See our suggestions simply 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. 

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. You may need 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 work!
