30 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This seminar will be run by a single member of staff in a two-hour block meeting once a week except writing week. The staff organizer will select a sequence of 10 or 11 papers/chapters that are central to the subject area, to be discussed at a rate of one per week. Students will probably be expected to take turns in providing introductory comments at the start of the Seminar. They will then write a paper of 6-8,000 words for assessment purposes (with MA students having the option of doing two shorter papers), which could be more or less loosely related to topics in the Seminar. They will be entitled to advisory tutorials with the staff organizer on drafts of their paper.
