  The course examines key artistic periods of American painting, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts from the colonial settlements to the turn of the twentieth century (ca. 1650-1900). We begin with the colonial period and the rise of portraiture and history painting during the American Revolution, witnessing how artists like John Singleton Copley forge an indigenous American style. We then focus on genre as well as landscape painting, where we explore themes of politics, race, and reverence for the land. The class examines the American coming of age at the close of the Civil War and examines the careers of such artists as Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, the American Impressionists, and architects H.H. Richardson and McKim, Mead & White.
1015 AMST-298-05 Intro to HipHop Music & Cult 1.00 LEC Conway, Nicholas TR: 6:00PM-9:30PM N/A HUM Q2
  Enrollment limited to 29 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote  
  NOTE: This course will take place throughout a 5-week session scheduled to end on August 7.
  This course will examine the evolution of hip hop music and culture (Graffiti art, B-boying [break-dancing], DJ-ing, and MC-ing) from its birth in 1970s New York to its global and commercial explosion during the late 1990s. Students learn to think critically about both hip hop culture, and about the historical, commercial, and political contexts in which hip hop culture took, and continues to take, shape. Particular attention is paid to questions of race, masculinity, authenticity, consumption, commodification, globalization, and good, old-fashioned funkiness.
1059 COLL-113-01 Introduction to Epidemiology 1.00 LEC Hunter, Amy TR: 10:00AM-1:00PM N/A SOC Q2
  Enrollment limited to 25 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote  
  NOTE: This course will take place throughout a 6-week session scheduled to end on August 14.
  This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental principles of epidemiology, defined as the study of how disease and injury are distributed in populations, and the factors that influence that distribution. Concepts covered will include measuring morbidity and mortality, study design, association to causation, and ethical and policy considerations. Class time will be divided into lecture and virtual group exercises, using literature, cinema, and public events as prompts for discussion. Students at all levels are welcome.
1083 COLL-164-05 Science Fiction: Origins 1.00 SEM Cancelled HUM Q2
  Enrollment limited to 15 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote  
  NOTE: This course will take place throughout a 5-week session scheduled to end on August 7.
  This course explores the deep roots of science fiction in human culture. Long before space ships, we were telling ourselves stories about superheroes, alien visitors, fantastic journeys, and utopian societies. We will pair "classic" texts and modern science fiction films--for example: the accounts of a messiah figure such as Mohammed with the film Dune; the story of the fight against a beast in the medieval tale of Beowulf and the film Alien, or Shelley's Frankenstein and the film Ex Machina. We will try to understand why these stories have such a hold on the human imagination and how science fiction has reshaped these fundamentally religious narratives with the trappings of technology.
1016 ENVS-282-05 Drone Flight School 1.00 LEC Cancelled Q2
  Enrollment limited to 12 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote

In this hands-on course all participants will pilot college owned drones to learn how to fly safely and responsibly to generate maps and 3D models utilizing ArcGIS and photogrammetry software. In addition to learning how to pilot the drones, students will explore the legal issues involved including: privacy and safety; FAA and other federal regulations; state and local laws; and current and future policy implications. The course will provide students with a solid basis for pursuing an FAA remote pilot certificate. Not open to students who have completed ENVS 281.

  Enrollment limited to 29 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote  
  NOTE: This course will take place throughout a 6-week session scheduled to end on August 14.
  This course examines the role of global commodities — specifically sugar, precious metals, coffee, petroleum and lumber — in Latin America’s past and present. We will explore how the production of these commodities has impacted Latin America’s natural environment, structured the region’s relationship to the world, and created exploitative yet dynamic societies of slaves, peasants and working classes. We will examine how the worldwide spread of Latin American commodities has transformed global consumer demands, altering the way that people consume these commodities and changing the social and cultural meaning that they attach to doing so. Drawing on the interdisciplinary field of commodity studies, students will use methods from across the social sciences and the humanities to understand Latin America’s key role in the process of globalization.

  This course explores the rhetorical power of visual images. Students will examine how rhetoric is a means for knowing, communicating, and becoming as they explore different visual media, like photography, video, and even virtual reality. Using rhetorical methodologies, they will research how visual rhetoric creates realities and encourages audiences to become different subjects through an interactive, multimodal project. More specifically, we will explore how the rhetorical appeals (i.e. ethos, logos, and pathos) transform in visual, rhetorical situations, and we will discover how rhetoricians adapt rhetorical situation theory to meet the expectations and needs of viewers. By the end of the course, students will understand how rhetorical theory and practice shapes and is shaped by visual design, multimodal communication, and the politics of visual representation
1102 SOCL-217-06 Lights, Camera, Society! 1.00 LEC Andersson, Tanetta MW: 1:30PM-5:00PM N/A SOC Q2
  Enrollment limited to 15 Waitlist available: N Mode of Instruction: Remote  
  Prerequisite: C- or better in Sociology 101
  NOTE: This course will take place throughout a 5-week session scheduled to end on August 7.
  For some, society is nothing more than a random collection of people all making individual choices in a particular time and location. Yet, this worldview minimizes and overlooks the manifold levels of social life-- social systems, social interaction, and social selves--and our participation in them. Films represent one avenue of illuminating our social world because they mirror back to us key sociological insights of C. Wright Mills, Karl Marx, W.E.B. DuBois, and George Hebert Mead, for example. Students will apply the work of these scholars to films like Wall-e, Norma Rae, Friday Night Lights, and Ex Machina. Class time will involve discussion of films and applied exercises including an extensive role play simulation of Greenwich Village, 1913: Suffrage, Labor, and the New Woman, and a trip to the Tenement Museum in New York City.
