Throughout the course of this module, you will prepare 8 individual précis, which you will submit together in one document. These summaries correspond to the required readings for the 9 seminar weeks (weeks 2 through 10; you get one ‘free’ week off).readings for the seminars pf week 6,7,8,9,10 only can be searched on the website, I already provide the names of the articles, there is no files, I am so sorry for that.Dr Meier will select 4 of the 8 précis submitted for formal assessment and marking. It is very important for students to submit all 8, because if the marker selects a week for which you have not submitted a précis, you will receive a mark of 0 for that précis. Further instructions are provided below.A précis is a concise summary. This assignment requires students to demonstrate comprehension and understanding of the required seminar readings. Unlike a reading reflection, this assignment does not ask for your perspective on the reading. Instead, your task is to explain: what the author’s main argument/critique and key points are; and how those points are supported.You are not permitted to quote the reading. You must use your own words to explain the main ideas succinctly. Do not copy any sentences from the reading.Write a précis for 8 of the following 9 readings (you choose one free week off):1) Marx and Engels, Communist Manifesto – Preamble and Bourgeoisie and Proletarians2) Adorno, On Popular Music3) Benjamin, The Work of Art Essay4) Rosa, Dynamic Stabilisation5) Salazar and Córdova, Imperfect Media6) Collins and Bilge: What Is Intersectionality?7) Mladenov, Disability and Social Justice8) Fraser, Climate of Capital9) Nussbaum, Capabilities as Fundamental EntitlementsIt is very important that you submit all 8 précis: if the marker selects a week for which you have not submitted your précis, you will receive a mark of 0 for that week.A reference list is not required, but a formal Harvard citation is. Use the author’s name and the publication year in your first sentence – e.g., “Fraser (2021) argues …”Additional information for interpreting the marking criteria for assessment 1:• Knowledge & understanding: Did you closely read and demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the seminar reading?• Intellectual skills: Did you correctly identify the author’s argument/critique? Did you prioritise key themes, not more minor points? Did you identify the support/evidence used?• Presentation & referencing: Did you explain the author’s ideas clearly and concisely? Did you include an in-text citation for the reading?week 6 Salazar, J.F. and Córdova, A. 2008. Imperfect media and the poetics of Indigenous video inLatin America.
