AFRICANA STUDIES

Race and Power in American Cinema

This course will examine changing norms of racial representation in American cinema and consider those images in relation to the operations of the film industry and to specific moments in U.S. history that informed cinematic representations of race. In particular, we will be analyzing film as a social practice that creates meanings that inform both everyday practices and deliberations over many of the most important issues and debates in American society. Ultimately, the goal is to gain a better appreciation for how the stories films tell us shape our personal and collective identities and inform our understanding of political life.

ANTHROPOLOGY

“Cutting (out) the Middleman” ?

Middleman are popularly conceived as a person who acts as an interface between two parties, usually for a fee. The figure of the middleman, however is seen in a negative light as an exploitative element. Rather than assume the middleman to be a given entity, this course takes a detour into ethnography, fiction and film to rethink how specific social milieus shape practices, politics and networks of mediation that exceed the physical figure itself. This course will thus, cut the middleman “out” of everyday life and draw mediation into our field of vision. * 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.

Tragic Heroines

Silence is a woman’s ornament, says Ajax. Yet the heroines of Greek tragedy do not hold their tongue, nor do they shrink from acting – unbendingly, violently, and often catastrophically. In this class we will read six of the most raw, haunting and often baffling works of Greek tragedy, as well as Hegel's famous philosophical commentary on them, in order to understand how the unflinching resistance to the world of men which we see in heroines like Clytemnestra, Antigone, and Medea mirrors a clash between nature and culture, between household and state, and between vengeance and the law.

Mind, Brain, and Beauty

What underlies our perception of visual art and music? Do specific properties of objects, scenes, and musical events evoke consistent emotional responses? Does the perception of beauty lie in the eye of the beholder? What can the creative, artistic process tell us about the mind/brain? Examining such questions from cognitive and computer sciences, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy, we will explore relevant research, theory and data in the visual and auditory domains as they pertain to art perception and cognition, creativity, and artificial intelligence.

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)

Who should we believe?

The vast majority of our knowledge comes from the testimony of others, but, we are often faced with conflicting testimony, which raises the question; ‘who should we believe?’ Is mainstream media a better source of information than the blogosphere? Can we always trust government sources to disseminate accurate information, or is it sometimes rational to believe in conspiracy theories? In this course we will draw on philosophical theory and recent social/political history in an attempt to answer these and other related questions.

The Philosophy and Politics of Work

While the majority of the people in the world spend the majority of their time working, there has been a strange silence in political theory about work and labor in recent decades. This has begun to change only in the last five years, and we will begin by discussing some of the recent political theories that have sought to fill these gaps in the literature about power and autonomy in the workplace. Given the paucity of literature however, we will then turn to debates within sociology, history, and gender studies about the meanings, uses, and possibilities of work, power, and class-based political mobilization. * Prerequisites: n/a

In this course, students will consider expertise and technology as assemblages of power and knowledge that not only shape the social world, but are shaped by it. To develop an understanding of what Timothy Mitchell calls “techno-politics” we will draw from an interdisciplinary set of readings, film and social media.

Love in Politics, Politics in Love

In much of political science, political power is assumed to flow from fear. Using classic texts in political theory, this class will consider the existence of a different kind of political power, one flowing from love. The following questions will structure the course: What are the powers and forms of love? Are political bonds and loving bonds related? Class discussions will draw from a variety of sources, including readings by Hobbes, Nygren, Plato, Augustine, Rousseau, Engels, Jordan, and Berlant. * Prerequisites: None

ON FREEDOM, CHAINS AND DECOLONIAL LIBERATION: LESSONS FROM REVOLUTION

In The Social Contract, Jean-Jacques Rousseau states “man is born free but everywhere he is in chains.” In the 1848 Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx declares “workers you have nothing to lose but your chains.” Yet Rousseau and Marx, like many other foundational thinkers of the Western canon, fail to theorize the unfreedom of those who were actually made to exist in very real chains, such as slaves and colonized subjects who according to Martiniquan poet Aimé Césaire were “thingified” not only in material reality but also in political thought. Why and how could “things” want to be free? Whose freedom was being theorized and at whose expense? * Prerequisites: None

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.

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.

THEATRE ARTS AND STUDIES

ANGELS IN AMERICA (The Play) The Millennium Shift in American Culture and Politics

Tony Kushner’s epoch-making play weaves together astonishingly diverse sides of America in a broad tapestry; a modern work that emerged at the end of the 20th Century, and provides keys to understanding the American zeitgeist and the coming transformations of the culture. In one pivotal work we find the emergence of LGBT rights, the Mormon Church, the AIDS epidemic, the new “spirituality,” the Reagan-era transformation of both government and business, and the looming figure of Roy Cohn whose influence in American politics “behind the scenes” ranged from the Rosenberg trial to his work as counsel for the McCarthy Committee in the 1950s: and even his legacy in the 2016 as primary political and business mentor of a 2016 presidential candidate.

Dramatic Writing: Films That Changed America

FILMS THAT CHANGED AMERICA Prof. Marc Lapadula The Writing Seminars At their best, American Movies have had a profound impact on our society and its culture. This seminar will analyze an impressive array of classic films as we delve into the oftentimes turbulent historical time period in which these movies were made. While most works of cinema are produced solely and “soullessly” for mass-consumption and mindless escapism, a peculiar minority have exerted a profound influence on our culture. Whether intentionally or not, some movies have brought complex social issues to light, changed laws, promoted heated political debate, altered basic human behavior and changed the course of American History through their resounding and lasting impact on society I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang Rebel Without A Cause Some Like it Hot Psycho The Graduate Easy Rider Chinatown Jaws Philadelphia No Country For Old Men
