First Meetings
The first lecture will be held on Wed. Jan 17, 2018. Somewhat confusingly, Friday, January 19th has been declared an "academic Monday," and so the course's second meeting will be on Friday, January 19th.

Snow Days (general policy)
We have built into the class schedule the potential for snow days. To avoid last minute uncertainty and confusion, we will not wait until Yale officially closes the university for snow (which only happens in the most extreme of blizzards). If the weather looks particularly problematic a few days before (e.g., on Sat. for a Mon. class), we will preemptively cancel via the class email list, which means it important for all to be on this list.
