Session 18: Midterm 02 (Premodern readings)
Topics for this session
❖ Midterm 02: Premodern Readings
The second of three midterms, this one checks how well the premodern "foundation texts" for this class have been analytically read. Some application of concepts presented earlier is also required. Further details are on the ASSIGNMENTS & TESTS page, when available.
Summer 2012: This is a 50-minute exam (approximately). The second half of the class is devoted to something else.

*THOUGHTS: Reading before class probably helps follow session content, reading afterwards might help consolidate notes, revisiting for tests is recommended. Content might be added before class or anytime up until about 24 hours ahead of a midterm.
*TEXTS, MULTIMEDIA NOTES, LINKS: If I have read from something, shown something or presented audio that is not elsewhere mentioned, I usually include that information here for the curious, sometime after the class (since I often make last-minute decisions about including something). It might take a while and sometimes I forget. You can email me.
*OTHER: When possible I note here names, places, and other details that I have mentioned in a lecture that would otherwise not be accessible in the assigned materials or easily located on your own. As with "TEXTS ..." this is usually sometime after class and, again, I might not be able to get around to doing it.
