There is no final exam, but in case we fall behind please be aware that I may call a make-up class on this date.
Even if your paper is not ready, plan to come to class anyway in order to participate in the peer review activities.
Class this week will be replaced by a visit to the CEA conference in Pittsburgh. (We can arrange carpools. The English club and several faculty members have expressed interest in attending; I am actually giving a presentation on academic blogging on Saturday.)
A student membership in the CEA costs $15.
Registration for the conference costs $50. That's very reasonable for a three-day conference, and it's inexpensive when compared with the cost of a textbook.
Students who cannot attend any of the CEA sessions should contact me before March 1, to arrange for an alternative assignment.
I will be presenting on Saturday, March 28, but you don't need to attend my session.
Damned Critic: Arnzen versus William Carlos Williams, Part 2
Michael A. Arnzen, whether he knows or not, has written a poem in the shadow of "The Red Wheelbarrow" and all those other snappy little wonders Williams used to jot on his perscription pad, whiling away the moments between seeing patients as a baby doctor.
Your casebook paper can be on the same topic as your class presentation, but I'm not asking you to read that paper out loud word-for word.
Feel free to meet with me before your class presentation, so we can discuss your ideas.
