Finding Historical Context

Finding Cultural Texts

This task will require more creativity and inventiveness than simply learning about your historical moment. In addition to searching the catalog for artists, filmmakers, poets, and other cultural figures or movements you have identified (and browsing in those sections - you might find something by flipping through a book of poetry or artwork), you might find these resources helpful.

If you come across additional websites with good cultural materials relevant to this course, let me know and I'll add to this list!

On Reserve

Ask for this book at the information desk. You can use it in the library or scan pages you want to keep.
