ANTHROPOLOGY

Minds & Brains: An Anthropological Perspective

Are our mental states the product of our brains? In what ways do the biochemical processes of the brain explain the diversity of lived experience? In this course, we will explore the ways in which the contemporary neurosciences influence and transform our conceptions of mind, selfhood, and interpersonal relationships. We will read works by neuroscientists and scholars in the humanities in order to explore the cultural repercussions of new findings in psychobiology. We will examine some of the hopes and anxieties that accompany the recent advances in brain research, with an aim to develop an anthropologically informed, critical analysis of its scientific claims.

ENGLISH

James Joyce's Ulysses

Ulysses is often described as impossible to read (it isn't) and as the greatest novel in the English language (it just might be). A monumental book set in a single day, Ulysses seems to have it all: a panoply of literary styles, religions, philosophies, histories, emotions, and even a wide variety of bodily functions. In addition to offering an up-close look at the novel itself, this course examines the novel's use of mythology, meditations on Irishness, reflections on capitalism, and its place in "modernism." By the end of the course, not only will you have read the famously difficult and important Ulysses; you will have understood it, too.

The Marriage Plot: From Jane Austen to Bridesmaids

No device has been more essential to the modern novel than that of marriage. In this course we will examine the history of the marriage plot in literature and film, beginning with Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and concluding with the 2011 film Bridesmaids. We will have occasion to inquire into the significance of marriage to the form of the novel as well as the ways in which the marriage plot has been appropriated, adapted, and deconstructed in nineteenth-century novels and contemporary novels alike. This class will also include a digital component as we will all collaborate to create a growing database of tropes common to marriage plots.

The Oscar-winning movie The Great Beauty (2013) portrayed a corrupted and decadent Italy living off of its cultural heritage, from Roman antiquity to the Renaissance. This course studies the other face of Italy, incarnated by Milan: a modern international city looking to the future. You will study the role of Milan as a capital of fashion, contemporary art, and culture, along with the importance of institutions like the theater La Scala and events like the 2015 EXPO. Through the work of Milanese figures like Giuseppe Verdi, Alessandro Manzoni, and Futurist artists you will learn how Milan had a leading role in the reception of modern international phenomena (from the Enlightenment, to the Romanticism, to the Avant-garde), as well as in Italy’s unification. Finally, the work of contemporary Milanese poets will illustrate how it is possible to find beauty in the landscape of a modern city. Taught in English. * Prerequisites: No knowledge of Italian required. This will be a chance to read Italian texts for those who can.

HISTORY OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

Topics in Biomedicine

What are some of the main issues and fields that defined medical research and practice after 1945? What were the new physical, technological, and conceptual tools that defined the postwar era of medicine? How did new technologies and research endeavors configure new ways of diagnosing disease, monitoring patients, and delivering medical care and therapies? As students consider the rise of genetics and genetic therapy and organ transplantation as well as the broad implementation of electronics and digital computers after 1945, they will also consider the cultural, social, ethical, and policy-related implications of these various innovations that make up the rise of biomedicine. One main goal of the course is to give students an historical understanding—at least from the last eighty years—of why medical care and therapeutic possibilities are what they are today.

Life and Form in Modern Thought

Giving form and positing law is essential to modern thought and its notions of freedom, so is the political and philosophical conflict between existing forms and individual and collective lives. This course is a theoretical treatment of the concept s of form and freedom since the late eighteenth century in four spheres: aesthetics, morality, political economy, history. We will read texts by Kant, Marx, Lukacs, Simmel, and Adorno, and literary works by Goethe, Rilke, Kafka.

A Beautiful Medicine

Given the crisis in health care, it is a good time to recapture the holism and lyricism found in medicine of the ancient cultures. Currently, we treat the human body as a machine to be fixed and our medical professionals as repairmen. Changing our health care into a wellness model considers the vitality of our soul and spirit as important as our mitochondrial function. We will explore a broader vision of medicine focused on the flourishing of human possibility.

MCC: College Writing Workshop

This workshop will cover the fundamentals of expository writing in order to prepare students for college-level assignments. This will not be a lecture course; rather, students will engage in writing and editing exercises that will allow them to accumulate hands-on practice in each of the writing skills discussed. Students will learn to develop argumentative thesis statements that align with strong topic sentences, incorporate quotes and evidence smoothly and with sophistication, and engage in a thorough outlining process that will eliminate "writer's block." We will work through a "Top Ten" editing checklist for final drafts (e.g., cut repetition), practicing each skill. Students will leave the workshop with a new understanding of the practical, step-by-step process that can be used to write any college-level expository essay--and to make writing a manageable, enjoyable experience!

Edible Pharmacopeia

Hippocrates, an herbalist known as the father of Western medicine stated, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”. The practice of medicine is rooted in the use of plants, which dominated the U.S. Pharmacopoeia until World War II and remains a primary source of medicine for 80 of world cultures today. The natural chemicals, which plants have been producing as protection from external pathogens and predators for billions of years, are often effective protection for humans (and many life forms), as well. We will explore some of the common culinary herbs and spices, plus some roots, teas, fungi, and foods that are potent medicinals which support our anatomy and physiology. One class will be devoted to Cannabinoids. We will include Viscum album (Mistletoe) which JHU is using in a clinical trial for cancer patients.

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.

In doing so, we will touch upon a closely connected question: is the human mind itself a machine?

Problems of Representation

Beliefs, desires, and the rest of our psychological attitudes involve representation, and many theorists have thought that representation involves a relation between things. But if a=b, and I believe that a is F, how can I fail to believe that b is F? How can I form a belief about something that does not exist? How can I form a desire but not about any particular thing? These questions point to just a few of the many vexing problems of representation. To address these problems, we will look to theories in the philosophy of language, mind, and cognitive science.

Metaphysics of Guilt: Personal and Political Dimensions

If we have no free will, are we absolved of all guilt? Further, can guilt be ascribed to a group? We will be examining these questions and exploring the concept of guilt from both the personal and the political perspective. In particular, we will explore P.F. Strawson’s seminal essay, “Freedom and Resentment,” and Karl Jaspers, The Question of German Guilt. Students will not only engage with historically important works, but also hone their analytic skills. * Prerequisites: None

Philosophy of Oppression and Resistance*

Human social structures can be oppressive in either explicit or covert forms, even in societies highly committed to just democratic ideals. The course will investigate what it means for an individual, practice, or institution to be oppressive, and will explore the concrete mechanisms which can underlie racialized and gendered forms of oppression in particular. Special attention will be given to the political and moral problems raised by hate speech, pornography, propaganda, ideology, and material inequality. Finally, we will discuss how social agents can resist explicit and covert oppression in a way that is conducive to the realization of just ideals. * Prerequisites: One philosophy course

This class uses film to explore a central question in American politics: what is the relationship between the public and those who endeavor to represent them? Over the course of several weeks, we will address this question by viewing Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, A Face in the Crowd, The Candidate, Wag the Dog, and The Ides of March. We will use these films to discuss how political institutions, the media, and money shape our politics. We will also consider how the representation of politics in film has changed over time.

"Ruthless Criticism": Marx, Nietzsche, Foucault

In 1844 Karl Marx called for a “ruthless criticism of everything existing” – a philosophical critique of social, economic, religious, and political conditions unafraid of its own conclusions or of “the powers that be”. This course explores how Marx and two other major philosophical critics of modern society, Friedrich Nietzsche and Michel Foucault, engage in a practice of “ruthless criticism” and what they seek to get out of it. In particular, we examine how these three philosophers understand (1) the relationship between history and social criticism, (2) the operation of power in the modern capitalist social order, and (3) the possibility of revolution and freedom. In addition to serving as an introduction to the thought of Marx, Nietzsche, and Foucault, we ask how these philosophers build on and depart from one another, and how their approaches inform contemporary political issues, debates, and activism. * Prerequisites: None

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.

We will learn the psychological, social, anthropological, and economic underpinnings of consumer behavior as well as the brain chemistry that affects choices in the marketplace. Students will learn how consumer behavior can and is influenced and the sometimes-unintended consequences of marketing campaigns designed to produce a particular behavior. Students will analyze how consumers solve problems, assess tradeoffs and make choices; how they integrate and react to retail surroundings, smells, product displays, brand, pricing strategies, social pressures, market structures and a myriad of other influences and motivations to buy. Students will also explore how marketers incorporate what is known about consumer behavior into advertising and promotional campaigns, market segmentation and positioning, pricing strategies and new product introductions.Student experiential project.

Health, Homelessness and Social Justice

Homelessness is bad for one’s health, and its existence, persistence, and growth demonstrate deep ills in public policy and political economy. This course examines issues fundamental to the modern phenomena of homelessness in the U.S. – and the connection between disparate health and desperate inequality. There are ethical values and dimensions to the decisions we make about health policy – and public policy generally. Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, equality, justice, community, democracy, human rights, and human flourishing; there are many values that we might prioritize – both individually and collectively – as we develop and assess programs, policies, and systems. In this course, we will consider these and other values together with issues of health and homelessness. We will also examine tools of policy analysis and political action, and how those committed to changing the world can use those tools to engage that system critically.

WRITING SEMINARS

Metaphor and Poetry

We all use figurative language, such as metaphor, simile, and irony. But what does it mean for language to be figurative, and what makes metaphor a distinct way of using language? This course will approach these questions from the angle of poetry. We’ll ask further questions like: how do some poets use metaphor differently from others? What does Shakespeare mean when he says “my love is as a fever”? We’ll read passages from different critics on metaphor, including several from Lakoff and Turner’s More Than Cool Reason: A Field Guide to Poetic Metaphor and Denis Donoghue’s Metaphor. Students will write poems with specific metaphorical requirements; they’ll learn to use conceits (metaphors that govern an entire poem); they’ll learn to use conventional metaphors; most importantly, they’ll learn to think critically about why certain metaphors work and certain ones don’t.

This course examines the role of lyric poetry in a media culture that has become obsessed with photographs. In a world where everyone with a cell phone is a photographer – and every literate person a writer – how do we create valuable work? We will pair genres of photography and lyric poetry in discussion – landscape photos and poems of place, for example – and view each through the other. Students will read a body of poetry and criticism (prose by Walter Benjamin, Susan Sontag, Penelope Pelizzon, Roland Barthes, et al.). In addition to bringing worthwhile comments on the readings to each class, students will submit one original poem and one original photo each week for credit. * Prerequisites: Each student is required to have a device capable of taking digital photos. Cell phones are fine.

Writing for Children: The Tales We Can't Seem to Forget

In this summer mini-course, students will use canonical works of children's literature to inspire their own stories and verses, which they will read aloud and discuss in a workshop setting. We will focus on the uses and reuses of fairy and folk tales -- from early works compiled by the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault to fantasies from the Victorian era by Mary de Morgan and Oscar Wilde. We will end with contemporary reimaginings by Roald Dahl, Neil Gaiman, Angela Carter and Lauren Child. Class will include discussion of illustration, recent trends in children's literature, and the publishing process. Course instructor Sarah Smith is the former Children's Book editor at the New York Times Book Review.

Introduction to Dramatic Writing: Film

Screenwriting workshop. This course will look at the screenplay as both a literary text and blue-print for production. Several classic screenplays will be analyzed. Students will then embark on pitching, outlining and writing their own scripts. We will intensively focus on character development, creating "cinematic" dialogue, plot development, conflict, pacing, dramatic foreshadowing, the element of surprise, text and subtext and visual story-telling. Several classic and contemporary films will be analyzed and discussed (PSYCHO, CHINATOWN, BLADE RUNNER, WINTER'S BONE, THE SOCIAL NETWORK). Students will learn professional screenplay format and write an 8-12 page screenplay that will be read aloud in class and critiqued.

Forming The Short Story

In the early 1800s popular writers began to compress novel-like narrations into much shorter forms. By the 1880s what we recognize today as the short story had emerged. In this course we will trace the development of the form from its earliest stirrings in the tales of ETA Hoffmann through the Russians Pushkin, Gogol, and Turgenev, to its apotheosis in the stories of Chekhov and Wharton. Critical responses will be creative, using short sketches to experiment with the techniques, some adopted others rejected, and constraints experienced by writers along the way. * Prerequisites: None
