Spring Intersession 2014

Introduction

INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

IDS 320-41 Work in Contemporary America (online) (3)
In the last fifty years we have witnessed a significant transformation in how we as individuals understand work and how technology and immigration have radically restructured labor markets in the United States and around the world. As a result, this course examines how work has changed since the industrial revolution. In particular we will examine the entry of women in to the formal sector of the labor economy, immigrant labor, outsourcing, wages, the impact of technology such as email and new media on work. Also, given the most recent “Great Recession” we will also examine how this economic downturn has changed the dynamics of work in America. Thus, we will examine how women now outnumber men in the labor force, the role of the labor movement, and the response of the government to a jobless recovery.

HUMANITIES

HUM 314-001 Key Issues: Romantic Love in the Western Tradition (3)
Prerequisite: Completion of lower division Humanities requirements.
In this course we evaluate the construct of romantic love in western culture using historical, aesthetic, psychological and social perspectives. The concept of romantic love, as we will see, defines social and psychological patterns, develops styles in literature, is the center of some philosophical approaches, and is linked to values and ethical definitions in contemporary movements. Classical through modern works of philosophy, literature, visual arts, and music are examined to appreciate the emergence, historically, of the concept of romantic love. Discussion includes how idealized love is communicated through texts and to what extent idealized love is expressed in social practices in selected historical periods, including contemporary life. The following themes will be covered: individual and society, feminism, married love vs. romantic love, and sentimentality vs. passion.
