Art & Politics in Latin America (HAA 0520) - Oakland Campus

This guide was created to assist students in Jennifer Josten's class, Art & Politics in Latin America (HAA 0520)

Annotated Bibliography

When you write an annotation, you provide more than a summary. Annotations provide analysis, exposing the author's position and goals. Consider how the work helps to shape your own argument. Really good analysis at this stage can often make your final paper much stronger.

The Writing Center

Students are advised to get their writing revised at The Writing Center on campus, whether it be a paper or a resume. 

Citation Examples

Organize your bibliography by author's last name in alphabetical order.  Visit The Chicago Manual of Style Online for a more extensive list of examples.

Citing Images


Citing images for term papers or other assignment is just as important as citing journal articles, books, or other sources.  

First make sure to: 

  • Determine if the image is of significant enough quality to appear in your paper; make sure it comes from a reputable source like a museum or academically aligned image database like Artstor.  
  • Look for rights and permissions having to do with how the image should be credited. 
  • Identify the title of the artwork. 
  • Identify the creator of the artwork. 
  • Determine the publisher of the image. 
  • Document the url of the image if possible, and date you last accessed it.  

Basic Image Citation Format: 

Title/Caption by Artist/Designer/Poster, via Source/Website (Copyright Statements/CC License) 

For an actual work of art, not necessarily a reproduced image of that work of art:  

Artist/Creator. Title. Date created. Owner/Repository, City. Source/Website. Web. Date retrieved. <URL>  

For an image that is already published in a print or electronic publication: 

Author/Artist/Creator. Title. City : Publisher, date published. Source/Website. Web. Date retrieved. <URL>


Your image citations can appear in your bibliography/works cited list, directly below the image as it appears in your paper, in the text, or as a caption added to the image if placing it in a digital context such as blog or digital book.
