Assessment and permitted materials

Students must prepare written papers (in groups of at most two students) and present them to class. A first draft of the paper has to be handed in two weeks before presentation Papers may be revised to create a final version (due at the end of the semester) after presentation. For each paper, two discussants will be assigned who have to prepare a brief (about one page) discussion statement on their colleague's work. Active participation in classroom discussion will also be evaluated.

The total score for the course is therefore based on:
Seminar paper (55%)
Presentation (20%)
Discussion paper (15%)
Active participation in discussions (10%)

All papers submitted will be checked for plagiarism and rules the rules published on our homepage will be strictly enforced.
