Students presented their prospectuses. Specifically, we asked them to cover four points:
What is your research question?
Why is it interesting?
How will you tackle it?
What sources have you found? (The idea here is to make a case for thinking that your plan will succeed.)
Today we had presentations from Peter N. (consequentialist justifications of punishment), Peter T. (political attitudes of athletes at liberal arts colleges), and Tommy (commodification of the Olypmics).
The class picture is a tradition of mine. This year has something special: an action shot from a crazy angle! (The tripod fell over as the timer went off.) Thanks to Zeke and Remy’s quick thinking, I can laugh. And the picture is pretty good!
Well, that was interesting! Here we are properly vertical. If you click the picture, it should fill the screen (knock on pixels). Thanks for a great term!
