Methods in Critical Race & Ethnic Studies

Background Information

Reference sources, like dictionaries, encyclopedias, and almanacs, provide you with background information on a topic.

Wikipedia, for example, is a reference source. The World Book Encyclopedia you may have used when you were young is also a reference source. However,  there are also specialized encyclopedias that focus on particular subjects or disciplines.


I ran a search for black feminist literary theory in Credo Reference, and I found an entry called "black feminist criticism" from A History of Feminist Literary Criticism that gives me quite a bit of information.

The linked references in the bibliography can also lead me to other important sources about black feminist criticism. The yellow UCeLinks buttons will either take you to the source or prompt you to request it from another library.
