This guide was created to help you with research for your POL 138 research project. As your topics are fairly interdisciplinary, I'm including as much information as I can find on a number of different topics. If you still need help finding research on your individual topics, feel free to contact me. I'd be happy to meet and discuss your topic, and include any information we find on this guide.


Feel free to set up an appointment with me, if you have any questions or need any help. To set up an appointment, you can email me, or click the Book Appointment button underneath my picture on the left side of the page.

I'm always happy to speak with POL 138 students about their topics, and help them find appropriate resources. However, I am not a specialist in all subject areas. If a group picks a topic outside of one of my subject areas (Political Science, Criminal Justice, Philosophy/Religion), I may refer you to one of the library's other subject specialists.

If you need more help with the research process, Milner Librarians have created another guide to help with initial questions about the research process. Click this link for more information!
