I need to find an online article that also serves as a comprehensive guide to recent sociological scholarship on environmental and social movements.
OR try for example:
sociological scholarship on masculinity or migration or health & illness or doing gender
anthropological scholarship on hiv / aids or global health or settler colonialism or ethics & morality
Searching for dissertations:
A) How many Concordia theses from the Sociology & Anthropology department include the term decolonization?
B) Can you find Kregg Hetherington's PhD Dissertation: Guerrilla auditors: transparency, democracy and rural politics in Paraguay
A) In a world with Google Scholar AND your own 'Discovery Search' in it, why use anything else for your research, such as smaller subject-specific library databases?
B) What are some ways you can FIND subject-specific databases?

Citation chasing and tracing:
A) Have authors citing Leanne Simpson's Dancing on our Turtle's Back also written about food sovereignty ?
Can you create a bibliography in APA format for the citations in your folder?
How can you login properly to JSTOR, EBSCO, AnthroSource or any other library database?
GETTING YOUR HANDS ON THE FULL TEXT OF ITEMS:
How can you access the following:
Chew, Dolores. "Feminism and Multiculturalism in Quebec: An/Other Perspective." Canadian Woman Studies 27.2 (2009): 84-92
And can you find and access this?
Archer, M. S. (1990). "Resisting the revival of relativism." In Globalization, Knowledge & Society: Readings from International Sociology (pp. 19-33). London: Sage Publications.
a) Is it really possible that we don't have it?
My supervisor keeps mentioning Simon Springer's Handbook of Neoliberalism, which I can't seem to find.
b) If so, what can I do to get my hands on it?
After a very successful conference presentation of yours, the editors of Sociology Mind journal invite you to submit your paper for publication.
How should you proceed?
