Seminars led by Scott Denham
Ein Seminar am Davidson College im Herbstsemester 2023. Mit einem Parallelkurs in Englisch durch DavidsonLearns. Die zwei Seminare sind getrennt, außer am Ende des Semesters, wann die Gruppen dann einmal feierlich zusammenkommen, sodass die DavidsonLearns Teilnehmer:innen die Referate der Davidson-College-Studierenden zuhören und kommentieren können.
A Davidson College seminar, fall 2023. With a parallel course through DavidsonLearns. The two seminars are separate, except at the end of the semester, when the groups meet together in a celebratory way so the DavidsonLearns students can hear the presentations of the Davidson College students and offer comments and questions.
We will be using these editions. It is important for everyone to have the same edition so we can refer to page numbers.
