Expos 20 | Society and the Witch

RESOURCES AND RESEARCH STRATEGIES FOR ESSAY 3

Welcome! 

This resource guide has been designed for students in Ricky Martin's Spring 2022 Expos course, Society and the Witch. 

3 images of witches on tiktok, one with black catWhat 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!
