Literature Review Part 2 – Explained Instructions (6-7 pages)
UPLOAD AND SUBMIT ELECTRONIC COPY! (Sakai)
Write Summaries (half a page about articles and gets staples to the back) (5 marks)
Similarities in the four articles and don’t get the critique messed up with what is being
critiqued
What evidence and methodologies do they bring
What conclusions do they bring
Who is speaking to who
What topic is being tackled and what is the counter argument
Are scholars agreeing or disagreeing with each other
Are there similarities within all four or are they all completely different
Look for hints in the abstract* (research question and argument, conclusion,
introduction*)
Identify 3 themes*
Two articles under each theme (can’t have less than two)
Articulate how you see the themes developing in the article (quality over quantity)
Theme is sociological or not? – go on syllabus and look at major topics looked at in
lectures (example: gender but that is too general so narrow it down to feminization in
poverty)
Example 2 - Sexualities: Children’s Books and Hetero sex (sexuality and race are co
constituted and they work together – Heteronormativity*)
Key issue in all lectures – POWER – society is organized in relations with power (what
are the power relations [hierarchy, discrimination, inequality]
In all NEED TO HAVE GOOD THEMES!
Don’t use direct quotations
Referencing is important (every time an author is mentioned in your writing, they need to
be referenced) (only time page numbers are needed is when you are trying to be VERY
specific)
Don’t use any outside sources (i.e. anything from lectures or seminars) everything
should be inductive
Literature Review not Literary Review
Need a GOOD title

theme) (50 marks)
