WR121 Crumrine

Research guide for Paul Crumrine's WR121 students, who are writing a research paper exploring a specific fact, belief, cultural attitude, or event about our past.

LIFE magazine

Browse for a general topic

For your assignment, you will study issues of LIFE magazines until you discover a specific fact, belief, cultural attitude, or event about our past that you didn’t know. (One interesting facet about LIFE is that if you find an article in a certain issue, then you will find the letters to the editor about that article two issues later. Those letters can sometimes provide valuable information.)

Your topic could include a fact, belief, cultural attitude, or event fitting under any of the following general subjects (you are not limited to these, though!):

  • theatre
  • culture
  • art
  • clothing/ fashion
  • customs
  • education
  • advertising
  • politics
  • film
  • sports
  • American attitudes and opinions
  • foreign affairs
