The Library subscribes to Sage Research Methods Online, a database with over 1,000 videos, books, handbooks, and journal articles focusing on research design and methods in the social sciences. This Thursday, September 6th, a trainer from Sage will lead workshops in Library L17 on using the tool. Snacks will be provided!
“An extraordinary volume that provides nothing less than a detailed cognitive mapping of the terrain for everyone who wants to engage in radical politics.”—Slavoj Žižek, author of Living in the End Times
“Keywords for Radicals recognizes that language is both a weapon and terrain of struggle, and that all of us committed to changing our social and material reality, to making a world justice-rich and oppression-free, cannot drop words such as ‘democracy,’ ‘occupation,’ ‘colonialism,’ ‘race,’ ‘sovereignty,’ or ‘love’ without a fight. —Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
“A primer for a new era of political protest.” —Jack Halberstam, author
of Female Masculinity
An update to the landmark 1976 Keywords by Raymond Williams, Keywords for Radicals explores the words that shape our current political landscape.
Each semester, Academic Support Services and Library staff host workshops for students on general study skills, research skills, quantitative skills, and senior thesis-writing.
