There will be select opportunities to earn extra credit, limited to attending events related to the themes of the course. For example, events hosted by Emory’s Institute of African Studies, the Institute for Developing Nations, or the Interdisciplinary Workshop in Colonial and Post-Colonial Studies will count. To earn credit, write a response of 500 words or more discussing the event and how you would relate it to the course. Post this on our course site, under “Event reports.” If you are unsure if an event will count, ask me in advance. There will be no other ways to earn extra credit. Plan in advance if you anticipate wanting additional credit. The amount of credit awarded will depend on the response’s thoughtfulness, engagement with course themes, and quality of composition.
