Seminar 2 instructions (Mon Sept 24)

Our next seminar will be held on Monday afternoon. Here are the instructions for how to prepare for that seminar:

1) Read through all the 24 magainze- and future-related topics in the blog post directly following this blog post. I harvested these topics from your essays and from our guest lectures. As I am abroad right now and kind of busy, I did not have the time to fix things up further (for example spending more time putting these proposals up a "logical" order, writing better descriptions etc.).

2) "VOTE" HERE for your three favorite topics. These are the topics you could imagine yourself working with during the project phase, or, that you at least would like another group to work with during the project phase. Your vote is a vote on interesting topics - not a pledge of yours as to what you want/will work on during the project phase. NOTE: perhaps I was better at formulating certain topics than others - but your task is to see through and look beyond these short descriptions and imagine what these topics could be developed into!

3a). Preferably: You are inspired by the 24 topics, but you realize that we have missed an excellent topic/suggestion that should have been in this list. Write a short text about this topic (50-150 words) and bring it on paper to the seminar on Monday. You can use bullets to make you idea/topic more clear. Don't forget to write your name on the paper!

3b) Otherwise: If you can't think of a new topic, take one of the topics and "develop" or specify it further. Take the topic one step further ("to the next level") and bring it on paper (50-150 words) to the seminar on Thursday. Don't forget to write your name on the paper!

4) NOTE: We all meet in the seminar room Q33 for initial information. Please be on time as we will divide you into seminar groups as quickly as possible after we start! Late arrivals will have fewer options!
