    • Which people involved in it are interesting to you/you want to follow?
    • Which issues in it you are most interested in/want to follow?
    • Which sources of information will you consult?
  2. Post your short paper on Moodle, and, if you like, also on your blog.
  3. You might also post links to news sources you will be following.
  4. Reflect on what you would like to know about the person you are interviewing for Essay 1.  Bring 4 or 5 questions you would like to ask in the interview.
