On Thursday, Nov. 18 we will have a structured work session for your group projects. (Presentations will be Nov. 30 - Dec. 7). The purpose of this session is to problem-solve both methodological and conceptual questions arising in your projects. Please focus on methods and analytical issues: the detailed substantive issues will be the focus of your actual presentations at the end of the month.
To aid this process, each group needs to submit, via email, brief answers
(1 sentence to one paragraph) to several questions (see below). I
will use these answers to structure the discussion.
EACH GROUP MUST PROVIDE ANSWERS TO EACH OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS AND MAIL TO THE CLASS LISTSERVER BY *WEDNESDAY, NOV. 17*. (ONE SUBMISSION PER GROUP.)
PROVIDE ANSWERS TO EACH QUESTION BELOW (1 SENTENCE TO 1 PARAGRAPH each).
BE CONCISE AND SPECIFIC.
