AIS403: Globalization & Indigen People

Globalization is a term often heard and read in academic circles and in national news, but less often understood by the average person. However, because it is the world political, economic, and social system currently in place as the next evolution of capitalism, everyone should have a basic notion of the definition, and what effects it has and will continue to have on the lives of everyone. Indigenous People of the world are the human population most adversely affected by globalization and the group that has the most experience in sometimes resisting, sometimes adapting, and sometimes creating a syncretism of responses to changing world situations. This course first gives an introduction to the history, politics, and economics of globalization, then moves on to discuss both the benefits and challenges of globalization through the perspectives of global Indigenous peoples.

A common traditional definition of "domestication" is the process by which wild plants and wild animals are adapted and altered for human use.

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.

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.

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.

This course examines how Latinas/os have been a major force in the production of popular culture.

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.

This course examines the place of fiction among social media, big data, fan fiction, video games, and the many other forms of entertainment that compete with it today. To do so, we'll learn about the history of media forms, and some of the methods of media studies, which consider how media forms shape the stories they convey. We will read novels, a play, poetry, and experimental forms that ask what technology might be changing about the human condition, including concerns about privacy, identity, politics, memory, and more. Along the way, we will encounter some of the history of experimental literature and we'll consider what forms the future of literary expression will take.

ENGL342: Writers, Women+The Gods

In order to conceptualize the way gender and ethnicity has shaped women's lives in the public and private domain students will "hear" the voices of African American women in ethnography, history and literature as we discuss the Africana concepts of life, health, beauty and family. 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.

Everyone has an accent, but some are heard as "neutral" and others as markers of difference. This has serious implications: accent discrimination costs jobs, housing applications, and asylum claims. Do literary texts have accents, like people do? Students will gain understanding of the politics of accent and voice, while learning to use their accented voices to produce close, critical readings.

ESOC315: Publishing:Papyrus to E-Books

In the early 21st Century, we see publishing in the throes of dramatic changes, from print to electronic most obviously but also in who authors books, the economics of publishing, and how books get to readers. These changes remind us that the dynamics of the movement of the written word to its audience are an integral part of the society in which books are written, produced, and circulate. This 3-credit course takes an historical perspective on publishing, which we will define as the processes by which books come into being in multiple copies and are distributed to reach their audiences. We will start with ancient societies all over the world, and we will investigate the circumstances across societies in which books distinguish themselves from administrative records and begin to serve the needs of the literate elite. We will examine the way the physical form of the book and the technologies for producing it arise from the circumstances of each society, and in turn, how that physical format conditions the character of books and their use. We will trace the rise of publishing practices and identify the factors necessary for the reproduction and distribution of books to form an actual trade in books in varying societies. As we work our way from the ancient world to the early modern world, we will compare publishing practices in different societies and explore commonalities and differences in the relationships that develop between the creation, reproduction and distribution of books. Of particular focus will be our comparison of the rise of publishing and book trades in Europe, Asia, and the Arab world before 1450. After the introduction of printing with metal moveable type in Europe, associated with Gutenberg in approximately 1450, we will have an opportunity to observe the changes that this new technology makes in publishing and the book trade, by comparing the mature manuscript book trade of the late middle ages to that of the hand-press book publishing of early modern Europe. In the run up to the mid-term we will see the effect of monetary capital on the book trades and the shaping of the function of the publisher (although not yet called that). We will also examine related publishing matters such as art and decorative print production as well as the emergence and social role of pamphlets.
Terms offered: Spring 2020

ESOC316: Digital Commerce

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

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

How have literary expression and our understandings of the self changed alongside the media technologies of the twenty-first century? This course examines the place of fiction among social media, big data, fan fiction, video games, and the many other forms of entertainment that compete with it today. To do so, we'll learn about the history of media forms, and some of the methods of media studies, which consider how media forms shape the stories they convey. We will read novels, a play, poetry, and experimental forms that ask what technology might be changing about the human condition, including concerns about privacy, identity, politics, memory, and more. Along the way, we will encounter some of the history of experimental literature and we'll consider what forms the future of literary expression will take.

ESOC330: Digital Dilemmas

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

This course will develop and refine skills and understanding of multimedia in contemporary culture. Offering a survey of innovative works in film and information arts, this course will allow students a hands-on opportunity to respond to concepts covered in class using self-produced media. This course will address how information functions in time-based forms of multimedia and video in this era of interactive information and displays. 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.

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. 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.

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.

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.

GWS404C: Cleopatra: Power, Passion, Pro

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

GWS411: Human Sexuality in World Hist

In this course we will trace the evolution of sexualities in historical context and the way human societies around the World construct their notions of sexualities over time. We will survey important developments in the history of sexuality from approximately 5000 B.C.E. to the present. We will concentrate on human beings' changing perceptions of the meaning of sexualities and how they relate to the dynamics of the political, cultural, and social movements that dominated World history throughout this period. In the modern period, people have attached meanings to sexualities that reflect deep social divisions between states and societies about the assignment of sexual and gender norms, regulation, criminalization, and sexual politics. We will try to ascertain the historical development of these contested meanings.

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.

HIST160D1: Food & Power in Global History

Are we really what we eat? Why do certain foods appeal and other 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? This course investigates these and other questions by considering the discovery, evolution, and migration of food and drink in world history in cultural context 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.

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.

HIST373: Politics of Health & Medicine

In this course we will examine the history of health - and health care - as well as the political dimensions of scientific research and medicine. Based on the understanding that health and health care are subject to political competitions on the nation state level and are mediated by changing global paradigms, we will use readings and class discussions to draw conclusions about citizenship rights in the Americas. We will start with a number of broad questions to make specific links: When did the responsibilities for citizens' health shift from being rooted in notions of charity to a sense of citizens' entitlement to state services? When, and under what circumstances, can people put pressure on their political leaders and make states accept increased responsibility for citizens' health? How can we best understand the links between global paradigm shifts and nation-state policy changes that protect public health as citizens' entitlement and a human right? And what are the historical reproductions of inequality that we find as we trace health policies in specific regions or nations? In 1946, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined health to be "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." The WHO also provided a definition of public health, referring to "all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases." The WHO's definition of health has been praised for its holistic vision; simultaneously it was condemned for being unrealistic, or, in the words of historian Robert Hughes, for being "more realistic for a bovine than a human state of existence." What are the political, economic, and social factors that make holistic approaches to disease (and to the protection of health) so difficult? Why would it be unrealistic to protect the health of all humans, and to assure that all populations have access to appropriate and cost-effective care, including health promotion and disease prevention services? How are the difficulties of protecting human health linked to competing definitions of disease, and how have the definitions of disease changed over time? We will explore how outcomes of scientific and medical research - as well as health policies, and the practice of medicine -- are shaped by historical subjectivities and are linked to such categories as race, class, gender, age, experience, and ability. Subjects will include (but are not limited to) social and socialized medicine, epidemics and diseases as "unequal killers," racial profiling, the projects of "missionaries of science" and "health internationalists," definitions of madness and sanity, competitions between traditional medicine and "modern" medical practice, and power struggles and political rivalries over the role of the state in welfare and the protection of public health.

The course explores the role of major governmental and non-governmental institutions in human rights activism, and analyzes emerging approaches to transnational geographies of justice. We will explore the ongoing contested boundaries of universal human rights protection, including gender and human rights; the collective rights of indigenous peoples; prisoners of war; and the rights of non-citizens within a global human rights regime still largely scripted by the dictates of national sovereignty.

HIST404C: Cleopatra: Power, Passion, Pro

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

We will concentrate on human beings' changing perceptions of the meaning of sexualities and how they relate to the dynamics of the political, cultural, and social movements that dominated World history throughout this period. In the modern period, people have attached meanings to sexualities that reflect deep social divisions between states and societies about the assignment of sexual and gender norms, regulation, criminalization, and sexual politics. We will try to ascertain the historical development of these contested meanings.

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. Food has also been closely connected, both materially and in the realm of ideas, to bodily health and the natural environment, which will be the key themes of this course.

HIST504C: Cleopatra: Power, Passion, Pro

This course focuses on Cleopatra VII (69-30 BCE), the last ruler of Ptolemaic Egypt and one of the best-known women in history and a key powerbroker during a period of important political change, one with enduring repercussions for the western world. She has been, however, deliberately memorialized as a "romantic" agent, a deployer of "feminine wiles", whose gender and political toolbox rightly doomed her efforts to failure. Students will interrogate the process of transforming a historical individual into an object lesson, a trope of femininity, and a cinematic legend, unpacking the messages crafted for a range of audiences and purposes by multiple creators, including Cleopatra herself. We begin with the historical background of the Hellenistic period, cosmopolitan and multicultural, focusing especially on the dynamism of women in the ideology of royal power and as image-makers in their own right, developing special forms for female authority and female patronage. A number of earlier Cleopatras establish context and particular precedents, creating official personae to engage effective interactions with fundamental groups; these include the resilient Ptolemaic queen Cleopatra II (r. 175-116 BCE) and Cleopatra Thea, token in a dynastic alliance who became Great Queen of Syria, dominating the Seleucid throne for a generation. Students will then sift through the evidence for Cleopatra VII, both the contentious (and largely hostile) material for her Mediterranean activities as well as the Egyptian record that may represent the specific efforts of the queen herself, utilizing then-ancient symbol and ritual to assert her legitimate imperial authority and structure her collaboration with major stakeholders in the Nile realm. The last section of the course looks to the lingering memory of Cleopatra long after her death, closely examining images in drama, art, and film to explore how the story of Cleopatra has been crafted and recrafted to represent different "truths" about sex, power, and identity. Graduate-level requirements include two short in-class presentations on particular aspects of course material; weekly responses to the assigned reading, focusing on modern scholarship; and a 5000-word final paper, comparative in nature.

HIST511: Human Sexuality in World Hist

In this course we will trace the evolution of sexualities in historical context and the way human societies around the World construct their notions of sexualities over time. We will survey important developments in the history of sexuality from approximately 5000 B.C.E. to the present. We will concentrate on human beings' changing perceptions of the meaning of sexualities and how they relate to the dynamics of the political, cultural, and social movements that dominated World history throughout this period. In the modern period, people have attached meanings to sexualities that reflect deep social divisions between states and societies about the assignment of sexual and gender norms, regulation, criminalization, and sexual politics. We will try to ascertain the historical development of these contested meanings. Graduate-level requirements include more extensive readings, in addition to the readings assigned for the undergraduate course. Graduate students are expected to attend the undergraduate lectures regularly and meet with the instructor on a group basis, twice monthly, in order to discuss regular course readings.

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.

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.

LAS312: U.S.-Latin America Relations

This course looks at both sides of the U.S.-Latin American relationship. Since independence, the United States has been a major player in the political and economic development of the Latin American region. Conversely, policies and events originating in Latin America shape politics and society in the United States. 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.

LAS316: 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.

LAS373: Politics of Health & Medicine

In this course we will examine the history of health - and health care - as well as the political dimensions of scientific research and medicine. Based on the understanding that health and health care are subject to political competitions on the nation state level and are mediated by changing global paradigms, we will use readings and class discussions to draw conclusions about citizenship rights in the Americas. We will start with a number of broad questions to make specific links: When did the responsibilities for citizens' health shift from being rooted in notions of charity to a sense of citizens' entitlement to state services? When, and under what circumstances, can people put pressure on their political leaders and make states accept increased responsibility for citizens' health? How can we best understand the links between global paradigm shifts and nation-state policy changes that protect public health as citizens' entitlement and a human right? And what are the historical reproductions of inequality that we find as we trace health policies in specific regions or nations? In 1946, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined health to be "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." The WHO also provided a definition of public health, referring to "all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases." The WHO's definition of health has been praised for its holistic vision; simultaneously it was condemned for being unrealistic, or, in the words of historian Robert Hughes, for being "more realistic for a bovine than a human state of existence." What are the political, economic, and social factors that make holistic approaches to disease (and to the protection of health) so difficult? Why would it be unrealistic to protect the health of all humans, and to assure that all populations have access to appropriate and cost-effective care, including health promotion and disease prevention services? How are the difficulties of protecting human health linked to competing definitions of disease, and how have the definitions of disease changed over time? We will explore how outcomes of scientific and medical research - as well as health policies, and the practice of medicine -- are shaped by historical subjectivities and are linked to such categories as race, class, gender, age, experience, and ability. Subjects will include (but are not limited to) social and socialized medicine, epidemics and diseases as "unequal killers," racial profiling, the projects of "missionaries of science" and "health internationalists," definitions of madness and sanity, competitions between traditional medicine and "modern" medical practice, and power struggles and political rivalries over the role of the state in welfare and the protection of public health.

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.

Why does moral distress arise in medical professionals who regularly deal with futility of treatment cases? Should one have absolute rights over one's body (e.g. with respect to euthanasia) or are there other moral considerations that limit such freedom? What is the proper justification for allocation of moderately scarce resources? Should everyone have an absolute right to health care, and who should provide access? As we explore these and many other questions, we will learn about some major moral theories along the way, with an emphasis on applying them to real world moral problems.

LAW579A: Indig Peoples Rights Int'l Law

This course provides participants with an overview of the practice and theory of international law as it has developed to address the concerns of indigenous peoples worldwide. The subject matter of the course now forms an important part of the legal practice and scholarship concerning indigenous peoples throughout the world. Given the doctrinal and practical limitations of domestic legal systems, indigenous peoples worldwide increasingly look to the processes of international law, especially its human rights regime, as tools in their efforts to survive as distinct communities with historically-based cultures, political institutions, and entitlements to traditional or ancestral lands. Indigenous peoples' demands have generated a great deal of activity within global and regional international human rights institutions, placing the concerns of these peoples at the forefront of international human rights law. Particular attention in the course will be paid to developments in the United Nations as well as in regional and specialized international institutions, and to how those developments have practical applications for indigenous peoples in local settings.

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.

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.

LAW631Q: Business Ethics & Indig Values

Our views about what is right and wrong and the nature of the good life are part of what makes us who we are. These fundamental values shape how we interact with others, how we understand our rights and responsibilities and our relationships other peoples, species and the environment. Business ethics in the western world are shaped specifically by two theories, both springing from the European enlightenment, when democratic institutions were emerging and the economy was becoming industrialized. They are known as utilitarianism and deontology. They form the basis for western law as well as social science disciplines including economics and public policy. Indigenous ways of understanding how to be a good person, as told through stories and the writings of modern indigenous philosophers, are complex, nuanced, and embody the accumulated wisdom of generations. Historically, they supported the development of thriving nations and more recently they have survived the failed efforts of colonizers to replace them with western beliefs and practices. While these traditions are largely ignored or pushed aside there is a quiet revolution occurring in which academics, knowledge keepers, and communities are currently rediscovering modern applications for their long held ways of knowing.

LAW631U: Indigenous Research Governance

The development of tribal research codes and other research review practices has been a key component of progressing Indigenous aspirations for research governance in the United States. At the same time, other governments and institutions oversee research via guidelines, institutional review boards, and other policies and practices. Tribal research review processes challenge approaches to research that prioritize non-Indigenous methods and values, and allow non-Indigenous researchers to claim expert status over Indigenous Peoples, places, and knowledges. The articulation of rights and interests as they relate to research are part of reclaiming control of the research process and definitions of knowledge. Self-determination in the research sphere prioritizes Indigenous preferences, Indigenous control of research processes, and the need for benefits to be realized in Indigenous communities, ultimately shifting from benefit-sharing to power-sharing in both tribal and other entities research review processes. This course explores codes, guidelines, policies, and processes at tribes, other governments, and institutions that govern and steward research with Indigenous Peoples, nations, and communities; the infrastructure, capacity, and capability required at these governments and institutions to support tribal sovereignty; and implications for other entities such as funders and publishers.

LAW631V: Cross-Cultural Lawyering

Every profession must engage diversity and inclusion within its practice area, and this is true of the legal profession. Some state Bar Associations have started requiring this area of competence as a condition of practice. Diversity and inclusion within the legal profession is complex and challenging due to changes in the law and legal practice, as well as the nature of bias within the legal profession. There are core competencies required for attorneys to provide effective representation to diverse clients. This course is designed to provide tools to students to understand diversity and inclusion within the legal profession, and also navigate their own role and responsibilities as an attorney serving a diverse clientele. Cross-cultural lawyering requires knowledge and competencies that are useful in domestic contexts, but also with respect to representing clients from other countries. Contemporary law practice is local, national, and global. There are interesting and important cultural considerations for attorneys and for the courts that exercise jurisdiction over these matters.

LAW649G: Federal Tax Policy

In this course, we will examine a number of the main theoretical issues in contemporary tax policy.

While the classes will include lecture portions, to provide background and develop the main issues for discussion, I am hoping that your responses to the readings and presentations - which often present conflicting points of view - will be a major focus of our discussion.

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. This data turns out to be quite valuable, and a number of governmental and commercial bodies now sort, aggregate, interpret, and monetize these digital scraps. 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).

LAW655M: State+Local Taxation

This course has two major components. First, the federal constraints on state taxation are explored.

Second, students learn the basic structure and operation of the three major sources of state and local tax revenue: the sales, income, and property tax. Taxation on Indian Lands will also be addressed. Most state tax systems were developed in a far simpler time. Thus, a major theme of the course is tension between often anachronistic state tax systems and a changing world.

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? How can innovation and technology unlock the promise of equal justice? In this seminar 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.

This course will focus on administrative law research skills.

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.

LING114: Learning a Foreign Language

The goal of the course is to provide students with important tools to help them become successful foreign language learners. Students will become familiar with basic elements of language such as parts of speech and the pronunciation of new sounds as a means of enabling them to anticipate and effectively deal with problems in pronunciation, vocabulary building, and sentence formation that often come up in foreign language study. They will also learn about the intertwining of culture and language, such as how expressions of politeness and body language differ across cultures. They will also be exposed to different language teaching and learning styles, typical mistakes language learners make, and strategies for making language learning more effective. This information will be presented in the context of the wide variety of languages taught at the University of Arizona

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.

LING150C1: Linguistics in the Digital Age

Language is increasingly being produced and interpreted by machines, as the digital world expands into virtually every corner of our daily lives. This course asks students to explore the applications of linguistic analysis to the problems posed and opportunities created by the creation and dissemination of language in digital world. Students will learn about corpus-based and machine-learning approaches to the production, translation and understanding of language, and the ways these may interact to magnify or diminish some problematic properties of public speech, and reveal or conceal its authorship, especially in the digital world. In collaboration with the WikiEducation initiative, students will actively engage in the critical review of Wikipedia resources to assist in the identification and remediation of problematic language.
