You have accepted an invitation to a gathering. Imagine it as a party, if you like. You don’t know anyone there, but you assume you have something in common with them, because, well, there you are. Some people have been there for a while; some people are just arriving. If you’re one of those people, what do you need? An introduction. Graduate school isn’t a party, but it is a gathering. This course introduces you to graduate study: to the academy and its practices, to the community of this department, to the nuts and bolts of research. And, of course, to theory. Not so much to the various modes of theory or to individual theorists (though we will do some of that), but to theoretical thinking itself—why you might want to do it, and how to make it a habit.
