In a fit of dissertation procrastinitus in 2004, I used EndNote to marshal all of WDB’s reading assignments, correct the typos, expand his citations to their full version, and reconstitute his syllabus, week by week, including both his required and suggested readings. In a nod toward transparency, I appended his original in the document. Additionally, you can download the EndNote file.
