This list, still in flux while class topics are mapped to a schedule, includes the required and optional reading for the class, sorted alphabetically (not by assignment date). The [doi] link is to the publisher: the copyright holder, and source of additional information and context about the document. The [google] link is to help learn about what has cited the publication via Google Scholar (note that this information is less precise for publications with more generic titles, and doesn't really work for book chapters).
