Block 1 Lecture Notes


We’re moving in to Block 2 this week and turning to contemporary China. If you’ve not had a chance to look at the notes for the lectures for Block 1, here’s some quick links for you:

Take a look at the outline for Block 2 and the reading for each week, as well as the next couple of assignments. See you Wednesday, usual time and place!

File sharing and blog editing


As I’ll explain in the first lecture, I’ve set up a Dropbox folder to share important files with students on the module. In order to get access you’ll need to provide me with a bit of information using this form. (If you’re not a student on the module, ignore this post!)

If you already have a Dropbox account, you’ll get instant access. If not, wait until you receive an invitation and you’ll be taken through the process. It’s free, and very useful!

You’ll also be invited to be a contributor to this blog (again, more info in the lecture). On the form I ask you if you already have a WordPress account. If you don’t you’ll need to set one up which you can either do now, or wait until you receive the invitation and do it then.

Fill in the form by the end of week one. In fact, why not do it now?!
