For our Thursday, March 12th meeting:

Have a draft of your 25-word abstract of Schmidt’s article. You’ll get time at the start of class to edit/refine these in groups. Remember that the abstract must be one sentence, with exactly twenty-five words, summarizing the main argument of the article.

Read Octavia Butler’s short story “Speech Sounds” and create at least 3 entries in your dialectical notebook in response to the story (new folks: check out page 56 onwards in the very first course packet article called “Active Reading” for more information/examples on how to set up a double-entry/dialectical notebook).

Skim Judith Little’s introduction to Feminist Philosophy and Science fiction: Utopias and Dystopias if you have time (it’s right before the Butler story in your course packet).
