Expos 20 | Domestic Labor

RESOURCES AND RESEARCH STRATEGIES FOR ESSAY 3

Welcome

Welcome! 

This resource guide has been designed for students in Courtney Miller's Fall 2021 Expos course, Domestic Labor. Edgar Degas painting of woman ironing laundry, c. 1876

What follows is a preliminary "toolkit": some suggestions about where to concentrate your efforts. They represent our first best guesses at where you might find current scholarly conversations to use in your third essay. 

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!
