Both Teaching Fellows and instructors are encouraged to review the Teaching Roles and Responsibilities document prior to starting each term.

Report of Dissertation Prospectus Committee

Immediately upon successfully defending their dissertation proposal, the student must submit the signed report to the department administrator.

Application for the Dissertation Defense

At least six weeks prior to the anticipated date of defense, the students must submit the completed Application for the Dissertation Defense to the department administrator. 

Reading Lists

The reading list for each zone is intended to be a resource for faculty and students as they create syllabi, prepare for exams, and conduct research with a zone focus. We understand the lists as starting points for shared conversation and inquiry. As such they do not comprise a comprehensive canon of work in any of these areas. Faculty who teach a zone seminar or who administer a zone exam will consult the list and draw from it, but they will not include all the works that appear on the list and will add other works that do not appear. Students who focus on a zone will draw from it when tailoring their exam list in consultation with faculty, but they are not bound to stay within it.
