Schedule of Papers
Each tuesday, two students will present three papers
The presentations should be prepared for 20-30 minutes and figure another 15 minutes for questions
There will be two “assigned” papers on a related topic
Using the references or google, students choose a third article that is related
The presentations will not be exhaustive summaries of the papers, but cover key themes, insights, “whats new and different”
Students are expected to have read the papers as well
