A critical analysis is a not a research paper. It must include the following (not necessarily in this order): 

1. basic information such as title, artist/author, medium, date and country of creation; 

2. an analysis of the work;

3. a discussion of how and why the work did or did not engage you. 


Papers must be submitted as hard copies.
