This week I will be attending a waste-to-biofuels conference in Orlando, Florida. Ben Miller, your Instructional Technology Fellow, will guide you in using some research tools – including Zotero and Baruch’s library databases – so bring your computers and your research questions to class with you.
- Report to the class on something of interest that you follow up on from the conference website.
- View and recommend a site on Italian Futurism for next week (see below)
No readings assigned this week! However, next week we will be discussing Italian Futurism, an intellectual and artistic movement of the early 20th century. Click to expand video options for an introduction to this topic.
