Black Studies News, Spring 2005
Hey, everyone. I'll be putting announcements on this page having to do with course requirements, changes in these web pages, and other matters. I recommend looking here every time you visit the course web site--at least once a week.
Here are my office hours for the rest of the semester. After my regular hours today, I'm available by appointment on Thursday afternoon after 1 pm, and, during the exam week: M 10-3:30 (from 1:30-3:30 I'll be in Thompson E-120 with my ENGL216-02 class, but anyone is welcome to stop by); T 9-3 (from 9-10:30 I'll be in Thompson E-316 with my INDS/HIST 220 class, but anyone is welcome to stop by); W 1-6 (from 4-6 I'll be in Fenton 176 with my ENGL/INDS240 class, but anyone is welcome to stop by), F 1-5 (from 1:30 to 3:30 I'll be in Thompson E-120 with my ENGL 216-01 class, but anyone is welcome to stop by); and by appointment.
Hey all, I've moved the due date for the third critical essay back to Friday, April 29, 2005. Plus, I've added the World page to the site.
Here are my office hours for the rest of the week: T 10-1, W 2-3, Th 2-4, and by appointment.
Hey all, the assignment sheets for the third critical essay and the final project are up and running. Please check them out soon and let me know if you have any questions about them.
Hey all, I'll have some extra office hours this Thursday: 1-3:30, 5:30-7.
Recap of office hours for this week: M 2-4, T 10-4, W 2-4, TH 2-4, F 2-3. I'm available to discuss mid-term grades, past or upcoming writing assignments, or any other aspect of the course. Drop in or make an appointment to see me!
The assignment sheet for the second critical essay is up and running. Please take a look at it and let me know what's unclear about or missing from it. It's never too early to start thinking about the second essay, as about half the class will have to do both it and the third one to meet the requirement to have completed two critical essays in the course of the semester, and some of the people who did the first one may want to go for the extra credit option of doing all three essays and having their lowest grade dropped.
Hey all, I just found out I have an emergency meeting scheduled for 2 pm today, so I'm changing my office hours to 2:30-4 today. Sorry for the late notice!
Hey all, I apologize for cancelling classes and office hours yesterday.
Hey all, the introduction to the City unit is up and running--check it out this weekend when you get a chance.
Hey all, I have to change my office hours tomorrow from 2-3 to 11-12. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Hey all, I've updated the assignment for the first critical essay, so check out the new option. I've also added Maria Stewart to the readings for M 4/4--please make a note of it.
The assignment for the critical essay is up and running. So far only the link for the first critical essay is active.
Hey all, I have to change my office hours for today due to a candidate visit and a doctor's appointment for my daughter: 10-12 only. I'll be adding extra office hours on Thursday to make it easier for people to meet with me this week: 1-5.
Please be sure to take a look at the Country page for an introduction to the unit we're beginning on Monday. Have a great weekend. Also, please note that I've added Toni Morrison's essay "The Site of Memory" to the readings for M 2/7--see Section VIII of the main page for the details.
