Style sheet for B.A. and M.A. dissertations; term papers, oral presentations, reading journals, critical comments and presentation hand-outs

The style sheet contains the conventions that you are expected to adopt when writing your final thesis, a term paper, a reading journal containing your critical comments or responses, or alternatively when presenting in class, including your presentation hand-out and your presentation slides. You are encouraged to use the MLA style (9th edition) which is probably the most frequently used system in literary and cultural studies. (You may find that this is different from style sheets that you have been taught in the past or style sheets used by other programmes.)
