Full Course Calendar (Fall 2023)
The open-ended structure of this class leaves you a lot of room for exploration, but it also might make it difficult to know where you’re meant to be spending your time each week. The purpose of this calendar is twofold: one, to give you a single canonical listing of everything you need to do in the class, and two, to give you an idea where we expect your time to be spent each week. If you find yourself unsure where to spend your time, check here!
Numbers in parentheses are our estimates for how much time you should spend on each task. Note that these can be hard to estimate as some tasks (e.g. “Investigate the literature and gather sources”) overlap significantly with others (“Complete Assignment 1”, where half of assignment 1 is to write about what you gathered).
