Welcome and About this Guide
This resource guide has been designed for students in City Living, a Fall 2022 Expos course taught by Michael Allen.
See our suggestions as starting points -- a preliminary toolkit or research workbench. They represent our first best guesses at where you might find current scholarly conversations to use in your third essay and other kinds of supporting materials, like reviews or cultural commentary.
Remember that good research is often about following up on hunches, testing out a hypothesis and then seeing where else (or to what else) it leads.
Good research is also about using language flexibly and strategically. It's normal to try several search word combinations before you strike gold
Please reach out if questions arise at any point in your project. We'll triage by email or set up a time to meet in person.
Enjoy your research adventure!
