HIS382UTM Nationalism in Modern South Asia

A guide to support the article interpretation and book review essay assignments in HIS 382 - Nationalism in Modern South Asia


This guide is designed to support the assignments in HIS382: the article interpretation and the book review essay.

As you complete your article assignment and read Event ,Metaphor and Memory you may need background information and definitions to help you understand the context of the works. The Reference Sources section has a range of sources to assist you.

The tab for Book Reviews provides several approaches for locating book reviews.

The Finding Books tab will assist you in locating books and explains the newest version of UTL resources.

For journal articles you should consult the Finding Journal Articles section. Remember 'Summons' and the search 'All' aspect of the new system doesn't provide an indepth coverage of history - use the specialized databases listed to access information on history and related studies.

A final note, please ensure you acknowledge your sources and avoid plagiarism. The tab 'Chicago Manual of Style and Writing Help' provides guidance for the Chicago Manual of Style and links to sources to assist in the writing of your assignments.

Don't hestitate to ask for help if you need it.The UTM Library offers a wide range of assistance as indicated by the 'Help' box on this page. However, if you are hunting for specialized items please contact me - I am in the Liasion Librarian box on this page.

Best Wishes

Elaine Goettler,

Historical Studies Librarian
