You can decide on a topic of your choice but in close consultation with me. Find a topic within the Asian church that is of interest to you as you have a chance to browse through the Annals of the Propagation of the Faith (can be found on google book online through many volumes. The paper must be based on deep, extensive, and systematic review of books and academic articles in order to convey your mastery over the topic of your chosen church. Do not simply summarize what you read. The goal of this literature review is (1) to demonstrate your broad knowledge on your topic then (2) to synthesize the trends of current researches. Explain what is currently known and discussed about the specific topic you have chosen to study. It depends on your topic. Its literature may show a developing trend in the research, or it may demonstrate some conflicting perspectives in the field. Ideally, organize your paper according to a topical pattern rather than a chronological pattern. Limit your review of the literature within a certain timeframe such as publications in the last five to ten years. The paper MUST be completed based on academic formatting of The Chicago Manual of Style
Hi everyone, I have an assignments due on 4/16. It’s a complicated one. This is a Literature Review, 5 page minimum not counting bibliography, and I want the topic to focus on Christianity in Vietnam. You basically find out the topic in the “Annals of the Propagation of the Faith” book (the one i am looking at is volume 19-20, page 273-294, country Cochin-China (vietnam), but you can use any volume, as long as it is about Christianity in Vietnam) , and the topic you use from the book will be the primary souce. After that, you are going to research other secondary sources about that topic and reference what other authors, scholars, or group of scholars’ opnion about that topic (always write the name of the author in the essay).
6-7 scholars are requried. At least 1 encyclopedia souce and 1 from a book.
Please do not mention too much about Annals of the Propagation of the faith in this essay yet. It will be the next essay that is going to link it and this paper together.
