Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Students are required to submit one research essay of approximately 4000 words on or before June 25 (worth 50%). A presentation, with an accompanying essay of 1500 words, worth 30 % will be delivered during one of our class periods.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Assessment for this course will be based on attendance, on the essays, the presentation, and on class participation (worth 20%). Grading of the essays will be based on coherence of argument, textual interpretation, quality of research sources, and writing style, and not on the position taken. The presentation will be evaluated according to your volume, pace, and tone, your demeanor, and overall delivery. You will provide the class with a handout and turn in a short essay based on your presentation. Since the class will be conducted in English, it is prudent for students to have a fine understanding of written and spoken English. There will be no examination for this course.
