The first half of the class sessions will be lectures. The latter half will be built around student presentations. Students are required to make a presentation and then to submit a research paper relating to the seminar topics. Active class participation is an integral part of this seminar and will be expected of every student.
The grade will be based on class attendance, participation in discussion, a presentation, and a research paper (minimum 15 pages, typewritten and double-spaced).
