dmm (Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:28:16 GMT): Rollback: There are a few revisions that need to be made. I will put the details in an email: the GEP measures need to be firmed up and the critical essay that is worth 20% of the final grade needs to be listed on the course syllabus. The revised GEP measures should focus on the critical essay; that should fix things.
