For next class, you (the students) get to choose the readings. Sort of.
As part of your preparation for your final project, find one scholarly article (not a news article) that relates to the disaster that you plan to “design” in your final paper. Write a brief (5 sentence) description of why you’re thinking of using it; what new insight it might hold for the purposes of our class; and, one or two discussion questions for the class based on the article. Post your brief essay, full bibliographic information for your article, and a stable link to your article as a comment. Make sure you post a STABLE URL–this is not the same thing as the URL that you can copy out of your browser’s location bar. It will be listed on the webpage itself, usually at the very top or very bottom.
When you search for your articles, make sure that you are using the “Advanced Search” page interface of JSTOR (or any other database) in order to get the best, most relevant results. If you have questions about how to get good search results, ask the staff at Galvin either in person or remotely. They will be happy to help walk you through using the databases to best effect.
Upload no later than October 28th at 5pm. I will choose a set of 2-3 articles that go together well and post them on Blackboard for the class to read. Come to class ready to discuss the articles and what you’ve chosen for your final paper topic.
