BQE Text FA21
November 20 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm
This is a reminder that the Text portion of the Basic Qualifying Exam (BQE) will be held on Saturday November 20th from 1:00pm–4:00pm.
Registration is required. To register, students will need to respond to the RSVP e-mail from Dr. Cory Wright at the beginning of November.
As the pandemic has not fully abated, we will pursue a hybrid format where some students will be able to take the exam in person and others will be able to take the exam via Zoom. The room locale and The Zoom link will be provided upon registration. Please get settled and centered before the exam, and arrive early as needed. Dr. Wright will be available to field questions as early as 12:30pm.
Once more, the two texts for this fall semester are:
Text 1: Bruno Latour (2004), Why has critique run out of steam? From matters of fact to matters of concern. Critical Inquiry, 30(2): 224–248.
Text 2: Hilary Putnam (1973), Meaning and reference. Journal of Philosophy, 70(19): 699–711.
Students are responsible for retrieving the texts. (For certain pedagogical reasons, the Graduate Committee deliberately does not post them anywhere. Both articles are easily available, e.g., via the CSULB library, BeachReach, and so forth.) If you have questions, please consult the BQE orientation handout. If further assistance is needed, please speak with Profs. Cory Wright and/or Nellie Wieland.
