Museums of the 21st century are increasingly complex organizations, engaged with the critical issues of the day, whether by design or necessity. Few museums today can afford the luxury of being the "temples of treasures" of past centuries, with collections tended and displayed for the elite who have the leisure of appreciating them. Museums in the 21st century have been thrust onto the global stage and are dealing with issues resulting from political and religious conflicts, questions of legal and ethical rights to ownership of collections, international treaties and laws, recognition of native peoples and their voice in the disposition of their cultural patrimony, as well as engagement with local communities through exhibitions and public programming on issues such as poverty, homelessness, health, the environment, and many other challenges in both rural and urban settings. Globalization and technology have brought the world closer together, with resulting demands for greater accessibility to museum collections and curatorial knowledge. Museums, whether public or private, local or international, are more than ever accountable to and dependent upon multiple, often competing, constituents, and on communities and public engagement, while resources for the support of those museums are, in many cases, shrinking.

ENGL468: Writing in the Practice of Law

Writing in the practice of law is rhetoric, not simply description or narration or classification or exposition or even "logical" argument. In the practice of law writers are interested in effective writing, not in good writing, except to the extent that what may be considered good writing is also effective (Good writing can be effective writing: bad writing is almost always ineffective.) In this course, we will look at some of the many different kinds of writing lawyers do in the practice of law and learn as we do what it means to read writing not as mere exposition or logical argument but as a kind of action. We will perform several short writing assignments designed to help us address the issues that arise in a number of different kinds of legal writing. Some of this writing will be done collaboratively, as it often is in a law office. The writing will be collected in a final portfolio that will be accompanied by an analysis and estimate of the effectiveness of the writing you have done.

ESOC315: Publishing:Papyrus to E-Books

In the early 21st Century, we see publishing in the throes of dramatic changes, from print to electronic most obviously but also in who authors books, the economics of publishing, and how books get to readers. These changes remind us that the dynamics of the movement of the written word to its audience are an integral part of the society in which books are written, produced, and circulate. This 3-credit course takes an historical perspective on publishing, which we will define as the processes by which books come into being in multiple copies and are distributed to reach their audiences. We will start with ancient societies all over the world, and we will investigate the circumstances across societies in which books distinguish themselves from administrative records and begin to serve the needs of the literate elite. We will examine the way the physical form of the book and the technologies for producing it arise from the circumstances of each society, and in turn, how that physical format conditions the character of books and their use. We will trace the rise of publishing practices and identify the factors necessary for the reproduction and distribution of books to form an actual trade in books in varying societies. As we work our way from the ancient world to the early modern world, we will compare publishing practices in different societies and explore commonalities and differences in the relationships that develop between the creation, reproduction and distribution of books. Of particular focus will be our comparison of the rise of publishing and book trades in Europe, Asia, and the Arab world before 1450. After the introduction of printing with metal moveable type in Europe, associated with Gutenberg in approximately 1450, we will have an opportunity to observe the changes that this new technology makes in publishing and the book trade, by comparing the mature manuscript book trade of the late middle ages to that of the hand-press book publishing of early modern Europe. In the run up to the mid-term we will see the effect of monetary capital on the book trades and the shaping of the function of the publisher (although not yet called that). We will also examine related publishing matters such as art and decorative print production as well as the emergence and social role of pamphlets.
Terms offered: Fall 2017

ESOC316: Digital Commerce

This course will look at how commerce in information content (websites, books, databases, music, movies, software, etc.) functions. We will discuss things like switching costs, net neutrality, the long tail, differential pricing, and complementary goods. We will address the following sorts of questions: - Why do so many information producers give away content (such as "apps" for mobile phones) for free? How do companies (such as Google and Facebook) stay in business when no one has to pay to use their services? - What are contemporary practices with regard to purchasing access to information content? For instance, why do we tend to buy books, but only rent movies? Also, how do new modes of content provision (such as Pandora and Spotify) change the way that creators get paid for their work? - Why are there restrictions on how information content can be used? For instance, why can you play the DVD that you bought on your trip to Europe on the DVD player that you bought at home in the United States? But why should anybody other than an economist care about the answers to these sorts of questions? The world now runs on the production, dissemination, and consumption of information. All of us constantly access all sorts of information, through all sorts of devices, from all sorts of providers. We read and interact with websites, we query databases, and we communicate with each other via social media. These sorts of activities permeate both our personal and professional lives. In order to successfully navigate this digital world, information consumers, information producers, and information policy makers need to understand what sorts of information goods are likely to be available and how much they are likely to cost. We cannot learn enough about digital commerce simply by studying the various information technologies that are now available to create and disseminate information content. What matters most is how people choose to spend their time using these technologies, and what sorts of content can provide earning potential for its creators. What also matters are the unique properties of information content that make it very different from other sorts of goods. For instance, while only one person at a time can drive a particular car or eat a particular hamburger, millions of people can simultaneously read the same book, listen to the same song, and use the same software. These are issues that are part and parcel to living, working, purchasing, and being entertained in an eSociety; these are the issues addressed in this course.

In this course, students as future technologists, will be exposed to the 'dark side' of this current 'information society' (e.g., deception, cybercrime) as well topics such as big data privacy, digital disruptions, consumer data and related sales, gaming protections, youth safety online, big science data sharing issues and related trust, digital security, as well as how certain groups -- law firms, advocacy groups, marketing professionals, and political or lobbying groups -- are mining data for particular use. Students will be required to consider recent court cases and contentions around the use, management, and protection of data in society as well as the risk humans face in this digital information and mediated age.

ESOC330: Digital Dilemmas

This course focuses on the ethical issues that arise in the context of new and emerging information technologies-- e.g., threats to privacy of ubiquitous technological surveillance, limitations on access created by digital rights management. The course will use the framework of ethical theory to analyze these issues and to propose policy solutions. The goal of the course is to give students the necessary theoretical foundation to be involved in the evaluation and construction of information policies at the local, national, and international level. The course will focus on three core areas where digital dilemmas arise--information access, information privacy, and intellectual property. In order to achieve depth as well as breadth, the course will put one of these issues at the center and discuss the others in relation to it. So, for instance, the course may focus on Intellectual Property looking at the threats and benefits of IP to privacy and access. This syllabus provides an overview of the range of topics that may be discussed.

ESOC400: Info MM Design & Moving Image

We are living in a time when nearly everyone has the means to make movies, music and photos using just their own personal tools like smartphones, iPads, and similar mobile gadgets. This course will develop and refine skills and understanding of multimedia in contemporary culture. Offering a survey of innovative works in film and information arts, this course will allow students a hands-on opportunity to respond to concepts covered in class using self-produced media. This course will address how information functions in time-based forms of multimedia and video in this era of interactive information and displays.

GWS570: Feminization of Migrate

Worldwide human migration and displacements are at an all time high because of political, economic, and environmental upheavals. In the Americas, in particular, there has been a steady increase in migration to the U.S. from Mexico and Latin America since the 1960s. The most significant change has been the greater participation of women due in part to the negative impact of structural adjustment programs (SAPs) resulting in the impoverishment of agricultural sectors and lack of employment opportunities, a combination known to produce the feminization of migration. In this class, we will explore this phenomenon and the various challenges borne by women and youths. We will consider relevant theories, such as structural violence, as well as a wide range of perspectives, combining demography, history, ethnography and public policy analysis to better understand issues of borders, transnational identities, human rights, labor rights, and responsibilities of host and sending states.

HIST160A2: Asia and the World

This course explores social, cultural, and political currents in Asia from the fifteenth century to the present. Asia is far too large and diverse to be studied thoroughly in one single semester, and thus this course will serve as an introduction to a number of important themes and topics in the study of East, South, and Southeast Asia. In particular, we will focus on the dynamic movement of people and ideas to investigate multiple sites of interaction within Asia and between Asia and other parts of the world. We will begin with an exploration of the Mughal and Manchu empires in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and conclude with the popularity of Indian Bollywood and Japanese Anime in the twenty-first-century United States. Because this is a course that traces both the outlines of Asian history but also, and perhaps more importantly, the interaction of Asian cultures with global trends and patterns as well as the construction of 'Asia' in the rest of the world, the texts we will read are not restricted to archival sources from Asia. You will use first-hand accounts, film, literature, and material artifacts to trace the development and significance of various trans-cultural connections that have shaped histories and identities within Asia and around the world.

HIST320: Early Modern Britain

This course aims at a broad analysis of the enthralling history and legacies of the Tudor and Stuart dynasties that ruled England from 1458 to 1714.

The course begins by focusing on the Tudors with emphasis on Henry VIII and the English Reformation, the return to Catholicism under Mary Tudor, the creation of a new Anglican Church under Elizabeth I and its unforeseen consequences. From there, it explores the Stuarts, with attention to the catastrophic English Revolution culminating in the public execution of King Charles I in 1649, and the rise of the English republic that ended with the restoration of monarchy in 1660. The course then reflects on the transformation of the English state following the elite coup d'etat of 1688, the Glorious Revolution, a fundamental watershed that cleared the way for a constitutional monarchy, parliamentary sovereignty, and religious toleration in England.

HIST404C: Cleopatra: Power, Passion, Pro

This course focuses on Cleopatra VII (69-30 BCE), the last ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt and one of the best-known women in history and a key powerbroker during a period of important political change, one with enduring repercussions for the western world. She has been, however, deliberately memorialized as a "romantic" agent, a deployer of "feminine wiles", whose gender and political toolbox rightly doomed her efforts to failure. Students will interrogate the process of transforming a historical individual into an object lesson, a trope of femininity, and a cinematic legend, unpacking the messages crafted for a range of audiences and purposes by multiple creators, including Cleopatra herself. We begin with the historical background of the Hellenistic period, cosmopolitan and multicultural, focusing especially on the dynamism of women in the ideology of royal power and as image-makers in their own right, developing special forms for female authority and female patronage. A number of earlier Cleopatras establish context and particular precedents, creating official personae to engage effective interactions with fundamental groups; these include the resilient Ptolemaic queen Cleopatra II (r. 175-116 BCE) and Cleopatra Thea, token in a dynastic alliance who became Great Queen of Syria, dominating the Seleucid throne for a generation. Students will then sift through the evidence for Cleopatra VII, both the contentious (and largely hostile) material for her Mediterranean activities as well as the Egyptian record that may represent the specific efforts of the queen herself, utilizing then-ancient symbol and ritual to assert her legitimate imperial authority and structure her collaboration with major stakeholders in the Nile realm. The last section of the course looks to the lingering memory of Cleopatra long after her death, closely examining images in drama, art, and film to explore how the story of Cleopatra has been crafted and recrafted to represent different "truths" about sex, power, and identity.

INFO519: Knowledge in a Digital World

We do all sorts of things with information technology: we play games, we listen to music, we watch movies, and we communicate with other people. But one of the main things that we use information technology for is to learn things. Toward this end, we visit Wikipedia, Ask.com, The New York Times, and other such sites. Or we just Google stuff that we want to know about. This course is about how information technology is affecting the ability of individuals and institutions to acquire and share knowledge. We will look at the following sorts of questions: * What impact are Google, iPhones, and iPads having on how we know things? * Should we trust the information that we find on social networking sites like Wikipedia and Ask.com? * How do people try to deceive us on the web? * Do intellectual property laws, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, promote or impede our ability to acquire knowledge? * Can we really be informed citizens if the blogosphere completely replaces traditional journalism? * In a digital world, what things do we have a right to know and what things do we have an obligation to know?
