Second essay guidelines

Write an essay between 1500-2000 words on any subject covered in the seminar so far. If you wish to choose a topic not covered in the seminar but which is obviously relevant, please send me a rough outline first which we can discuss and decide on from there.

I've put a mock essay outline here, which you might find helpful.

The essay is due on the week of 6-12 June (on any day in that range, including the 12th). You may submit a hard copy or by email; pdf is preferred. An extension will be granted only if one has very good reason.
