Movie night

The movie night I mentioned in class will be November 8, 6-8 p.m., CUE 318 : The Man Who Would be King (1975; 130 minutes; Sean Connery and Michael Caine). Although it's not directly related to our novels, it is based on a story by Rudyard Kipling and shows one side of 19th-century life. If you come to the movie night, you'll receive a 10/10 quiz grade to substitute for any one quiz.

Midterm grades

Midterm grades will be calculated using the average of Exam 1 and Paper 1 only (not quizzes or blogs because they are still ongoing). Midterm grades are NOT BINDING--that is, they are only an estimate.

MASC visit tomorrow

This is just a reminder: we meet at the MASC on Tuesday, 10/2, instead of in our regular classroom. The MASC is on the lower level of Holland/Terrell library. When you enter through the main entrance (not through the CUB), you will see the MASC if you go down the stairs into the circular area; there’s a sign that says Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections.
