Complete Guide To Writing A Research Paper About Expressionism


Initially, expressionism was a movement that originated from Germany and aimed to present worldly ideas based on an emotional perspective rather than on reality of things. The movement later spread to many parts of the world since the First World War. The movement has had a great influence and impact on the world; which is one reason why there has been plenty of research about it. Stick with me for the next few minutes as we explore how one can possibly develop a research paper about this movement.

  • Defining the term expressionism
  • Studying about the movement is not a difficult thing. However, conclusively defining what the movement and their name actually mean has not always been easy. For someone wishing to write a paper about the movement therefore, it is important to come up with your own definition of expressionism which you will use throughout your work. The basic meaning of the term however is ‘showing the world your own perspective.’

  • The literature review
  • The literature review would arguably the most important section to perfect when writing a paper about expressionism. Take a lot of time studying about the movement, its origin, their beliefs, and its spread, research done by other people and gain as much knowledge about expressionism as you can before you start writing about it.

  • Deciding on a perspective to major on
  • Expressionism is not a local movement. Since the First World War, the movement has reached a global mark and now almost every country has members who are loyal to the movement’s beliefs and policies. Your research paper however should only focus on one thesis statement, which you can easily get. There are for instance several branches of the movement which could act as prompts for a research paper. The works done by the movement’s artists in all those years could also be a source idea for a scholar to carry out a research on.

  • Writing the paper
  • Once you have the topic to write about, the literature review and every other material you will require, you can prepare your paper and hand it in to the supervisor for approval. The good thing with writing about expressionism is that it is a movement that is still active up to date. That basically means that resources and sources of information are plenty, plus you can adequately be able to defend the reasons and importance of carrying out your research.
