Description: The Second Research Essay is a problem-solving exercise. It asks for evidence of independence in both the formulation of an argument and research. The essay should begin with the identification of a problem, and attempt to find an independent solution to this problem that extends upon prevailing readings. For your second research essay you should cite a minimum of 8 authoritative references, several of which should be journal articles and or books, and excluding book reviews. Remember to consult the bibliography provided (on-line) in conducting your research. All essays must have an official cover sheet attached, with all information filled in, including the question number. Students should locate and use sources beyond those listed in the bibliographies provided in this subject. You are encouraged to seek out reference material from across the University's library system (especially the Rowden White, the Baillieu, ERC and Architecture libraries), as well as the State and RMIT Libraries. Plagiarism is, of course, illegal. "Word finds" on WWW sites has proven to be a convenient way of tracking work that has been plagiarised from that source. Provision of illustrations is essential. Black and white illustrations are perfectly satisfactory, unless colour illustrations are necessary to the strength of a particular argument. Illustrations should be labelled with the name of the artist, title and date of the work. Please use Cambridge referencing style.
