Course Descriptions:

DisabilityIdentity
THEREC 0813

Odds are that each of us will encounter disability at some point in our lives, either directly or
indirectly through family, friends, neighbors and colleagues. What is it like to live with a disability,
and how does disability intersect with other aspects of personal identity, like gender, race and
culture? Is disability socially and culturally defined? Join us as we examine historical perspectives
of disability marked by fear and discrimination and fueled by media portrayals. We will then
explore most recent indicators of personal, social, and environmental change that support disability
identity and result in a more accommodating environment for us all.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. Yoshitaka Iwasaki and Prof. Carol Marfisi.

Dimensions of Diversity
THM 0827

Are we really living in a melting pot? How important are the differences and similarities among
individuals? The purpose of this course will be to focus on a variety of issues related to the nature
of personal and cultural identity within a diverse American society. Specifically, this course will
explore critical factors that shape one's place or standing in society (e.g., race, disability, age,
gender, and sexuality). The meaning and significance of these dimensions will be explored as they
relate to the societal and technological complexities of the 21st Century. The best practice and
research in racism, inequality, and social injustice in industries such as sport, leisure, tourism and
healthcare will be explored.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. Debra Blair, Prof. Jason Bartlett, Prof. Francis Ryan, and Prof.
Wilbert Jenkins.

History Significance Race in America
History 0829

Why were relations between Native Americans and whites violent almost from the beginning of
European settlement? How could slavery thrive in a society founded on the principle that "all men
are created equal"? How comparable were the experiences of Irish, Jewish, and Italian immigrants,
and why did people in the early 20th century think of them as separate "races"? What were the
causes and consequences of Japanese Americans' internment in military camps during World War
II? Are today's Mexican immigrants unique, or do they have something in common with earlier
immigrants? Using a variety of written sources and outstanding documentaries, this course examines
the racial diversity of America and its enduring consequences.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. Angelo Repousis.

Work in America
AmSt 1042

A broad discussion of work in the United States, which takes a historical look at worker-
management relationships, the organization of workplaces, the experiences of ordinary workers,
and the experiences of different groups of people (e.g., ethnic minorities) in the workplace. The
course will provide students with a perspective on major historical and cultural developments in
the U.S. from the late 19th century to the present, using primary documents, literature, and
secondary readings on the nature of work in America.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. Ralph Flood.

Labor Relations: Strategy and Practices
HRM 3513

Examines the development and current operations of labor unions, the process and outcomes of
collective bargaining and the impact of these institutions on management and society. Practical
insights from National Labor Relations Board and grievance cases.
Prerequisite: Human Resource Management 2501 (0085), or equivalent course from a transfer
institution.

Planning, Policy, and Law
CRP 2014

Overview of statutory and case law as the foundation of, and authorization for, government
planning and development regulation. Explores problems of balancing public and private interests;
traditional and new concepts of zoning; eminent domain; housing codes; subdivision regulation
review procedures; and current policy issues such as environmental, stormwater, and community
impact questions.

Prerequisites: C+R PLN 1017 (0081) or 1027 (0100), and at least one other C+R PLN course;
or permission of the instructor

Offered Spring 2010 with Prof. Joanne Walker.

People, places, and environment
CRP 0807

Have you ever thought about the relationship people have to their place-home, neighborhood,
town, or city? How about to the environment? Have you ever thought about how people have
shaped the places of our everyday lives-suburban housing developments, shopping malls, and small
towns? And, have you ever thought about what will happen in the future to the Earth's natural
resources-the air, water, and land-as we continue to build and expand? Explore these kinds of
questions through readings, lectures, video presentations, and group discussions. Challenge your
mind-and imagination-and open up new avenues of discovery.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. William Cohen.

 

SustainableEnvironments
ENG 0842

Americans account for over a quarter of all fossil fuel consumption, own more cars than there are
licensed drivers, and build new homes 40 percent larger than they did in 1975, despite shrinking
household size. We feel for the pandas and polar bears, while contributing mightily to global climate
change, resource inequity, and ecosystem destruction. How do we reckon with environmental
crises at multiple scales, from the neighborhood to the atmosphere and oceans? "Think globally,
act locally" environmentalists admonish us! Direct our vast human ingenuity and collective spirit
toward technologies and behaviors that bring peace
with the planet. Course mission: enhance your capability to make informed choices, based on a
sound understanding of the ecological, technological, economic, political, and ethical dimensions of
environmental sustainability.

Offered Fall 2010 with Prof. Allison Hayes-Conroy.
