Welcome to the research course guide for PO Classics 112, "Gender and Sexuality in Ancient Rome" This guide will help you find the sources you need for your public facing scholarship by recommending the main scholarly and primary databases, giving tips on search strategies, and finding online full text. It also points you to other, more detailed research guides in classics, ancient history, citation guides, as well as guide for more interdisciplinary topics
Just a few words about research that you can either heed or ignore: seen holistically, these different types of sources make up the scholarly conversation. Your research paper, responding to your topic and the sources you locate, is also part of the scholarly conversation. What you find in your sources may alter the trajectory of your research. In sum: research is an art, not a science, and as such it is not linear.
Please remember that I and other librarians are here to help you. Don't hesitate to contact me, any other librarian, or make an appointment.
