Regular office hours this quarter will be:

- Tuesday, 12:30 - 1:20
- Thursday, 1.30-2.20

Please feel free to email or telephone me to make 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 30 April, and a final paper (8 - 10 pages, 35% of grade) on Friday 8 June. You can turn in your papers as email attachments by midnight on the due day - for the midterm with a hard copy at the next class meeting. We'll develop paper topics during class discussions.

For the midterm you will initially be given a provisional grade, which can be improved by some rewriting following discussion of the first draft.

Tests: There will be two tests of your ability to identify the images displayed and discussed in class, the first on Monday 1 May, the second on Thursday 1 June. Each test counts for 10% of the course grade.

Participation in class discussion counts for the remaining 15% of the course grade.
