SPAN 394: Global Coloniality and Catastrophe: Find Newspaper Articles


Newspaper articles tend to be brief, focused and event-oriented.  If you want details about how a specific place dealt with a particular problem, newspapers are often a good source, although of course not academic.

We rely on access to individual newspapers, which means:

  • The amount of access granted by the newspapers will vary.
  • The search capability is often limited.
  • The amount of archived material is often limited - if you want information from the last couple of years, they'll probably have it, but if you're looking for information on an event that occurred ten years ago, it's possible they won't have it.
