  • Critical Theory Research Guide
    A selection of significant databases and other sources compiled by UCI’s Research Librarian for Critical Theory.
  • Wellek Library Bibliographies
    The Annual Wellek Library Lecture Series at the University of California, Irvine was inaugurated in 1981 by UCI’s Critical Theory Institute as a tribute to Professor René Wellek and in support of new scholarship.  In the spring of every year, a distinguished critic defends his or her critical stance over the course of three lectures. Since 1985, UCI library staff has compiled exhaustive bibliographies detailing not only the work of each lecturer, but in some cases, much of the related secondary literature as well.
