Research Blog #3

Three academic sources:

  1. The Influence of Fraternity and Sorority Involvement: A Critical Analysis of Research (1996-2013), by J. Patrick Biddix, Malinda M. Matney, and Eric M. Norman. (From Research Blog #2)
  2. An Examination of Drunkorexia, Greek Affiliation, and Alcohol Consumption, by Rosie Marie Ward, Marina Galante, Rudra Trivedi, and Juliana Kahrs.
  3. Death by Hazing: Should There Be A Federal Law Against Fraternity and Sorority Hazing?, by Devon M. Alvarez
  4. The Dark Power of Fraternities, by Caitlin Flanagan
I have read through some of each of these sources that I found through the Rutgers library online site. I think each source I've listed is really going to help me focus on my now narrowing topic of hazing in Greek life and it's relation to alcohol. A similar theme in each one of these sources seems to be that no matter the hazing or claimed "ritual" a greek organization has, it almost certainly involves alcohol every single time.

  1. You should definitely read the section on hazing from The Influence of Fraternity and Sorority Involvement, but this is more a research guide than research. Look at the specific research they cite that interests you most.

    Also, work on getting complete MLA citation info. A good guide is the Purdue OWL:
