Tutoring: HUMA

Handouts and links to help you with revising your essays for content and grammar.

HUMA FAQ

Now that HCC courses are 100% online during COVID-19, we have added a box of virtual tours and collections to our ART tab that might interest you.  As we know, art is not created in a vacuum.  Even what we consider fine art is influenced by cultural factors.

Generally speaking, humanities essays come in 3 types:

  • Literature and Poetry (reading and writing)
  • Art (mostly visual)
  • Cultural Anthropology (mostly what is considered "Western Civilization")

Look through the other tabs in our LibGuide for additional resources in subjects that could pertain to your assignment.  For example, if you are writing about Thomas Aquinas, consider reviewing the resources in the PHIL (philosophy) tab.

For information about avoiding plagiarism and how to paraphrase and summarize, go to the Avoiding Plagiarism and How to Cite subject tab.

The websites we post are to help you, the student.  If you encounter a link that is no longer active (for example, some sites change their addresses), please, contact the Upwsing LibGuide's administrator directly so she can replace it:  ioanna.panos@hccs.edu.  To better serve you, be as precise as possible about the name of the link and where you found it.
