The Core Papers provide students with an overview of their knowledge responsibility in these areas, detailing, for instance, concepts, topics, readings and sources. Students of the Core take up the task of developing and maintaining what amounts to a bibliographic mastery of — or responsibility for — the Papers, eventually able to capably and fully participate in informed discussions, evaluations and projects in each area, separately, and in an integrated manner.

Such framing may include discussions of periodization, orality and writing, primary and secondary sources, text and performance, argument and proof, analysis and belief, hypothesis and testing or theory and practice. Students should here gain a good, preliminary understanding of method and the stakes of making at times necessary choices among methodological options — or possibly altering them, even creating new ones.

Students (as well as their instructors) are expected to focus on such readings to ascertain their progress in developing and maintaining what amounts to a bibliographic mastery of — or responsibility for — the Papers.
