ENGL 400: Critical Procedures in Language and Literature: Home

A guide to resources for students

About the ENGL 400 guide

Frank LentricchiaThis online guide to research at Bonnie Bell Wardman Library (or "LibGuide") is intended to assist students as they prepare a paper in the major in partial fulfillment of the requirements for dAve pAddy's ENGL 400: Critical Procedures in Language and Literature ("critpro").

As with the general English language and literature LibGuide, we intend this course site to be fluid, ever-changing, and dynamic as users contribute commentary, assistance, (constructive!) criticism, and suggestions for including additional resources.

Ideally, future critpro students will be able to capitalize upon and augment the discoveries and knowledge collected by the current community of critpro reader-researchers. 

To this end, we strongly encourage current students to help improve the guide throughout the semester via the spaces allotted for commentary on individual pages, and/or by emailing the reference librarian (link at right).

Thank you for visiting!
