I hope the material in this guide helps you with your coursework for Professor Seggerman's Representing Gender in the Modern Middle East course. This page contains information about research resources related to art history, women and gender studies, and general informational resources. Other pages include basic information about using the Rutgers University Libraries as well as suggested sources and examples of search terms to start you on your journey.
You will need to connect to the library's resources from off campus. There is a LibGuide that will help you get started using Rutgers Library Resources.
If you live too far away from any of the Rutgers Libraries to pick up a book you want, you can order it through your local library via Interlibrary Loan. Be aware that this process may take a long time, so plan your research projects in advance to allow for delays in delivery.
Please contact me any time with questions about research, or you can call the Dana Library Reference Desk during their listed hours of operation.
