All organisms, from Common loons to Redwood trees to Basking sharks spend much of their lives bumping up against forces associated with the non-biological world. The manner in which ecological challenges are solved (e.g., moving around vs. staying put, finding food, avoiding predators) is often related to an individual’s biomechanical design. This class will challenge students to view their physical surroundings from the perspective of an organism. How do mussels feed in a fast stream vs. stagnant pond? Why do healthy trees uproot rather than break in half? How can a sea urchin with no eyes “see”? We will use primary scientific literature to examine the physical principles that underlie fundamental ecological processes.

Think back to your favorite assignment from Introduction to Computer Science. Did you ever get the feeling that "there has to be a better/smarter way to do this problem"? The Data Structures course is all about how to store information intelligently and access it efficiently. How can Google take your query, compare it to billions of web pages, and return the answer in less than one second? How can one store information so as to balance the competing needs for fast data retrieval and fast data modification? To help us answer questions like these, we will analyze and implement stacks, queues, trees, linked lists, graphs, and hash tables. Students who have received credit for a course for which Computer Science 201 is a prerequisite are not eligible to enroll in Computer Science 201.

The last decade has seen a vast increase in the number of applications that connect people with one another. This course presents an interdisciplinary introduction to social computing, a field of study that explores how computational techniques and artifacts are used to support and understand social interactions. We will examine a number of socio-technical systems (such as wikis, social media platforms, and citizen science projects), discuss the design principles used to build them, and analyze how they help people mobilize and collaborate with one another. Assignments will involve investigating datasets from online platforms and exploring current research in the field.

Legal rules and institutions influence people's behavior. By setting acceptable levels of pollution, structuring guidelines for contract negotiations, deciding who should pay for the costs of an accident, and determining punishment for crimes, courts and legislatures create incentives. How do economic considerations factor into legal rules, and how do laws affect economic output and distribution? In this class, we use court cases, experiments, and current legal controversies to explore such issues.

Chosen as the inaugural course to launch Carleton’s new Ott Family Lectureship in History and Economics, this course includes the extended participation of three separate Ott Family Lecturers' visits. Together, we will explore comparative dimensions of Chinese economic history from the sixteenth century to the present, examine classical and recent scholarship on Chinese economic development, global movement of capital and labor, origins of Chinese capitalism, “world-system” theories, agrarian “involution,” arguments about East Asia’s economic divergence from Europe, and market reforms with “Chinese characteristics.” Christopher Isett (University of Minnesota) will explain how economic historians apply history methods and approaches. Yingjia Tian (Wesleyan) will share his business history case study on 1950’s Shanghai electric companies. Brent Irvin '94 (Tencent Corporation/China) will discuss the state of the business world in contemporary China. Each Ott Family Lecturer will also present a public talk for the class, campus, and wider community; public talk attendance is a required component of this course.

How do new methods of digital humanities and collaborative public history change our understanding of space and place? This hands-on research seminar will seek answers through a deep mapping of the long history of Northfield, Minnesota, before and after its most well-known era of the late nineteenth-century. Deep mapping is as much archaeology as it is cartography, plumbing the depths of a particular place to explore its diversity through time. Students will be introduced to major theories of space and place as well as their application through technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 3D modeling, and video game engines. We will mount a major research project working with the National Register of Historic Places, in collaboration with specialists in public history and community partners.

One way to understand the organization and function of the human brain is to examine the origin and evolution of its components. With this evolutionary lens, the cell biology of the neuron, neuronal signaling, and the organization of neural systems becomes clear. This course will cover the principles of cell and molecular neurobiology by investigating its evolutionary roots, and then use this framework to travel in time to understand how circuits and systems evolved to generate more complex behaviors. Students will develop a foundational competency in cell and molecular neuroscience and systems neuroscience by using tools that reveal evolutionary homology among organisms, such as bioinformatics and comparative neuroanatomy.

The immune system directly influences the central nervous system and behavior during both health and disease. The course will have an emphasis on animal behavior (e.g. memory and sociability assays) and techniques in neuroimmunology that range from genetic engineering (e.g. CRISPR and DREADD) to immune cell function, detection of surface receptors, and protein expression (e.g. flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, immune cell migration assays, ELISA, and western blot.) The topics that will be covered range from how cytokines influence behavior to effects of gut microbiota in brain function and behavior. This course will primarily use empirical research that will help you develop a deeper understanding of molecular techniques, cell biology, and develop strong analytical skills of biological findings in immunology and its connection with animal behavior.
