ANTG Journal Club

Every Tuesday, 10:30-11.20 am in Guthrie 075

This quarter we will do a structured class loosely based on Pickles in the first quarter, to make sure everyone has a basic core knowledge. I’m hoping a faculty member who is expert in that area will lead the class each week.

Your role as students is to actually read the relevant readings. You will be given a set of questions which may be asked of you in class.

The faculty member will start the class answering any questions you have about the chapter, and asking you questions about the chapter. We will not be going over the chapter in detail, since we are assuming that you will have read it.

The faculty member will then give a brief lecture covering additional material, with a focus on methodology. The idea is that at the end of the brief hour you will have the basic knowledge you need to understand a lecture on that topic.
