FAMST 101E: Articles

Course Guide to support FAMST 101E: Early Television to the Digital Era

About Articles

This page presents resources for locating journal articles that will be useful for your research in Film and Media Studies.  These are good places to learn what other scholars have already said about a topic, to identify potential primary sources for your review, and to locate gaps in scholarship where you can contribute to the ongoing conversation. To thoroughly research your topic, you will want to use a mix of sources including books, articles, media, and primary sources. Although not as comprehensive in coverage, journal articles are published more quickly and more frequently than books and monographs and are thus usually the best place to find the most recent discussions about a topic. No matter what type of source you use, be sure to critically evaluate the sources of your information using a method such as the ACT UP Source Evaluation Process.
