Description: This course is an upper level Division III research seminar, geared towards students in the initial stages of the Division III process. The primary purpose of the seminar is to provide a supportive and stimulating intellectual community in which students will create their Division III proposal. Working closely with our librarians, we will develop research strategies, learn how to find and use primary and secondary sources, refine our research questions, and learn how to structure an argument. We will examine diverse critical methodologies and interpretive approaches through shared readings and scholarly events. The class will be organized around students' projects in any area of the Humanities (Literature, History, American Studies, Art History, Architectural Studies, Performance Studies, Classics, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, Religion, Critical Theory, etc.) as well as hybrid projects that combine written inquiry in the Humanities with some form of artistic presentation.
