About this Guide


This guide is meant to be a preliminary way into your research projects for Marya Rivera's Spring 2024 course on Race, Coloniality, and Catastrophe. As well as identifying a suite of resources that can aid your research, this guide is meant to encourage habits of mind and paths toward people with the expertise -- and intellectual generosity -- that can help your learning succeed.

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

Enjoy your research adventure!
