These are not readings in the usual sense of the term, but rather a kind of “Exhibit A” set of examples of my own publications written when I was a Ph.D. student. All are available online at our class website, http://faculty.washington.edu/ellingsn/Ethno_Prof.html. The main purpose for making them available is not to read thoroughly and discuss their contents, but rather for you to look them over to get a general sense of their variety and types of subject matter and journals.
