Seminar 4

This seminar is a bit different. Instead of discussing a question, we will discuss the essay plans of anyone who prepares one in advance and brings it to the seminar.


  • Identify a question for your short essay;
  • do some background reading; and
  • produce an outline for the essay
  • plus a list of readings.


You can take one of the suggested questions from the list provided:

Or, if you prefer, you can propose your own question (which will need to be approved before you can submit the essay).


Ensure that your plan specifies ideas and arguments in detail.  A wishlist is not a plan.

Ask a Question

Your question will normally be answered in the question session of the next lecture.
