Supports study and research in the Master of Arts in Cultural Studies.

Finding Peer-Reviewed Articles in Cultural Studies

Most of your assignments at the UW will require that you include at least some scholarly, peer reviewed articles. Peer review means the articles were read. commented on and corrected by experts before they were published.

The field of Cultural Studies is very interdisciplinary, so you may wish to try general-interest databases like Academic Search Complete, JSTOR and the ProQuest Platform

For more on understanding and using peer-reviewed articles, see the Library's YouTube Channel for a three-part series, Understanding the Scholarly Article:
