Rick Lopez, from Amherst College, organized in January 2007 a two-day workshop where the participants discussed many of the new developments and challenges of the field. Participants have contributed with their syllabi and a small number of texts they used in their classes. It is a great starting point.
See below some syllabi, made available by our colleagues. Please send yours!
