ARB450: Arabic Language Variation

This course (content course to be offered in Arabic) is aimed at both native Arabic-speaking students and advanced-level Arabic language learners. It focuses on aspects of Arabic linguistic variation in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. It is designed to enhance all the four language skills at the advanced level. Special focus is given to strengthening students' strategies of academic reading and writing. As a content course, it aims at deepening students' knowledge of Arabic linguistic variation. The course adopts three approaches to the study of linguistic variation: linguistic-comparative, sociolinguistic, and discourse-based. The linguistic-comparative approach employs a descriptive method that examines aspects of linguistic variation in the linguistic features (lexicon, grammar, phonology, and morphology) of Standard Arabic and in the dialects. Special focus is given to the differences between Standard Arabic and the dialects in the above features. The sociolinguistic approach examines how linguistic variation can be explained by certain sociolinguistic factors (speaker-oriented and hearer-oriented) such as gender, class, education, and context of use. The discourse-based approach examines the alternation in use between Standard Arabic and the vernacular dialects in literary, religious, political, and educational discourses/texts.

ARB490: Advanced Arabic Media

Arabic Media content encompasses a wide variety of themes and styles that may come across as hard to decipher for Arabic learners. However, media language can become largely predictable once students possess a "toolkit" that they can use to navigate each theme and accompanying style. This course will address a variety of themes ranging from current affairs to sports and natural disasters that will offer students the opportunity to tackle content that is typical of media texts and prepare them for reading authentic news by themselves. Students will learn how to discuss these topics as well as describe and narrate events both orally and in writing and in multi-modal form. The course embraces the diglossic nature of Arabic by explicitly integrating and welcoming use of materials that include Modern Standard Arabic as well as the various Arabic dialects. It is aligned with ACTFL's updated Arabic guidelines that perceive the Arabic language as a continuum in which both the local varieties and Modern Standard Arabic constitute a whole in terms of usage. Moreover, the course builds students' digital literacy by providing them opportunities for research as well as oral and written production in Arabic using technology. This is also intended to support student autonomy, learning inside and outside the classroom and their ability to continue using these skills beyond this course. In fact, it is expected that students will start using Arabic news sources as one of the venues where they will get their news especially if they are interested in getting multiple perspectives on the same story. Active participation is expected from all members of the class. Students get a chance to choose the news stories that interest them for their homework as long as they are related to the theme of the week. They read, watch, or listen to the stories then briefly present and discuss them with classmates in class. Where disagreement on issues occurs, respectful behavior that is inclusive of all is expected from all participants in the discussions. The themes that will be covered in the course include the following and may be modified to include others as needed: Elections, Diplomacy, Violence, War and Military Action, Economy, Law, Trade and Industry, and Natural Disasters. Each theme will take about 1.5 weeks on average (3 sessions) to complete followed by projects and presentations that integrate themes covered till then.

ENGL160D1: Critical Cultural Concepts

This course examines--through literature, film, art, and philosophy-different concepts critical to the shaping of primarily "Western" culture(s), with a glance at similar concepts in "non-Western" cultures. The course is also "critical" in the sense that it asks students, through virtually weekly take-home quizzes, to critique these concepts, taking the wheat and letting the chaff be still. Topics may include the ideology of war or human rights; the problem of evil; the figure of the Trickster; and others.

ENGL160D2: Nonhuman Subjects

This course will explore the widely different cultural meanings and symbolic functions attached since ancient times to questions of human identity, values, and boundaries that various representations of the 'Nonhuman' bring to bear on culture and civilization, and on the very definition of what it means to be human. Boundary-challenging (or boundary-confirming) imaginary entities like the monster, the alien, ghosts, and other imaginary (or are they?) beings appear often in our ongoing investigation into who and what we are and what meaning life holds for us (and vice versa). For example, "Monsters": seemingly non-human (though often partly human) prodigies that mix supposedly different levels of being in one grotesque figure that therefore seems "abnormal" -- but also strangely familiar (or, as Sigmund Freud would say, "uncanny"). The emphasis, though, will not be simply on the kinds of monsters that appear in the influential forms of expression we study. Instead, we will analyze monsters as indicators of cultural history. Specifically, we will probe how selected Western and non-Anglo uses of monsters make such figures symbolic carriers of "cultural values" (often called ideologies) at different times and places. These "values" include systems of religious belief, assumptions about the universe and the nature of human being, the differing views of competing cultural groups, distinctions of gender or race or class, notions of social order and disorder (including the locations of power), and ways in which cultural groups establish "others" or "the other" in order to seem clearly "themselves." Monsters, we will see, often become symbols in which cultural conflicts are played out at different points in history, conflicts that emerge from fundamental tensions in Western societies or between Anglo-European and other cultural groups in the Western world. This class assumes that it is vitally important for students today to understand the history of these conflicts and tensions so that we all know more about our cultural roots. It also assumes that it is vital for students to grasp how symbolic figures and works reflect historical and ideological change and to be able to articulate such relationships with strong textual evidence in well-organized analyses and arguments, orally and on paper.

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.

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.

Drawing on historical precedents in the media and computational arts, this course focuses on both linear and non-linear approaches of using image, sound and text to create critical and creative works that function in a the context of social media and our contemporary digital society. How and why do certain images, music or films affect us so profoundly? We will address this question through a study of the components of media literacy that include: Production, Language, Representation, and Audience. These concepts will be examined through a cross-section of writers including: Marshall McLuhan, John Berger and Susan Sontag.

ESOC477: Information Security

Security is about protecting assets, such as money and physical possessions. For instance, we use walls, locks, burglar alarms, and even armed guards to keep other people from stealing and/or destroying our stuff. These days, information is typically one of our most important assets. Thus, we have to worry about the possibility of other people stealing and/or destroying it. For instance, criminals threaten our data with scareware or ransomware in order to extort money from us. Also, they use phishing scams and spyware in order to steal our personal information (including passwords), which they can then use to access our computer systems and even steal our identities.

GWS310: Transgender Studies

Working with the assertion that "the personal is political" that emerged from Feminist of Color scholarship, this course will introduce students to transgender identity and politics through memoir, autobiography, and self-narrative. Students will learn how transgender people require a story that authenticates their identification in order to receive medical, legal, and social care. From questions about pronoun use to "When did you know" or "How do you know," transgender identity has a unique relationship with self-narrative and the biographical. How has this biographical imperative of transgender subjectivity shaped theoretical, political, and aesthetic debates in Transgender Studies? Attentive to questions of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and ability, this course will study how "the story of self" reveals the bond between embodiment and subjectivity, the experiential and the social, inside and outside, and semiotics and materiality.

GWS530: Queer Cinema

Cinema has a privileged relationship with sexuality -- fantasy and desire shape how we watch film. Starting with Edison's Dickinson Experimental Sound Film (1895), a film of two men waltzing, the course examines how film has been shaped by queer fantasies, identities, and sexualities. For instance, by rigorously re-working cinematic conventions -- non-narrative, abstraction, discontinuity, and foregrounding of the film apparatus -- experimental film resonates and echoes queer theory's commitments to dis-identification, non-normativity, deconstruction, and other anti-social principles. In this course, we will reflect on the following questions, and more: What constitutes queer film, queer characters, and queer dis/pleasures? How might we define, or conceptualize, a queer aesthetics? How is spectatorship shaped by sexuality, and how does queerness alter this relationship? Is there a cost to LGBTQ visibility through cinema, and if so, what is it? How is queerness made un/legible through gender, race, sexuality, and nation, and ability? Is film inherently queer? Graduate-level requirements include additional readings and teaching or co-teaching one class meeting. Teaching will include preparing a lecture or class discussion concerning pre-screened films and assigned readings.

GWS639: Feminist+Relat Soc Mvmnt

In the United States in the nineteenth century, feminism emerged out of the abolition movement in Protestant churches, and subsequently was joined to a decidedly secular labor movement. Why do we think of feminism primarily as a non-religious social movement? How accurate is our perception that it was principally an autonomous movement, distinct from racial and economic justice movements? Why do we talk about "waves" of feminism, and what are the strengths and weaknesses of that model? How does that chronology change if we attend to feminist movements outside the United States? What role does feminism continue to play around the world today? This course will explore feminist and related social movements from the nineteenth century to the present, highlighting the interrelationship of feminist movements inside and outside the United 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.

HIST311: History of Epidemics

In the 14th century, an infectious disease that came to be known as the Black Death emerged in Asia and spread along trade routes to Europe, killing an estimated 60% of the population in about a year. Using the Black Death as a starting point, this course will examine the history of epidemics across the globe from 1350 to the present day using five case studies: Black Death (14th century); Smallpox (1775-82); Cholera (mid 19th century); Spanish Influenza (1918); and HIV/AIDS (1980s to the present). We will spend a significant amount of the course analyzing primary sources from those who witnessed epidemics, treated the sick, and lived and died during various epidemic outbreaks and attempted to understand them from a range of personal, literary, film, medical, media, museum, and public health perspectives. Over the course of the semester, we will analyze how epidemic and infectious diseases created historical watersheds that have shaped our world history socially, politically, environmentally, and economically to the present day. We will also examine human responses to epidemics in artistic, cultural, and intellectual realms, and the ways in which politicians, medical doctors, national and international bureaucracies, religious personnel, scholars, and everyday women and men debated their philosophical and moral implications. The final weeks of the course analyze contemporary "pandemic preparedness" policy and responses to health threats including vaccine controversies, ebola, and H1N1.

We will also address impacts on the family and gender, as well as Britain's changing relations with the continent of Europe, its empire, and the wider world.

HIST328: Cuisine, Culture, and Power

Physically, culturally, and socially, humans live through food and drink. Spanning the globe, as nearly limitless omnivores, humans have developed myriad ways of collecting and cultivating food and taking advantage of local environments. We also put food to work socially by creating cuisine. Through cuisine, humans have forged and nourished relationships, communed with deities, and through luxury choices, demonstrated "taste" and laid claim to status. Through the cultural practices of production and consumption of food and drink, individuals and groups have wielded power locally and globally. Food and drink consumption patterns have sustained slavery, poverty, malnutrition, and migration, and have laid waste to the environment. In this global history of food and cuisine, we will explore the physical, cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions of consumption and production and become more aware of how private, intimate acts connect us to the rest of humanity.

Usually taken in the last year in college, this research seminar teaches students to organize, research, and write a substantial paper (at least 20 pages) or, occasionally, its equivalent in a different form. This project will constitute original research: it will base its argument substantially on a critical evaluation of primary sources (in the original languages when possible, or in translation). It will also actively and critically engage secondary scholarship. Although the research paper is the final product, students will work toward this through a series of structured, graded stages--for example, a research proposal, historiographic essay, rough draft(s), class presentation, and final draft--each of which may involve giving and receiving peer commentary.

LAS150B2: Understanding Mexico Today

Mexico today is a diverse and dynamic country that is often misrepresented in popular stereotypes as a country full of sleepy, rural villages or dangerous, drug-ridden deserts. What are the major challenges facing Mexico today? Why do so many people migrate away from Mexico-and why do even more Mexicans return home? What historical and contemporary forces have shaped contemporary Mexico? We will learn about major topics including immigration, racial and ethnic diversity, democracy and political change, inequality, environmental change, violence, injustice and impunity, and Mexico in the global context (especially Mexico-United States relations). In the process, you will gain a far better understanding than most North Americans have of the peoples, environments, cultures and regions of Mexico, and of the complex political, economic and social structures that influence the region and its international relations, especially with the United States. This course focuses on current challenges of development, environment, and politics in Mexico. It will examine how Mexico has dealt with such issues as economic development and human rights. We will also explore environmental and indigenous politics, resource struggles, urban challenges, and the impact of the war on drugs. The last part of the class examines Mexican migration experiences, U.S. immigration policy, and the social and environmental context of the U.S.-Mexico border. Students are encouraged to follow the news about Mexico to keep up with rapidly-changing events and ideas. Some of the topics we cover are controversial (e.g., revolutions, immigration, drugs and U.S. intervention) and you may not always agree with the opinions expressed by the readings, professors, teaching assistants, or your fellow students. We encourage you to express your ideas and to question the ideas presented to you, in a constructive manner that shows respect for the views of others.

This course looks at both sides of the U.S.-Latin American relationship.

Course topics include U.S. foreign policy and policy impact on the Latin American region, Latin America's influence on hemispheric relations, and Latin America's diverse policy approaches to the United States and the world. The course is organized to first provide students with a historical overview as a foundation for understanding contemporary U.S.-Latin American relations. The focus of the course then shifts to exploring the most critical contemporary policy issues. The course is divided into two parts. Part I outlines the history of U.S.-Latin American relations from Latin America's independence in the early 19th century, through the War on Terror that began in 2001. Part II focuses on five critical policy concerns that shape U.S.-Latin American relations in the 21st century: democracy, economic development, security, the environment, and migration. Students will engage in intense study of one of these policy issues to write an independent research paper, and work in groups to design and present a policy brief at the end of the term.

LAS405: Sabores de Mexico

Mexico has one of the world's most accomplished food heritages. Many people in the U.S. are unaware that in ancient times the country's native peoples domesticated many important food crops that are of great importance today: corn, tomato, avocado, squash, pinto beans, and cacao (chocolate), to name a few. As in other countries, Mexican food is not an incidental component of life, but an essential part of how Mexico is structured; what people eat represents a confluence of power, culture, technology, and taste. In this course, we take a critical look at Mexican food production, processing, and consumption through a political ecology approach that includes an examination of important historical developments that provide context to more contemporary processes. These include Mexico's Green Revolution; the impact of globalization and new conceptualizations of food; the North American Free Trade Agreement; and migration in and out of Mexico. This course includes a 10-day optional field trip to Oaxaca, Mexico during the spring break for 1 extra credit. In combination with field activities, the course will also include a section on qualitative methods for the study of food.

LAS505: Sabores de Mexico

Mexico has one of the world's most accomplished food heritages. Many people in the U.S. are unaware that in ancient times the country's native peoples domesticated many important food crops that are of great importance today: corn, tomato, avocado, squash, pinto beans, and cacao (chocolate), to name a few. As in other countries, Mexican food is not an incidental component of life, but an essential part of how Mexico is structured; what people eat represents a confluence of power, culture, technology, and taste. In this course, we take a critical look at Mexican food production, processing, and consumption through a political ecology approach that includes an examination of important historical developments that provide context to more contemporary processes. These include Mexico's Green Revolution; the impact of globalization and new conceptualizations of food; the North American Free Trade Agreement; and migration in and out of Mexico. This course includes a 10-day optional field trip to Oaxaca, Mexico during the spring break for 1 extra credit.

LAW580: Intro to Information Privacy

Welcome to Information Privacy! This course will explore a range of contexts in which the courts and other branches of government have attempted to give definition to a legal right to privacy. The right to privacy is puzzling. It must coexist with other countervailing policies like free speech, law enforcement, national security, and public access to government records. Though the right to privacy has never had fixed definition, privacy law is in a particularly important period of development right now. Courts and policymakers are grappling with the rules that ought to govern the collection and use of personal information in the age of the Internet. Since nearly every private industry and public agency has a stake in the matter, the stakes are high, and the need for privacy experts is great.

The Arizona Journal for Environmental Law and Policy (AJELP) is a student-run journal supervised by the faculty at the College of Law. Students will perform tasks such as article selection, editing, and publication administration. For example, AJELP¿s Senior Managing Editor must coordinate the Journal¿s citation checking and general production, much like the Senior Managing Editors of the University¿s other student-run publications. Because AJELP publishes exclusively online, the Managing Board includes Online Editors who must maintain, design, and moderate its website. The Online Editors must also select, edit, and publishing online pieces such as article commentary and weblog posts. Online Editors perform work commensurate with that of Articles Editors from the College of Law¿s other student-run publications. The Managing Board also includes an Executive Editor, who will assist in editing the publication and provide the crucial administrative support necessary for a start-up student publication. The Executive Editor will also work with ALR and AJICL in creating and facilitating the write-on competition for first year students. AJELP¿s editorial staff will verify citations, format per Bluebook rules, edit submissions, and select articles for publication throughout the year. Published articles with a legal focus will not be subject to peer review, so citation verification and Bluebook formatting will be as critical and as time intensive as on the University¿s other student-run publications. In addition to assisting the other publications in grading the annual write-on competition, AJELP also requires each Editorial Staff member to submit a five hundred to one thousand word legal analysis on a contemporary environmental issue.

LAW625B: Colorado River in American Hst

The focus of the course is the Colorado River. Using the work of the New West historians as a framework, we shall examine the role of the Colorado River in American History. After examining the geology of the Grand Canyon and the use made of the River and its resources by Native peoples, we shall examine the exploration of the Colorado River and its canyons by John Wesley Powell and other early European explorers. The main theme of the course will be the important role that the water of the Colorado River has played in the Southwest. The battle among competing interests to harness the waters of the River, and the fight over the legal rights to use the water, has consumed essentially the entire twentieth century. By critically examining these fights, aided by readings from other disciplines, including environmental history, literature, economics, and ecology, the history of the Colorado River will suggest lessons about current public policy issues as well as insights into American attitudes about nature and natural resources, particularly water.

LAW626: Jurisprudence

On any given issue, a lawyer's typical question is: What is the relevant law? This is generally a 'local' question in the sense that the answer to it tends to differ depending on the jurisdiction in which the question is raised and the relevant law applies. In contrast, jurisprudence (or philosophy of law) is interested in what the law is in more general, or absolute, terms. That is, jurisprudence investigates the law as a unique social-political phenomenon, one with more or less universal characteristics that can be discerned through philosophical analysis. Jurisprudence assumes that the law possesses certain features by its very nature or essence as law, whenever and wherever a society is governed by law. There are several reasons for a philosophical interest in law. First, there is the intellectual interest in understanding law as a complex social phenomenon, which addresses some of the most intricate aspects of human culture. Second, law is also a normative social practice that guides human behavior, giving rise to reasons for action. However, law is not the only normative domain in our culture; morality, religion, social conventions and the like also guide human conduct in many ways. Therefore, the understanding of the nature of law also requires understanding how law differs from these similar normative domains, how it interacts with them, and whether its intelligibility depends on other normative orders, like morality or social conventions.

LAW626B: Jurisprudential Reading Group

This reading group will focus on the jurisprudential foundations of the economic analysis to law. Law and economics is probably the most common used approach to private law. In the reading sessions, we will discuss how law and economics became so influential, what are its philosophical underpinnings and what is the future for law and economics. In particular, we will guide students to understand that law and economics cannot be a general normative theory of the law as originally postulated, but can be used only for positive and local analysis.

LAW655E: Technology Law & Policy Lab

We live in the age of big data. Our phones, our wallets, our watches, and our cars spew out digital breadcrumbs about our lives.

For many of us, this data exchange has become a regular feature of life in the 21st century - a feature with significant benefits and significant costs. How should judges and legislators respond to this explosion of data? This course will examine some of the legal implications of the rise of big data, including implications for: consumer privacy; medical ethics; criminal law; international law; and intelligence gathering (in the U.S. and abroad).

This course examines pretrial and trial procedures. The course begins at the point where a suspect has been arrested. The police and investigators have finished their work, and it is time for lawyers to take control of each case and of the criminal process. The first (and some would say defining) question for this course is which lawyer a defendant will receive, with what kind of expertise, caseload, and resources, and when that lawyer will first appear. This class ends at the point where issues of sentencing, punishment, appeals and post-conviction review arise.

LAW663A: Bankruptcy LawMeet Team

The primary goal of the American College of Bankruptcy LawMeet is to provide each participant a meaningful and engaging simulation in negotiating the terms of a workout and reorganization of a financially troubled company. The ACB LawMeet involves three distinct phases: Students work in teams of two or three members and analyze case statements and other written materials. They then prepare and submit term sheets on behalf of one of the parties to each of the two transactions. There are two rounds of negotiation on site. The first round of negotiation, in which one set of the competing term sheets will be used as the starting point, involves the negotiation of a plan between the debtor and its primary creditor. The second round of negotiation involves the negotiation of the sale of the debtor's assets between the unsecured creditors' committee and the lessor of the debtor's business premises.

LAW666A: International Investment Law

This seminar will explore the legal face of globalization by looking at how international law is implicated in the protection of foreign direct investment (FDI), the related international case law with special emphasis in the investment chapter of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the evolution of different debates and criticism of the system for the promotion and protection of FDI. This seminar will consist of three parts: First, we will set up the intellectual and historical framework of the economic, political and legal ideas underpinning the architecture of the protection of FDI. Second, we will discuss how international law is implicated in the protection of FDI, the main disciplines typically included in international investment treaties, and the case law and its evolution. Finally, we will look at particular substantive issues that arise from investment arbitration, the preferred and specialized method of international investment dispute settlement. Throughout this seminar, we will reflect as well as illuminate the theoretical and practical questions involved in the process of expansion of international investment law.

LAW667A: Sentencing Law

This class examines the principles and practices of sentencing. Any brief study of sentencing can only hint at the rich and complex field that has emerged indeed, that has been created, in the past twenty years. While sentencing as an aspect of the legal process has been around for several thousand years, sentencing as a distinct field of study and practice is quite a recent event. Sentencing reform movements revealed a gap in law, a lawlessness in many of the justice systems in the U.S. for most of the 20th century. But what has filled that gap in many systems (sentencing guidelines) is one of the most controversial law reform projects of our era.

LAW672A: Innovating Legal Services

The majority of Americans can't afford to hire counsel when confronted with a civil legal need. As a result, they attempt to navigate the civil legal system without representation, or simply do not engage with the system at all. What are the societal implications of that system failure, and what can we do to change the status quo? In this course, students will engage with various stakeholders in the community to understand: (1) what the civil legal system was designed to do; (2) the role that legal professionals have traditionally played in the civil legal system; (3) how we might reform and improve traditional service models using original, creative and disruptive problem-solving skills. Each semester, the course will focus on a particular avenue of legal service and explore what's working and what's not, with the goal of generating creative solutions. Guest participants from the community will be invited to work with students in problem identification and solution building. This is an interdisciplinary, project-based course that exposes students to design thinking, systems thinking and community-based research.

LAW689B: Administrative Law Research

This course will focus on administrative law research skills. These skills are important because so many areas of law in our modern economy are heavily regulated by agencies (tax, securities, environmental, health and welfare, to name only a few). There is no focus on one specific area of law; the idea is that once students understand administrative law research in general they can use their knowledge to quickly master research in their own areas of interest. By the end of the course, students will understand administrative law research and demonstrate mastery of strategies for finding the primary and secondary information necessary to answer legal questions and develop legal arguments. Toward that end, students will thoroughly examine agencies and their powers, state and federal regulatory processes, organization of administrative law materials, and a variety of online sources of administrative law. Students will learn to efficiently utilize a variety of free and commercial sources and employ a variety of search strategies to find regulations, enabling and authorizing statutes, administrative decisions, guidance documents, executive orders, cases, and secondary source information. In addition, students will learn different techniques for tracking regulatory developments and participating in the regulatory process.

LING123: Intro to Math & Language

If you say "Ernie is a male dog" that means that Ernie is male, but if you say "Diane is a racecar driver" that doesn't mean Diane is a racecar. Why? If I say "I was looking for a unicorn", you'll say I was wasting my time, but if I say "I was kissing a unicorn", you'll think I'm truly crazy. Why? "Beavers build dams" is true, but "Dams are built by beavers" isn't. Why? This introductory course will work through concepts like set theory, basic logic, and formal language theory from the ground up to help explore and understand differences like these, which occur in our language (and any other) every day. The notions we will use are very rich and powerful, but are really intuitive and easy to work with. The course is an excellent opportunity to explore powerful tools that have mathematical power and precision (but with virtually no numbers!) to model accessible and intriguing data in the language domain.

LING150A1: Language in the World

All human communities have language - and our language is central to our lives. We use language not only to communicate with each other, we use to in our dreams, in our art, and some have even argued that language is the stuff of thought itself. This course introduces concepts and methods in linguistics - the scientific study of language - along with important concepts and tools from psychology, anthropology, biology, computation, and philosophy. Students learn to understand their own everyday language behavior and that of others as regular, creative, productive and rule-governed. Students develop understanding and appreciation of the complexity, intricacy and beauty of human language by learning about real languages - including spoken and signed languages, thriving and endangered languages, local and remote languages -and consider whether non-human animal communication systems might, or might not, be thought of as 'languages'. Students learn about language in the brain, and the complex interplay of 'nature' and 'nurture' in language acquisition and development, understand the normal and healthy roles that multilingualism play in human development and in society, recognize the rich and diverse linguistic heritage of Arizona, the US and the world, analyze their own innovative language use and linguistic repertoires, and practice applying the tools of the linguist to the languages they see and hear every day, as well as those they've never before experienced.

MAS150B2: Social Justice

Course focuses on issues of social difference, self-identity, and social status as these are reflected in scholarship about social justice, and applied to social justice issues in the local, national, and international stages. The course has two distinct foci: understanding different leadership styles and preparing to conduct original research to address social and economic inequalities. The focus on leadership will be based on understanding different and contrasting styles of leadership. Students will examine different theories including concepts linked to authoritarian, totalitarian, democratic and social justice styles of leadership. Students will critically analyze examples of leaders with varying styles within the local community, across the nation, and around the world. Social justice leadership will be introduced to determine the degree to which contemporary leaders respond to the needs and interests of the community, whether that community exists at the local, national, and global level. The theoretical framework for social justice leadership derives from Antonio Gramsci's concept of "organic intellectualism," (See The Prison Notebook) which argues that ANY and ALL individuals (regardless of social and economic status) can develop their intellectual/critical capacities to produce change within their own communities. The literature on organic intellectualism will be reviewed and incorporated into students' analysis. Students will develop a plan for undertaking original research that addresses social or economic inequalities in either the local, national, or global context. In doing so, students will develop informed opinions about social and economic inequalities that exist locally and across the world. Students will learn different and competing theoretical and ideological interpretations of inequality as they are depicted in scholarship, popular discourse, and in the media. Social justice research will be introduced as intellectual and analytical means to improve the quality of life of those who are less fortunate. The methodological approach to social justice research is "participatory action research," (See Borda and Rahman's Action and Knowledge: breaking the monopoly with participatory action research) in which individuals work collectively to study and address social and economic problems within their communities. Students will complete proposals for participatory action research projects and present them at a community forum. Although the research proposal will be local, students will learn how these skills and practices can be applied to social justice issues around the world.

Graduate-level requirements include facilitating class discussion and organizing class lectures based on selected topics in Latino Health Disparities. Graduate students will submit two questions for discussion to the instructor that draw on materials outside of the course and also lead the class discussion for that topic.
