10/7/2010 -- Comments about 1st Film Analysis Paper; 2nd Film
Here is a hard copy of my
comments about your 1st Film Analysis paper (which I discussed
in class on Tuesday). I have also posted an example of an 'A"
paper on the "Class
Syllabus -- Course Requirements" web page under the section
about the 3 Film Analyses assignments; a hyperlink to this paper is
also located towards the top of the web page, under the internal
Also, the handout for the second film analysis paper can now be found
on the "Class
Syllabus -- Course Requirements" web page. For this
assignment, you will be asked to view 1 film out of a new set of
movies that highlight in some way the role of institutions within
the foreign policy making process. Please go to this web page
to view this handout. Don't forget that your next film
analysis paper is due 10/26.
9/9/2010 -- Suggested Reading added to course readings for
class on 9/9.
Hi everyone. I have posted a suggested reading that you might
want to check out. This concerns the threat of electromagnetic
pulse attacks upon the US. I will periodically list additional
suggested readings on the class web site that you might want to
check out. These will be items that fit with the topics
discussed in class and that I think you might find interesting.
While I might discuss some of this information in class, I will post
these reading materials on the class web site so that you can
explore them in more detail, if you want to do so.

War. Please check it out over the next couple of days.
