On this page you will find current and archival Discussion Questions. These questions are assigned throughout the semester — for each FAS section of the course only — to discuss on the Web.The discussion board is administrered and accessed at Harvard University's iSite Web site.
Current students can also find Sections information on this page, as it is made available by the TF'. Current students will participate in Web discussions on the Harvard iSite platform — this page archives only the Questions themselves. See the Exchanges page for current and archival e-mail conversations between Professor Nagy and individual students and TFs.
The archival Discussion Questions date as far back as Spring 2004. Along with past versions of the Dialogue Notes and other materials, the archival Questions provide a historical perspective on the course.
