Class Notes: Jane Austen's Adolescent Angst. Do you think that you know Jane Austen? If you haven't read her early writings, you will be surprised at what you will find. Long before Pride and Prejudice was published, Jane Austen had written three volumes of juvenilia (including parodies, poetry, plays, and short fiction), had submitted a novel entitled "Susan" for publication (posthumously published as Northanger Abbey), and had published a novel (Sense and Sensibility). This course explores Austen's pre-Pride and Prejudice works in order to give students an understanding of the young, developing writer's body of work. Readers will encounter a writer who can be immature and sarcastic at times, yet witty and clever at all times. Students will consider both what Austen's early work shows about the author's range of style, subject matter, and characterization, and how a look at the younger Austen's writing produces a full image of the famed writer.

Class Notes: This is going to be an exciting and extremely varied course! Your weekly work will involve seeing an African film, youtube lectures/TED talks, looking at images of Art, reading theoretical and fictional material. This course challenges the binary heterosexual norm of European science, law, and philosophy in profound ways. In many African cultures there is gender fluidity; women can become men and take a wife. Children born to the wife are the female husband¿s children. There can be male daughters. So although we will look at issues common in gender studies in America and Europe, the very idea of gender will be new in these contexts. We will examine issues involving sustainability, war, children, marriage that range over men and women¿s lives. Intellectual, cinematic and literary movements have had profound impacts on generations of thinkers in West, East, and Southern African. Important recent controversies in gender and post colonial philosophy emerge as we explore African theory, fiction, and visual culture.

The emphasis may be on industrial or non-industrial societies and institutions, law and legal institutions, economic institutions, subsistence strategies in non-industrial societies, systems of stratification, conceptual systems, or education. Cr 3. CR 3. Susan Fineran    Class Number: 83530

Class Notes: This course is designed to inform students about aging issues that differentially affect women and men.

This course will incorporate knowledge of the bio-psycho-social aspects of the aging process and the interplay of interpersonal, environmental and cultural forces that influence aging. Students are expected to acquire skills in assessing individual behavior of older persons based on application of theoretical ideas to contemporary situations and enhance their human service practice with older adults and their families. Service Learning experience may be available to undergraduate students in the course (10 hours). 3 credits
