Course wiki (webpage): This wiki you are reading is created for this course and we will use this site interactively for discussions, posting of announcements, assignments, preparing for group presentations and the like. Every student registered or auditing this course will have access to editing this page. Yes, you can freely edit the site, post your own work, make comments to your colleagues’ and professor’s postings. You will be asked to post some of your written assignments on the wiki. Please familiarize yourself with the wiki, and make sure to check the site regularly, at least before the beginning of each week.
The course wiki will be probably most useful in locating your weekly readings. Simply go to the Weekly Schedule page of the wiki and click on the readings: the links will take you either a digital text (article/chapter/book), an OCRA e-reserve item or a book on reserve at the Rock Circulation Desk. Changes in reading assignments will immediately appear on the wiki. For readings please please please, don’t rely on this printed syllabus, always check the wiki, since there will be occasional updates.
We will not use WebCT or MyCourses for this course. All materials will be posted on the wiki.
Our subject specialist (archaeology/art-architectural history) librarians Norine Duncan and Karen Bouchard kindly offered to help students individually with their paper topics or projects that involve library research. I encourage you to get in touch with them if you need help with library resources/research. E:mail your topics to: ASL@brown.edu
They can be reached at: Art Slide Library, List Art Center, 4th floor, Tel:863-3218.
