Still deep in lecture prep mode, but in a different phase. I’ve cranked through reading pretty much all the relevant secondary literature and theory, with the exception of a few small holes that I’m hoping to fill in the next couple of days.
One of the fun things that has come about in this process is that ideas for small projects are cropping up left and right. In the course of today alone I identified three topics that have some potential. So that’s fun, though a little distracting while I’m trying to develop a really tight and intelligent lecture.
