Critical reading and presentation are two essential skills, and this assignment is designed to give you an exercise in these skills. The presentations should be about 1 hour in length, followed by 15 minutes of in-class discussion. There will typically be two student presentations per class.
Depending on the number of students in the class, each student will give one or two presentations over the course of the semester.
Slides for some of the papers may be available on the conference website, or on authors' homepages. You may use some material in the slides, modifying them as you see fit. However, be aware that most conference presentations are about 20 minutes in length, while your presentation should be 1 hour in length, and so you will need to include more material. If you use the authors' slides, be sure to "make them your own" -- you must understand what is presented on each slide and be able to explain it clearly.
Before you present your paper in class, you may make an appointment with Julia or Susan during our scheduled office hours to go over your presentation.
