This activity asks you to examine your citation practices to understand whose viewpoints you are including in your research. You'll need a recent literature review or completed research paper that you have written containing up to 20 sources.
First, read Maha Bali's blog post where she explains why inclusive citing is worthwhile and how she cultivated this practice herself.
Now, review the works cited list of your paper or lit review.
For each author cited, try to identify the author's self-identified race and gender expression using published statements (e.g. social media, an interview with the author, a biographical statement).
