Class assignments and grading

The class will meet as a seminar, so preparation for and participation in the discussions will be very important. We will first read the book by Melvin Small and prepare short papers on each of his chapters. Then each student will choose a topic for research and a longer paper (10-12 pp).

The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
