Tentative Future Readings

Created Tuesday 21 January 2020

For your benefit, I am posting here the TENTATIVE future readings for this class (which, ironically, are last semesters' readings).

Please note, while I do not anticipate that these will change drastically as they become "official" - they may change pending class progression and future events. Additionally, there may be dead links. Again, you are under no obligation to read these early, but I provide them for the benefit of those who like to get ahead:

An even older set
