Tentative class schedule
Here is the (very) tentative schedule for the semester. Things will change with the schedule as seminar opportunities arise, as well as any unforseen events occur. Please note dates on which I will be traveling. On these days, we will either have guest lectures, or prerecorded lectures available over iTunes U.
