Professor Seeman-Response to Unit 1

Dear Students,

Thanks for your hard work on these blogs and responses. We are off to a very good start. For future weeks, a few bits of feedback.


  1. In your title for your blog, please include your name and the number of the unit. For example: “What’s Kinship Got to Do with it? Don Seeman, Unit 1.” This will very much help us to keep track of things going forward.
  2. I am very happy that everyone has started off being supportive of one another! However, there is room for suggestions as well. Was there anything in the two blog posts you found confusing? Is there a way to make the writing even clearer? Please say so!


best wishes,

Dr. Seeman
