AMST 20100-Technology & Sport

October 29 at 12:00 AM - November 27, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Traditionally sport has been defined as a competition between humans or humans and nature. Recent technological developments have altered this arrangement. Now technology is a constitutive component of sport and has changed modes of play. This course will examine the evolving relationships between contemporary sport, emerging technology, and cultural experience. The fundamental question this course will address is: how has technology, in its multiple forms, reshaped sport?

AMST 20100- Crafting America

October 29 at 12:00 AM - November 27, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Crafting America" focuses on how 'making things' arises out of various traditions and communities within the larger American community, and how those traditions have acted to support and define those communities in response to historical, technological, racial and economic trends over the 20th century. We'll be examining communities as various as the Japanese-American internment camps of WWII, the Navajo clans of the Southwest, African American quilting communities, Goth and Protest Crafting communities (Craftivism) and various communities and identities moving into direct political action in craft (such as the AIDS Quilt), and students will be required to choose a craft practice of their own for the duration of the semester. No textbook purchase and no final exam; discussion, reading and essay writing based classroom engagement; regular ‘show and tell’ for student craft practices.

AMST 20100- Blood, Bones & Brains: American Bodies in the 20th Century

October 29 at 12:00 AM - November 27, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Blending US history, visual arts, and material culture, this course examines shifting definitions of citizenship and national identity by paying attention to representations and meanings of the blood, bones, and brains of modern Americans. Wars and presidential debates, sexual revolutions and fashion trends, will all become the backdrop for our investigation of how power (both top-down and bottom-up) shapes the look, meaning, and memory of American physiques.

WGSS- Spring 2015- Masculinities

October 30 at 12:00 AM - November 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM

What does it mean to claim that there are multiple masculinities circulating and competing with one another in both the present day and throughout history? Where do we locate these masculinities-­- in social practices, in bodies or in cultural representations from movies and television? What is the relationship between the study of men and masculinities and existing feminist projects? Ultimately, students from any discipline will find productive opportunities to apply the study of masculinity to work in their majors, while also learning how research is conducted in other fields.

Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies 499- Spring 2015- Women & War

October 30 at 12:00 AM - November 28, 2014 at 12:00 AM

This interdisciplinary course uses feminist analysis to examine the roles and representations of women in war-making and peace-building in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Although women have always been a part of war – as soldiers, nurses, mothers, gue-rilla fighters, military wives, sex workers, peace activists, and refu-gees – their experiences and participation are often marginalized or erased by media and history. Lecture and discussion will interrogate how intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality, and nationality inform women’s experiences of key institutions like the military and United Nations. Through a variety of texts, including literature, mem-oir, policy, and film, students will explore the ways in which war, mili-tarism, and peace-keeping are highly gendered and why women’s participation in matters of national and global security is crucial in the fight for human rights.
