While you are away from campus, I am available for virtual appointments via a Zoom meeting. You may make the appointment through the same scheduler in the box on the left (with my picture and contact info). You may also email me with any research questions or problems that you encounter. We are here to support your research throughout your time away from campus.
Research in Literary Studies may range from critically analyzing a text to reading through scholarly analysis of an author or a particular work. It can also include investigating contextual questions related to history, culture, economics etc, illustrated by the literary work, which illuminate the time period in which the work is set.
To assist you in this research, this guide lays out some tools and resources to help you find books, journal articles and some primary sources.
I am also available individual research appointments. Please feel free to ask questions!
