Updated (HUM425)

I will redeem myself in classes to come for the spectacular failure of phase two of the jigsaw exercise. In any case, we managed to get some good work done. Next week we will complete our discussion of The City and the City, screen clips from Blade Runner, and prep for the midterm. For those of you who are interested in a fuller understanding of the midterm format please see https://analepsis.org/midterms/.

I have updated the syllabus to reflect the changes decided upon tonight. The midterm is scheduled for 3/18. This pushes our readings back a bit. Note that on 3/18 we will also initiate a discussion of Ursula LeGuin’s The Dispossessed.

Working (HUM425)

We’re going to do quite a bit of in-class work tonight. You should have your copy of The City and the City. The Gibbs’s book would be useful as well. Recall that the assignment due is to have read Mieville’s novel in its entirety.
