Course Title & Description: Mobile Media - Mobile media are everywhere. Our lives revolve around portable communication devices. Smartphones, laptops, digital watches, earbuds are always within reach or literally attached to our bodies. How have these technologies changed the way we understand the world? The way we interact with others? The way we view ourselves? This course examines the concept of media mobility and the influence of mobile communication on social relationships, shared experiences, and cultural norms. Though smartphones have become virtually synonymous with mobile media, this course explores the deep history of mobile media, from early writing systems to car radios and the first mobile phones. While considering the role of smartphones in contemporary life, this course looks at the broader significance of mobile media technologies and their influence on ideas about time, place, distance, presence, privacy, and authenticity

Course Title & Description: Sports, Play, and Games in Interaction - Rules are the basis for our shared social order and language. In this class, we explore rules in sports, play, and games to examine the structure of rules themselves. We will show the way in which rules are not external constraints on settings, but are in fact productive resources used by participants in these settings (and many others) in order to manage the activities to hand. By playing games, examining the unstated codes of conduct in sports, and exploring rules in everyday interactions we will uncover some of the shared nature of our human social life.

Course Title & Description: Autoethnography -  This capstone course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the theory, method, and ethics of autoethnography. As the name implies, autoethnography explores cultural phenomena through the lens of lived experience, connecting biography with history, psyche with society, self with other. The class will learn about and experiment with various autoethnographic forms (e.g., evocative, analytical, performance, multi-voiced, layered accounts), and each student will undertake a semester-long autoethnographic project, which they will perform at the end of the semester and revise for potential submission to a journal. Ultimately, students will come to appreciate the power of autoethnography and personal narrative to shine light on terrains of human experience that are unreachable via traditional research methods. They will also develop a relational ethics of care towards the subjects of their inquiry.
