ANTH160D2: Origins of Hum Diversity

Our story begins around seven million years ago as the human lineage began to diverge from the great apes. Our story is one of curiosity, innovation, exploration, expansion, and diversity. Early humans, including our direct ancestors, accumulated a vast spectrum of complex cognitive, physical, behavioral, and cultural traits as they spread across the face of the Earth and adapted to environments in every corner of the planet. Understanding the bewildering phenotypic and cultural variability observed in humans today requires a Bio-Cultural perspective, integrating theories, methods and data from the natural and social sciences. While variability in appearance and practice sometimes divides us and highlights our differences, humans today share ~99.9% of our DNA, and we are united by common concerns such as the search for food, love, need for companionship, and the necessity to support the next generation of the human species. This course takes a chronological approach as we explore the hominin family tree through the study of fossil species, critical cultural developments including the origins of technology and changes in diet, economy and social relationships. Within this framework we will cover the basics of Darwinian evolution, highlighting the interaction of biological and cultural forces in shaping what we are today. Throughout this course, we will also examine how societal values, inequality, racism, and colonialism have impacted our understanding of what it means to be human. The signature assignment for this course will involve a deep look at how our evolutionary past, and how different conceptualizations of it resonate in the contemporary world.

ANTH306: Latin American Health

What does a pandemic like Covid-19 teach us about health today? As we continue to grapple with the tragedies and drastic changes to social life induced by the Corona virus, this course invites students to reconsider health and medicine in Latin America through the concept of the pandemic. This course, however, does not offer a comprehensive account of historical and contemporary pandemics in the Latin American region. Instead, it asks students to analyze the idea of the pandemic itself--an injurious force that spreads across land masses, oceans, and national borders--- to reassess our understanding of health today. The course will argue that in order to analyze health problems in Latin American localities, we must always hold in mind the figure of the pandemic or, in other words, to imagine how the global is always constitutive of local dynamics of health.

ANTH325: Bodies in Medicine

This course introduces students to fundamental questions in medical anthropology through an engagement with surgical procedures that remake the body and its world. A practice at once familiar and strange, we center surgical interventions to ground abstract concepts of social and political relations firmly in the materiality of the human body. We examine the concepts of belief and belonging through analyzing male circumcision; cultural relativism and its limits through female genital cutting; the constitution of race through cosmetic procedures that reshape the eyes and nose; nationalism and patriotism through the rehabilitation of soldiers' bodies; the constitution of sex and gender through trans- and intersex genital surgeries; the ethical pull of kinship through in-family kidney donation; economic globalization through surgical tourism; and the concept of the individual subject through post-amputation phantom limb pain and the medical imperative to separate conjoined twins. These procedures invite us to consider the body as a site at which particular ideas about what is "normal" and what is "good" quite literally find their form. They make manifest the economic, racial, political and ethical forces through which contemporary life and value unfold. Building on the foundations of Tier I anthropology courses, this course introduces students to the unique ways that anthropology engages the practices and beliefs at the heart of medicine. This is a Tier II GenEd course.
Terms offered: Fall 2022

ANTH326: Domestication

A common traditional definition of "domestication" is the process by which wild plants and wild animals are adapted and altered for human use. This course shows a more complicated, and more remarkable, story of the intimate long-term relations between humans and certain other organisms with whom we are co-dependent. To understand how domestication occurs, and the surprisingly short prehistoric time frame in which the most important domesticated species arose, we will explore the contexts in which the selective process was set in motion, including cultural effects, the built environment, and the inherent properties species that constrained the overall process. Domestication is a mutually affecting evolutionary relationship that develops over many generations, altering not only the animals and plants so important to humans, but also the human beings who have depended on them. This survey course integrates information from anthropology (including archaeology), biology, geography, and environmental science.

ANTH625: Whiteness and White Supremacy

This course investigates the construction of social difference through a focus on race and whiteness. How are we surrounded (and differentially impacted) by notions of whiteness? How do mundane practices such as brushing one's teeth or eating white bread generate (and become infused with) ideas of racial difference that come to justify structural racism, racial hierarchy, and white supremacy? This advanced graduate seminar draws on critical race and critical whiteness studies to investigate two main themes: whiteness/racial ideology and white supremacy/antiblackness. Drawing from the fields of cultural anthropology, medical anthropology, colonial studies, and history, this course investigates how social, political, economic, and historical factors contribute to the construction and naturalization of whiteness and white supremacy. A focus on whiteness will allow us to address broader questions of citizenship, globalization, consumption, modernity, power, and racial violence. Readings are drawn from across the globe (including the U.S., the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Africa). Students will benefit from some previous familiarity with the study of race, and they are encouraged to develop course papers from their own personal interests and research agendas (past, present, and future).

ANTH909: Games in Medieval Europe

Games and play are important aspects of all cultures. They provide entertainment and recreation, but they also reflect and influence many other aspects of life. We will investigate the importance of games and play in shaping medieval and early modern societies by exploring a wide variety of leisure activities, including board games (like chess), equestrian sports (like hunting), ball games (like skittles), and gambling (with dice, cards, and just about anything else imaginable!). We will also explore what role people at this time believed games and play had in maintaining health. Through our examination of games and play, we will explore the cultural, social, political, religious, economic, legal, military, environmental, and intellectual history of the medieval and early modern world. We will critically engage (and also play!) with a wide selection of medieval and early modern texts, images, and material objects from around the world; and you will use these sources (and ones you discover!) to do your own historical research on games and play.

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.

CHS403: CHS in the Wild

This course is an introduction to methods and practices of studying how we moderns organize health care. The aim is to ground you in the foundational ethnographic literature in these areas, focusing on the relationships between theory and data, and between researcher and researched. Because this course is a CURE (Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience), this aim will be met in the context of your ventures into field sites where you will be expected to make sense of the methods, often messy and accidental, that organize everyday practices intended to produce health. The course covers the essentials of research: data access and gathering (i.e. interviewing and observation), data analysis, reliability, and writing. When we do field work, we make a number of ethical decisions, so you will learn and apply principles of ethical review, such as informed consent and granting anonymity of interviewed participants (among other things, by attaining training on research with human subjects (CITI). These essentials will be covered as you conduct original field research, share and critique each other's field notes on a weekly basis, and produce a presentation and final report based on your ethnographies. Health and Society (CHS 303) is a recommended course but not a prerequisite.

CHS405: Disasters, Health & Society

Disasters can be triggered by all sorts of causes: from forces of nature, such as viruses, floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and earthquakes; to technological accidents, such as plane crashes, oil spills, and chemical releases; or terrorism and acts of violence. Disasters may be slow-moving in their onset or sudden and unexpected. But what all types of disasters have in common is the potential to cause widespread community disruption, displacement, economic loss, property damage, death and injury, and profound emotional suffering. What is also clear is that disaster risk is on the rise in the United States and around the world. At the same time, disasters reveal a great deal about the social world in which we live. Disasters peel back layers of complexity that normally obscure our vision of social relations. After a disaster occurs, we can see society for what it really is. Disasters therefore provide us with a unique opportunity to refine and reassess our ideas and assumptions about social life.

In this course, we examine the social context of various reproductive health issues, including pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood, reproductive rights, and traditional and alternative ways of creating families. We will also address the social and political implications of reproductive health practices like abortion, social freezing, surrogate motherhood, and determinants of poor reproductive health outcomes, including violence towards women, sexually transmitted diseases, and social, environmental, and behavioral hazards.

In this course we will investigate the hospital as a strategic entrance point for understanding the social organization of contemporary medicine. We will pay special attention to the ways in which the hospital's agents are authoritative in their choreography, that is, how its professionals and administrators get people to do things they wouldn't otherwise do, especially those things that are inconvenient or uncomfortable. In our exploration of the causes and consequences of authority in the hospital, we will examine such topics as: how institutions produce insanity, how doctors seek to generate compliance, and how medical students manage the uncertainty implicit in interpreting science and performing professionally.

CHS426: Health Care Fraud & Compliance

This class will look at the devastating effects that healthcare fraud has on the financial resources of the United States. We will review cases of healthcare fraud that involved more than just money - the ultimate price - human lives. As of 2015, the government has collected and returned over $29.4 billion to the Medicare Trust Fund. This does not take into account repayment to the Medicaid fund or other commercial payers. In 2017, the USA has budgeted 28% of the federal budget for healthcare. This amount is highest of all the other categories including defense (21%) and pensions (Social Security 25%.) We will review healthcare fraudulent schemes and methods to detect these schemes. Who are the perpetrators? Who are the victims? Methods of investigation will be explored to look at how to prevent fraud with current laws, task forces and compliance efforts. Whistleblowers will be discussed regarding their efforts to stop healthcare fraud and the risks they took to come forward. The class will also examine the many free resources available to the public on the topic of healthcare fraud. Students will have a chance to investigate possible career paths related to fighting healthcare fraud.

CHS480: Qual Analysis of Health Data

Qualitative, non-­-statistical social science research can form the basis of important discoveries about individuals, organizations and societies. Qualitative methods help to better understand `how' and `why' we do things in a certain way rather than `how often', `how many' or `how much'. The field of health, illness and care generates complex research questions about behaviors, perceptions and practices, which sometimes cannot be fully and appropriately addressed by quantitative methods alone. Therefore this course introduces students to the theoretical and practical principles and approaches of qualitative research methods and provides an overview of the most commonly used qualitative research techniques. During the semester students will reflect on formulating research questions in their field of interest and selecting appropriate research designs. Students will identify research topics, develop research questions, and learn how to generate, analyze and write up qualitative data. Furthermore, students will practice their skills in the critical appraisal of qualitative research studies. Students will have the possibility to acquire methodological skills of qualitative research by conducting their own research project.

ENGL160D2: Nonhuman Subjects

Monsters are cool¿but they¿re also interesting, and also sometimes deeply problematic. The category of the ¿non-human¿ (or, more broadly, ¿the Other¿) raises key questions about human identity, human values, and the cultural boundaries we construct to cordon off the horrific, the weird, the frightening, the monstrous, or the non-human. As a result, we won¿t focus simply particular monster-types like the zombie, the vampire, or the cyborg. Instead, we¿ll look at the monster-figure in literature and film as a key indicator of cultural history: the symbolic carrier of cultural values, problems, and ideological tensions. These cultural issues can include things like political dissension, systems of religious belief, social order and disorder, human nature, or distinctions of race/class/gender. As we¿ll see, monsters often become symbols in the cultural, political, and intellectual clashes that mark Western history. In order to better understand our cultural roots, then, we have to come to terms with the historical and ideological tensions behind those clashes. In this course, we¿ll demonstrate that through well-organized analytical arguments that present strong textual evidence and display critical thinking.

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.

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.

FOOD405: 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.

FOOD505: 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.

GEOG150B2: Crime and the City

In this course you will examine crime and the city as mutually constitutive manifestations of identity and power. Throughout the semester we will focus on cultural criminological concepts and the making and marking of contemporary urban space. By looking at the locations and context in which community members and law enforcement interact, you will get a better understanding of the role space + place play in criminality and criminalization. This course will also provide you with a geographical lens through which to study contemporary and contentious social interactions as well as provide you with critical thinking skills, insight, and terminology needed to evaluate complex social phenomena concerning clashes over race, place, class, gender, and ultimately the right to the city. The texts for this course also provide contemporary and up close ethnographic views of neighborhoods where human agents struggle over identity and community. This course relies on perspectives from the fields of cultural geography and critical criminology in addition to critical studies of race and contemporary US urban society.  Additional course concepts and topics include: cultural criminality, black and white spatial imaginaries, the under-policing/over-policing paradox, cities within the city, Chicano and Latino urbanism, gang injunctions and gentrification, transgression and contestation, community policing, civil gang injunctions, "all city" graffiti, broken windows theory, moral geographies, and the deeply superficial aspects of capital, style, and expression.   You will emerge from this course better able to identify, discuss, and defend your own informed position on the nuances and realities of contemporary crime, criminality, and criminalization. You will also come away with a better understanding of the composition of the city, its historical development and ideological structures, as well as a critical perspective of the formation of transgressive subcultures and processes of community and neighborhood change. You will also develop the language needed to critically read, interpret and understand scholarly texts, as well as become up to date on contemporary debates and thinking about criminality and the policing of urban space. This is a course designed for students of all interests, perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, majors, training, and years of study. The only preparation you need for this class is a willingness to stay engaged.

Biogeography is the study of the spatiotemporal distribution of living things. Biogeographers map and examine the distributions of organisms today and reconstruct those of the past. They also conduct research into how physical and biological factors and processes influence distributions of organisms and they study how geographic distributions affect the evolution and extinction of species. Earth is a dynamic, wondrous, and complex planet. The diversity we see in the living systems, i.e. the Earth's biosphere, is the result of many processes studied individually among many disciplines including hydrology, geology, ecology, and soil science. In this course, we will take a holistic and integrative look at the complex spatial variations in the elements of Earth's biosphere. This course is designed to explore how biogeographic processes influence the evolution of species, communities, and ecosystems and provides background and analytical techniques for studying the effects of global change on biota.

From human health to vanishing species, climate change is one of the major challenges facing people around the world. A vast majority of scientists agree that human-made climate change is a major factor threatening the planet's future, but they worry that measures to stop or modify climate change are not taken seriously enough. What role do media play in this respect, and what role can they play in the future to communicate climate science and alert people of the challenges? How can media connect people's everyday experiences to the global climate processes? Our exploration of different types of media will take us on a global odyssey into how media portray the problem, its causes and effects, what the future holds and what can be done.

GWS150B1: Gender & Contemporary Society

Over the past 20 years, we have seen a proliferation of new terms to help keep pace of the shifting meanings of and experimentations with gender: gender non-binary; gender fluid; transgender; racialized gender; and, cisgender, to name a few. Never has there been a more urgent (and exciting!) time to take a class that carefully navigates these terms and the important subject positions they represent. How have these shifts influenced the work of visual artists? What new tools do literary scholars need in order to analyze innovative creative writing that seeks to destabilize gender? How have sociologists expanded their presuppositions about the social transmission of gender roles? And how can we, as students of this class, build connections between the artists, literary scholars, and sociologists in order to create our own robust interdisciplinary frameworks that are capacious enough to apprehend new and dynamic gender formations? In addition to exploring these questions, we will consider the ways that gender influences, and is influenced by, social differences, social status, and political and economic systems. We will track the connections between the individual and institutions such as mass media, science, education, and the family. By the end of the semester students should have developed a facility with gender as a key term of interdisciplinary analysis and should have a good understanding of the dynamic interactions between gender, race, sexuality, nation, embodiment, and socio-economic class.

GWS242: Gender & Education

Recently, there has been an increasing focus on gender in educational research and practice. Scholars and practitioners are taking note not only of the differential outcomes for students in relation to gender, but are also discussing how systems of privilege and oppression (e.g., sexism, heteropatriarchy, transgender oppression) mediate educational environments. Furthermore, there has been a call by some to address gender in expansive, non-binary ways that include students with diverse genders beyond just thinking about ¿men¿ and/or ¿women.¿ In this class, students will survey the current literature regarding gender in education--both K-12 and postsecondary education--as well as discuss how policies and practices both inhibit and promote expansive understandings of gender as a social identity. Students will also develop educational interventions that reflect this literature.

GWS260: Sex, Gender, and Technology

This Tier Two course draws on a variety of texts and media to explore the ways in which sex, gender, and the body are not as "natural" as we generally assume, and are in fact "always already" shaped by technology. To bring these ideas into sharper focus, we will pay attention to the ways that boundaries between humans, animals, and machines are constructed, and how they are broken down. Topics may include assisted reproduction, biotechnology, biological bodily differences, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, intersex and transgender issues, queer theory, sexual diversity in nature, sex toys, robotics, artificial intelligence, biopolitics and other similar issues.

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.
Terms offered: Spring 2022

GWS312: Latina/O Popular Culture

This course examines how Latinas/os have been a major force in the production of popular culture. In particular we will critically examine discourses of "Latinidad" (a seamless construction of Latinos as a monolithic group) in the corporate production of identities. Latinidad also provides the contradictory grounds where consumer culture meets Latina/o performance. Some artists choose to reappropriate commercial spaces as sites of empowerment, while others are complicit in perpetuating stereotypical representations of Latinas/os. We will explore the construction of Latina/o identities as they influence and produce particular racial, sexual and gendered identities. Furthermore, the course focuses on the real-world implications for these performances as they commodify Latina/o culture. Over the course of the semester, students will be introduced to Latina/o/Chicana/o musical production, movies, television, advertising, magazines, literary texts, performance art, murals, installation art, music videos, and animation within a historical context.

GWS316: Sex and Salvation in Lat Amer

What do witches in colonial Guatemala, Mexican nuns, born-again gang members in Honduras, Catholics undergoing in-vitro fertilization in Ecuador, and lesbian Afro-Brazilian Candomblé practitioners have in common? Their experiences tell us something about the complex intersection of sex, gender, and religion in Latin America. This course takes an anthropological approach to consider two central questions: (1) What role do religious ideologies and institutions play in the social construction of sexuality and gender in Latin America? (2) How do Latin Americans enact and contest gender power relations through their religious practices, thus contributing to processes of social change in the region? To address these questions, this class focuses on gender and its relationship to sexual desires and transgressions across diverse religious traditions from the pre-Columbian period to the present.

GWS321: Women In Judaism

This course examines religion and gender through the study of women in Judaism. How do scholars construct a history of women in ancient Judaism when Jewish sacred texts are written by and for men? How have modern Jewish women accommodated feminist ideals without undermining the authority of the established tradition? What impact has the feminist movement had on Jewish communal institutions in the United States and Israel? In this course, we explore these questions and others by examining the influence Jewish religious beliefs and practices have played in the formation of Jewish women¿s identities, image and their understanding of power and authority. Students study the role of women in the formation of Judaism and Jewish society as a culturally constructed and historically changing category through archaeology, biblical studies, rabbinics, theology, folklore, social and political movements.

The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history. The self-expression and self-definition, expressed by African American women's voices have generated social and political changes in American history that have also impacted the dominant Euro-American culture of American society.

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.

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.

HIST160D1: Food & Power in Global History

Are we really what we eat? Why do certain foods appeal and others repel? How do foods move from their original homes into our own? How has our cuisine evolved? And how do food and consumption reflect status and power? Food & Power in Global History takes a world history approach to investigate these and other questions by considering the cultural, economic, and geopolitical discovery, evolution, and migration of food and drink from pre-modern times to the present. We explore the discovery, invention, and adaptation of new foods from early human history to our own post-Columbian era, when local foods have become truly global. Food and drink have transformed continents and trading networks, and made and broken empires. Food is a site of cultural exchange and interaction, and it is also an expression and marker of identities. Wars have been fought to control food access. Dining, retail, and industrialization have reshaped the way we look at food. We will trace the origins, migration, and reinvention of global foods to understand how it is that food choice, food waste, and famine are more abundant today than at any point in human history.

HIST207: Games in Medieval Europe

Games and play are important aspects of all cultures. They provide entertainment and recreation, but they also reflect and influence many other aspects of life.

HIST309: Hist of Censorship in Americas

In this course we start with an exploration of some of the formal prohibitions of "subversive" texts, images, and sounds. We then move on to identify multiple types of censorship aimed at controlling the circulation of information within different societies. We compare changing historical contexts in which political or religious leaders banned information or activities of individuals and groups and examine the usefulness of dichotomies that juxtapose censorship and freedom. How can the lens of censorship help us explore constructions of political power? What were some of the changing political interest or fears that triggered acts of censorship? What were different forms of violence that accompanied such acts? How can we identify the gendered aspect of censorship, and in what way was censorship shaped by such categories as race, ethnicity, class, geography, age, and experience? Under what circumstances were people prepared to resist censorship, either individually or collectively? Themes include censorship and self-censorship in people's religious practices, politics, and corporate censorship. We will examine evidence from the worlds of art, humor, public rituals, mass media, and education.

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.

HIST316: Warfare and Violence

From the time of our stone-age ancestors violence has been an integral feature of human societies. Variously expressed as the organized violence of state-directed warfare, the smaller-scale conflicts of tribes and clans, or the actions of lone individuals, violence is a depressingly-common feature of the human experience. This course analyzes the impact and function of violence from the late-Neolithic onwards, culminating with the more-complex state structures, legal systems, and military bureaucracies that have emerged in the modern age. Topics of particular focus will include how technology relates to and facilitates violence; the impact of warfare on civilian populations; the effect of violence on individuals; legal efforts to frame and define ¿legitimate¿ violence; and the mythologizing of violent acts (and actors) in historical memory. Students will gai a broad understanding of warfare and violence as expressed in a variety of Western and non-Western contexts including Europe, Africa, the Near East and the Americas. By taking this course students will develop a greater understanding of the concept of violence as a historical phenomenon, and be better prepared to analyze the place and function of modern/contemporary expressions of violence, both between and within human societies.

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 objective is to understand how in a quarter century the radical political and religious events, and figures, transformed the social, political and religious structures of England, giving birth to the foundation of England as a united kingdom, and significant world power. 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.

HIST362A: Culture Food & Health in Japan

How do we know what is good for us, who gets to decide, and how does "healthy" change over time? This seminar explores these basic questions through the lens of Japanese food culture: the dietary trends, choices, and ideas of proper consumption that help shape the relationship between people's bodies and the world around them. We will discuss how and why ¿eating right¿ became such an important issue in Japan from the seventeenth century to the present and ask what the everyday experience of eating can tell us about the core themes, concepts, and events in Japanese and East Asian history. By putting Japanese foodways in conversation with global gastronomy, we will investigate what makes food cultural and what makes it historical. This course welcomes undergraduates of all interests and majors, and no prior knowledge of Japanese language or history is required. Additional materials in East Asian languages will be made available upon request.

These will be juxtaposed to different forms of narrative construction: movies, novels, and autobiographical accounts. With this integrated approach, the course examines the history of the People's Republic of China but also the continuous interplay between historiography and politics, history and memory, popular culture and learning.

HIST376A: Contemp China in Hist Perspect

The People's Republic of China has emerged as the second largest economy in the world and a major player on the global stage, and that has quickly turned it into an object of both admiration and fear, appreciation and vilification. How we view China depends in part on our political leanings, what kind of media we consume, but, most importantly, on what we actually know about the country, its people, and its history. This course explores some of the most important issues concerning today's China and its relationship with the rest of the world, by viewing them in a longer historical perspective and focusing on the complex legacy of the last two hundred years. While we will adopt a historian's approach, we will read and use works by sociologists, anthropologists, and political scientists. And while the focus of the course is China, the methodology we deploy here can and should be applied to other cases.

HIST428: Food, Health & Enviro in Hist

Does food have a history? While seemingly a mundane aspect of everyday life, food has been central to cultural meaning, political conflict, religious life, and economic and social systems.

Topics may include: the creation of the modern food system, the relationship between food production and landscape change, the shift from local to long-distance food procurement, the transformation of diet, the industrialization of agriculture, farm labor, the history of nutritional science and expert advice about what kinds of foods to eat, the development of global commodity chains, the environmental consequences of changes in the food system, the origins of public policy initiatives such as the school lunch and farm programs, and the rise of movements to challenge the conventional food system, such as vegetarianism, organic agriculture, and the local food movement. We will focus on historical experiences in their global and comparative context. Through this course, we will explore how a historical perspective can be insightful in understanding the food system.

HIST474: History of Human Rights

Daily we watch, seemingly helplessly, as people are displaced from their communities, homelands, and countries and subsequently seek asylum around the world, sometimes within our own local southwest communities; is this new, or is there a history to mobility and suffering? Key causes of displacement, such as war, violence, persecution, and modes of terror, and the ensuing consequences of violent displacement, such as poverty, disease, physical and psychological trauma, and vulnerability to human rights abuses, all have historical antecedents. In this course, we explore history of human rights, citizenship and refugee by exploring their relationship with nationalism, imperialism, war and displacement. We consider various local and global schemes to safeguard the dignity of human populations with domestic, regional, and international law, policy, and humanitarian action.

JUS321: Women In Judaism

This course examines religion and gender through the study of women in Judaism. How do scholars construct a history of women in ancient Judaism when Jewish sacred texts are written by and for men? How have modern Jewish women accommodated feminist ideals without undermining the authority of the established tradition? What impact has the feminist movement had on Jewish communal institutions in the United States and Israel? In this course, we explore these questions and others by examining the influence Jewish religious beliefs and practices have played in the formation of Jewish women¿s identities, image and their understanding of power and authority. Students study the role of women in the formation of Judaism and Jewish society as a culturally constructed and historically changing category through archaeology, biblical studies, rabbinics, theology, folklore, social and political movements.

LAS150B1: Mod Lat Am:Race, Rights, Revol

In this course, students will apply a social science perspective to the study of Latin America as a complex region. This course will examine the historical, political, economic, and social factors contributing to racism, inequality, and violence in Latin America, as well as how Latin Americans have fought for social justice and waged social revolutions to challenge systems of oppression. This course emphasizes the experiences, struggles, and contributions of marginalized populations such as women, Black and Indigenous people, economically disadvantaged, and members of LGBTQIA+ communities. Using the analytical tools and qualitative methods of social scientists, students in this course will analyze how specific case studies exemplify broader regional trends; identify the historical antecedents of current events; and propose solutions to pressing global problems. Along the way, students will reflect on their own stereotypes about Latin American countries and peoples and come to a greater understanding of the importance of learning about this dynamic region of the world.

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.

We begin by situating Central America in broad Latin American historical contexts with examinations of colonialism, nation-building, and the modern political economies of the region. We then turn to topical examinations of indigenous identity, culture, and languages. Through individual and collective research and analysis, students will examine the following themes of this course: colonization and imperialism; indigenous identity and culture; race and mestizaje; migration and human rights; and indigenous movements of Central America.

LAS230: Latin America: Food & Culture

Food is of wide-ranging interest because it makes up a significant part of the cultures that bind people together into national communities. Food is central to cross-cultural studies of behavior, thought, and symbolism. This course explores the connections between what people in Latin America eat and who they are through cross-cultural study of Latin Americans' food production, preparation, and consumption. Readings are organized around critical discussions of what people cook and eat in Mexico, Tucson-Mexico Border, Caribbean, Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina. A primary goal of the course is to provide students with theoretical and empirical tools to understand and evaluate the relationship between food, history, culture, and economy in Latin America at local and global levels.

LAS306: Latin American Health

What does a pandemic like Covid-19 teach us about health today? As we continue to grapple with the tragedies and drastic changes to social life induced by the Corona virus, this course invites students to reconsider health and medicine in Latin America through the concept of the pandemic. This course, however, does not offer a comprehensive account of historical and contemporary pandemics in the Latin American region. Instead, it asks students to analyze the idea of the pandemic itself--an injurious force that spreads across land masses, oceans, and national borders--- to reassess our understanding of health today. The course will argue that in order to analyze health problems in Latin American localities, we must always hold in mind the figure of the pandemic or, in other words, to imagine how the global is always constitutive of local dynamics of health.
