WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BECOME AN EXPERT IN?

Final paper / project assignment, part 1:

By next Monday, find a topic(s). Talk, email and/or otherwise contact Professor Nobis about it, to check out your topic.

This should be a sex and/or gender-related philosophical or ethical topic: it can’t just be “pure” social science or science or some other merely observatory study. For it to be philosophical, there must be either some analysis of a concept or some normative claim(s) (about what’s morally right, wrong, just, unjust, should happen, etc.) presented and defended.

Professor Nobis will have a list of possible topics soon.
