This is the second in a series of three seminar classes. This class focuses on two things:
1. Helping you get started on your research. You will make a first (or another) attempt at writing a research proposal and wel will talk about how one might be done, sources of information and common proactice in referencing literature.
2. Sharing research ideas among colleagues. We are all pursuing similar interests so it would be nice to know what our colleagues and friends are up to.
