This Guide is intended to help students in POL 4800: American Dissident Thought (Capstone Seminar) design and carry out successful research papers on topics in American dissident thought. Your seminar is exploring the claim that a tradition of American dissident thought exists, and your research papers will test this claim (or some aspect of it) using an empirical case study.
Each page in this Guide covers finding tools for identifying and using sources in the published research, with an emphasis on materials useful for the investigation of American dissident thought and related social movements.
If you have any questions moving forward, please feel free to contact me using the information on the right. I am happy to assist you with any aspect of your project.
