Ottawa) is scheduled for the fall term of 2001 on Thursday evenings, 
6-9 p.m. in 2203 Dunton Tower (a different time & room than originally 
advertised). Classes will emphasize discussion rather than lectures,
with guest speakers and videos utilized to bring voices of direct 
experience to the course. 

This course also provides a good foundation for 04.441 - A Seminar in United
States Studied: The United States and Political Repression. This will be
offered in the winter term of 2002 on Tuesdays (4:00 - 5:30) and Thursdays
(2:30 - 4:00).

in 2215 Dunton Tower, or bill_skidmore@carleton.ca, or 520-2600, ext. 2359.
