Pre-writing Exercise

Jeff– Is there anything we should do to prepare for the pre-writing exercise on Tuesday?

    You don’t need to do anything in particular, but the assignment will be about phenomenology. So one thing you can do to give yourself a leg up is to do any or all of the following:

    (a) Identify some phenomenon, artifact, problem space, etc., that you are really passionate about that would potentially benefit from some sort of phenomenological analysis

    (b) Identify a phenomenological concept or theory that either really speaks to you or totally confuses you

    Having (a) and (b) will be sufficicent to come up with a pretty cool paper idea.

    The other thing you might do is review the readings on phenomenology so far, or finish them if there was one or two you missed, or you might reread an earlier one, now that your understanding is deeper than it was at the beginning.

    Thanks for asking this!
