ANTHROPOLOGY

Discover Hopkins: Medicine, Sports, and Culture

This course examines how medicine is practiced in different cultures around the world. In particular, we draw on theories and concepts from medical anthropology to study how these differences reveal alternative perspectives on the body, its health and its capabilities. To sharpen our inquiries into cultural differences surrounding bodily health, we look comparatively at the anthropology of sports and bodily performance. In looking at how concepts including illness, wellness, and injury differ across cultures, we consider, for example, how the bodily experience of pain not only varies according to societal beliefs and behaviors, but also changes as one pursues the limits of athletic performance. In addition to introducing how cultural anthropology engages with medicine and sports performance, this course enriches scientific interest in medicine by teaching students techniques of critical reasoning that powerfully investigate both how medicine is practiced and the cultural phenomenon of * Prerequisites: None

Design Studies: Detail, Product, Prototype.

When we undertake the design of an artifact—something material, perhaps interactive—we do more than create a pretty little sculpture, or simply enclose the inner workings of a product. We think about aesthetics; about ergonomics; about material heft and surface texture. In a successful product, toy, or building detail it is often something ineffable—the way the object interfaces with the human hand, or the way it takes on a personality in the mind—that results in its success as an object of design. The course is structured as a series of design exercises, each intended to develop the graphical and manual skill-set of the designer. Our subject, broadly speaking, is the design of small things: from building details to useful products and tools, the act of drawing iterative design sketches, and creating prototypes, will guide us in the development of practical design intelligence.

Mini-Term: A Beautiful Medicine

Integrative medicine considers the human body not as a machine to be repaired when broken, but as a potent mind-body with extraordinary potential for high-level wellness, resilience under duress, and resistance to disease. Changing our disease-care model into a wellness model will be facilitated when we consider the vitality of soul and spirit to be as important as cellular function. We will explore a vision of medicine broader than that of the conventional model as it integrates the biological with the psychological aspects of human experience and focuses on the flourishing of human possibility. David Mercier, M.S., L.Ac., author of A Beautiful Medicine, winner of a Grand and Gold Prize in the 2013 Nautilus Book Awards, will be co-teaching this class with Medical Herbalist Geo Giordano, MSc, RH(AHG)

Mini Term: Medicine, Sports, and Culture

This course examines how medicine is practiced in different cultures around the world. In particular, we draw on theories and concepts from medical anthropology to study how these differences reveal alternative perspectives on the body, its health and its capabilities. To sharpen our inquiries into cultural differences surrounding bodily health, we look comparatively at the anthropology of sports and bodily performance. In looking at how concepts including illness, wellness, and injury differ across cultures, we consider, for example, how the bodily experience of pain not only varies according to societal beliefs and behaviors, but also changes as one pursues the limits of athletic performance. In addition to introducing how cultural anthropology engages with medicine and sports performance, this course enriches scientific interest in medicine by teaching students techniques of critical reasoning that powerfully investigate both how medicine is practiced and the cultural phenomenon of * Prerequisites: None

NEUROSCIENCE

An Introduction to Neuroscience

Our knowledge of brain function from the level of single molecules to human behavior continues to expand at something approaching light speed. That knowledge invades our lives every day. And decisions are made based on that knowledge from every corner of life…from physician to politician and every stop in between. This course is meant to provide a fundamental understanding of how the cells and molecules as well as the regions and systems of the brain work to have you see and hear and move and remember. The course is divided into four sections that progress from the cells of the brain and spinal cord to circuits then systems and finally behaviors. Introduction to Neuroscience is designed for any college student who has an interest in the range of disciplines we call neuroscience.

PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION

Principles of Marketing

This course explores the role of marketing in society and within the organization. It examines the process of developing, pricing, promoting and distributing products to consumer and business markets and shows how marketing managers use the elements of the marketing mix to gain a competitive advantage. Through interactive, application-oriented exercises, case videotapes, a guest speaker (local marketer), and a group project, students will have ample opportunity to observe key marketing concepts in action. The group project requires each team to research the marketing plan for an existing product of its choice. Teams will analyze what is currently being done by the organization, choose one of the strategic growth alternatives studied, and recommend why this alternative should be adopted. The recommendations will include how the current marketing plan will need to be modified in order to implement this strategy.

Discover Hopkins: The Psychology of Police Deadly Force Encounters

A forensic psychologist and SWAT team leader evaluate split second decisions employed by police who use deadly force. Police shootings, and the media report of police use of deadly force against black males, has contributed to a further deterioration of police community relationships. Relying on case studies, we will focus on how police officer decisions concerning deadly force are made, what cause bad decisions, and whether specific training can improve decision making.

Discover Hopkins: Application of Abnormal Psychology to Forensic Cases

This introductory course will examine the basic diagnostic psychology principles with special application to forensic psychology. The class will focus on investigating forensic psychology queries including: Does my client have a mental illness? Why did he or she act in such a self-defeating way? Does the law require special disposition? Should my client be punished or rehabilitated? We will explore the reasons behind why a movie star would shoplift or a famous athlete would engage in a series of extra marital relationships; why a policeman would commit a series of bank robberies in broad daylight; or why someone would shoot a Congresswoman and kill and wound many others in the process. As part of this course, students will visit with doctors and lawyers (including Judges), view and analyze video and movies about forensic cases, and participate in mock trial exercises.
