Reminders for Sources

Your Ethnographic Film Analysis needs:

  • At least two relevant academic, peer-reviewed sources 
    • 1 source for each theme
  • At least one other relevant and reliable source

Do NOT quote from your reference sources! You must paraphrase!

Tip from another student

"Consult with a librarian ASAP. Take time in searching for sources in various places on MegaSearch."

And another!

"Always try different word choices when looking for sources."


"It's ok to ask several questions about finding a relevant and reliable source during your research."
