I've been meaning to bring this up in class for the last week, and only today during office hours, while talking with a member of the class, did I suddenly remember: given that many of you are science/math/otherwise non-English majors, you might want a pointer or two on how to start your research.
The key thing is this: don't use Google Scholar; it's crap when it comes to the humanities. And don't start with JStor -- you'll get there, but it's not the place to begin. Begin on the library's home page (http://libraries.claremont.edu, but please don't tell me if you didn't already know that), and in the center of the page, click on the "most used databases" drop-down menu. What you want is the MLA Bibliography; everything published in literary and cultural studies is indexed in this bibliography, including all of the journals in JStor or Project Muse, but many, many others besides. The MLA Bibliography also indexes articles in edited volumes, which no other electronic database will help you find.
So: MLA Bibliography. Start there. If you find yourself stuck, talk to your friendly neighborhood research librarian; Gale Burrow is the literature specialist, and she'll likely be tremendous help.
