Note new course description (and topic, book list, and instructor):

Most research paper classes promote a divide between the object of study and work done by others on the object of study.  But this depiction of primary and secondary material as distinct tends to obscure the organic unity between them that good research papers demand.  Instead, this class will encounter texts that emphatically gesture towards their impact on and interaction with their scholarship.  The various innovative approaches to constellating creative and analytic work will afford you rich source material for your own research papers and more effective models for integrating the work of others into your own original thinking.
