TUFTS EMAIL ACCOUNT POLICY
Please be aware that the university’s primary method of communicating with students is through email. We will do our best to limit the number of emails that you receive from us but, in many cases, including information about registration, bill payment, campus emergencies, special events, and Commencement, email may be the only communication used. It is your responsibility to check your Tufts email account regularly. If you use another email account, please make certain that you forward your Tufts email to the account you regularly use. For information about how to forward your email, go to http://ase.tufts.edu/its.
August 2008 We are pleased to welcome you as a member of The Fletcher School community! One of the most unique aspects you will encounter is the diversity of beliefs, cultures, values, and aspirations represented in our students, fellows, faculty and staff. The perspective of every member contributes to the strength of this community and indeed defines it by providing invaluable firsthand information. You are therefore encouraged to share your views, listen carefully, and be respectful in your actions and words. However, this is often more challenging than it may appear. Academically, we are trained to analyze rationally and calmly intellectualize and dissect the complex issues that abound in this world, which often includes examining crises that occur during the school year. In our academic pursuits, in class or out of class, in our debates electronically or in person, it is easy to forget that some members of the community may be impacted on a very personal level, and we can inadvertently be insensitive to their realities. As long as world crises and conflict continue and Fletcher remains diverse in its membership and goals the potential for such misunderstandings will exist. Mastering civility and mutual respect, finding common values and building community cannot be taught in a classroom or acquired by reading a textbook. Theses traits are the very core of diplomacy, and often require considerable experience to manage well. This uniquely diverse community provides the opportunity to develop and hone characteristics that will serve your academic, professional, and personal life regardless of where your ultimate career path leads you. They will become aspects of your character for which you will be respected and remembered. We expect that your time at Fletcher, in a diverse and multi-cultural community, will promote a more balanced and self-examined life, while providing you with the knowledge and skills to contribute ultimately to the resolution o f the critical tasks confronting our global community. Again, welcome to The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University! Sincerely, Stephen W. Bosworth, Dean Gerard F. Sheehan, Executive Associate Dean

Preparation for the Comprehensive Exam: Students should prepare a reading list that is organized by topic area (their own choosing). P200 is required. This is a comprehensive field exam. This process often requires several iterations. Relative emphasis of topic areas may vary among the student reading lists depending upon major source of interest. at least three other courses in this field must be completed before the comprehensive exam can be taken if PST is one of three PhD fields.

International Security Studies Required Coursework: The P240 Role of Force course is required of all doctoral students with ISS as a field. In addition, at least three other courses in this field must be completed before the comprehensive exam can be taken if ISS is one of three PhD fields. If ISS is taken as one of two fields, P240 is required, together with four other courses from the ISS field. Reading Lists: The ISS reading list will be the basis for the written exam questions and will serve as preparation for the oral exam. It should contain the following items: ! ! ! a cover sheet that includes the name of the student, date, proposed comprehensive exam date, coursework in ISS, semester taken, list of reading topics; a bibliography for each topic on the cover sheet which should include the all the readings listed in the syllabi of ISS courses taken by the student; and additional readings from other literature that the student feels would complement the list.
Upon providing this information to the field coordinator, the student will either receive approval or be asked to modify the list. Students can expect to have a final list within six weeks of the initial exchange and at least three to four months prior to the comprehensive exam. Students should also consult with the ISS faculty members whose courses they have taken. ISS faculty may be asked to submit questions and to grade answers to those questions that they have submitted. A single exam is given. This is a comprehensive field exam. While you may choose very different specific examples, it is expected that all students understand the fundamental concepts and how to use analytical tools from multiple disciplines in answering the exam questions. The exam may be taken using a computer, but you should not access the internet for information during the exam. Written Comprehensive Exam: A single ISS exam will be administered during each comprehensive exam period (four per year). Students will have a three-hour period in which they must answer two out of three essay questions. Exams are closed-book and may be taken on computer. Please note that Fletcher honor codes apply. Each student is responsible for scheduling the date of the exam, reserving a room in which to take the exam, and printing the exam prior to the end of the three-hour period. All exams are administered through the Registrar’s office. Students may request to see exams from previous years. A file is maintained in the Registrar’s office. Students opting for two fields including ISS will be expected to answer three questions. If the ISS examination is taken as one of three fields, it will be for a time duration of three hours. If it is taken as part of a Ph.D. in two fields, it will be an exam of four-and-a-half hours. Written exams will be graded as “Pass,” “Fail” or “Withhold” by the field director. Students may retake the exam only once should they fail. It will be graded on the following criteria: ! ! ! ! knowledge of authors and literature on the approved reading list; understanding of fundamental concepts in the ISS field; ability to employ appropriate analytical tools in answering exam questions; and the ability to assess strengths and weaknesses of the literature.
Oral Comprehensive Exam: Students may not advance to the oral exam if they do not receive a “Pass” or “Withhold” on the written portion of the comprehensive exam. The Registrar and/or the field coordinator will notify students of their grade. Students should then contact the ISS field coordinator for any comments before taking the oral comprehensive exam.
The oral comprehensive exam is scheduled by the Registrar’s office. It lasts one hour with 20 – 30 minutes per field. Students may select the order in which the three (two) field coordinators will pose questions; however, they should expect that each coordinator may interject with questions and comments as appropriate throughout the oral exam. For the ISS field, questions for the oral exam stem from one or all of the following categories. Students may be asked to: ! ! ! ! clarify an answer provided on the written exam; answer any of the questions listed on the written exam; comment on and/or cite any of the literature and/or authors in the approved reading list; and/or apply items in the approved reading list to cases or current events.
Should a student fail the oral, upon conferring with the other examiners, the field coordinator will determine whether a retake of the oral alone or both the written and oral is required. A student is permitted to retake the exam only once. After a second failure, the Ph.D. candidacy will be terminated. Pacific Asia The Pacific Asia field is not currently structured to serve as a field of study for candidates seeking a PhD at The Fletcher School and, therefore, has no standing guidelines for comprehensive examinations. Candidates who began coursework at The Fletcher School prior to Academic Year 2004-2005 or who wish to offer a special field of study involving coursework about Asia are welcome to consult with Professor Alan Wachman. United States Students preparing themselves in the United States field should propose, for early consultation with the field examiner, a list of five to seven topics or themes that should, altogether, cover: (1) U.S. relations with nearly all of the major geographical regions of the world, (2) U.S. diplomatic history in most of its historical periods, including the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as well as the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century, (3) at least one of the “classic” themes (e.g., the evolution of the Monroe Doctrine or, perhaps, the Open Door Policy), (4) at least one issue of major historiographical and political controversy (whether the United States started the Cold War or whether the United States is an “empire” like others, for example), and (5) a “background” topic directly related to the student’s probable PhD dissertation subject, as an early start toward actual dissertation research. In connection with each of the above proposed topics/themes, the student should list a number of books and articles that are especially pertinent - not just those that may have been assigned in Fletcher courses. These books and articles should include the best of standard works and also the very newest writings, so that the student is sure to be aware of the relevant scholarly “frontiers” - as these are at present defined, and perhaps as they should be moved or expanded. Be imaginative. It is important to read and reflect “argumentatively,” not merely passively, or merely to memorize. Read current book reviews in appropriate professional journals (such as Diplomatic History or Reviews in American History) as a guide to deciding what books to examine closely. Read books only selectively, as time is limited; read the introductions, conclusions, and key chapters. Use only one textbook as well as the Morrises’ indispensable Encyclopedia of American History for straightforward factual reference. Especially regarding the five to seven topics the student selects, carefully read the pertinent sections of Richard Dean Burns, ed., Guide to American Foreign Relations since 1700, available in the Ginn Library. It is important to gain a firm knowledge not just of the historical facts but also a sure sense of the changing historiographical landscape—to know what and where the “mountains” are in the wider range of the literature of the field. It is not necessary to know all the details that lie in every “valley” - except, of course, those lying in the immediate vicinity of the topics/themes the student himself or herself proposes as the basis for the examination in the United States field. Public International Law Required Coursework: The International Legal Order (ILO L200) and Public International Law (ILO L201) courses are required of all doctoral students with PIL as a field. In addition, at least one more ILO course must be completed to satisfy the PIL field requirements before the comprehensive examination may be taken.
Reading Lists: The PIL reading list consists of all materials assigned in L200 and L201. The reading list forms the basis for the written exam questions and serves as preparation for the oral examination. Students, in consultation with the field coordinator, will identify a comprehensive set of examination topic areas and draft topic-related questions at least three to four months prior to the written comprehensive exam. Written Comprehensive Exam: A single PIL exam will be administered during each comprehensive exam period (four per year). Students will have a three-hour period in which they must answer two essay questions out of three contained in the exam, of which one will be mandatory. Fifteen minutes will be allowed at the end of the three-hour exam period to print out and return the examination to the Registrar’s Office. Exams are closed-book and will be taken on computer. Please note that Fletcher honor codes apply. Each student is responsible for scheduling the date of the exam, reserving a room in which to take the exam, and printing the exam prior to the end of the allotted period. All exams are administered through the Registrar’s Office. Students may request to see exams from previous years. A file is maintained in the Registrar’s Office. Written exams will be graded as “Pass,” “Fail” or “Withhold” by the field director. Students may retake the exam only once should they fail. It will be graded on the following criteria: ! ! ! ! knowledge of authors and literature on the approved reading list; understanding of fundamental concepts in the PIL field; ability to employ appropriate analytical tools in answering exam questions; and ability to assess strengths and weaknesses in the literature.
Oral Comprehensive Exam: Students may not advance to the oral exam if they do not receive a “Pass” or “Withhold” on the written portion of the comprehensive exam. The Registrar and/or the field coordinator will notify students of their grade. Students should then contact the PIL field coordinator for any comments before taking the oral comprehensive exam. The oral comprehensive exam is scheduled by the Registrar’s Office. It lasts one hour with 20 minutes per field. Students may select the order in which the three field coordinators will pose questions; however, they should expect that each coordinator may interject with questions and comments as appropriate throughout the oral exam. For the PIL field, questions for the oral exam stem from one or all of the following categories. Students may be asked to: ! ! ! ! clarify an answer provided on the written exam; answer any of the questions listed on the written exam; comment on and/or cite any of the literature and/or authors in the approved reading list; and/or apply items in the approved reading list to cases or current events.
Should a student fail the oral, upon conferring with the other examiners, the field coordinator will determine whether a retake of the oral alone or both the written and oral is required. The written exam result will only come into question if the student had originally received a grade of "withhold" on the written exam. A student is permitted to retake the oral exam only once. After a second failure, the PhD candidacy will be terminated. Humanitarian Studies Students should contact the field coordinator sometime during their last semester of course work (typically 4-6 months prior to taking the comprehensive exam). Students prepare a reading list that is organized by topic area. The list must include a general section on humanitarian issues and two specific topic sections, chosen and agreed upon with the Field of Study Coordinator, which are relevant to the PhD candidate’s research topic. This list is presented to the field coordinator who critiques it with the students, asks questions and makes recommendations. This process often requires several iterations, and there is an opportunity for the student to ask questions about relative emphasis of topic areas. The list should include articles, books, treaties, reports and other sources that may or may not have been assigned for specific courses. The study period is seen as not only a review of material, but an opportunity to read books, authors or key articles that have not been read by the student. Relative emphasis of topic areas may vary among the student
reading lists depending upon major source of interest, but students are expected to cover all important aspects of the field. For students doing TWO PhD fields: The exam lasts four and a half hours and consists of a set of six questions of which the student answers four. One question is required and the others may be selected from additional categories of questions. The questions address larger conceptual issues in the field, and students are asked to provide specific examples to demonstrate that they understand how general principles apply to specific casess. For students doing THREE PhD fields: The exam lasts three hours and consists of a set of six questions of which the student answers three. One question is required and the others may be selected from additional categories of questions. The questions address larger conceptual issues in the field, and students are asked to provide specific examples to demonstrate that they understand how general principles apply to specific cases. The oral exam common to both the above options, will primarily cover questions that were on the exam, and is normally used for clarification of answers on the written exam. However, additional questions may be asked, and the student may be asked to make connections with other fields. Human Security Students should contact the field coordinator sometime during their last semester of course work (typically 4-6 months prior to taking the comprehensive exam). There exists a reading list, dealing with various elements of human security - debates about human security, about conflict and conflict resolution, about development, human rights, democratization, etc. This reading list is strongly inspired by the courses in the Human Security field and certificate, but it goes beyond that. By necessity this is a broad and eclectic list, and the ways to keep it relevant and at the same time doable are: ! ! ! ! the field director updates it every year; for each topic, care is exercised that o the readings do not overlap with other fields o the readings contain both scholarly and operational dimensions; the student is invited to make propositions to make the reading list shorter as well as more relevant in function of his/her research interests; and among the six more technical optional topics at the end of the reading list, the student is invited to chose two in function of his/her PhD research interests.
After a few weeks of back and forth, then, a definitive reading list is established, which will constitute the basis for the exam. The exam consists of two or three questions, each of which can be answered in 90 minutes. Most of the time (but not always), students can chose between two questions for one topic. Hence, in total, there may be as many as six questions (three pairs of two), of which the students must chose one from each pair. The oral exam will primarily cover questions that were on the exam, and is normally used for clarification of answers on the written exam. However, additional questions may be asked, and the student may be asked to make connections with other fields.

a particular use of a work is “fair” if it involves only a relatively small portion of the work.the copyright owner will have told you so expressly. even if its author didn’t expressly say that you may do so. and is unlikely to interfere with the copyright owner’s ability to market the original work. although this practice technically constitutes a copyright violation in the absence of permission by the author. if you reproduce or distribute copies of copyrighted material having a total retail value of $1. Thus. would meet this $1. For example. if you are the moderator of a mailing list and someone sends you a message for that list. It also is not enough to simply cite your source (though it may be plagiarism if you don’t). for example. it would take only 10 hours of repair time to meet the criminal threshold (federal law provides that the time is billed at $100/hour). It’s usually easy to tell whether you have permission to make a particular use of a work . however. just how old a particular work must be to be in the public domain depends in part upon when the work was created.and not the underlying idea itself. or (b) it was created by the federal government. and it is not enough that you aren’t charging anyone for your particular use. works that were created more than 75 years ago but published less than 75 years ago. but.

For example. if you don’t know for sure. If none of these exceptions apply.) Some Examples: Exactly how copyright applies to the Internet is still not entirely clear. it is reasonable to assume that you may post the message to the list.

Other uses may also be fair. In addition. An implied license may exist if the copyright owner has acted in such a way that is it reasonable for you to assume that you may make a particular use. if you don’t cite your sources. Unfortunately. even if you don’t make a dollar from the distribution or posting. as long as you use your own words. and you could be liable under federal law for as much as $100. Since the time necessary to restore lost data or damaged material is also covered by this law. so there is no one cutoff date that you can use for all works to determine whether or not they are in the public domain. this includes an instance where a software program or a music CD selection is posted on a web site or attached to an email you send to someone else or to a list serve.000 threshold. Copyright law protects only the expression of the creator’s idea the specific words or notes or brushstrokes or computer code that the creator used . 1776. Public Domain Generally speaking. it’s best to assume that they are not. but it’s not always so easy to tell whether work is in the public domain or whether what you want to do constitutes fair use or is covered by an implied license. and works that have never been published might be in the public domain. however. works that were created and published more than 75 years ago are now in the public domain. either in writing or orally. in part upon whether and when it was formally published. or sent to 20 friends. In addition. Works that were created less than 75 years ago. in part upon whether and when its creator died.

Cases are rarely pursued in this. (Again. it may still be plagiarism even if you paraphrase. since those involved are usually mutual acquaintances or wrong about whether the author will feel victimized or damaged by your forwarding of his or her writing to others without permission. and in part on still other factors. The copyright owner can always “revoke” an implied license.

A person who has been libeled can sue for whatever damages are caused by the publication of the libel.

E-mail is an incomplete form of communication: Recently. but also a one-to-many broadcast medium (as in the case of list-serves). Who wants to be only 30% understood? Another way to look at the findings of nonverbal communications studies is to consider these nonverbal communications as redundancies that reinforce the core spoken message. rather this is grist for a new discussion thread in its own right. universal and it is not just a one-to-one tool for people to talk with one another.) I have read previous studies that put that percentage as high as 70% or more. many of us can type on computers faster than we can write with a pen (and to many of us. Many of us are part of a generation that regards instant messaging and electronic correspondence as perfectly viable alternatives to traditional communications.

And how many times does the average unsolicited recipient simply hit the “delete” key and move on to the next message? A venture capitalist who spoke in one of my HBS classes suggested that he gives each e-mail “ten seconds” and then he deletes it…and those are solicited e-mails!!! Notwithstanding the challenges facing the venture industry today. the message should be clear: e-mail is not actionable. e-mail is not actionable. Citigroup Analyst Jack Grubman. 4.

The broader lesson is simple: ample precedents in US and European law show that one’s employer (or university) “owns” the e-mails issued from its e-mail servers – so nothing we write by e-mail is technically private -. the evidence contained therein did a lot to support the complainant's argument.
