As you analyze the materials be sure to clearly identify who you are discussing (including relevant information on individuals’ or groups’ gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, race, region, religion etc.)—as well as the historical context in which they lived (events of the time period, social/cultural norms, etc.).
