RULES FOR INDEPENDENT STUDY ON MARX:
1. FOUR PAPERS. Each about 10 pages long. They can be on topics of your choice, but they
need to show close, careful reading of Marx; they may also involve contextualization of one kind
or another. You don't HAVE to go beyond what we are reading, unless the material compels you
to do so. I strongly suggest that you find topics that fit with your trajectory/interests in the
department. If you are doing a third field in World History, for example, then you might want to
develop a couple of the papers on Marx and methods in world history.
First paper due at start of Session III.
Second paper due at start of Session VI.
Third paper due at start of Session X.
Final paper due by the end of the semester, HOPEFULLY BEFORE FINALS.
