A brief note for the students registered for this course: As I announced in class on Monday, I am attending a conference next week, and so class is cancelled for Wednesday, August 31, and Friday, September 2. However, you will have two on-line quizzes to complete during that period. The first is due on Friday, September 2, and the second is due on Tuesday, September 6. They are available under the “Course quizzes” tab on the course blackboard site, accessible through my.rochester.edu. You will need to download the quizzes and then submit them to me via blackboard.
Also, I will post reading questions for Rousseau’s Social Contract Books I and II as soon as I can (as I’ll be traveling, my posting schedule is a bit thrown off).
