Regular office hours this quarter will be:

- Monday, 11:30 - 12:20
- Tuesday, 2.30-3.20

Please feel free to email or telephone me for appointments at other times, or to continue discussions from class. Classes, meetings and library work take me out of my office for a large part of every day, and the department can't afford voice mail for faculty, so email is a more reliable channel than the telephone.

Papers: A midterm paper (6 - 8 pages, 30% of course grade) is due on Monday 7 November, and a final paper (8 - 10 pages, 40% of grade) on Thursday 15 December. You can turn in your papers as email attachments by midnight on the due day, with a hard copy under my office door the following morning. We'll develop paper topics during class discussions.

Tests: There will be two tests of your familiarity with the books discussed in class, the first on Monday 7 November, the second on Wednesday 7 December. Each test counts for 10% of the course grade.

Participation in class discussion counts for the remaining 10% of the course grade.
