By providing a global perspective on the human experience, this course helps us think about the issues that confront students as citizens of the world. Gleaning lessons from cultures past and present this course examines what it means to be human. Whether humans are violent or peace-loving, egalitarian or hierarchical is linked to specific ways of life, rather than reflecting a fixed human nature. The course examines the economic, political, and social forces that shape human behavior and the global forces that people around the world currently confront. From an anthropological perspective it addresses pressing social issues such as sustainable development, hunger and poverty, population growth, religion and changing world views, racism, urbanization, co modification, and movements for social co modification, and movements for social justice.

Introduction to Media Studies

Credits: 4.0

Nature, development, and the effects of mass media. Overview of mass communication history and theory.
Additional Course Description: 

 

 

What this course can offer you: Media, both traditional "mass media" and social media/digital media saturate our lives, and we are living through a revolution in communication. The internet and social media have transformed nearly every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, entertainment, knowledge, politics, education (like this online course!), and so much else. Anxieties surrounding media use are widespread and growing, yet so is excitement and awe over technological progress.  This course is an introduction to the critical study of media, with the broad aim of helping students think about and analyze the impact(s) of media in their own lives. You'll learn about media history, media theory, contemporary issues and debates surrounding media, media & social change, all through topical lessons on everything from 'YouTube Stars' to digital journalism. One of my favorite parts about teaching this course is that students are already very knowledgeable about media in many respects (you're already experts!), which I provide are tools and perspectives for putting that knowledge to work. This course really is for everyone: developing an critical and informed understanding of media is essential in today's world, and this course aims to help students develop a concept-based knowledge of media that will serve you for life, even as the specific forms of dominant media change and transform. 

Class flexibility: The course is designed with flexibility for students to fit their work time in with their schedules, however it is also structured to help make sure students stay on track to complete all the work. You can absolutley take the class from anywhere (I've had students complete the class from many different time zones and countries!). Even if you've never taken an online class before, the course is designed to be intuitive and easy to manage. 

Course book costs: the class has just one book, used copies of which can be found for around $10-$15 (+shipping) on Amazon and similar online retailers. 

About your instructor: I've taught this class online half a dozen times now, and have worked to make it a smooth and enjoyable experience for students, despite the fact that it's a condensed schedule (a 4 credit course in just 3-4 weeks). I try to make the class as personal and interactive as I can, even though it's a purely virtual format. I also teach this same course "face-to-face", so I've enjoyed the challenge of shaping it into the online format.

ENGL 520 (1ON) - Literature and the History of Ideas: Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic Fiction

Lit and the History of Ideas

Credits: 4.0
Term: January 2018 - January Term - online (12/27/2017 - 01/19/2018)
Class Size:   30  
CRN: 30146
Our survey of short stories and novellas spans historical periods and national literatures. Together theses stories offer a context for literary terms, subgenres, and historical contexts, as well as diverse opportunities for close-reading. Writing assignments (blog posts and a range of analytical and creative writing options) will enable further investigations of these perennial and new classics.
Additional Course Description: 

This courses examines the sociological reasons behind the explosion of the dystopian (sometimes called “dyslit”) and post-apocalyptic subgenres in the past decade, manifested in the bestselling trilogies The Hunger Games and Divergent, prize-winning fiction such as Cormac McCarthy’s futuristic wasteland The Road, and the recent release of the film adaptation of The Giver, Lois Lowry’s young adult classic. However, these seer-like representations are not the product of the late twentieth century and contemporary period, but have a much longer lineage; for instance, E.M. Forster’s short story “The Machine Stops”, though published in 1909, uncannily predicted the iPod, Skype, instant messaging, and the Internet. In this spirit, we will identify narrative traditions this body of writing revisits to impart, ironically, a clairvoyant vision for our world’s future. Assignments include regular blog posts, longer writing assignments whose options include a close-reading essay, an op-ed, an imitative style exercise, plus three online group discussion chats from which you have a wide selection of dates/times. In short, we will discover how these prophetic forms, straddling the realms of science, politics, literature, and psychology, document, “what is past, is passing, and to come,” to borrow from William Butler Yeats’s “Sailing to Byzantium,” and assess their position at the forefront of the popular imagination.
