One of the objectives of this course is to identify potential research topics (for articles and/or for dissertations). For this assignment, students must write a 2-4 page outline for an article related to the readings. Students can pick the week, the topic, and the selection of readings on which they want to write the outline.Ideas for these outlines will germinate during class and as students do the readings. The outline should identify a gap in the readings or understanding of the phenomena, and present a wedge/hook for a paper topic.
