Syllabus

Each week new readings will be added to the syllabus below. The items labeled class reading will be shared and discussed in our class sessions and there is no need to pre-read them. They are provide here in high-contrast, 20pt-font PDFs. Additional reading may be posted below as well—they are intended to supplement the materials we cover in class and are not “required assignments.”

In addition to SVARA’s Community Norms and Accessibility Guidelines (links on the left), we will be observing some practices specific to this class which you can review in this document (PDF).
