Contextualizing a text

History and Theory

Try a broad search

Whoa. Stop for a second.

Are you searching for your TV show or movie or book and finding nothing about it?

Stop. It's not here. Using our discussion of the scholarly conversation, think about how researchers may be writing about themes in your texts. Stop searching for scholars talking about your specific text. It's up to you to make connections between the research and the themes you see in a text.

This is the 'they say' part of research.
