Oxford Bibliographies and Student Speech and Debating


Oxford Bibliographies is uniquely positioned to direct the research that students carry out to prepare for policy debates, forensic speech, and other debate formats. Because Oxford Bibliographies offer exclusive, authoritative research guides across a variety of subject areas, students using this resource are likely to find bibliographic essays on whatever topic they seek. Combining the best features of an annotated bibliography and a high-level encyclopedia, the cutting-edge resource provides student debaters with critical introductions to new topics. Oxford Bibliographies also offer debaters clear directions on what books, articles, and other material to read next to gain even deeper insights into a given issue, regardless of which side they may eventually be arguing. Oxford Bibliographies are also regularly updated to reflect new research and emerging trends, ensuring that students of debate and forensic speech are up to speed on current issues.

Recent topics selected for the National High School Level Speech and Debate Tournaments are covered by numerous Oxford Bibliographies, which can serve as a springboard into each issue. We invite you to explore a select group of articles, listed below.
