Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
• Assignment: Reading of source text(s) in translation to be downloaded from Moodle and active participation in their discussion. You should send two questions on the assigned material from you to me (e.g., something that is not clear or something that conflicts with what you know). I will also give guiding questions to help you think.
• Max. 2 absences (beyond that, extra work will be required). Please get in touch if you cannot attend a session.2. 2 short reaction papers (10% each, ca. 300 words) after Week 5 and 8 on a single source chosen among the ones already assigned for the single sessions.
• What is a reaction paper? What you found interesting (and why), what was unexpected, what was not consistent with what you knew before.3. 1 short class presentation (20%) and 1 paper (ca. 3000 words, excl. footnotes and bibliography, 20%).
• Please schedule a meeting with me before the end of Week 5, so we can talk about the topic of your presentation and paper, and before the end of Week 8, to discuss your presentation/paper outline. Start thinking widely about what sparked your curiosity (and put that into the reaction paper maybe!).
• Presentations will be at the end of the course in Weeks 11 and 12.
• Deadline for the paper: February 28.
