ANEE 229: Introduction to Egyptology

Have you marveled at how the pyramids were built? Ever wanted to read the Book of the Dead? Or were you always fascinated by mummies, expansive temples and Egyptian gods and goddesses? This course will cover all these topics, and many more, through an exploration of the writings, art, and architecture of the ancient Egyptians. In addition to examining the archaeological remains of Egyptian civilization, the course will incorporate an introduction to translation of hieroglyphs–the written form of the ancient Egyptian language.

BIOL 302: Human Learning and the Brain

This course focuses on the question, “How does my brain learn and how can its learning best be facilitated?” Each student is required to develop a comprehensive theory about personal learning. These theories will take the form of a major paper which will be expanded and modified throughout the semester. Readings and class discussions will focus on the following topics: learning and education systems, major structures of the brain and their role in learning, neuronal wiring of the brain and how learning changes it, the emotional brain and its essential role in learning, language and the brain, the role of images in learning, memory and learning (and related pathologies, such as PTSD). Students are expected to incorporate information on these topics into their personal theory of learning. In so doing, students are expected to articulate meaningful questions, skillfully employ research and apply their own knowledge to address such questions, produce clear, precise academic prose to explicate their ideas, and provide relevant and constructive criticism during class discussions.
Offered as BIOL 302 and COGS 322.

ETHS 385/485: Hispanic Literature in Translation

This course is designed to introduce students to the richly diverse literary production of Latin America.  The focus will be upon discussion and analysis of pivotal poems, essays and narrative texts, combined with an historical-literary perspective, in order for students to gain insight into the diverse styles and tendencies that reflect the development of literature in Latin America. Following a brief overview of texts produced during the Colonial period and the 19th century, we will focus primarily upon contemporary literary production in this region in an attempt to better understand and discuss a number of central socio-economic, political and cultural/artistic issues confronted by the Latin American author:  depicting and making sense of Latin America as a distinct place and culture, nation-building, neo-colonialism, dictatorship, human rights, revolution, race, ethnicity, gender and sexual politics. Counts toward Spanish major only as related course.
