Dear students, 

essay grades have been uploaded. Most of you did very well. However, there are some recurring problems that you should be aware of: 

  • some of you completely missed the format – you wrote commentaries or pamphlets instead of academic essays;
  • many of you do not know how to use sources and have major issues using references; you should deal with this problem for your own sakes;
  • majority of issues, however, emerge from the famous 'last minute' syndrom. 

Those who scored 300 have completed the course with an A (5, excellent). Congratulations! 

Those who need to resubmit need to do so until January 29.

If you want to discuss your essay, I'll send you comments and you can come and see me in my office. 

Once I collect the information from the other teacher, I'll upload the table with your points so that you know your score before you take the exam. 

See you tomorrow in the class. 


Best, Marijana

Dear students, 

here are several important information: 

1. uploaded is the list of seminar groups; please DO NOT switch between groups unless you find yourself a replacement,

2. uploaded is the list of seminar presentations that have been registered so far, along with the dates; I urge  students who have not registered yet to do so ASAP. If you are presenting in a pair and you attend different seminar groups, you'll be assigned to a particular seminar group on the date of your presentation. On all other weeks you shoud attend your original seminar group. Please bear in mind that seminar presentations SHOULD NOT BE mere descriptions of individuals, their actions or events. You should link your story to key concepts and theories we study in the class. You always need to choose a perspective to tell your story from. You can present your case using whatever format you want (PPP, video, podcast ... ). Be creative, be interesing, be convincing, raise questions ... ;  

3. uploaded is the list of the essay topics along with instructions on how to write an essay;

4. and last but certainly not the least: the union has announced that the next round of strike on universities is going to take place on Wednesday, 06/11. As it seems now, all classes on Wednesday will be canceled. The seminar on Tuesday, 05/11 will also be canceled. Please pay close attention to the intranet and further notices. Should this continue on Wednesdays, we'll probably schedule our next lecture on Tuesday, 12/11. 

Best, Marijana
