The course calendar (above) provides new readings and lecture notes (usually pptx pdfs) and lecture and discussion questions (LDQ) to consider before the lecture. The course syllabus sets out the requirements and code of conduct for this course, which will not change (that said, keep the paper copy you get on the first day of class, it is a contract of sorts). The syllabus also has all the required textbooks and other readings (most of which are available as pdfs) If in a course related document you find a url that starts with www.fordham.edu other address try replacing it with www.gdsnet.org/ and send us an email immediately so we can fix the url (before you get to class). Also let us know if you have trouble viewing videos, transcripts or subtitles are often available for the PBS documentaries… American Factory Documentary Top 1% Occupations

In 2008, an American factory shut in Dayton, Ohio. Nearly, 8 years later, it reopened. Only this time, the owner was a Chinese billionaire who imported 100s of Chinese workers who were to train the Americans in Chinese factory floor culture. Fascinating. pic.twitter.com/Q8nQWn3Dov— Keerthik Sasidharan (@KS1729) August 25, 2019
