ENGL 379: Black Feminist Theory

Praxis Project

For your research assignment, you will be exploring the scholarly conversation surrounding one text and/or theory from the course by looking up some of the author's source material, getting into the details of their analytical methods, and engaging with their interlocutors. Why would we want to do this? Mining citations is an effective research strategy for finding related sources, learning about the development of knowledge on a topic, and understanding the origins, development, and application of a theory.

This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to interpret a citation to locate a specific item at Collins Library and beyond.
