With the structure and basic content of my research project very clear in my mind, it’s time to do the lit review! I must admit I was a little overwhelmed at first as to how to keep track of all my research and keep my direction clear, hence the delay on this post…

Nevertheless! I decided to make a Google doc of the aggregated resources I’ve found so far and conduct my literature review.
