To establish your "scholarly voice," try using ONLY the third person pronouns "he," "she," "it" and "they." Use proper names/nouns such as the name of a band or performer as needed.
Please type your ethnography in a 12 point clearly legible font such as Times, Courier, Geneva, or Arial throughout including your title page. Please double space throughout including body text and references. Bold, italics, and underlines are acceptable where appropriate. Build on your World Music Ethnography Part I First Draft that you created in EthnoPages.doc or EthnoPages.rtf:
Your paper MUST conclude with a "Works Cited" or "References" section in MLA style. NoodleBib and MLA style sheets can be accessed online at http://www.santarosa.edu/library/guides/cite.shtml.
Please combine Part I and Part II and submit your final paper in this format:
title page (no page number)
body text (double-spaced, begin page numbers, )
Works Cited (double-spaced, MLA style, final page, last page number)
MLA style tips:
Introduction (paragraph #1)
Choose three of these suggested subheadings or create your own (paragraph #2, #3, #4):
first impressions: metaphor/simile
music acquisition: teaching/learning, socialization
oral/aural vs. written
transmission e.g. (for example) mass media or apprenticeship
solo vs. ensemble
organizational structure e.g. conductor/leader or egalitarian
classical, folk, popular
use vs. function
language/jargon: between performers, among audience
aesthetics: acceptable/unacceptable performance according to "insiders"
musical characteristics timbre, pitch, rhythm, dynamics, form (e.g. call/response, verse/chorus), medium, phonic structure (e.g. monophony, heterophony, homophony)
For your Part II Introduction, acquaint your reader with four of the "Five Ws" - the Who, What, Where, and When of your live musical phenomenon. Then present a "thick description" that addresses some of the subheadings suggested for Part II. Write a Conclusion that summarizes important points you discussed in your ethnography.
Plagued by that pesky "default" in Microsoft Word that automatically changes Internet addresses to blue underlined hyperlinks? Here are some "fixes":
1. Select the hyperlink-formatted text. In the Formatting Palette or under the Format drop-down menu find "Normal" or "Clear Formatting" and then "apply" to the "Hyperlink" text.
2. In the Tools drop-down menu select "AutoCorrect." In the AutoCorrect dialogue box select the "AutoFormat As You Type" tab. Then uncheck "Internet paths with hyperlinks." Repeat the process for the "AutoFormat" tab.
3. If you're running Windows, right click the hyperlink and select "clear formatting."
