  1. These questions would form a perfect starting point for developing your LIB200 theme. You should feel free to use the seminar as a way to think through and build a syllabus around the ideas that you find interesting — starting in the February meeting, we should have more time to really work on syllabi, so keep track of the questions, themes, and readings you’d like to work with, and we’ll help you make them work for an LIB200 course.
