Welcome! I created this course guide to assist you with finding library resources for Writing 50 Writing the Image. Please feel free to contact me at any point throughout the research process if you need help or want a friendly person to help you through the research process.
For your second Textual Analysis for this class, you will need to "locate, analyze, and compare two scholarly sources that make critical arguments about the same visual image." (Hodges, Textual Analysis II). These sources can be articles or book chapters that present an argument or interpretation about your image.
For the final research assignment for this course, you will write a Researched Argument. In order to do so, you will need to find seven (7) peer-reviewed secondary sources.You may also find reference sources helpful in finding biographical details about the subject(s) of your research.

Citation Managers are tools to help you keep track of your citations as you research and to create/format your citations and bibliography. Both RefWorks and Zotero allow you to keep citations, full text articles, and other research resources organized in one place. You can also use these tools to format your bibliographies and the notes/citations in your papers according to the appropriate style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.).
