Denise M Hare

In the course of a few decades, China has launched itself from a poor country to a rising world power, at the same time substantially improving living standards and dramatically transforming its production base. What steps did China take to bring about these changes? We will examine China’s domestic economic reforms and development, considering the goals and impacts of various policy measures, along with on-going challenges. Topics to be considered include population, labor, income inequality, land, food production, industry, foreign relations, credit and financial markets, and the environment. While China will be our central focus, students will have some opportunities to compare and contrast with other country experiences.

Brooke H McCorkle

From Beethoven to Tuvan throat singing, music from all over the world frequently depicts nature and humans’ relationships with it. Yet, music has also historically contributed to the destruction of the environment. In the western medieval world, flocks of sheep were raised and slaughtered to make precious vellum to write notes upon, pythons used to make Japanese shamisen have become endangered, and more recently, the carbon footprint of streaming and downloading music online has grown exponentially. How might we as music consumers and concerned global citizens intervene? In this course we will think critically about the history of music technologies and their impact on the environment in our quest to imagine a sustainable music culture.

Freedom of expression has never lacked obstacles or opponents, even if its opponents have often claimed to be friends. In recent years, however, both the possibility and the desirability of free expression have been openly contested on moral, political, and philosophic grounds. Is free expression simply good, or does it also impose costs? What is the relation between freedom of expression and freedom of thought or mind? Is freedom of mind even possible? These will be our questions. Readings will be drawn from philosophers ranging from Plato to Nietzsche and from political essayists such as George Orwell and Vaclav Havel.

THEA 100.00 What Stories Teach Us 6 credits

Synonym: 60260

David E Wiles

The stories we encounter from sources as diverse as theater, television, film, literature, the internet and the news, may lead us to believe things about the lives we lead and the world we live in that may or may not be "true." This course will examine some of the stories we encounter, look at ways that popular culture oversimplifies or falsifies them and look at ways that theater and literature question and complicate them. The course will focus in particular on plays, films, TV shows, news and short fiction that deal with race, gender, gender identity, class, sexuality and criminal justice. 

Held for new first year students
