In this section you will find a full set of references and background materials in support of your assignments. We suggest you read them carefully before sitting down to make your first entries.
The seminar is based on lively interactions between professor, guest lecturers and students of different backgrounds, cultures and nationalities. All students are asked to complete the assignments that appear in this section. For the record, 60% of the final grade for the seminar depends on the participation of the student in the seminar, including the four written assignments (“Quick Reports”) that are listed here. The final report counts for the remaining 40%.
