INTRODUCTION: Here are some basic sites for you to use in exploring cultural diversity issues.  It should be noted that many of these categories--especially the extremely broad ones such as "religion" and "women," do not pretend to offer a compendium of links to their subjects; rather, they attempt only to offer a set of links that helps establish the cultural diversity of the subject.  Please also note that the lists below are, at present, rather short: your additions and suggestions are welcome.  

WARNING: For accurate research, consider the source.  Sites containing ".edu" (education only) and ".gov" (government only) may be more accurate.  However, even ".edu" sites may be Web pages developed by one instructor or a single student and represent only his or her own viewpoint.  For Web site evaluation guidelines, click here: Evaluating Web Sources.

Disclaimer: Please note that the general Web experiences rapid shifting of sites, which come and go.  If a link below takes you to a dead address, I apologize and encourage you to inform me.  --Richard Jewell
