The overall structure of the course will be similar, but I will be rethinking the details of paper assignments, adding references and associated [non-mandatory] readings, perhaps assigning class members to lead off discussion each day, and otherwise tweaking things. Check periodically for details. Note too that I have a couple conferences in NYC and Michigan, so watch the schedule, once posted, for dates when we won’t meet (unless bad weather leaves me stuck in Lexington). Ditto the dates for SSA, for speakers (likely one mandatory evening event in March!!) and so on.
