ENGL 590: Race Relations in Early America

Secondary Sources

These databases are very useful for finding secondary research (criticism and theory) about literature. Search for the title of the book, the author, and/or a keyword phrase such as "early American literature" or "slave narratives".

These databases will be useful when searching for secondary research related to the time period or historical movement. JSTOR in particular includes journal issues back to the very first issue (limit your search to the decade(s) after an event happened to see what was written about it at that particular time).

Use the SmartSearch box below to search for more books. You can use the same searching techniques as when you're searching for articles, using quotation marks for phrases (ex. "race relations" and "early america").
