BRC Spring work
We need to come up with a short list of papers to read in detail and discuss. We'll rotate through our short list of papers, and each of you will get one to present to the group. This is modelling a so-called "journal club", a common occurrence in astronomy departments/groups/centers, where the papers are usually selected out of recent astro-ph mailings.
Papers to discuss

Luisa nominates - either this one (IC2118, from my original teacher team), or the one I am in the process of finishing writing on CG4 from my team last year. The reason for this is because the analysis we will do for our BRCs is very similar to the analysis we did for IC2118 or CG4.
Chelen's nominees - reading the IC2118 and/or the CG4 paper would be good ways to learn the analysis procedure we're going to use/modify/manipulate. I also think a couple of papers on BRCs would be helpful for background information. Here's the bibliography from our proposal (with my comments):
Allen L., et al. 2011, American Astronomical Society, BAAS, 43, 258.15. Poster from AAS ... good to review?

I second reading all of the bibliographic articles, plus the one on IC2118. My reasoning is that I think we should be familiar with all of the work for the references we cited, and I would like any preview of the work that we will do. The older articles I have been looking (Stromgren, 1948 & Sharpless 1959)at are interesting for their historical context, but probably not necessary for all of us to read.
