November Writing Project:
Thesis Projects: Collaborative Meeting Notes

Writing Projects - Undergraduate: Collaborative Meeting Notes

  • The November Writing Project Choose what you would like to write on, and write every day. You ought to have a healthy project by November 30, when the Novel Writing Project comes to an end.

Writing for Fun - Because It's Good for Us: Collaborative Meeting Notes

  • The November Novel Index Join jeanne in writing a story. Or use your hand-made and hand-painted book to tell a story. Don't forget how much this has to do with Gofffman's Presentation of Self in Everyday Life!

  • Or create a doll like Ena did, where we see the complexity of emotions. Remember to link that to reactions that don't go through the process of reason, even though sometimes we try to force them to. (Jonathan Lear and knowingness.

  • James Joyce, Ulysses, and Finnegan's Wake. Arnold's Project. Arnold decided to return to the reading of the Classics, and decided he would read Finnegan's Wake. One hour later he decided we should make this a joint project. So after the November Novel I am committed to reading Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake, and to putting up summaries as a Collaborative Writing Project. Now, that may sound crazy, but look at this: "Joyce anticipated many of the insights of semiotics, poststructuralism, and postmodernism." See Beyond the Word.

    • COMING INTO ONE'S OWN An outstanding site by Professor Andreas Teuber of the Department of Philosophy at Brandeis University. The site includes:

      • Examples of Plagiarism Scroll down about two-fifths of the file, to find the example of plagiarism in which the student changed the words, did not copy directly, but lifted the ideas and structure of the paragraph. This is the easiest plagiarism to commit, so you need to look at it carefully, and be sure you understand why and how it's a no-no.

        Scroll down almost to the end of the file to find:

        "Plagiarism by unacknowledged paraphrase and/or use of ideas:

        In Othello, Shakespeare makes frequent use of animal imagery. The specific images he uses are generally distasteful and convey to the reader a constant impression of conflict and misery."
