How Roman frescoe wall-paintings affect the domestic space by bringing in architectural illusionism.

This project will REQUIRE research and you must footnote your sources and use quotation signs (“…”) whenever repeating someone else’s exact words (including those found on the museum online website or the museum wall label!). If you paraphrase someone else’s ideas, you must still cite your source in a footnote. Please use the Chicago Manual of Style as a guideline. You can find examples of citations here:
http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html (Links to an external site.)
Please use the “Notes and Bibliography” format.
The final work submitted must be original research on the part of the student. It must conform to the following style guidelines:
• Introductory paragraph with thesis statement, followed by supporting evidence in the main body, and a conclusion rehearsing the main ideas of your thesis (i.e.: summarizing what you have proved)
• 10-12 double-spaced pages of text (not including your bibliography, title page, or any additional photos)
• Relevant images (see further information below)
• Engaging title. You do not need a separate title page. If you decide to include one, it should not count toward the total number of pages.
• Footnote citations at the bottom of each page. Use the “insert footnote” function in Word (DO NOT introduce your footnotes manually!)
• A separate Bibliography page (not counting towards the total number of pages), including all the sources cited in the text
• Times New Roman, 12 pt. font; double-spaced text, single-spaced footnotes, 1 inch margins
• Pages numbered and stapled
• Please double-check spelling, grammar and punctuation
• Your name should be listed at the beginning of the paper.
Images:
• Not more than 5, unless absolutely essential and indispensable to your argument
• Should be included at the end of your text, so after your 10-12 pages of text (therefore not part of the total required page count)
• Need to be clearly numbered as: “Figure 1,” “Figure 2,” etc. etc.
• The same numbering format should be reflected in your text in order for the instructor to easily go back and forth between text and image(s)
• Each image should be clearly identified through a caption in the following formatting: Architect/Designer, Name of the Building/Interior, Date when the work was produced, Source of Illustration (what library/museum/book/resource?)
• If showing a reproduction (painting, watercolor, print, photograph or any other illustration) of a building that doesn’t exist anymore, or which exists in a different state today, the same information needs to be included about the illustrative image.
• This information should be inserted underneath the image itself, immediately following the appellation “Figure 1,” “Figure 2,” etc.
