The readings for this term have been assembled from on-line journal articles. These can be read in hard copy at the library but it is most convenient to access them on-line via the York University library website. On campus access is easy, and access from home is easy with a user ID and PIN. The articles may be read online or downloaded as .pdf files for access later. These journal articles are the required readings for the course, there is otherwise no textbook to buy.
