
vessel to showcase various violent outbreaks that resulted after people failed to adjust to change
in society. The element of diversity is incorporated in film where the characters come from
different ethnic backgrounds as well as social classes. It represents the whites, the people with
color, the rich, and the gangs. Besides, the films revolve around gossip, drugs, death, breakups,
and conflicts, which are resolved using teamwork. At present, the film industry has grown to one
of the significant, influential sectors shaping society and world economies. The history of cinema
now spans more than a century. In relation to the class, the movie truly shows a connection in so
many ways. From a general perspective the illustration of diversity in the film industry and social
identity are depicted in det...
