Interesting Summer Course from the History Department - Blacks and the City: The African American Urban Experience

DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY
Second Summer Session 2008

HIST-A 379
Blacks and the City:
The African American Urban Experience

WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD “URBAN” WHAT COMES TO MIND?

Since the mid-20th century, this term has increasingly become identified with the culture of this country’s citizens of African descent...

And with good reason: In the year 2000, almost 90 percent of African Americans lived in metropolitan areas!

The purpose of this course is to help students gain an understanding of the historical situations that informed the African American experience in urban centers. This course will prepare students to engage in broad discussions about Black urbanity in the colonial period and into the 18th and 19th centuries when most African-Americans were in bondage. We will delve into the 20th and 21st centuries by looking at the Black experience in terms of labor and the migratory experience, cultural production, and class formations. We will study the changing meanings and implications of race, the impact of slavery and emancipation, and the effects of conflict and community building on Americans who happen to be both Black and urban. Additionally, we will investigate the role of gender in the evolution of the African American family; surmise how interaction with Native Americans, native and ethnic Whites, Asians and Asian Americans, and Latinos/Latinas have impacted the experiences of African Americans; and make meaning in how leisure and entertainment, worship and activism, and health and institution-building have all been negotiated by African Americans in their quest to make lives for themselves in cities, all in order to answer one overarching question: What does it teach us about American history and culture? The above will be achieved will by looking at Black urban life in the Northeast, Midwest, South, and West and drawing upon primary source material and both historical and sociological scholarship.

Finally, this course is designed to help students learn how to make inferences and interpret texts to create their own meaning, analyze and structure arguments, view issues and situations from varying and diverse perspectives, and to familiarize them with the historical profession and different historical methodologies.

The required books—Grossman’s Land of Hope: Chicago, Black Southerners, and the Great Migration & Trotter, Lewis and Hunter’s, The African American Urban Experience: Perspectives from the Colonial Period to the Present—will be available for purchase at the Indiana Memorial Union bookstore. Other required readings are available on-line at the course website, on E-Reserve, or contained in Internet links.

There will be two take-home writing assignments and two in-class exams.

1 Credit Weekend Seminar in Telecommunications for Spring 2008

Paul Caine TEL-T453: The Business of Magazines
1 Credit

The goal for of this seminar is to gain a full understanding of the “business of magazines.” During this course, the students will engage in a healthy discussion of all aspects of this highly competitive business and critical form of entertainment. The business of magazines is quite complex and typically requires “on the job” training to get this level of understanding. The course will begin with students compiling the magazines they read most, admire most and think are over-valued and under-valued. From there we will continue our journey through the following: the consumer market (consumer behaviors, interests, desires, and trends), circulation strategies and tactics (for subscriptions and newsstand sales), editorial (differentiation, resources, and issues), advertising (assessing and reaching market potential), brand extensions (online, TV and radio, mobile), and learning how to make a pitch. For their final project, each student will “pitch” either a magazine launch idea or the “next stage” development for an existing product.

There are still 8 seats open for this fantastic 1-credit Telecommunications week-end seminar with the Executive Publisher of People Group (magazines). If you are interested in the publishing and creativity of magazines like Teen People and People why not get hands on experience with our alum Paul Caine. The class meets April 4, 5, and 6th.

If you are interested in registering for this weekend seminar, go to Radio-TV 261 for permission.

In An Instant Mock Car Crash

On Wednesday, March 26, IU-EMS and various other services/organizations will display a mock drunk driving accident in Dunn Meadow from 12pm-3pm.

The "emergency response" will be activated at 1pm in which the local ambulance service, fire department, and campus police will respond to Dunn Meadows for a 2 vehicle collision involving multiple patients and pedestrians. At 1:30pm, a medical helicopter will land in Dunn Meadow for transport of the critically injured patient. After the helicopter circles around campus with the patient, the helicopter will be on display for the afternoon.

In addition to the mock accident, we will have a drunk driving simulator (it will be a real vehicle with computers and sensors attached to the body) in which the driver wears virtual goggles that mimic their vision at a certain blood alcohol content; drunk goggles are going to be available for spectators as well as a field sobriety test; the U.S. Army is anticipating on bringing a Hummer which has plasma TVs and XBOX gaming systems; finally, there will be many free give aways to those who attend.

Holland Award for Exemplary Teaching and Service to Students in the College of Arts and Sciences

March 21st Underground Film Screening

Hello all, this week we are presenting three works featuring Yoko Ono.
Please note, due to scheduling conflicts we will NOT be showing Ono's film _Rape_ as listed in our flyer. It will be replaced with _Imagine_, a 1972 film by Ono and John Lennon (which is not the documentary _Imagine: John Lennon_).

*************************************************
Imagine (1972, 70m) was directed by John and Yoko for television, and it features all of the songs from Lennon's _Imagine_ album, as well as a few of Ono's songs. The film consists of early music videos, as well as candid family footage and other materials. It will be preceded for the video for Ono's song "Walking on Thin Ice."
Michael and Roberta Findlay's film Satan's Bed (1965, 72m) stars Ono as an innocent young Japanese girl kidnapped and raped by drug dealers.
This film is combined with portions of another film altogether (Judas City), which depicts three addicts brutalizing women. Satan's Bed is the perfect grindhouse complement to Ono's own artier fare.
*************************************************

The underground film series is sponsored by Indiana University's Department of Communication and Culture. All screenings are on alternating Fridays at 7 p.m. in room 251 of the Radio-TV building on the IU campus. All screenings are free and open to the public, and free parking is ample in the lot adjacent to the building, provided you clearly display an underground flyer on the dashboard of your vehicle.

Still Time to Apply to the Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP)

This is just a friendly reminder that The Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP) will continue to accept applications from current freshmen and sophomores until March 31st. All application components including the application, essay, and letters of recommendation are due to Wylie Hall 247 by 5pm on March 31st. Students can apply on the LAMP website at www.indiana.edu/~lamp

If any of your students have any questions please have them email lamp@indiana.edu or call (812) 845-4966 to schedule an appointment to meet the LAMP academic advisor.

For more info please read the info below and take a look at the LAMP website at www.indiana.edu/~lamp

What is LAMP?
The Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP) is an honors-level interdisciplinary certificate program offered by the College of Arts and Sciences in cooperation with the Kelley School of Business. It allows students to integrate any major in the College of Arts and Sciences with specialized training in management and business concepts.

What will I gain from participation in LAMP?
LAMP offers students a unique interdisciplinary educational experience that provides avenues for students to consider multiple perspectives. Students take courses in business fundamentals like computing, accounting, and business law. They also study essential principles of management. LAMP students enroll in a series of three unique interdisciplinary seminars that encourage them to examine the interaction of business and management with other liberal arts and science disciplines.

LAMP students benefit from a close-knit network of talented peers, faculty and staff. The program provides countless opportunities in and out of the classroom to help students build networks and to explore leadership and careers through informational meetings with alumni, established professionals, and corporate and community leaders. From the Sophomore Leadership Retreat, the program’s unique and stimulating courses, to overseas study scholarship and co-curricular activities and events, LAMP offers students a variety of contexts through which to explore their interests and their potential for success

Can I still study overseas if I am pursuing the LAMP certificate?
LAMP particularly encourages students to take advantage of opportunities for overseas study. Traditionally, more than half the students in the program have spent all or part of the junior year studying abroad. Through the generous support of the Walt Robbins/Edward Hutton Overseas Study Scholarship, LAMP is able to offer significant financial aid to support our students’ overseas study. The LAMP curriculum will be adjusted to accommodate the student’s overseas study plans.

Introductory Public Relations Course Offered in First Summer Session

In the first summer session the School of Journalism will offer J321 Principles of Public Relations as a three-hour course, MWF, 1:10-3:40 p.m. in Ernie Pyle Hall. Many students who take this class use it as a way to explore whether public relations is a potential career option for them. The course provides an overview of the breadth of the profession, what it takes to be successful, how to be a responsible advocate, and how practitioners apply communications and problem-solving skills to public relations challenges. The students are usually a mix of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. There are no prerequisites for the course, so students from different disciplines will find it easy to enroll. I will be teaching the course and am happy to answer any questions.

IUSA Supreme Court Application Deadline Extended

Are you interested in seeing how the IU judicial system works? Thinking about applying to law school? Looking for your niche in student government?

If so, you may be interested in serving on the Student Body Supreme Court of Indiana University. The Court has extended the deadline for applications from all majors for Associate Justice positions for the 2008-2009 school year. Applications can be found online at www.indiana.edu/~court and are due Friday, March 28, at 5 pm via e-mail to court@indiana.edu. Please also feel free to contact the Court at this address if you have questions.

What is the Student Body Supreme Court?

The Court is the judicial branch of IUSA. We re-hear judicial board cases that have been appealed, acting as student representatives on 3-person hearing commissions each made up of two professors and a student. We also confirm the new IUSA executive administration each year and make decisions when IUSA campaign issues arise or if results of an election are ambiguous. We hold conferences with campus judicial boards to determine the consistency of sanctions and are also involved in editing the Student Code. Additionally, Court members serve on student advisory boards all over campus. The Court is unique in that its decisions have the potential to impact the entire Bloomington campus community. We welcome your application!

The Importance of Reciprocity in International Service-Learning: Stories of Equal Exchange

Interested students are invited to a special presentation by a visitor, Kate Combellick, PhD, from Fordham University, who organized international service-learning projects to Africa and India.

The Importance of Reciprocity in International Service-Learning: Stories of Equal Exchange. Thursday, 3/27, 5:30 PM at IMU Dogwood Room. Refreshments will be served at 5:30, with the presentation at 5:45. Discussion to follow, until 7 PM. All are welcome to attend.

[Sponsored by Leadership, Ethics, and Social Action program, the Department of Political Science, and the Hutton Honors College International Experiences Program.]

Ms. Combellick will be available to meet with interested students or staff on Friday, 3/28. Please arrange a time by contacting Joelene at lesa@indiana.edu, 812-856-1747.

----------------
Kate Combellick, PhD, Director of Service Learning, Fordham University
I would be interested in sharing how the international service learning program at Fordham's College of Business was constructed, telling stories about equalizing the exchange. Because the program began in Africa, it was particularly important to avoid the paradigm created by aid which often demeans and undercuts. Our international service learning program enhances small fair trade businesses, and increases profits. We have found a ready market on our campus so far. The language of focusing on a common task, selling Fair Trade goods, somewhat prevented the tendency of first world people to distance from those who are less privileged. I in essence underwent life-changing events myself before I began to think about how students would be involved. Having had 8 years of experience with the College of Business' service learning program in the Bronx, I saw that the international program breathed new life into the conventional scenario of semester-long volunteering, when too often the conclusion drawn by the student is: I'm glad it's not me! A spin-off from the international program has been a club to assist in the sales aspect of Fair Trade.
