Note: The lecturer assumes that students will have read the relevant written assignments before each lecture. The lectures complement, rather than rehearse, the readings. The lectures also cover some material on which detailed readings are not assigned owing to limits of time. You will therefore understand the architecture of the lectures more easily if you have done the reading ahead of time. Introductory lectures on the nineteenth-century background will spill over into Week II and allow you to get ahead with reading assignments. Readings in Weeks V and VI are minimal so that you can get started on the term paper.
