After addressing concerns from and questions about the previous class meeting, discussion asked after progress on the Desc, of which the FV is looming. Talk then turned to treating readings, including Fernanda Zamudio-Suaréz’s 16 September 2016 piece in The Chronicle of Higher Education, “Professors Are Nerds. Or So Your iPhone Would Have You Believe.”
