This is the home page for COR 400, Radicalism and the American Experience, at Le Moyne College. This version is designed for the Fall 2017 semester. This page is currently under construction so please report any problems to Cliff Donn.

Syllabus: Here you will find a link to the syllabus and reading list for COR 400. This includes a description of the course requirements, the schedule of topics and activities, the reading assignments, supplementary reading materials, and the expectations that the instructor has for the students and that the students should have for the instructor. If you are registered for the course, you will be provided with a "hard" copy of this but you can print one out from here if you need another copy.


Office Hours: This will link you to Cliff Donn's office hours and teaching schedule for the current semester. You are welcome to drop by or to try to contact me at times other than my office hours. Those are just times when I try not to schedule activities that take me out of my office. However, I am around and available at lots of other times.


Announcements: Here you will find announcements of changes in the class schedule and reading assignments. You may also find postings of job announcements, relevant meetings of clubs and professional groups, lectures, etc. Please check this link regularly.


Reserve List: This is a list of all the items I have asked the library to place on reserve for the current semester. It should include everything on the reading list. If you cannot find something on the reading list on reserve, please check to see if it is here. Please report any problems to Cliff.


Assignments: This is a list and explanation of the assignments which students in COR 400J may do to meet the requirements of the class.


Format: The format and writing style for any written assignments in COR 400 can be found here. This includes information about citations and information about plagiarism and how to avoid it. Note that certain citation styles that may be acceptable in some of your other classes (e.g. APA, ASA) are not acceptable in this class. There are also format requirements in terms of margins, font, etc.


Slides: The powerpoint slides presented in class on each topic can be found here after the topic has been completed in class.
