Lectures and reading
There are lectures in this unit, but not every week. Lectures are intended as a first introduction to get you thinking: your principal learning resources are the books and articles you will read.
Bibliographies are given for each assignment. Students should regard these as a baseline and develop their work by identifying and making use of further bibliographical items in accordance with their own judgement. Many but not all items listed in the bibliographies are available in Leganto. For copyright reasons, when a book is recommended, no more than a chapter can be made available in Leganto. This does not mean that there is no need to read the rest of the book. Most of the items listed in the bibliographies are available in Macquarie University Library. OUA students may borrow hard-copy books via snail-mail.
A few older items are not available in Macquarie University Library. Interlibrary loans are one of the strategies which students may choose, in order to obtain these items where needed.
