Fall 2014 Intensive Writing: CLAS-C308 Roman Law

CLAS C308 Roman Law


TR 09:30-10:44


Professor Cynthia J. Bannon


This course introduces the Roman legal system, and more generally the process and history of legal

thinking. We focus on the Roman law of delict, that is, wrongful damage to private property

(roughly equivalent to the modern law of torts). This topic allows us to investigate Roman ideas

about personal safety and personal space, product liability and employment ethics.

More broadly, this class investigates how law worked in Roman society, from trial procedures to the

limits of justice. We consider the sometimes competing interests that influence the law including

social status, economic goals, public safety, and cultural values. What happens when my neighbor

demolishes part of my house? Or when a doctor makes a mistake in surgery? Does it make any

difference if the patient was a slave or a free man? Why is it just (is it just at all?) to impose different

penalites on people guilty of the same offense?


We will explore the topic through the ‘case law’ method, analyzing Roman legal cases. Students

learn legal reasoning and practice them on Roman law. Modern legal cases are also be discussed for

comparison. Thus Roman Law is a good fit for students with varied interests including sociology,

economics, criminal justice, history, and psychology.


Written work includes quizzes, short essays, and a long paper. This class carries IW credit.

Cool fall courses about spying from the Department of Information and Library Science

Learn to spy!


Fall 2014:  INFO I399 (34681, 34682, or 34683)

How would you know if the zombie apocalypse was really here?

Is James Bond a spy or a covert operations agent?

Did you believe that mermaids were real after you saw “Mermaids: The Body Found” on Animal Planet? How would you keep the government from snooping on you? Ever wonder how to imbed a listening device into a cat? How do you crash a web site? Who is Anonymous? What is the “Information Age”? How would you use social media to analyze a war or your friends’ behavior?

Learn to spy on the spies!

I399 Topics: Moles, Deception, and Counterintelligence

Fall 2014:  INFO I399 (34819)

Does Jack Bauer on the TV show 24 really have to beat people almost to death to protect the U.S. from terrorists?

Does NSA data collection on US citizens create a police state?

Far from being only a defensive activity counterintelligence includes disrupting adversaries’ information flow or disseminating disinformation intended to make adversaries take action contrary to their own interests. Unlike security, which is intended to simply prevent adversaries’ access to information, persons, objects, and territory, counterintelligence may invite the adversary in to increase knowledge of their capabilities and intentions, or to create a veil of deception to fool the enemy. Counterintelligence can be offensive as well as defensive.

Spying Master Class!

I399 Topics: Strategic Intelligence

Fall 2014:  INFO I399 (34815)

What key mistakes did the CIA and FBI make before 9/11?

Will Iran soon exceed China as the world’s cyber-espionage enemy?

Strategy is not a plan, it is a perspective for previewing innovation and imagination in policy, business, NGOs, national security, and the military. Unfortunately, our normal habits of thought prevent us from being able to see past the quotidian to what could prevent the next big attack or help us take advantage of the next big thing.

HIST-A 200 "Dr. Kinsey and American Culture" - Summer 2014, 1st 6 weeks

HIST-A 200 – Dr. Kinsey and American Culture

A200 (sect. 12239) Dr. Kinsey and U.S. Culture (3 credits)

Instructor: H. Allinson

Meets 12:40-2:30 MTWR

Meets IUB GenEd S&H and COLL (CASE) S&H Breadth of Inquiry Credit


Dr. Alfred Kinsey is often credited with (or accused of) transforming American attitudes towards sex and sparking the sexual revolution. For some, he was a hero, while others have called him a fraud, a pervert, and even a pedophile. Since his death in 1956, 5 biographies have been written about him, and the 2004 biopic about him made Kinsey a household name. What made this IU professor such an important and controversial figure?

            This course examines Dr. Kinsey’s life, work, and legacy, and places him in the broader context of U.S. cultural history. What cultural trends was Dr. Kinsey responding to as he taught and conducted his research? What impact, if any, did he have on those trends? Was his research on sexual behavior truly “revolutionary”?

            Topics to be covered include: the I.U. Marriage course, venereal diseases, eugenics, sex research, the cold war, the sexual revolution, the evolution of homo-/hetero- sexual identities, transgender identities and politics, and contemporary research at the Kinsey Institute. Readings will include unpublished documents from Dr. Kinsey’s archives, and the class will include a visit to the Kinsey Institute.
