  • Project or Paper Proposals/Discussions
    • Be prepared with a FORMAL presentation of what you propose for the class
      – formal meaning this should be a worked-out idea not just the big picture
      – the presentation can but need not include visuals
      – should address in what sense your project/paper intersects with narrative and media (!?)
      – should be no longer than 10 mins long (practice it beforehand to see), we will have ~5 mins for questions/feedback/clarification
      – should already reference the beginning of your annotated bib. and give a direction for the research for your bib
  • Discussions of links
    • Make sure you can reach and edit the networked doc
      – add some links
      – be prepared to defend how you choice ties to class themes.
