Post here your articles, editorials, legal transcripts, or texts. Please include 1-2 sentences summing up your text and telling us why you think it's important (that is, what do you want the class to know before discussion?).
International human rights conventions:
The Nuremberg Charter (1945)
Jacques Derrida, "Before the Law"
1. Each group should post 1-2 questions about Zong! to this blog. Each question should be its own post on the blog. Note that the questions can be inspired by the section your small group is reading, but they should address the text as a whole (i.e., they should be questions that can be answered by reading another section).
2. Each individual should respond to 2 questions by Monday at 10 pm.
Over the next few weeks, we will use this blog to collect your reading responses to Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White. For each writing assignment, you will have the option to choose between 2-3 prompts. Craft at at least two well-considered paragraphs in response to one of the prompts. Your paragraphs should incorporate textual evidence (quotes!) into your observations. These are not intended to be mini-essays -- your thoughts can be fragmentary, exploratory, or inconclusive. You can experiment with posing questions or take up conversations started in posts from other members of the class. Think of your reading responses as information-gathering for your (eventual) paper, opportunities to work through ideas that interest or challenge you.
Responses are due by 10:00 pm on the night before class (W for Th classes, M for T).
Post your paragraphs as responses/comments to the blog headings.
Arthur Conan Doyle, "A Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Adventure of the Speckled Band"
