WGS 101 (Lewis): Introduction to Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies: Home

Group Presentation Assignment

Each member of each group needs to find additional readings to inform their class session.  Each member of the group must find a different reading, and two of the group's readings must be scholarly.

Scholarly Sources

Scholarly sources are those which:

  • 1) are written by experts (with academic credentials)
  • 2) are vetted in some way for accuracy (like peer reviewed articles, and books from scholarly publishers)
  • 3) introduce new concepts, or ways of thinking about existing concepts.

Finding Scholarly Sources

Find Books:

Find Articles

The first databases in the list are specialized, subject databases.  Google Scholar covers a wide array of subjects.  I recommend searching in at least two of these databases.
