Owning the Intangible: Possession, Theft, and (Mis)Appropriation of Ideas

Miscellaneous Assignment 8: Papers for Discussion

Summary: In this exercise, you will obtain materials relevant to your research topic that you would like your colleagues to read.

Purposes: (1) To help you think more carefully about your sources. (2) To give the class more background information. (3) To provide the basis of discussion.

Due: 8:00 a.m., Tuesday, 28 September 2010

Background: Starting on Thursday, 30 September 2010, the class will be spending three weeks discussing your various research topics. In order to successfully discuss those topics, we must read materials relevant to those topics.

Assignment: Identify a few sources that can serve as the basis of a half-hour discussion of your proposed research topic. You can choose as many or as few sources as you like. However, the total length of the sources should be between fifteen and thirty single-spaced pages (enough to provide your colleagues with some background, not so much that you'll overwhelm them).

To Turn In: Email the class links to all of your suggested readings. (If you have any readings that are not available online, bring me printed copies.)
