BRING THIS IN EACH WEDNESDAY This reader supports the majority of your taught sessions (transcripts), contains texts and articles for you to read around these contextual issues and some guidance on plagiarism and referencing sources in your writing (full details in the Module Support Pack).

ANOTATE THE LECTURE TRANSCRIPTS The slide lecture transcripts in section 2 set out the main headings, issues and images used in the lectures and you should record the key points made in the sessions in the spaces provided. (Note that there will be small variations from the version delivered)
