The seminar will meet each Wednesday for the entire year, from 9:00 - 12:00 in STH 318. The day of meeting may change in the second semester. Section numbers are used to differentiate the two semesters for registration purposes; section A1 is for the Fall (2 credits) and section B1 for the Spring (2 credits). Both semesters are required for full credit.
The work of the seminar will be divided among those participating. Aside from films and visiting experts, presentations by students and discussion will be the usual procedure.
This is a fast moving seminar, with reading-response papers substantial due almost every week. Those papers and seminar participation are the basis for the grade.
