Regular attendance, preparation of the required texts, writing of at least six memos of the required texts.
In addition to the requirements of course participation, please write a seminar paper concerning one of the topics we discuss during the seminar. Your paper should be problem-oriented, vivid and argumentative. Thus, you will have a hard time saying much of substance in less than 4.000 words, and beyond 8.000 words, even the most diligent reader gets bored. Choose your question carefully – a good question will inspire you, and raise expectations among potential readers.
Please contact me if I can help you to find your topic.
Until June 8
Turn in a one-paragraph statement of intent on (a) possible topic(s).
Until June 29
Turn in an outline of your paper – one or two pages will do. (Please use PDF and send it by e-mail.)
Until July 13
Discuss your outline with me during my office hours. Please note: it is obligatory!
Until September 30
Due date: turn in your final paper. (Please use PDF and send it by e-mail.)
Until November 30
We will discuss your paper during my office hours. After our talk I will tell you the grading.
