(Note: this class does not have an exam nor a final paper.) All class meetings are organized as discussions.
Part of our class discussions will be on the common readings and part on students' efforts to explore the analytical tasks each week.
To overcome this limitation, you can "open" all the hidden sections to show everything on the page by clicking the § symbol at the top of the page.
(To restore the page to the normal condensed view, simply reload the page which will collapse all the "hidden" sections to their usual look).
