This class will be devoted to interim reports and discussion of the “Starter Kits for Infrastructure Studies” assignment (readings and exhibits assembled by students on infrastructure studies in relation to particular fields or topics). Students will also report on progress toward their research blog posts (or planning for the alternative essay assignment). These “interim reports” can be informal, but students are welcome to prepare materials to show in advance (e.g., documents, online resources, slide shows). A convenient way for everyone to show things in class will be for students to bring their laptop and join a Zoom meeting the instructor will start. Students can then share their screens.
Other materials are online. Paywalled articles can be accessed over the UCSB network (or from off-campus by using the campus Pulse VPN service). You can also try to find open-access versions of paywalled materials using the Unpaywall extension for the Chrome or Firefox browsers.
