Contemporary Scholarly Sources and a Theoretical Orientation
We use historical sources as researchers in order to provide ourselves with the necessary depth to allow for us to develop an understanding of the context that embed our projects. In a similar manner, we also turn to a study of the contemporary scholarly sources in order to give ourselves the necessary breadth that will make it possible for us to accomplish the same goal. When the two research methods are combined, it enables us to arrive at a basic theoretical orientation, one that is specific to the individual scholar but which ties his or her work into the broader trends in the scholar’s field of study.
