The Daily Dis & Recipes

I spoke (or wrote) too soon.  When I finally finish the sound files for the Daily Dis, I’ll post here.

I’ll email  files to people using their Wildcat email address.  SilvaLupus and WSULoki, I’m pretty sure I have your personal addresses and  will use them.

I’ll also post the sound files and recipes to Canvas, under the original course link – everyone should be able to access that.

If you have problems with access, etc., or would rather I use a different email address, let me know:

Once that’s all done, this blog will go on hiatus (from the Latin hiatus meaning opening) until I teach the course again in January 2014.

Changed due date

Yes, I’m still grading.  You will have until Monday, April 23 AT NOON to turn in revisions.  If you’re really have problems getting your final project done, email me and we’ll negotiate.

Extra Credit info

Want to do extra credit, but don’t remember what you’re supposed to be doing?

April is  Holocaust/Genocide Commemoration/Awareness Month.   All extra credit relates to that.

Option 1:  Attend the film, Witnessing Darfur: Genocide Emergency,  which was shown on Friday April 6  in the Center for Diversity and Unity, attend the discussion and blog about it.

Option 2:  Watch one of the movies listed below and blog about it (requirements follow).

All movies are on reserve in the library.   All are documentaries except Blood Diamond.

  •  The Reckoning: the Battle for the International Criminal Court 
  • The Devil Came on Horseback 
  • God Grew Tired of Us
  • Facing Sudan
  • Blood Diamond

(Most are about Africa because I got them for an African History course.  I’ll be adding others for next year.)

The blog post:  15 pts
Due date:  Thursday, April 19, midnight MDT

  • 200-250 words
  • Includes:
    • Name of movie you saw
    • What it had to say about genocide
    • I didn’t have this originally, but you should also consider the perspective of the film – whose point of view – an outsider, perpetrator, survivor, victim, etc. and how that affects content
  • Causes
  • Effects
  • Solutions
