discussion space

I hope that we’ll use this space for two purposes: to continue discussions that are left incomplete in class, and to begin discussions that you intend to continue as part of your in-class presentations. Any time you’d like me to post a discussion question for you, simply email it to me; to respond to a discussion in progress, click on “comments” below the entry.

The first day of class will be Wednesday, September 1.
