Satisfies the Diversity General Requirement. This course examines various ways that childhood has been discussed, researched, and understood as a social phenomenon and social institution. Course materials are selected to illustrate how various notions of childhood and "the child" impact cultural understandings regarding the nature of children. Historical as well as contemporary research and perspectives are used to address such issues as changing definitions of childhood; changing age norms; the idea of children as social actors; race, gender, and social class aspects of children's experiences; children's rights; and child labor and work in a global context.

Considers the 20th and 21st centuries as eras of globalization in which traditional social and familial structures are breaking down. Within this context children's experiences are infused by influences from across the globe. In this course we will examine the extent to which children are impacted by global factors including cultural and religious diversity and hybridity, transnational families, and interethnic relationships. Salient issues will include children's identity in a globalized world, the maintenance or erosion of tradition, the impact of travel, and the impact of globalization on children's cultural worlds. The course will draw upon international examples of globalization and the interrelationships between local and global factors in children's worlds.

Explores the relationship between gender and education, focusing primarily on the context of K-12 schooling. Through multidisciplinary social science studies, films, and biographical narratives, students consider the ways in which gender is socially constructed within schools. We explore the construction and contestation of gendered identities through multiple mechanisms including within-school social interactions, practices, policies, and structures, as well as through broader sociocultural norms. How do the media, family life, and government shape patterns of gender within schools? Also, the course will explore briefly trends in gender and higher education as well as international trends in girls' education.

Prerequisite: 50:350:102. Off-Campus course at Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst. Hybird course in Sakai with some online content; go to http://sakai.rutgers.edu. Note special schedule. The short lived but powerful poetic revolution known as Romanticism begins most clearly in 1798 with the publication of Wordsworth’s and Coleridge’s Lyrical Ballads. But as with most intellectual and aesthetic movements there were precursors to this alteration of thought. We will be looking at this sea change in philosophic approaches, not just to poetry in English, but to the world in depth and detail. The Age of Reason of the 18th Century gives way to the Age of Imagination in the 19th. The emphasis on the rational mind, so much advanced by the neo- classicists, gradually succumbs to emphasis on the emotional, the power of natural settings to remake and change us. We are launching on an adventure, one that takes us back in time to a world different from our own in many ways. But also it is a world that still speaks to us across the voids of time and place.

Through wide-ranging strategies that transcend pedagogy, theory, and research, this seminar proposes ways to immerse and engage students in a literary practice. The course is divided in four sections: "Teaching and Learning Literature: Understanding Tradition, Rethinking Practice," "Expanding the Canon," "How to Talk and Write About Spanish/Latin American Literature," and "Writing Assignments and Assessment in Literature Classes: Perennial Problems and Provisional Solutions." Students taking this course will be able to develop innovating ways of planning, delivering and assessing the effectiveness of lectures and discussions in literature courses. Topics that will be discussed include how to resolve and maximize the challenges posed in teaching a text in a second language; the issues associated with teaching a text from a little-known language/cultural tradition/time period; and the difficulties of teaching a foreign language through its literary masterpieces.

Demirjian, Richard

Online course in Sakai. $100 online course fee. Go to http://sakai.rutgers.edu. In this seminar-style course we will consider the ongoing memory of the American Civil War. Over 150 since its eruption, this seminal national moment continues to stand as the crossroads of our history. The sacrifice, suffering, and glory engendered by this fratricidal conflict capture the imagination of millions as evidenced by the millions of visitors to national parks, the innumerable published works, and legions of historical re-enactors which keep its memory alive. The Civil War defined and re-defined questions of federal and state authority, slavery and freedom, the fate of western lands, medical science, and even taxation. Yet in spite of all the change it wrought, there are those today who would suggest that it is still, in some ways, being fought. This course will examine the ways that Americans have searched for meaning in their Civil War, and how they have remembered it even re-fought its underlying battles in their culture. There will be no exams in this course. Students will be evaluated upon two criteria: 1) a series of short papers addressing a host of assigned readings and films and 2) informed class participation.

The Cold War, an era characterized by the superpower standoff between the United States and the former Soviet Union, provides a fruitful subject for cultural analysis. The focus of our exploration of this era will be the social and cultural changes wrought by atomic weapons and the threat of Communist expansion both abroad and at home. Such phenomena as television, suburbia, science fiction, rock and roll, the Civil Rights movement and the counter-culture are just a few of the trends and processes that emerged during these years. There will be no exams in this course. Students will be evaluated upon two criteria: 1) a series of short reaction papers and book reviews addressing essays and novels from, or about, the period and 2) class performance/participation. We will also have a lot of fun examining and discussing films, television programs, and commercial ads from the period which serve as rich primary source documents of how Americans processed the changing and threatening world around them.

Online course in Sakai; go to http://sakai.rutgers.edu. Online course fee of $100. Satisfies the Diversity General Requirement. Although gender variant individuals have been part of communities for as long as we have recorded history, transgender issues have come to the forefront of US academic and popular culture over the last decade. Today, disciplines as diverse as medicine, political science, and education are exploring the ways that transgender individuals experience life, interact with society, and utilize social services. The field of transgender studies has emerged as a response to both increased public awareness of gender variant individuals and an evolving discourse around gender identity. Transgender studies pulls from diverse disciplines to create an interdisciplinary field that explores how sex and gender intersect with identity and culture. This course will provide an introduction to transgender studies. It will examine historical and contemporary complexities of identity, embodiment, language, and activism, with a focus on answering: who transgender people are; what transgender studies is; how transgender studies differs from other forms of scholarship; and, how various disciplines have added to our understanding of transgender individuals and the intersections of sex and gender. To answer these questions, we will explore the historical, medical, political, sociological, criminological, visual, and legal issues surrounding transgender and gender variant existence.
