This is a project to develop a document for teaching graduate econometrics that is "open source", specifically, licensed as GNU GPL. That is, anyone can access the document in editable form, and can modify it, as long as they make their modifications available. This allows for personalization, as well as a simple way to make contributions and error corrections. The hope is that people preparing to teach econometrics for the first time might find it useful, and eventually be motivated to contribu

The New 'Jet'
John Ninos excitement is palpable. He cant wait to once again open the doors of the family restaurant, The Collegiate. The new Jet, that is. The next issue was how to insert The Collegiate into its new location. First, Ninos wanted to make the building look like it belongs in Alfred. After eyeing what locals call the Alamo building across the street and taking into consideration other structures along Main Street, he worked with architects to come up with a façade which mirrors some of the neig
21H.580 From the Silk Road to the Great Game: China, Russia, and Central Eurasia (MIT)
This subject examines interactions across the Eurasian continent between Russians, Chinese, Mongolian nomads, and Turkic oasis dwellers during the last millennium and a half.

21W.735 Writing and Reading the Essay (MIT)
As the course title suggests, this class is meant to acquaint you with the literary and rhetorical tradition of the essay, a genre which has been described by one scholar as "the meeting ground between art and philosophy," and by another as "the place where the self finds a pattern in the world, and the world finds a pattern in the self". Though the essay is part of a tradition of prose which stretches back to antiquity, it is also a thoroughly modern and popular form of writing, found in print

This question persists today, but it can also be countered with another: is building a monument the best way to commemorate that moment in history? What might other discourses, media, and art forms offer in such a project of collective memory? How can these cultural formations help us to assess the
