I sent this as an email to the accounts listed on ilearn. Send questions to the comments field of this post please.


The course blog is analepsis.org. Everthing you need to know is there. Look at the tabs at the top of the page for the syllabus, the electronic version of the reader, and the course filmography. The Passport tab contains directions for your first graded assignment. This is an easy A.

I want you to bring hard copies of every reading we discuss in class. You can print out the reader in your own time or buy a bound hardcopy at Dragon Printing at 450 Taraval off of 19th. If you’re headed toward Geary it is on the right.


Truth told buying the bound hardcopy is probably the cheaper option unless you have access to a free printer.

The bookstore notified me that it may be difficult to get a copy of David Hawkes’s Ideology (2nd ed.) initially. There is a pdf version of that text on the Free Books page of the course blog but, again, you’d need to print it out.

On Thursday I will give you a “pop” quiz and you’ll do group work. I hope to see you there.
