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.

Terms offered: Spring 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.

ANTH339: Archaeology of Death

How did ancient peoples dispose of their dead, and why? This course examines the various ways in which archaeologists investigate and interpret the death rituals of people in the past. Whether it be a pyramid built for a pharaoh or a pit filled with the anonymous skeletons of the poor and destitute, burial can tell us a lot. For the archaeologist, burials provide much information about beliefs and values; social divisions and status; kinship; health and diet; and identity. Drawing on case studies from a broad span of time periods and cultures, we will look at the evidence of tombs and monuments, inscriptions, grave goods, and skeletal remains to reconstruct how ancient societies confronted death.

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.

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

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.

ESOC315: Publishing:Papyrus to E-Books

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

ESOC316: Digital Commerce

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

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

ESOC477: Information Security

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

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.

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.

The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history.

The course is a seminar and intensive writing workshop for students who want to mine their life-stories and draw from their imaginations to write an autohistoria, which may also be considered a memoir. Memoir is a genre that may be defined as autobiography without attention to precise details like dates and names. Like memoir, autohistoria can be life-stories that you take in many directions because memory operates in various ways at different times in our lives. Autohistoria is similar to memoir in using imagination to create a story from one's past yet different in using a mixed genre of fiction, poetry, and personal essays. . We will read various forms of queer autohistoria and memoir to study structure and content. We will analyze how queer writers have addressed the complexities of race, class, genders, sexualities, ableism, etc. and how they take from complex histories to interpret and write their life stories.

GWS570: Feminization of Migrate

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

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.

HIST307: Perpetual Revolutions

The modern bicycle has been present in human lives for less than a century and a half. Yet in that brief period of time it has spread throughout the world and its popularity is near-universal. In this course we will trace the evolution of the bicycle in four distinct ways: as a transportation device, with a gendered component; as a site for the development of human technology; as a commodity for economic development; and as a device for human pleasure, leisure time, and exercise. We will explore its invention, growth, and development from the nineteenth through the twenty-first centuries in societies around the world. We will survey important developments in the history of the bicycle from approximately 1850 to the present.

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.

HIST311: History of Epidemics

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

HIST316: Warfare and Violence

From the time of our stone-age ancestors, violence has been a common feature of human societies. Variously expressed as the organized violence of warfare, the smaller-scale conflict of tribes or 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 the role and function of technology; 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 violence in historical memory. Students will gain 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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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. A focus on the historical evolution of citizenship law and the nation state will provide clues as to the historical practices of displacement and resettlement.

The culmination of the History Major, HIST 496H (the Honors History Major Senior Capstone equivalent to HST 498) allows Honors students to pursue in depth the research interests they have developed in other history classes. The department offers several sections of various topics each semester. Usually taken the junior year, this research seminar teaches students to organize, research, and write a substantial paper (at least 20 pages) or, occasionally, its equivalent in a different form. This project will constitute original research: it will base its argument substantially on a critical evaluation of primary sources (in the original languages when possible, or in translation). It will also actively and critically engage secondary scholarship. Although the research paper is the final product, students will work toward this through a series of structured, graded stages--for example, a research proposal, historiographic essay, rough draft(s), class presentation, and final draft--each of which may involve giving and receiving peer commentary.

LAW404: The American Public Law System

Broadly speaking, public law is concerned with the organization of government and the relationship between the government and its citizens. In the United States, the foundation of public law is the Constitution, but that document merely provides a framework, which later legislatures, presidents, and courts have filled in over time. This course introduces students to the law that has emerged from those efforts and the distinctive modes of argument lawyers and judges employ in shaping that law for the future. Subjects covered include the constitutional law of federalism; executive power, including presidential war powers and the role of administrative agencies; and civil liberties, with particular emphasis on the freedom of speech.

This course will introduce you to the law of evidence that controls the admission of evidence in civil and criminal trials.

The FRE were adopted in 1975; the Arizona rules of evidence were adopted in 1977 and, with only a few differences, are almost entirely identical to the FRE. Hence, by studying the FRE, we will be learning the Arizona rules at the same time. We will organize the course using the 3Rs structure. That is, the evidence rules operate as a filtration system, and all offered evidence must pass through three independent filters: evidence must be (1) relevant, (2) reliable, and (3) right. Only then is the offered evidence admissible and can be considered by the fact-finder (the jury in a jury trial, the judge in a bench trial).

We will begin by asking 'What is law', This will be followed by 'What is economics' and 'What is politics', Along the way we will ask if law is divinely ordained. Is it a human invention? What is the role of reason in the realm of law? We will ask similar questions regarding the nature of both economics and politics.

LAW421: Administrative Law

Today we live in an administrative state in which hundreds of administrative agencies at the federal and state law wield significant power over our everyday lives. Agencies regulate health care, insurance rates, labor relations, air pollution, elections and so much more. Despite this pervasiveness, the source of an agency's powers and its place in our government is described as "constitutionally ambiguous." Administrative agencies are not safely lodged in any particular branch of government, but rather function as a "fourth branch of government " and exercise powers of all three branches of government - adjudication, rulemaking, and executive powers. Administrative law is the body of constitutional, statutory, executive and common law doctrines that both empower and constrain this fourth branch. This course does not focus on the substantive law of any particular agency. Rather the class addresses the principles and procedures common to most federal agencies. Topics covered include the tussle between the President, Congress and the courts over the power exercised by agencies (separation of powers), the procedures according to which agencies exercise their authority (rulemakings and adjudications), the scope of judicial review of agency decisions, constitutional due process constraints on agency decisions and what a plaintiff must do to establish standing to challenge an agency decision.

In discussing possible policy reforms, we will consider a broad range of perspectives, drawing on academic scholarship, policy research, and judicial opinions that capture views across the political spectrum. Throughout the class, we will also ground our discussion in present day realities, by inviting in guest speakers, arranging field trips, and focusing on case studies of immigration policies that directly impact Tucson and its surroundings.

LAW484B: Aging and Social Justice

In this course, we will examine aging through the lens of moral philosophy. We begin by looking at questions regarding social justice and the elderly: What are the ethical concepts surrounding age discrimination, and what are our moral responsibilities to the elderly? What, if any, are the responsibilities of the elderly to society? Does western culture value elder wisdom, or do the societal burdens of caring for the elderly outweigh the benefits? Next, we explore the question: Who wants to live forever? As anti-aging medical intervention and human enhancement efforts soar, questions about the ethics of immortality become real and relevant. Is living longer living better? What is the value of life? Finally, we visit the topic of euthanasia and end-of-life ethics. Is there a duty to die, or a duty to live as long as possible? Do healthcare providers have an absolute obligation to prolong life regardless of patient suffering? Is non-medical, voluntary euthanasia justifiable? Philosophy demands rigorous conceptual analysis, and so we will focus on what concepts mean. For example: What does it mean to be old? What does social justice mean in the context of an aging population? We will examine arguments that attempt to justify why it is wrong to treat aging as a disease that must be eradicated, and we will defend our own views about the ethics of medical intervention to prolong life. These topics, and much more, will provide us with a journey through the landscape of aging and dying in a moral community.

LAW508: Evidence in Modern Legal Pract

This course will introduce you to the law of evidence that controls the admission of evidence in civil and criminal trials. We will focus on the Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE), applicable to trials in federal courts, and the Arizona Rules of Evidence, applicable in Arizona state courts. The FRE were adopted in 1975; the Arizona rules of evidence were adopted in 1977 and, with only a few differences, are almost entirely identical to the FRE. Hence, by studying the FRE, we will be learning the Arizona rules at the same time. We will organize the course using the 3Rs structure. That is, the evidence rules operate as a filtration system, and all offered evidence must pass through three independent filters: evidence must be (1) relevant, (2) reliable, and (3) right. Only then is the offered evidence admissible and can be considered by the fact-finder (the jury in a jury trial, the judge in a bench trial).

LAW513B: Law Economics & Civil Society

This course introduces students to the study of law and law's relation to politics and economics in both theoretical and practical terms. We will begin with a discussion on the nature of law, economics and politics, and proceed to investigate how different interpretations of these three terms lead to remarkably different conclusions regarding the proper relationships between and among them. We will begin by asking 'What is law', This will be followed by 'What is economics' and 'What is politics', Along the way we will ask if law is divinely ordained. Is it a human invention? What is the role of reason in the realm of law? We will ask similar questions regarding the nature of both economics and politics. Ultimately we will try to situate a complex understanding of law, economics and politics into the larger framework of American social and political life.

LAW515: Healthcare Ethics

This course explores many challenging moral questions related to situations encountered by health care professionals. For example: What rights and responsibilities come with the role of healthcare provider? Should the healthcare provider always disclose to a patient the full truth about his or her diagnosis? Should diagnosis and treatment errors be disclosed to patients? Under what circumstances is it morally permissible to break patient confidentiality? 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. This course will give you skills for recognizing the scope and force of an ethical conflict when it occurs and ways of becoming more reflective and open-minded about differing moral views. I also hope to provide you with the skills to cogently defend your own principles and lobby for changes in regulations when there is a perceived need. The skills acquired in philosophical argument are indispensable for engaging with the evolving moral discussions surrounding medical ethics.

LAW521: Administrative Law

Today we live in an administrative state in which hundreds of administrative agencies at the federal and state law wield significant power over our everyday lives. Agencies regulate health care, insurance rates, labor relations, air pollution, elections and so much more. Despite this pervasiveness, the source of an agency¿s powers and its place in our government is described as "constitutionally ambiguous." Administrative agencies are not safely lodged in any particular branch of government, but rather function as a "fourth branch of government" and exercise powers of all three branches of government - adjudication, rulemaking, and executive powers. Administrative law is the body of constitutional, statutory, executive and common law doctrines that both empower and constrain this fourth branch. This course does not focus on the substantive law of any particular agency. Rather the class addresses the principles and procedures common to most federal agencies. Topics covered include the tussle between the President, Congress and the courts over the power exercised by agencies (separation of powers), the procedures according to which agencies exercise their authority (rulemakings and adjudications), the scope of judicial review of agency decisions, constitutional due process constraints on agency decisions and what a plaintiff must do to establish standing to challenge an agency decision.

LAW527: Intl Hum Rght+Indig Peop

Over the last few decades, international law's human rights regime has developed to address the concerns of indigenous peoples worldwide, giving rise to new international norms and procedures that generally favor their cultural survival, land and resource rights, and self-determination. Because international law is part of the law of the United States law by virtue of the Constitution and Supreme Court precedent, international human rights law as it concerns indigenous peoples does not just function on the international plane, but it also should be considered part of Federal Indian Law. This course provides students with an exposure to the theory and practice of international human rights law and to how it is developing in this field. Particular attention will be paid to developments in the U.N. and the Organization of American States, and how those developments relate to the domestic legal systems of the United States and selected other countries.

LAW574: 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.

LAW584B: Aging and Social Justice

In this course, we will examine aging through the lens of moral philosophy. We begin by looking at questions regarding social justice and the elderly: What are the ethical concepts surrounding age discrimination, and what are our moral responsibilities to the elderly? What, if any, are the responsibilities of the elderly to society? Does western culture value elder wisdom, or do the societal burdens of caring for the elderly outweigh the benefits? Next, we explore the question: Who wants to live forever? As anti-aging medical intervention and human enhancement efforts soar, questions about the ethics of immortality become real and relevant. Is living longer living better? What is the value of life? Finally, we visit the topic of euthanasia and end-of-life ethics. Is there a duty to die, or a duty to live as long as possible? Do healthcare providers have an absolute obligation to prolong life regardless of patient suffering? Is non-medical, voluntary euthanasia justifiable? Philosophy demands rigorous conceptual analysis, and so we will focus on what concepts mean. For example: What does it mean to be old? What does social justice mean in the context of an aging population? We will examine arguments that attempt to justify why it is wrong to treat aging as a disease that must be eradicated, and we will defend our own views about the ethics of medical intervention to prolong life. These topics, and much more, will provide us with a journey through the landscape of aging and dying in a moral community.

Should they resolve ambiguities in favor of democratic self-governance? Constitutional theorists have offered many different answers to these questions.

LAW624B: AJELP

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

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.

Have you ever felt, after negotiating, that maybe you could have done better? In this course, we will try to consistently improve negotiation behavior; in short, to make you a better negotiator.

What price we pay, how much we get paid, how group tasks will be divided and credit allocated, whether a new plan will be adopted, how a change will be implemented... all are negotiations. Yet, while we all negotiate often, most of us know very little about why we are sometimes successful and other times not, and even fewer of us know what it takes to consistently be effective.

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.

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

LIS640: Adv Archives: Apprsl & Dscr

This course examines the archivist's `first' responsibility - the appraisal of records for long-term preservation. Appraisal is first in the sequence of archival functions and, therefore, influences all subsequent archival activities. Importantly, appraisal is integral in archiving as, through it, archivists determine what sliver of the total human documentary production will actually become `archives' and thus part of society's historical narrative and collective memory. By performing appraisal and selection, archivists are thereby actively shaping the future's history of our times. Topics covered in this course include: Historical Foundations, Key Ideas, and Debates in Appraisal; Appraisal Methods and Strategies; Appraisal for Specific Formats and Genres; and Issues Relating to Appraisal, Democratization, Ethics, and Social Justice. Course readings, assignments, lectures, and discussions will provide students with a thorough knowledge of the basic theories, strategies, professional practices and discourses concerning appraisal with an orientation to doing this job well as working archivists. This is a reading intensive course. Students are expected to attend all classes, do all assigned readings, and participate in in-class and online discussions. Discussions are an integral part of this class as we make sense of our readings and everyday practices together. Participation is absolutely necessary for success. Students are encouraged to integrate relevant prior classroom learning, and personal, professional, and research experiences and reflect upon how these might be utilized or translated in order to work with communities, their archives, and archival materials.

LIS671: Intro Digital Curation/Preserv

LIS/INFO 671 introduces the basic functions of: * digital curation, a term that refers to the full set of management processes needed to create, select, describe, preserve and facilitate access to all types of digital collections, and * digital preservation, a formal endeavor to ensure that digital information of continuing value remains accessible and usable. We will focus primarily on digital curation and preservation in archives, libraries and museums, but we will also explore and compare digital curation and preservation practices from other disciplines, such as e-commerce, government documents and various business document systems and collections, in order to understand both the differences and similarities in the organization, management and preservation of different digital collections. By concentrating on common principles of information organization and information life cycles, you will be able to translate your learning and skills to many kinds of digital collections across disciplines and institutional cultures. This course will also introduce the basic problems associated with digital preservation. It will give students a thorough orientation to the technological and organizational approaches, which have been developed to address long-term preservation concerns. Finally, the course will examine the current state of the art in digital preservation and assess what challenges remain in research and implementation, policy, and ethical challenges in digital curation and preservation efforts. This course is designed to help new information professionals identify roles to play in managing and preserving digital objects and collections, and at the same time to enhance their effectiveness in working across organizational and technical boundaries.

MAS150B2: Social Justice

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

MAS312: 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.

The course is a seminar and intensive writing workshop for students who want to mine their life-stories and draw from their imaginations to write an autohistoria, which may also be considered a memoir. Memoir is a genre that may be defined as autobiography without attention to precise details like dates and names. Like memoir, autohistoria can be life-stories that you take in many directions because memory operates in various ways at different times in our lives. Autohistoria is similar to memoir in using imagination to create a story from one's past yet different in using a mixed genre of fiction, poetry, and personal essays. . We will read various forms of queer autohistoria and memoir to study structure and content. We will analyze how queer writers have addressed the complexities of race, class, genders, sexualities, ableism, etc. and how they take from complex histories to interpret and write their life stories.

MAS470: The Feminization of Migration

This a co-convened course that will include advanced 4th-year undergraduate students who along with graduate students (enrolled in MAS 570) will examine migration as a worldwide phenomenon in part due to the greater participation of women. 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, much of which can be traced 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 neoliberal economics and 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.

PA420: Regulating Intoxicants

Policy makers have long struggled to regulate intoxicating substances, including alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and opioids. While some of these substances are widely used for recreational or medicinal purposes, they can have significant deleterious effects on both the individual and societal levels. Furthermore, although evidence suggests that some policies to limit consumption of these substances may improve social welfare, other policies may unintentionally exacerbate societal inequality and cause further harms to public health and safety. In this course, we will analyze the various policy approaches that have been used to manage intoxicating substances, paying particular attention to the policy actors that have been involved, policy mechanisms that have been used, and the consequences of these responses. Simultaneously, we will explore the principles and analytic tools commonly employed during evidence-based policy making, and examine how they may be used to address regulation of intoxicating substances. While we will investigate efforts to regulate a variety of substances, we will pay particular attention to developments surrounding the legalization of marijuana.

PA421: Cybercrime and Surveillance

This is a one-semester undergraduate seminar on cybercrime, surveillance, and privacy. While the development of the internet and related technologies have fundamentally transformed society, not all of these changes have been positive. In addition to facilitating rapid economic and social exchange, the internet has also transformed traditional methods of engaging in and investigating criminal actions, and enabled entirely new categories of illicit activities. Careful regulation of the internet can maximize social benefits while disincentivizing harmful activity. However, identifying, implementing, and evaluating these regulations requires a combination of technology and policy expertise, as well as the ability to engage with decisionmakers in both the public and private sector. In this course, we will both explore the tools used to conduct policy analysis and apply those tools to a wide variety of cyber-related policy problems. The class will begin by exploring the engineering and infrastructure necessary to implement commonly-used consumer technologies such as telephones and the internet. We will then turn to the ways in which this technology can be used for harmful ends, including cyber crime, cyber terrorism, and cyber warfare. As the internet has also transformed the tools that can be used to counteract these harmful activities, we will then discuss electronic surveillance and the ways that electronic surveillance can challenge and complicate long-standing societal understandings of privacy. We will conclude with a series of case studies, where we will further investigate the topics learned in class by applying them to a series of contemporary policy issues.

PA450: Crime Measurement

Criminologists generally use at least three distinct measures of crime: (1) crimes known to the police (Uniform Crime Reports, 911 calls, etc.); (2) victimization surveys (e.g., the National Crime Victimization Survey); and (3) offender self-reports. Each of these three measures has idiosyncratic strengths and weaknesses that recommend its use for some purposes but not for others. In broad outline, the course will investigate research that has used each of these three measurement methods, focusing on similarities and differences in the methods.
