Pass/Fail Deadline for First Summer Session

Wednesday, May 19th is the last day to sign up to take a first summer session class pass/fail.

If you are interested in taking a class pass/fail, please stop by my office (in the CMCL building at 800 E. 3rd Street, room 259) so we can complete the required paperwork.

Here is some information about the pass/fail option from the College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin ( “During the four years of their undergraduate program, students in good standing (not on probation) may enroll in a maximum of eight elective courses to be taken with a grade of P (Pass) or F (Fail). The Pass/Fail option is open for a maximum of two courses per academic year, including summer sessions. For the Pass/Fail option, the academic year is defined as beginning with the start of the fall semester and ending with the end of the second summer session. The course selected for Pass/Fail must be an elective (i.e., it cannot fulfill requirements other than the minimum 122 hours required for the degree, and the requirements for credit hours at the 300-400 level). It may not be used to satisfy any of the College of Arts and Sciences’ general education requirements, nor may it be counted as a part of the student’s concentration area, nor may it be counted toward completion of a minor or certificate program. The course or courses may be used to meet the requirement for courses at the 300-400 level.”

(TR, 11:15-12:35, FQ012A) David Lewis
This class we will examine the ways in which music is embedded in medical systems around topics as diverse as religious healing, drug use, end-of-life care, genocide, autism, and HIV/AIDS. Each case study will include perspectives from a number of fields, including, biomedicine, ethnomusicology, anthropology, Western musicology, public health, and music therapy. In addition, the case studies will take us as far away as Malawi and Malaysia, while also including music-making from within the United States. This class will examine these case studies against larger questions of efficacy in cross-cultural applications of musical therapies as well as the ways in which theoretical and disciplinary orientation affect the scope and aims of medical and musical research.

 GLLC-G220 (30097) Avon Ladies in the Amazon?: Gender in Economic Development Around the World ( 3 cr.) (S&H)
(TR, 2:30-3:45 pm, FQ012A) Jessica Chelekis
Did you know that there are Avon salespeople in Amazonian communities and African villages? Why would people who have no electricity buy make-up and perfume? In fact, economists, political scientists, sociologists and anthropologists have placed increasing importance on small and micro-businesses as engines of economic development and tools for women’s empowerment in developing countries. This course aims to teach students not only about economic anthropology, but how to apply this sub-discipline to real-world issues and public policy by focusing on a major trend around the world.

(MW, 2:30-3:45 pm, FQ 012B) Trent Engbers

 GLLC-G491 (30863) Study Abroad: When You Return (1 cr.) (1st 8 weeks)
(MW, 2:30-3:45 pm, FQ 012A) Trent Engbers
This first 8-week course provides students returning from overseas study with practical advice on how their international experiences can be utilized for future educational and professional pursuits. The class will focus on the completion of an individualized "overseas studies portfolio poster" that enables students to do two things: process the emotional, experiential, and academic dimensions of the program they participated in; and compile and create a portfolio document that can be used to support ongoing educational and professional pursuits. NOTE: Consent of Office of the Overseas Study required.

 GLLC-G321 (19166) Intelligence and National Security (3 cr.) (S&H)
(TR, 2:30-3:45 pm, FQ 012B) Gene Coyle

NOTE: The course is taught by a 30-year veteran of the CIA. Class meets with GLLC-G 321 (20483).

 GLLC-G210 (21874) Vampires in European and American Culture (3cr.) (A&H)
(TR, 1:00-2:15 pm, FQ012B) Jeff Holdeman
This course will examine how the vampire first manifested itself in European literature and how it "shape-shifted" its way into the entertainment (and commercial) media of today, through numerous and various readings of fictional, ethnographic, and scholarly works, the analysis of folklore materials, as well as the viewing of movies, television shows, and Internet sites. By the end of the course, students will be able to discuss the origins, classifications, functions, natures, and evolution of the vampire and what that can tell us about historical periods and our own contemporary cultures. Above class fulfils the Colleges Topic requirement and meets with HON-H203.

Fall 2010 Journalism course that is open to any major, any level. JOUR-J 460, Community Journalism

Here’s a fall class for your consideration…. No prerequisites are required and non-Journalism majors are welcome.

JOUR-J 460, 28006. Community Journalism
2010 Fall Semester
Prof. Mike Conway
Monday-Wednesday, 1:00p-2:15p
3 credits

This class is designed to allow you to study as well as participate in community journalism. This course will be split between hands-on radio news experience and a seminar-type format for the discussion of community (also known as civic or grassroots) journalism. You will be working at WFHB Radio, Indiana’s first community radio station, located here in Bloomington.

We will be discussing and researching many of the top issues facing Bloomington and the Monroe County area. You will learn a variety of news/media skills including reporting, producing, and writing.

The seminar part of the course will involve readings, discussions, and guest speakers discussing the role of grassroots journalism in an age of consolidation and corporate news.

WFHB is a volunteer operation, so you will get experience in a non-corporate news environment, but will also be using the latest digital technology in news gathering and presentation. WFHB presents a daily, half-hour local newscast as well as five separate hour-long public affairs programs, including programs targeting African-Americans, Gays and Lesbians, and the Hispanic community. WFHB is a leader in news podcasting, with its programs regularly being downloaded around the world.

Community Journalism is a service-learning course and was created with the support of a Lilly Endowment Scholarship of Engagement Grant. For more information, contact the instructor, Mike Conway, at
