SPAN 3030: Introducción a la literatura hispánica (Bultman): Course Objectives (SPAN 3030 - Bultman)

Objectives (SPAN 3030 - Bultman)

This guide is designed to help you identify key databases for research about the literary genres that have special significance for Hispanic culture.

At the end of the library session, students will be able to:

  • Identify appropriate databases and other sources of reliable information to complete the course assignments.
  • Learn about the different kinds of scholarly publications (monographs, journals, reference manuals, edited volumes, and bibliographies) and, in turn, how to critically assess their reliability and relevance.

Goals (SPAN 3030 - Bultman)

For the second oral presentation or for "Trabajo 1" (see below), find:

  • Two (2) print resources that support your research;
  • At least one (1) of the two must be in Spanish.

Two written assignments (4-5 pages each):


  • Trabajo 1 (First draft of 2.5 pages minimum) - October 18
  • Trabajo 1 (Final version) - October 25
  • Trabajo 2 (First draft of 3 pages minimum) - December 4
  • Trabajo 2 (Final version) - December 11 at Final Exam

Style Guides (SPAN 3030 - Bultman)

There are various styles for creating bibliographies and citing authors in your research papers. Basic information about some of the more popular styles can be seen from the Libraries' homepage. Click the "Services" tab on the top of the UGA Libraries Webpage, then look for "Citation Style Guides" under the "Research & Teaching" column on the left, including the MLA Handbook.

Copies of the 2016 edition of the MLA Handbook are available at the Main, Science and Miller Learning Center Reference areas. There are also copies on the third floor of the Main Library (PN203 .G53 2016).
