5 p.m. Friday night (Oct. 28): for writing assignment # 8, find a space on campus that is meaningful to you. Take one or several photos while you are there, and use them to develop a claim about how space relates to/informs/structures/illuminates class and education.

8 p.m.
Sunday night (Oct. 30): in our on-line forum, make TWO postings:
1) of your image, along with a brief description of why you chose it and what you see in it
(we'll give short tutorials then on how to upload images on Serendip)
2) in response to our on-going dialogue w/ Parkway students.

III. Jen inviting us to reflect on "the economics of space"!

can space designed for one use be claimed/reclaimed for other purposes??
