2) If you go with the option of reviewing a book/chapter/article, please be reminded that a review is not intended to be a summary of the reading but your critical engagement with the text, its argument(s), and methodology. To prepare for this task, re-read your notes related to the theme you have decided to work on, as well as your and your colleagues’ reflections and your notes from our class discussions. (Highlight for yourself what might be good for you to work with, what might inspire you to write a snappy book/article review — 1500-word —, what 1 or 2 questions you might ask, what 2 or 3 points you might make, what literature — which pages/passages — you might use in this process).
3) While you’re reviewing the notes and reflections, browse through the texts we have read so far related to your theme, and see what you can highlight in those texts as particularly fruitful – any details that signal some important themes. Warning: do not just state themes. Rather note details (with references to page numbers) and, for yourself, make a note of how those details in different texts we’ve read highlight one or more themes. Also, pay attention to the context within which those details took place.
