Class Organization : The course will require considerable reading, critical analysis, and the willingness to participate in discussions. Class attendance is required because part of your grade is based on your participation in class discussions. Everyone is expected to: keep up with the current class day’s readings (available via e-reserve through the Oxford Library), come to each class with at least one discussion question based on the day’s readings, be prepared to participate in discussions on the research presented in these articles, and address specific discussion questions distributed in class or posted on Blackboard.
