Blog Assignment #2: Secondary/Theoretical Source Assignment: Each participant in the seminar will find ONE helpful secondary or theoretical source for ONE of the primary texts during the semester. Then, you will make this source available to the entire group (in the class dropbox) AT LEAST ONE WEEK before the relevant class session—and post a brief explanation on the class blog about your choice. Here, the sky is the limit. Consider some interdisciplinary forays into new disciplines and methodologies—everything from dis/ability studies to psychology and sociology and medicine. Your source doesn’t have to address the primary source for that week, although it can. You will speak about your choice of secondary text for 5 minutes (but not longer than 5 minutes) during the relevant class session.
