VHS Activism Archive
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

All scholars, activists, researchers, and artists of a certain age and inclination are burdened with a soon-to-be-obsolete but always-beloved, carefully tended but perhaps recently quieted, collection which most likely sits on an office shelf gaining dust: their VHS Archive. Not a personal collection, but a professional one of continuing or even growing value if not usability, this archive has been lovingly built and used, probably over decades, for teaching and research and in support of the movements and issues that have mattered most to the collector. The Brooklyn College graduate course in Film and Art, VHS Archives, models how to store, transfer, share, research, teach and make art from, and reactivate one such archive: 12 videotapes focusing on AIDS, gender, sexuality and bodies selected from Dr. Alexandra Juhasz’s 300+ scholarly collection of VHS tapes recently gifted to the Brooklyn College Library where they will be housed, and digitized, for further use for teaching and research.

Over a semester, the class will take the form of a student-generated, online, openly-available resource for teaching, learning, and activism about 12 tapes under consideration. In Juhasz's recent book, AIDS Crisis Revisitation: conversations on HIV, Media, and Memory, co-written with AIDS activist Theodore Kerr, we contemplate the liabilities of the up-to-now patrimonial stewardship of the AIDS media archive, and posit activist interventions to find, share, and learn from holdings more complex than the recently revisited experiences and legacies of gay white men. This class activates one portion of just such archive, ready to be enjoyed, used, and mined by women, people of color, students, scholars, activists, and others curious to attend to the histories and current realities of HIV—and VHS–in America.

Rating

There are many books on global warming written entirely from a layman's perspective, and there is a great deal of scientific literature on this subject. But few if any books attempt to bridge the science to those who lack a rigorous background in mathematics, physics and chemistry-but who may be working on careers in environmental science and policy. The new text is designed to introduce the field of global climate change from a scientific perspective-but written in a way that is accessible to students with some or little science background. It reviews the basic principles of climatic thermodynamics and atmospheric chemistry and then goes on to explain historic trends and changes due to the burning of fossil fuels and other human-based activity on earth.

The nineteenth century in England saw the blossoming of the novel as an art form. In this reading and writing intensive class we will study several prime examples of the genre. The novels we will read reflect Victorian customs and beliefs regarding social class, marriage, religion, politics, science, and gender roles, during a time of unprecedented change. We’ll consider the ideas presented in these works in view of their historical contexts, with a particular emphasis on the novel as social critique and agent for change.

Rating
0.0 stars

This is an introductory creative writing class in which you will read and analyze great writing, and have a go at writing your own great fiction, plays, and poems. We will consider how these forms of creative expressions of operate— what can we learn from the poet's attention to language and imagery, from the fiction writer's development of character and plot, from the playwright's skill with dialogue, pacing and engaging an audience? We will examine exemplary texts and discuss how and why the author made particular craft and technical choices. We will also see what happens when a short story, a play or a poem is interpreted in film.

The goal for this class is for you to find a way to tap into, and become acquainted with, your creative voice. You’ll learn methods to help you turn off your pesky self-editor and you will be encouraged to take risks. Analyzing and experimenting with new modes of storytelling will help you gain a deeper understanding of your own writing process, and in turn, will offer you so many new creative possibilities for your own work.

ENG 7320: Dead Girls

Rating
0.0 stars

This site is the OER for Martha Nadell's English 7320 at Brooklyn College. Here's what Dead Girls is all about:

Young flirts. Debutantes. Street Walkers. In the nineteenth century, or at least in its novels, consumption, Roman fever, and madness claim these girls quite young. This class focuses on the surprisingly common figure of the dead girl in nineteenth-century American literature. We investigate the death of the young girl through a range of issues, including the construction of femininity and maternity, the intersection of class and ethnicity, the contrast between urban and rural space, and the formation of national identity. We speculate about the nature of realism and naturalism and explore the visual culture of dead girls of the time. We focus on the work of Louisa May Alcott, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Henry James, Edith Wharton, and others.

About Urban Archaeology
Archaeology is undoubtedly most famous for its exploration and discovery of “wonderful things” from the deep past in “exotic” places: Tutankhamun’s tomb! Lost Maya cities! Archaeologists are also keen sift through and ask questions of ancient garbage: What do these tools at Stonehenge suggest about Neolithic and Bronze Age social networks? These discoveries and questions are important for understanding where we came from. However, more and more archaeologists are turning their attention, their theory, and their methods to the recent past and contemporary worlds. This course explores a body of work that advances these efforts in American urban places and considers debates that make the more recent American urban world its object. The course then asks students to assess and evaluate various aspects of American urban life through exposure to a broad range of archaeological case studies.

This graduate session is a studio class on the topic of video art. Students, through creative projects, readings, and screenings, will develop a practical and conceptual approach to the medium. Video, although used as an artists' material since the late 1950's, has undergone many transformations both due to technical innovation and shifting cultural and artistic landscapes. Video art today is in such wide use by artists in general that it can seem barely noteworthy beyond a materials footnote. However, Video Art, born during a time of the intersection of television culture, conceptual art, and performance art, retains traces of all of these today. This seminar will provide a useful introduction to Video Art's history, methods, and expressive capacities. Technically, we will look at digital editing and compositing techniques as well as mining the characteristics of the many camera technologies available today.

Rating
0.0 stars

This seminar aims to channel the excitement and interest generated by the film Black Panther into a course that utilizes its themes, design elements, and costumes as a means to explore the art and culture of the African continent. This course will provide students with the tools to assess how African cultures are referenced and reimagined in the film, ultimately allowing them to assess if these allusions are informed and appropriate and how they shape our understanding of the film. The course begins by providing students with several theoretical frameworks for understanding the film and its use of African cultures, followed by an exploration of ancient and historical African empires that served as the inspiration for the mythological empire of Wakanda. The majority of the class focuses on specific characters, examining the actual culture practices and forms of dress that influenced their characterization, providing students with a more nuanced and informed understanding of African cultural practices. Students will examine a diverse range of visual art forms throughout the African continent, with an emphasis on textiles, dress and adornment. Most importantly, this course will encourage students to interrogate and question how African cultures are frequently referenced in American popular culture.

American Identities: AMST 1010

CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This course is an introduction to American Studies through the questions of identity. How are our identities formed and how do they function? What does it mean to be “American,” who claims this identity, and on what terms? How do American identities shape—and how are they shaped by—factors such as class, race, ethnicity, gender, language, nation, and sexuality?

This semester, we will examine diverse American identities, with an emphasis on the social and cultural forces that mold them. We will explore the structural differences that divide individuals and groups, and ways that people challenge or transcend these divisions. This interdisciplinary course integrates materials from literary studies, history, ethnic and gender studies, and sociology. We will read some academic theories about identity, but will more often read what a wide range of Americans have written about their own individual and collective identities.

The aim is to help you better understand your own and other people’s identities, the languages and conventions that writers use to analyze identities, and how varied perspectives on identity in the United States and the Americas speak to—and at times against—one another. Rather than settle on a final definition of either “America” or “identity,” we will explore both as products of on-going dialogue, debate, and change.

The course seeks to critically examine the misconceptions and realities of the LatinX community within the larger discussion of mass incarceration and prison reform in the United States. Close attention will also be paid to the use of criminalization as a form of social control and the proliferation of regulations, ordinances, and legislative acts that give legal form to such methods of discipline and punishment. The course will address dynamics and phenomena of racial profiling; juvenile justice; drug criminalization; and the intersection of immigration law with criminal law. In concluding, the course will shift to understanding and connecting the prison-industrial complex to what the future holds for marginalized communities within the current movement and crisis of global capital.

HIST 3401 | American Pluralism to 1877
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

America’s tradition as a pluralistic society dates back to before its birth as a modern nation state. Before the first European outposts of Jamestown and Plymouth were erected, North America was already populated with nearly 160 culturally different Native American tribes — without a common language. The introduction of European culture to North America only injected more diversity into an already competitive pluralistic society. The objective of this course will be to examine how such diversity influenced the arc of American history and society through a careful analysis of the people, events, themes, and consequences that shaped the American experience from the pre-Columbian to the post-Civil War period — with special attention paid to religion, culture, language, and politics, as well as class, gender, and ethnicity. At the end of the semester, you will have enough knowledge to identify recurrent themes and events in American History. You will also have the opportunity to improve your critical thinking, reading, research and writing skills through assignments where you will have to identify, contextualize, and analyze events, sources, and viewpoints within US history.

Examine the history of visual art across world cultures from the fourth millennium BCE to the twentieth century CE. Starting with the early civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia, we will explore the ways in which art has shaped, and been shaped by,the development of empires, cities, religions, politics, and social life through history. Our focus will be on major monuments and artworks that are exemplary of their time and place, but we will also look at lesser known objects to nuance and deepen our historical understanding. Classes will be primarily lecture-based, with time for discussion and questions as we explore the issues raised by both the artworks and the required readings.

Chris Richards' course at Brooklyn College offers a thematic examination of African art with an emphasis on the importance of women, a group recognized for their influence on and creation of artistic forms, yet seldom the exclusive focus of academic inquiry. Students will examine a diverse range of visual art forms throughout the African continent, in both historical and contemporary contexts. Although the course is organized thematically, students will be encouraged to interrogate these categories, exploring how specific art forms can fit into multiple categories. The thematic structure will allow students to compare similar art forms from different African cultures, such as pottery and masquerades. Lastly, this course will encourage students to question academic sources for potential biases, particularly in regards to the representation of women.

Introduce the student to a sociological approach to Public Health. The course can be divided in two parts. In the first one, we analyze the impact of different social factors on the health of individuals and different communities. We use the social determinants of health framework to understand why Black and Latinx communities have worse overall health indicators, or how gender oppression translates into adverse health outcomes for women. Social class is recognized as a major determinant of health: an individual’s place in society, their role in the production process, and their situation within capitalist property relations conditions their habits, their ability to adopt a healthy lifestyle, and their access to quality health care.

In the second part of the course we take a deep dive into the madness of US Health Care. It is a well-known fact that the US health care system is the most expensive in the world and performs much worse than other systems spending roughly half as much per capita. A look into the different healthcare components and actors will allow the student to get a grasp of the “dysfunctionality” of US health care. The readings in class provide a framework and compelling empirical evidence to identify the economic interests lying behind the reluctance to implement a less expensive, more equitable, and more efficient health care system. We analyze on of the ‘single-payer alternatives’, Medicare for All.

A studio course in which students will work together to create co-authored artworks. Emphasis will be placed on the creation of experimental, performative, and process-based works bringing together disparate media. The role of collaboration in contemporary art will be discussed, including examples of important collaborative groups and different models for collaboration. Particular emphasis will be placed on the theoretical examination of the collective dimension of social experience by artists working with participatory projects.

To work in the arts, it is of utmost importance to begin to recognize how artwork is contextualized by and often an integral part of the social and political world in which it was created. Through working together in groups, and encountering texts, screenings, and current art exhibitions we will investigate the impact of artistic speech. We will explore questions such as: Can art act as a vehicle for communication? Can art effect change? Can art be truly autonomous?

Examine critical research issues in Puerto Rican and Latinx studies. Introduce students to a variety of ways of thinking about “knowledge" and to specific ways of knowing and making arguments in Puerto Rican and Latinx studies using key humanistic, social science, and "interdisciplinary methodologies."

How do we study U.S. Latino and Caribbean populations and cultures? Some read literature, watch a film, read a history book… and others conduct interviews, do field work to identify and describe social and cultural practices, or collect oral histories and traditions. Are you interested in learning how to use different sources and methods to learn more about ethnic communities in the United States? What is the contribution of ethnic studies to our knowledge about migrant and underrepresented populations and their cultural manifestations? This class is a basic introduction to cultural and social science research methods with a focus on Caribbean and Latino Studies. Course includes library workshops, and class visits by professors and students who will discuss how they use different methods in their research and teaching.

Furthermore, the course will introduce you to the research process, including how researchers select topics, formulate research questions, design research, and analyze and interpret data. It will explore differences in how these issues present themselves and are addressed in designs that are quantitative, qualitative or both.

Introduction to Calculus flipped classroom. In a “flipped classroom” students watch online video lectures, demonstrations, and explanations of assignments before class. (All videos are closed captioned). Class time is spent doing what is traditionally called “homework." The teacher in a flipped classroom is able to spend time working one-to-one with students, clarify assignments, and offer help as needed. Classmates can work together on in-class assignments, engage in discussions, or collaborate on projects. A major benefit is that teachers spend more time working directly with students instead of lecturing to them.

ANTH 2140: Anthropology of Food
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

As organisms, humans need to eat to live. As cultural beings, eating and food provide some of the most basic ways in which humans define themselves. One group’s delicacies are another’s taboos, and what defines comfort foods and favorite dishes shifts drastically across cultures and individuals. Eating and food are simultaneously profoundly personal, deeply cultural, inherently economic, and increasingly political. This course is organized around the production, circulation, and consumption of food, and the political and economic effects of those processes. Students will learn to use food as an analytical entry point for thinking about relationships among humans and with non-human beings.

SOCY 1101 Introduction to Sociology (Manohar)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Introduction to the discipline of sociology. Simply put, sociology is the scientific study of society and of social life – the organization and operation of society, the social institutions, relationships, norms and cultures that undergird social life and which we, as members of society interact with and respond to in our everyday lives. The promise of sociology is a rethinking of “common sense”; it involves a reexamination of our everyday assumptions of social dynamics and social life. We will therefore explore the structuring of society that contextualizes our lives, how institutions and structures shape individuals who in turn recreate these institutions – in short, we will develop what C. W. Mills called a “sociological imagination”. Sociology is a very broad discipline. We will not be able to cover all topics that are of interest to sociologists in this course. Therefore, in this course we will focus on mastering three broad themes in sociology:

sociological imagination and thinking
power and structural inequality
lived experience in institutions.

Within these broad themes we will examine what sociology entails, the key theoretical perspectives through which social life is analyzed the intersectional operation of power and inequality through race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, nation, (dis)ability, age among others, and how social life is lived through key social institutions like families, workplaces, public space etc.

In her Introduction to Women in Theatre: Compassion and Hope, Karen Malpede quotes Barbara Ann Teer as saying: “My ancestors say there is something within—it banishes all pain. That energy—that life force—that’s inside us is there. It’s given, and it’s in everybody. Everybody wants to experience themselves as able to generate their power and to experience the validation of that power.” The purpose of this course is to explore the rich and myriad ways that women and gender non-conforming artists have expressed that “life force” throughout the history of theater. We will draw on a diverse cross-section of materials to foster discussion about gender, race, identity, sex and performance, and to celebrate, and gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation of women’s role in the development of theater.

Rating
0.0 stars

Is life worth living? Why? Or why not? What if the answer is 'maybe'? Why do we, human beings, struggle to answer this question? Why do we often answer by searching for the meaning of life? Why do we often say that a good life is happy or just or committed to doing what is good? Why do so many of us pursue wealth, fame, status or power instead?

In spite of all the ways in which our world is changing right now, these perennial questions of human living have become ever more relevant. Through the practice of philosophy, human beings investigate these questions in reasonable and sensible ways.

We will study major historical examples of Western philosophical inquiry into these questions, so that we can both:

learn about the intellectual history that has helped to shape some ways in which we view the world today and
develop our own skills for careful and methodical philosophical inquiry.

Students will learn to ask philosophical questions like the ones above, to articulate their own answers, to read and understand the way some philosophers have answered them in the past, and to revise or develop their own views in response.

We will aim to create a community of inquiry into these questions which are central to human experience.

An introduction to the field of gender studies as it is approached in the discipline of sociology. We will examine how sociologists have come to theorize about gender and how gender effects both social institutions and our everyday lives. Gender, as a social category and its consequences are so pervasive in the world around us that it is often taken for granted. In this course, you will be introduced to concepts, theories and facts which will enable you to render gender visible as it operates in society and in your lives. Because gender is an organizing principle in society, a sociological examination of gender necessitates that our primary concerns remain inequalities and power relations in our undertaking of this discussion. Therefore, an intersectional perspective will be taken in the class wherein the intersection of gender will race, ethnicity, social class, sexuality, and nationality will be examined.

This open educational resource / zero-cost textbook (OER/ZTC) course site was created as part of the CUNY and SUNY 2017-19 Open Educational Resources Initiatives.

Course Description: What does it mean to lose or risk losing your language? What is the value of language, to speakers, to experts like anthropologists, to humanity more broadly? This course explores answers to these questions through thinking about language as a cultural practice and object, a political activity and topic, and something that is deeply entwined with speakers’ senses of self. We will consider case studies from the US immigrant experience as well as cases of language endangerment and loss around the globe. To analyze these issues more immediately, you will do a research project about a multilingual community to which they have access. You will collect online and/or offline evidence to tell a story about the ways multilingual practices shape relationships, life trajectories, collective histories, and material and symbolic spaces in a community.

Sociology of Sports
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This course takes a critical examination of sports and society from the standpoint of nation formation. Sports as a product of history are inherently political and a product of culture, power relations, and society. Common social beliefs: democracy, merit, rights, and nationality are troubled from the perspective of the United States rooted in settler-colonialism and sports as a site of conflict and potential social change. This course requires a view of sports that is necessarily different from what is typically expressed in mainstream media.

Because this is an introductory level course the basic goal is for students to demonstrate a sociological perspective. One does not need to be a sports fan or to even know a lot about sports. Conversely, an encyclopedic knowledge of sports does not necessarily give one an advantage in the course. All students will be assessed by their ability to examine the context of society, social issues, and themselves that arise in the world of sports.

Sociology of Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Buried in the many headlines of 2017 was this news story about America’s music consumption: for the first time hip-hop was more popular than rock. This fact reflects hip-hop’s contemporary evolution into a multi-billion-dollar industry consumed worldwide. It also obscures hip-hop’s modest beginnings as the art form of choice for marginalized black and brown youth living in the disinvested 1970’s South Bronx. Though often reduced to rap alone, hip-hop is much more than a musical genre. It is also “a style of dress, dialect and language, way of looking at the world, and an aesthetic” (Aldridge and Stewart, 2005).

With that understanding as our foundation, this class uses a sociological lens to explore hip-hop’s significance beyond mere beats and rhymes. Through films, songs and critical readings we will discuss the social forces that influenced hip hop’s formation and evolution as well enable and constrain its future. This is not a music appreciation course so a love of hip hop is not required. Instead, what is required is the ability to think critically about how hip hop culture and music address race, class, gender and sexuality, inequality, police brutality and capitalism among other social issues. Our analysis will not only help you to develop a robust sociological imagination but also to become a more critical cultural consumer.

In reality, this poem and the ideology it buttresses masks many ugly truths about immigration. The truth is that we don’t welcome all immigrants with open arms or desire for them to stay permanently. These truths lead to contradictions in U.S. policy on immigration and the material consequences immigrants face as a result. Moreover, as immigration enforcement efforts increase with each new presidential administration, the resulting patterns of deportation and exclusion call into question the intent of policies that claim to protect American citizens at the expense of immigrants of color. This course addresses these complicated dynamics demonstrating how the United States plays dual roles protecting its image as a nation of immigrants while simultaneously determining the boundaries of who belongs often along racial lines.

Human societies display remarkable creativity and persistence in the range of mind altering substances used historically and cross culturally, although drug use occupies very different social locations in different cultures and historical eras. In the modern era, the regulation of mind and mood altering substances has become enmeshed with larger systems of social control, including public health, criminal justice, immigration and economic globalization. While drug addiction is typically portrayed as an individual problem, both drug use and drug policy are fundamentally social processes, and cannot be separated from larger social and economic systems.
