Schedule and Office Hours

Important Announcements and Updates

Wednesday, January 17:
As announced in class this morning, I am changing the schedule already. For Monday, be sure to read
The Proclamation of the Irish Republic, 1916 and  James Joyce, Dubliners: The Sisters (1-11).

Also, as of this afternoon, we may not have class in the Haskell Room on Mondays; we may be moved to yet another room, one that does not involve stairs. Be sure to check Banner and this page for updates.


Tuesday, January 16:
As of this afternoon, we will not have class in Y-A/B on Wednesdays. Rather than meeting in the computer lab in Bradley Hall as originally scheduled, we will meet in South Hall, Room 101 on Wednesdays. Also, please note: although your schedule indicates that we meet in Y-13 in Bradley Hall, that is the English Department office. We are actually meeting in the Haskell Room on Mondays, on the second floor of Bradley Hall (beside the computer lab, Y-216).
