Annotated Bibliography Instruction
The Annotated Bibliography should address three readings. The readings must be related to one of the essay topics (listed below). Although not compulsory, it is strongly recommended that you do your annotated bibliography on the same topic as your essay.
Length: it must be 500 words, and cover three readings – so that is just over 150 words per reading. Each annotation should consist of the full bibliographical details of the source (using Chicago) and two paragraphs that are roughly equal in length. Make sure you a. identify the empirical focus of the article and b. provide a critical analysis of it (the idea is that this helps you to determine the article’s usefulness for your essay).
The essay questions are as follows:
- Malaysia and Singapore depend heavily on contract workers from elsewhere in Southeast Asia, including large numbers of women employed as livein domestic help. Discuss the benefits and risks of this reliance on foreign labour in economic and social terms with reference to one or both of these countries.
- Although governments in developing Southeast Asia have increasingly adopted policies that reflect international rightsbased norms on disability, people living with a disability in those continue to face many challenges in their everyday lives. With reference to one Southeast Asian country, assess the barriers to fuller participation and government responses to overcome them.
- Debates around protection of Indonesia’s forests often focus on the competing demands of environmental sustainability, economic growth and indigenous livelihoods. Discuss the impact of these competing demands with reference to Kalimantan.
