Course Description

This is an open group which anybody is welcome to join. Over the course of the semester we will meet four or five times to discuss a text that everybody has read and prepared for that day. The Reading List is open to suggestions by all participants, and we will decide at the beginning of the semester which books we are going to read. Students who are interested in participating are kindly asked to send an email to cyprian.piskurek@udo.edu. The first meeting will take place on April 12.
