Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall Room 202. The class roster listed sixteen students, one fewer than at the last class meeting. Thirteen attended.
Discussion opened with questions regarding letters of recommendation before asking after student progress on the conference-length paper. As part of the latter, mention was made of the Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities, which had been advertised to the instructor; it offers a venue for select student papers to be presented. Thence discussion moved to textbook materials concerning the status of women in seventeenth-century England.
Attendance was assessed via the usual style of quiz. Students are exhorted to keep up with the assigned reading.
