P‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍resentation (20 points): As specified in the “Class Schedule” below, each of you has been assigned to “present” on a day’s worth of course materials. Your presentation can focus on any aspect of the materials assigned for that day. In a word, your basic task in this assignment is exegesis—the critical, cultural, and conceptual interpretation of specific course materials—with the goal of providing the class with a broader and/or deeper understanding of concepts, theories, figures, and/or issues addressed in the course materials for that day. In particular, you should aim to do at least five things: 1. Support your arguments and interpretations with at least one high-quality secondary source (e.g., see those posted on iLearn, notably Dylan Evans’ book, An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis). Please be sure to cite your secondary source. 2. Directly relate your subject matter to other course materials (e.g., recent lectures and forum discussions, other figures or theories we’ve considered, other assigned readings, other presentations, etc.). 3. Illustrate the relevance of your subject matter to broader contemporary issues (., current even‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ts in public culture, recent developments in international relations, social interactions characteristic of everyday life, and the like). 4. Post additional audio and/or visual aids to facilitate the first, second, and/or third objectives outlined above (., a short film clip or audio track, copies of an exemplary poem, an image of exemplary painting, etc.). 5. Be prepared to respond to questions and comments after your presentation, effectively coordinating any online class discussion that emerges in response to your presentation. Your presentation should be 500-1,000 words long. You should post your presentation to the Discussion Forum on iLearn no later than 12:00 on the Wednesday of the week you are scheduled to present. See the “Class Schedule” below for your presentation date. When you are ready to post your presentation, please title your iLearn post “PRESENTATION” in ALL CAPS, include a subtitle of your choice (., “On Dreams”), and paste your presentation in the body of your message. If you are unable to paste your presentation in this way, you can attach a PDF or Word version of your presentation (no links to external sites like Google Doc‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍s, please) to your iLearn post.
