Welcome to Week Eight

Hope you are all having a great week. Since papers are due at the end of this week, there is no prompt response due. However, please do the readings anyway (don't forget to look at the syllabus to see a complete list of readings!) - this week we are thinking about quality vs. demand in fiction - some pretty weighty issues. Do we spend lots of money on titles that are popular but that maybe aren't the greatest critical hits? Do we try to push people towards more "quality" books? Who defines what is a quality book and how? What is the role of reading? So many fun..fun questions to talk about - I really picked the wrong week to have your papers due!

So, due by the end of this week:

1. Special Topic Paper
2. Women's Lives and Relationships Annotations:

  1. Hi! Canvas is down and I would like to get started on the paper, but I do not have the rubric or description saved on my computer. Could you send me a copy via email at taylorlascott@gmail.com? Thank you!

    1. Unfortunately, I have all my files saved on master profile on canvas. Because of this I will put an extension on the paper. This is so frustrating, I hope the site is up soon. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!
