Format: Class discussions will be interactive and structured to encourage maximum student participation.
Requirements: Take home mid-term exam, a final course paper of 10-15 pages and two shorter (1-2 page papers) dealing with the readings for the day. Students will not be allowed to enroll after the third class session.
