During the class, you will
Each class will have required reading. Please read the assignments critically and well, as your readings of the material will form the basis of classroom discussion. Please bring your texts to class (you may print them out or bring a laptop or e-reader. You may not use your phone).
Attendance and Class Participation
Missing class will negatively affect your grade. Please be on time, as late arrivals disrupt the class. Preparation and participation are essential for this class. Please be prepared to discuss reading. If you miss more than four classes, you will receive an “F” for participation. Two latenesses count as one absence. Class participation is worth 15 % of your grade.
Please submit at least three images to the student gallery on our class site. These should be 19th – early 20th century images, related to the material we are reading. Visual material is worth 5% of your grade.
Response Papers (on the Discussion Board)
You will post response papers (250-500 words) at least three hours before each class meeting on the class discussion board. Response papers are meant to be speculative. Ask questions; investigate textual elements that puzzle you; use the response papers to gather feedback for your own ideas. Response papers are worth 15 % of your grade.
Students will be responsible for two presentations during the semester. The presentations are worth 20% of your grade.
Please choose one of the following:
The final project is worth 45% of your grade.

The faculty and administration of Brooklyn College support an environment free from cheating and plagiarism. Each student is responsible for being aware of what constitutes cheating and plagiarism and for avoiding both. The complete texts of the CUNY Academic Integrity Policy and the Brooklyn College procedure for implementing that policy can be found at this site: If a faculty member suspects a violation of academic integrity and, upon investigation, confirms that violation, or if the student admits the violation, the faculty member MUST report the violation.
Disability-Related Academic Accommodations
Note regarding Student Disability Services: In order to receive disability-related academic accommodations students must first be registered with the Center for Student Disability Services(CSDS). Students who have a documented disability or suspect they may have a disability are invited to set up an appointment with the Director of the Center for Student Disability Services, Ms. Valerie Stewart-Lovell at 718-951-5538. If you have already registered with the CSDS please provide your professor with the course accommodation form and discuss your specific accommodation with him/her as soon as possible and at an appropriate time.
Evaluation criteria for class participation
Your class participation will be judged on the basis of your respect for class members’ comments and your attentiveness to the discussion (people who don’t like to speak frequently will not be penalized, but you should make an effort to participate). I also expect that your participation will reflect your having done the reading for each class.
