Good morning! I had technical difficulties over the weekend (reached my usage max with my domain), but thankfully, those issues have been resolved. As I mentioned in class, I am asking students to be responsible for one reading over the rest of the semester – your comments will start our discussion of that particular reading. So, for your reading, come prepared with a summary/analysis, discussion questions, comments, or anything you think may be helpful to the class.
Below is the list: one student per line. Please respond to this post with your choice; all readings are first come, first served. You will notice that readings are still in flux for the last two days, and I will post those as soon as possible.
