Testing Trackbacks

Some students have reported their trackbacks aren't appearing... if that ever happens, you can just post a comment on the page the course website, and say something like "My trackback doesn't seem to have worked, but I wrote about this at [give the permalink of your entry here]."

Seton Hill Weblog Tutorials

If you are new to the SHU blogosphere, you should start with Tutorial 1.

If you already know the basics of blogging, Tutorial 2 introduces the concepts of Trackbacks (two-way links, which will help you keep track of the work your classmates are doing, and also how I am asking you to post your Agenda Item homework assignments).

Additional blogging instructions are available on the New Media Journalism website, as are tips on how to personalize your MovableType blog.

Book List for Jerz's Classes, Spring 2007

Students do not need to purchase their books through this page -- you are welcome to buy them from anywhere. These links are for your convenience.

EL 150: Intro to Literary Study

If you already have a copy of King Lear or you don't mind using one from the internet, you don't have to purchase the one I recommend. But the one on this list has good notes on the language, which is why I recommend it. All the others are required. If you want to get ahead in your reading, I suggest that you start with A Good Man is Hard to Find (we'll read the whole book) and King Lear.

EL200: Media Lab

If you already have a recent copy of AP Style, you needn't purchase a new one.

EL312: Literary Criticism

Berger's book is a mystery novel that attempts to teach about postmodern literary theory. If you'd like to get a head start, read that book, as well as Pale Fire (a novel).
