Sexuality Studies 5620

This guide supports students in Professor Zoe Brigley Thompson’s Sexuality and Violence course


Welcome to the SS 5620 research guide! These pages will help you find primary and secondary source material through the Libraries’ catalog as well as online. On this page, you will find links to background or reference sources that will help you explore a general topic such as domestic violence. The tabs on the left link to pages dedicated to finding images, advertisements, newspapers, articles, and books. I am available to answer questions throughout the semester about navigating these resources and integrating them into your assignments.

I encourage you to send links to additional resources as you find them and we can expand this guide together.

I look forward to working with you throughout the semester as your embedded librarian!

Background Sources

Background or reference sources can help you acquire a better understanding of a topic before you begin a research project. They can also provide ideas for keywords to use in your searches and citations you may want to explore further.
