Provides graduate students with knowledge and experience in the advanced literature review process including construction of the literature review as product. One of the primary skills graduate students must master is advanced review of a body of literature for the research project. Mastery of the literature review process influences quality and sophistication of claims developed to justify research, with the written review clearly delineating the unique contribution of the student’s research and the knowledge gap that it fills. The literature review as a product is a strong written argument that builds a case from credible evidence based on previous research. CROSSLISTED as ANTH 515, CSSA 515, WGSS 515.
