As of April 14, there are still a few details to iron out for this course, but the basic framework is in place. Click here for the latest partial syllabus.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be adding details to the assignment information and coming up with more readings and other course materials. If you’re a student going on the trip, however, an important part of the course will be thinking about words that have affected or inspired you in some way during your life. We want to hear from you about those words, so think about what you can bring with you. I’d also welcome your suggestions for reading materials beyond those listed in the syllabus as it stands.
In the meantime, feel free to peruse the version of the syllabus linked above and send me any questions you have about the course. There’s a contact form on the “Itinerary” post on the main page, or you can send e-mail to my university e-mail address (user name shill).
