Ancient Medicine: The Classical Roots of the Medical Humanities
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This site is for those interested in ancient medicine and the medical humanities, both at Brooklyn College and around the world. It features open access web resources and other resources available to the City University of New York community. It is committed to the use of Open Educational Resources (OER).

The medical humanities is a multidisciplinary field that embraces the study of medicine through the lenses of literature, history, philosophy, the social sciences, and the arts in the context of applied medicine and bioethics. It draws upon these diverse disciplines in pursuit of medical educational goals, and in its continued valuation of liberal arts education supports the classical ideals of critical analysis and cultural awareness concerning the sickness and health of society and the individual.

Contemporary Issues in Curating
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Contemporary Issues in Curating will offer an introduction to curatorial practice, examining the processes of exhibition-making from intersectional, cultural, theoretical, and pragmatic perspectives. Since the Coronavirus has greatly altered the way we produce and consume culture, this class will consider ways in which making, showing and experiencing art beyond the “white cube” might be reimagined. The course will look at historical and contemporary examples of curatorial practices that rethink modes of accessibility and equitable spaces. As more and more cultural programs have moved online, we will question and participate in this realm using the Baruch College Art Collection to organize a digital exhibition that is then collectively designed to operate within this networked, screen-based culture.

This course will prepare you to think through and respond critically to historic and emerging cultures of curating and museum cultures. You will have the opportunity to analyze the field of curating and respond to what makes a “good” curator in the 21st century. You will not only learn to criticize but to understand why museum apparatuses of display and certain art historical cannons exist. Using the Baruch College Art Collection, you will curate an exhibition, articulating and communicating artwork for various public audiences, while understand the basics of digital software to organize an online project for which you can use in your professional portfolio.

Deliberative Rhetoric: Arguing about Doing
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Christian Kock’s essays show the essential interconnectedness of practical reasoning, rhetoric and deliberative democracy. They constitute a unique contribution to argumentation theory that draws on – and criticizes – the work of philosophers, rhetoricians, political scientists and other argumentation theorists. It puts rhetoric in the service of modern democracies by drawing attention to the obligations of politicians to articulate arguments and objections that citizens can weigh against each other in their deliberations about possible courses of action.

LANGUAGE, THOUGHT, and REALITY (1956 edition)
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

A unique perspective on the confluence of the three basic conceptual frameworks in human experience. Contains several studies, with data, of remarkable world views of disparate cultures based on their specific cultures language. The premise is that how people experience the world, then think about it, then create a language around it, alters their perception of the world in very fundamental ways. The radical notion is that thought and language, creates the circumstances of, and contribute to significantly different realities for different peoples.

The internalization and realization of this concept is significant and can possibly radically alter and change how different cultures assess their ability to, at the most basic levels, understand other cultures realities.

The Mason OER Metafinder
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND

The Mason OER Metafinder helps you find Open Educational Resources. Unlike other OER repositories (e.g, OER Commons, MERLOT, OASIS, etc.) with our Metafinder you aren’t searching a database that we built. Many other sites already perform this important curation service and to be honest, we don’t have the time or staff to build or even maintain currency in that sort of database. Instead, our contribution to the progress of Open Education is to concentrate on OER discovery—helping you find current content wherever it resides–even if it’s a new OER title that just dropped earlier today.

The OER Metafinder performs a simultaneous search across 18 different sources of open educational materials. Because it is a real-time, federated search, it can take a bit longer than searches of pre-indexed, curated content; however, as compensation the results returned are absolutely up-to-the-minute for each search target. Additional results will continue to trickle in as the search continues running and you begin examining your results. Our Metafinder is a great first-stop in your search across the universe of OER content.

Python Programming for the Humanities -- A Python Course for the Humanities
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The programming language Python is widely used within many scientific domains nowadays and the language is readily accessible to scholars from the Humanities. Python is an excellent choice for dealing with (linguistic as well as literary) textual data, which is so typical of the Humanities. In this book you will be thoroughly introduced to the language and be taught to program basic algorithmic procedures. The book expects no prior experience with programming, although we hope to provide some interesting insights and skills for more advanced programmers as well. The book consists of 10 chapters. Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 are still in draft status and not ready for use.

The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. This way of thinking combines some of the best features of mathematics, engineering, and natural science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically computations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions.
