This page summarizes activities for students in the Alison Honors Forum section of Global Agenda 2001.

This class will meet once before the start of the lecture series. The first class meeting takes place Thursday, February 15 at 7:30pm in Memorial 125.

Thereafter, students in this section will attend the seven lectures in the series (see Speaker Calendar).

Students in this one-credit forum are required to attend and actively participate in all guest speaker evening public lectures. (See the speaker calendar for details.) Students in this section will be required to write one final paper, approximately 7-10 pages in length, on a question to be posed at the end of the semester. This paper will summarize students' appreciation of the themes discussed by the guest speakers.
The assignment for the final paper is available here.

Students in this section are encouraged to avail themselves of the readings and resources of the course to prepare for discussion of the issues raised during the guest speaker lectures. Students are also welcome to attend class discussions between guest speaker dates, but these are optional sessions - not required of students in the Alison Honors section. These optional sessions meet at 3:30pm Thursdays in Gore 117.

There is no separate syllabus for this section; you may review the main course syllabus.

Grades for this section will be based on the following criteria:
• Active participation and attendance at guest lectures - 50% of grade
• Final paper - 50% of grade
