Presentation: 50%

Students will set the stage in the first 5 minutes by presenting their thesis or dissertation topic (or topic of interest for those still developing a thesis). Then they will present a vital research article relevant to their topic, but ideally something they have not yet mastered, so that the seminar provides both public speaking experience and enhanced mastery of the literature. Everyone will read the article in advance of the presentation, and an informal discussion will follow. Students will be graded on their presentation and evaluations of those by other speakers. Grades will be based on presentation 50%, participation and written critiques 50%.
