You can take a look at Feminist Standpoint Theory, which states that any choice of object of inquiry is influenced by one's standpoint--that is, where one stands in the socio-political world, as well as one's status and standpoint in the material world. It is not as relativistic as it sounds, though. It simply urges people to see the perils of claiming universal objectivity and applicability. They argue that any account/theory can only be partial, which is not a shortcoming since the human world is not so black and white as to be explained with one overarching theory.

There is no one way to do this. I use post-its and highlighters of different colors. I also keep a notebook by my side to note important page numbers (I include a brief summary of why the page is important, which allows me to explicate the most crucial aspect of its relevance). Nothing has helped me more than a notebook. Sifting through it also gives me numerous ideas. But to each his/her own, so all the best :)

Since you'd asked for some linked references, I am including a full PDF version of:
1. History at the Limit of World History (http://abahlali.org/files/Guha_history_limit.pdf)
2. A list of Sociology related texts for your perusal:

You can find much material about Feminist Standpoint theory online. Please look up Susan Hekman and Harding.

Hope these help!

Since you're working in the field of British Studies, I'd suggest examining historiography itself. Modern history is, to a large extent, contains and extends the colonial model of history. It excludes other indigenous forms of history-making. You can examine works that claim fiction can be historiographical. For eg: you can look at the feminist standpoint theory (its stance on fiction) and Ranjit Guha's History at the Limits of World History for starters.
