# Lecture/reading/presentation schedule

Below is the class schedule. Friday class meetings typically involve discussions of research papers. Reading memos for each paper are due at the respective discussion time. The paper to be discussed is linked on the schedule. Underneath discussion papers are supplemental reading that will help give context and understanding to the main paper for our discussion. These supplemental readings are recommended, but not required.
