Fall 2020 Community-Engaged Courses

COMMUNITY-ENGAGED COURSES 

The Center for Social Concerns recognizes the following types of community-engaged courses:

Community-Based Research (CBR) engages students in investigating a question defined by a community organization. The organization then works with the instructor and students to conduct the research in a mutually beneficial way, addressing both the needs of the organization and the learning objectives of the course. The results of the study are shared fully with the organization so they can advance their mission and objectives. CBR can be done remotely through careful design and communication.

Community-Based Learning (CBL) courses are a collaboration between community partners and instructors who identify mutually beneficial opportunities for students to contribute regularly to the mission of the organization through job placements and/or project work that aligns with the learning goals of the course and the needs of the organization. CBL can be done remotely through careful design and communication.

Experiential Learning (EL) classes put students in direct contact with some aspect of the issues and/or skills being studied in their coursework, typically through site visits off campus. In this mode, students receive information from community experts who find value in educating students, but they do not actively participate in regular research, projects, or service. 

What's Missing? Identify a Community-Engaged Course

If you would like to recommend a community-engaged course be added to the Community-Engaged Course Guide, we can start that process for you. We recognize courses from every college and school, both undergraduate and graduate, and main campus as well as non-main campus. Please complete this form to begin the process of adding the ZCSC attribute. You can see a preview of the questions on the form here.

Race & Ethnicity in U.S.
Moreno, Marisel
Cr: 4

If something has become clear following the recent termination of Mexican-American studies courses by the Tucson Unified School District (AZ) is that race and ethnicity matter when considering the condition of Latinos/as in the US. In this course students will begin by examining the events related to the AZ law and will explore how these issues are played out in Latino literature and our local Latino community. Literature by Afro-Latina/o, Andean-Latina/o (and other Latinos of indigenous descent), and Asian-Latina/o authors will provide a lens through which to explore the racial and ethnic complexities that are erased by the umbrella term "Latino." Tutoring/mentoring at La Casa de Amistad will provide an opportunity for students to see the issues studied at work in the "real world," while also fostering stronger ties between Notre Dame and the South Bend community. For the Community-Based Learning segment of the course, students will spend two hours per week volunteering and will participate in a local immersion weekend. This course will be conducted in Spanish. Spanish heritage speakers are welcome.

Rethinking Crime and Justice
Butler, Pamela and Hebbeler, Michael
Cr: 3

This course begins with a study of the U.S. criminal legal system - its history, its goals, its effects, and how it is embedded in larger systems of power linked with race, gender, and economics. Our greater purpose, however, is to get at deeper concerns about violence, harm, and justice: what we want a justice system to accomplish, why punishment is at the center of our current system, and our own responsibility for that system that operates in our names. As part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, the course involves inside students (who are incarcerated at the Westville Correctional Facility in Westville, IN) and outside students (who are enrolled at Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross) learning with and from each other and breaking new ground together. Each week, campus students travel to Westville for class with the incarcerated students; all are responsible for the same reading and writing assignments, and all participate together in class activities and discussions. Together, we will examine myths and realities related to crime and punishment, explore the effects of the criminal legal system and its policies, and develop ideas for responding more effectively to violence and harm in our communities.

Design Matters: Intro to Design Thinking
Morton, Timothy or Conrado, Ann-Marie
Cr: 3

MATERIALS FEE. Traditionally, design has been used to connote the process by which the physical artifacts of the objects and communications around us come into being. But over the last decade, design has come more and more to describe not only the development of objects but the process by which one shapes the interactions and experiences of people with the systems, services and organizations around us. A deeply human-centered approach to problem solving, design thinking is centered around identifying and reframing complex problems, and solving them through a more creative, iterative and hands-on approach. This course will follow a series of overlapping modules that will introduce the student to the various steps employed in the design thinking process and becoming familiar with the tools and methodologies used. The course will feature a hybrid seminar format with lectures and case studies followed by hands-on exercises and practical applications of the theories in the form of team projects. At the conclusion of the course, students should be able to articulate the tenants of the design thinking process and apply those methodologies to problems of a variety of disciplines from science and engineering to business and the liberal arts. If there are no seats available, please contact the art department (art@nd.edu) and the instructor to indicate interest and to sign-up for the waitlist. The course is the gateway for the Collaborative Innovation minor. Only students enrolled or having completed the course may sign up for the minor. There are only limited seats for juniors and no seats available for seniors with special approval.

Visualizing Global Change
Kay, Tamara
Cr: 3

The goal of the course is to compare the processes by which social scientists and filmmakers/photographers engage in social documentation. Students explore how global social problems such as rural and urban poverty, race and gender inequalities, immigration, and violence are analyzed across the social sciences, and depicted in a variety of documentary film and photography genres. The course also explores the role that documentary photography and film play in promoting rights and advocating for social change, particularly in the realm of human rights and global inequality. It examines the history of documentary film and photography in relation to politics, and to the development of concerns across the social sciences with inequality and social justice. It also looks at how individual documentarians, non-profit organizations and social movements use film and photography to further their goals and causes, and issues of representation their choices raise. The course is also unique because it requires students to engage in the process of visual documentation themselves by incorporating an activity-based learning component. For their final project, students choose a human rights or social problem that concerns or interests them (and which they can document locally - no travel is required), prepare a documentary -exhibit- on the chosen topic (10-12 photographs), and write a 12-15 page paper analyzing how 2-3 social scientists construct and frame the given problem. Students also have the option to produce a short documentary film.

Barn Stories
Kuijt, Ian and Donaruma, William
Cr: 3

Visual Anthropology provides a powerful and engaging means of sharing historical and anthropological stories. This new course is based on the assumption that people think in terms of images, movement and sound and that film can be used to create powerful and important human narratives. This class is designed to train students in how to research, design, manage and produce short documentary film projects using both state of the art production equipment and accessible forms of media capture such as iPhones and GoPros. As a graduate/undergraduate elective, this course thematically focuses on understanding and documenting the historical, social, economic and personal stories centered on 19th through 20th century Indiana local barns, and placing these in a meaningful cultural and historical context. Students will work in teams of two to research an assigned farmstead, focusing on the barn as a material setting and documenting the past through the integration of historical research, oral history and digital video.Students will develop 2 minute videos for inclusion in a video book (as seen here https://islandplacesislandlives.com/) that touches on local history as well as a longer 8 minute video that explores the life, history and social context of the barn. The result will be a collaborative effort that creates a body of work by the class exploring local history and linking Anthropology with filmmaking to tell stories.

ID: Collaborative Design Development
Morton, Timothy
Cr: 3

This cross-disciplinary course will develop and harness useful innovation through an association of expertise from business/marketing, management entrepreneurship, chemistry, engineering, anthropology, graphic design, and industrial design. Collaborating teams of graduate and undergraduate students will engage several product development cycles, beginning with an identification of need or opportunity and concluding with comprehensive proof of concept, tests of function, specified manufacturing processes, and an appropriately resolved, aesthetically pleasing product or system. All collaborative team members will be engaged throughout the research and developmental process. Each participant will share in rotating leadership responsibilities, providing direction within their specific areas of expertise and in the context of a sequential course outline.

Discipleship: Loving Action
Pfeil, Margaret
Cr: 3

This course is designed for students who have completed a Summer Service Project Internship (SSLP or ISSLP) or Social Enterprise Microfinance Internship (SEMI). It affords students the opportunity to re-engage their immersion experiences. Students will employ tools of social analysis, theological reflection, and rhetoric relative to both topics such as hunger, homelessness, poverty, incarceration, and immigration, and themes such as freedom, solidarity, mimesis, power, and the preferential option for the poor. The goal of the course is to develop a theology of discipleship to which justice is integral, including considerations of worship, sustainability, social reconciliation and restorative justice.

Just Wage Research Seminar
Graff, Daniel and Sedmak, Clemens
Cr: 1

This research seminar enlists undergraduates in the interdisciplinary efforts of the Just Wage Initiative (JWI), a collaborative research and advocacy project of the Higgins Labor Program at the Center for Social Concerns. Students will undertake research in two ways: First, they will contribute to the JWI by locating resources, marshaling evidence, and writing short reports, potentially for public use on our website. These tasks are assigned by the instructor; second, they will undertake individual research projects stemming from their own intellectual interests but dovetailing with the broader JWI agenda, producing a short essay and making a presentation at semester's end. Here they will be mentored by the instructors, but they will drive that process. As this is a one-credit, letter-graded course, students will engage for roughly three hours per week throughout the semester, meeting every three weeks for 2.5 hours to discuss assigned readings, report on research progress, make presentations, and brainstorm future projects.

Social Entrepreneurship
Hurst, Charlice
Cr: 3

Social Entrepreneurship (formerly MicroVenturing I) explores the innovative concepts, practices and strategies associated with building, sustaining, and replicating social impact organizations in less developed countries (LDCs) and here in the United States. Many dynamic organizations are aspiring to a "double" or "triple bottom line" - beneficial human impact, environmental sustainability, and profitability. This course exposes students to a new and growing trend in leadership, venture creation, product design, and service delivery which uses the basic entrepreneurial template to transform the landscape of both for-profit and not-for-profit ventures. In addition, students will analyze various social enterprise business models, including microfinance, microenterprise development, bottom of the pyramid, etc., and will devise strategies and tactics to improve the efficacy of these ventures, as well as engage in research seeking to advance the field of social enterprise at Notre Dame.

Social Concerns Seminar: Border Immersion
Beyerlein, Kraig
Cr: 2

Spanning the fall and spring semester, this experiential-learning, Catholicism-Across-the-Disciplines-designation seminar about immigration issues-especially those related to the México-U.S. border-has three distinct parts. In the fall (two credits), we will meet in class to read and discuss social scientific research about such topics as why migrants leave their home countries, what they encounter and experience when attempting to cross the border, the responses of U.S.-based citizen groups to unauthorized border crossings, and the effectiveness of current U.S. enforcement policies. We also evaluate normatively these responses and policies, particularly from a Catholic perspective (but also other faith, non-religious perspectives).In early January, we will travel to the Southern Arizona borderlands for our weeklong immersion trip. During this trip, we will, among other things, observe Operation Streamline legal proceedings, attend a humanitarian aid training, tour a Border Patrol facility, visit the border wall and learn about its environmental impact, hear from Catholic and other faith leaders about their social justice work along the border, visit Arivaca and Nogales to experience everyday life in a border community, and participate in a Samaritans' humanitarian desert trip.After our trip, we will again meet in class for the spring semester (two credits) to process, reflect on, and expand our immersion experience, including discussing what a uniquely Catholic border policy would look like, strategies to raise awareness about what is going in Southern Arizona, and migration issues and responses to them in other parts of the world.

Rethinking Crime and Justice
Butler, Pamela and Hebbeler, Michael
Cr: 3

This course begins with a study of the U.S. criminal legal system - its history, its goals, its effects, and how it is embedded in larger systems of power linked with race, gender, and economics. Our greater purpose, however, is to get at deeper concerns about violence, harm, and justice: what we want a justice system to accomplish, why punishment is at the center of our current system, and our own responsibility for that system that operates in our names. As part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, the course involves inside students (who are incarcerated at the Westville Correctional Facility in Westville, IN) and outside students (who are enrolled at Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross) learning with and from each other and breaking new ground together. Each week, campus students travel to Westville for class with the incarcerated students; all are responsible for the same reading and writing assignments, and all participate together in class activities and discussions. Together, we will examine myths and realities related to crime and punishment, explore the effects of the criminal legal system and its policies, and develop ideas for responding more effectively to violence and harm in our communities.

This course introduces a sociological study of some of the serious social problems plaguing society. Among these are poverty and homelessness, racial disparities, gender injustice, gross educational inequalities, interpersonal violence, and difficulties faced by prisoners upon re-entry to society. This course will give students opportunities to practice good social science by comparing theories about the causes of social problems and possible solutions to (1) empirical evidence presented in important sociological studies and (2) evidence gleaned by students through their own community-based learning experiences. To gain this first-hand knowledge, students enrolled in this course must volunteer a minimum of 20 hours during the course of the semester in a South Bend community organization dealing with one or more of these social problems.

Students will read, synthesize, and discuss research evidence in the cognitive and developmental sciences, and apply it to improve education practice. The course will be organized around current controversies in teaching and learning, and students will apply the theory and evidence from the research literature to design better learning environments for learners in the community. Students will choose among several possible education-related, community-based learning opportunities, including but not limited to math tutoring and enrichment at a local public school, literacy tutoring at a local afterschool program, learning support and mentoring for adults hoping to earn their high school equivalency diploma, or design and teaching of parent education classes for a local non-profit organization that provides parent education and supervised family visitation for children who have been caught in the middle of custody disputes and/or are the victims of abuse and neglect. Note that some of the community sites we work with are not within walking distance of campus, so students may need to have a car or regular access to transportation for those sites, but we will work it out. Some sites already have a carpool. Access to a car can be arranged through the Center for Social Concerns. This seminar is offered only in the fall; however, students will be encouraged to continue their service during the spring semester through a 1-credit ESS service-learning option.

Visualizing Global Change
Kay, Tamara
Cr: 3

The goal of the course is to compare the processes by which social scientists and filmmakers/photographers engage in social documentation. Students explore how global social problems such as rural and urban poverty, race and gender inequalities, immigration, and violence are analyzed across the social sciences, and depicted in a variety of documentary film and photography genres. The course also explores the role that documentary photography and film play in promoting rights and advocating for social change, particularly in the realm of human rights and global inequality. It examines the history of documentary film and photography in relation to politics, and to the development of concerns across the social sciences with inequality and social justice. It also looks at how individual documentarians, non-profit organizations and social movements use film and photography to further their goals and causes, and issues of representation their choices raise.The course is also unique because it requires students to engage in the process of visual documentation themselves by incorporating an activity-based learning component. For their final project, students choose a human rights or social problem that concerns or interests them (and which they can document locally ? no travel is required), prepare a documentary "exhibit" on the chosen topic (10-12 photographs), and write a 12-15 page paper analyzing how 2-3 social scientists construct and frame the given problem. Students also have the option to produce a short documentary film.

This class is designed to train students in how to research, design, manage and produce short documentary film projects using both state of the art production equipment and accessible forms of media capture such as iPhones and GoPros. As a graduate/undergraduate elective, this course thematically focuses on understanding and documenting the historical, social, economic and personal stories centered on 19th through 20th century Indiana local barns, and placing these in a meaningful cultural and historical context. Students will work in teams of two to research an assigned farmstead, focusing on the barn as a material setting and documenting the past through the integration of historical research, oral history and digital video.Students will develop 2 minute videos for inclusion in a video book (as seen here https://islandplacesislandlives.com/) that touches on local history as well as a longer 8 minute video that explores the life, history and social context of the barn. The result will be a collaborative effort that creates a body of work by the class exploring local history and linking Anthropology with filmmaking to tell stories.

Today's society is beset by many serious social problems, for example, crime and deviance, drug abuse and addiction, domestic violence, hunger and poverty, and racial/ethnic discrimination. How do we think about these problems in ways that lead to helpful solutions? In what ways does one's own social background and role in society affect his/her views of these problems? In this course, students will learn to take a sociological perspective not only in examining the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of society's most troubling social problems, but also in taking a critical look at their own perceptions of the problems.

Design Matters: Intro to Design Thinking
Conrado, Ann-Marie or Morton, Timothy
Cr: 3

MATERIALS FEE. Traditionally, design has been used to connote the process by which the physical artifacts of the objects and communications around us come into being. But over the last decade, design has come more and more to describe not only the development of objects but the process by which one shapes the interactions and experiences of people with the systems, services and organizations around us. A deeply human-centered approach to problem solving, design thinking is centered around identifying and reframing complex problems, and solving them through a more creative, iterative and hands-on approach. This course will follow a series of overlapping modules that will introduce the student to the various steps employed in the design thinking process and becoming familiar with the tools and methodologies used. The course will feature a hybrid seminar format with lectures and case studies followed by hands-on exercises and practical applications of the theories in the form of team projects. At the conclusion of the course, students should be able to articulate the tenants of the design thinking process and apply those methodologies to problems of a variety of disciplines from science and engineering to business and the liberal arts. If there are no seats available, please contact the art department (art@nd.edu) and the instructor to indicate interest and to sign-up for the waitlist. The course is the gateway for the Collaborative Innovation minor. Only students enrolled or having completed the course may sign up for the minor.

International Development in Practice: What Works in Development
Reifenberg, Stephen
Cr: 3

This class aspires to develop relevant knowledge and practical skills for students interested in engaging in positive change in a complex world. In this course on international development, students will: 1) examine the processes that bring about individual and societal change in an international context;2) explore the roles, complexities, opportunities and constraints of development projects in areas such as poverty reduction, social development, health and education; and, 3) develop practical skills related to project design, planning, management, negotiations, communications, and the evaluation of international development projects. A central theme of the course is to understand what we have learned over the past decades from systematic research and from experience in the field about "what works." The course makes use of case studies and draws lessons from instructive stories of failure as well as inspirational stories of change. The course focuses significant attention on "bright spots" in development- specific interventions that have made meaningful contributions. The course aspires to help train students to think like creative, effective, and thoughtful development professionals. A central feature of the course will be the opportunity to work throughout the semester as a member of a "Development Advisory Team" directly with an international development organization client who has identified a specific problem or opportunity. Development clients for the class are organizations in Bangladesh, Chile, Haiti, and India, among others.

Rethinking Crime and Justice
Butler, Pamela  and Hebbeler, Michael
Cr: 3

This course begins with a study of the U.S. criminal legal system - its history, its goals, its effects, and how it is embedded in larger systems of power linked with race, gender, and economics. Our greater purpose, however, is to get at deeper concerns about violence, harm, and justice: what we want a justice system to accomplish, why punishment is at the center of our current system, and our own responsibility for that system that operates in our names. As part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, the course involves inside students (who are incarcerated at the Westville Correctional Facility in Westville, IN) and outside students (who are enrolled at Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross) learning with and from each other and breaking new ground together. Each week, campus students travel to Westville for class with the incarcerated students; all are responsible for the same reading and writing assignments, and all participate together in class activities and discussions. Together, we will examine myths and realities related to crime and punishment, explore the effects of the criminal legal system and its policies, and develop ideas for responding more effectively to violence and harm in our communities.

Cr: 4

If something has become clear following the recent termination of Mexican-American studies courses by the Tucson Unified School District (AZ) is that race and ethnicity matter when considering the condition of Latinos/as in the US. In this course students will begin by examining the events related to the AZ law and will explore how these issues are played out in Latino literature and our local Latino community. Literature by Afro-Latina/o, Andean-Latina/o (and other Latinos of indigenous descent), and Asian-Latina/o authors will provide a lens through which to explore the racial and ethnic complexities that are erased by the umbrella term "Latino." Tutoring/mentoring at La Casa de Amistad will provide an opportunity for students to see the issues studied at work in the "real world," while also fostering stronger ties between Notre Dame and the South Bend community. For the Community-Based Learning segment of the course, students will spend two hours per week volunteering and will participate in a local immersion weekend. This course will be conducted in Spanish. Spanish heritage speakers are welcome.This course can fulfill the Modern Latin-American area requirement.

Beyerlein, Kraig
Cr: 2

Spanning the fall and spring semester, this experiential-learning, Catholicism-Across-the-Disciplines-designation seminar about immigration issues-especially those related to the México-U.S. border-has three distinct parts. In the fall (two credits), we will meet in class to read and discuss social scientific research about such topics as why migrants leave their home countries, what they encounter and experience when attempting to cross the border, the responses of U.S.-based citizen groups to unauthorized border crossings, and the effectiveness of current U.S. enforcement policies. We also evaluate normatively these responses and policies, particularly from a Catholic perspective (but also other faith, non-religious perspectives).In early January, we will travel to the Southern Arizona borderlands for our week long immersion trip. During this trip, we will, among other things, observe Operation Streamline legal proceedings, attend a humanitarian aid training, tour a Border Patrol facility, visit the border wall and learn about its environmental impact, hear from Catholic and other faith leaders about their social justice work along the border, visit Arivaca and Nogales to experience everyday life in a border community, and participate in a Samaritans' humanitarian desert trip.After our trip, we will again meet in class for the spring semester (two credits) to process, reflect on, and expand our immersion experience, including discussing what a uniquely Catholic border policy would look like, strategies to raise awareness about what is going in Southern Arizona, and migration issues and responses to them in other parts of the world.

THEOLOGY

 

THEO20112-01, 02, 03, 04 / AFST20738 (CBL) 
Bible, Black Church, Blues
Page, Hugh
Cr: 3

This course will build on the groundwork established in the Foundations of Theology course by providing exposure to three theological matrices that have had a decided impact on the development of Africana (i.e., African and African Diasporan) identity and culture in the North American Diaspora. The first is the symbolic universe of Africana biblical hermeneutics. The second is the Black Church. The third is that uniquely African American musical form known as Blues. Students will be given an opportunity to explore: the cosmological, ontological, anthropological, soteriological, and Christological assertions animating each of these milieus; their historical and contemporary points of intersection; and the ways in which each has influenced the other. Particular attention will be directed toward understanding the history of reception, interpretation, and appropriation of the Christian Bible by peoples of African descent; the evolution of the Black Church and the distinctive contributions made by Africana Catholics to it; and the emergence of Blues music, artists, and performance spaces as non-ecclesial loci of protest and crucibles in which Africana spiritualities of resistance have been and continue to be forged. Students will leave the course with a deeper appreciation of four issues, the implications of which are far reaching for those within the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant branches of the larger Christian family. The first is how culture and context shape the ways in which people read and appropriate sacred writings. The second is the impact that culture, memory, hermeneutics, and identity have on spirituality and ecclesiology. The third is the role that poetry and other art forms play as media for theological speculation and construction. The fourth is the pivotal impact that enculturation has on theology, pastoral care, ministry, and ecumenism.The class will also introduce students to those essential sources - both primary and secondary - methodologies, core questions, and debates foundational for a theological assessment of these universes of theological discourse. It will also expose them to three interdisciplinary subfields that span and inform the disciplines of Theology and Africana Studies: (1) the history of Africana biblical interpretation in North America; (2) Black Church Studies; and (3) Blues Studies.

Developmental Neuroscience
Michael, Nancy
Cr: 3

This is an upper level seminar that is intended to provide a deep dive into the field of developmental neuroscience, while challenging you to apply complex developmental principles to real life situations. We begin our exploration of developmental principles in the adolescent brain, rooting the student as the primary stakeholder in the content. From the very beginning of the semester, you will be challenged to consider all of the events (genetic, environmental, etc.) that have created your brain. Through discussions based in primary literature, we will then work backward through sensitive and critical periods of early childhood brain development, finishing the semester with classical cellular and molecular developmental neuroscience. Through analysis and discussion of primary literature, regular writing assignments and a strong community based learning component, the work of this course emphasizes critical review of primary literature and translation of scientific principles to individuals outside of the neuroscience field. The semester long community-based learning component will culminate with a brain-health capstone presentation to your community partner organization. The capstone design aims to have you apply all of the skills you have practiced during the semester by creating an engaging developmental neuroscience activity that requires 1) analysis and synthesis of primary literature 2) translation of that primary literature to a non-science audience that distills the information in such a way that it 3) informs and 4) motivates positive behavioral change.

Students enroll in the course for the semester when they return to campus following their summer immersion, but the academic work of the three-credit course takes place before, during, and after student participation in the eight consecutive week summer immersion. The goals of the Neuroscience SSLP course are threefold: 1) Reflect on one's daily service experiences using assigned course readings drawn from neuroscience and from theology; 2) understand how neuroscientific concepts help to explain human behavior and how one's current state is affected by one's past experiences; 3) apply neuroscientific understanding to cultivate greater compassion in responding to individuals who exhibit non-typical behaviors. Coursework includes: four mandatory class sessions in April (large group class with all SSLP students 5-6:30 pm on April 9 or 10, April 16 or 17, and April 23 or 24; AND one additional small group class session with students in NSBH 3xxxx); weekly assigned readings; daily writing assignments throughout eight-week summer immersion; completion of SSLP Final Project and neuroscience essay, and participating in three follow-up class sessions on campus following the immersion at a time to be determined.

Social Concerns Seminar: Spirituality of Justice
Gustine, Adam
Cr: 1

The Center for Social Concerns and Campus Ministry have partnered together to offer a seminage that explores how justice is understood as an essential part of a Christian spiritual practice. Students will have the opportunity to travel to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas where they will discover, explore and engage with communities who have embodied their spiritual practices in their pursuit for peace and justice. Students will consider how Catholic Social Tradition and theology lead one to engage the work of justice. They will critically reflect on their faith and will be challenged to consider its implications amidst the gritty reality found in on the US and Mexican border. As part of this seminage, students will serve at the direction of Sr. Norma Pimentel with Catholic Relief Service, spend time with migrants and their families, in addition to volunteering at a variety of organizations that serve the migrant population.

Social Concerns Seminar: Indigenous Community
Collier, Brian and Newkirk, William
Cr: 1

American Indian communities have experienced the impact of colonialism since the start of European contact. This course looks to trace the relationship of that contact and the impact it has had on Native American communities and societies; in particular the Red Lake Ojibwe Nation. We will study how the communities interacted with each other, and how race plays a role in that interaction, as do notions of class and gender. Most importantly when working with Native communities is that it cannot be an extractive industry. Instead we need to make sure that Native people are not talked about, but rather that Native people are consulted with a great deal when we are learning about their history, community, and culture.To this end, this course will provide ample opportunities to learn from Native people both in class meetings and the immersion experience. Just as Native history is covered in the course, this class will have an equal focus on the modern Native experience and the current topics of education, sovereignty, and cultural identity. Recently, Native American experiences were addressed in the US bishops pastoral letter on racism "Open Wide Our Hearts". We will engage this letter as we also consider the complex role of Catholic education offered to Native communities, especially the one we will visit on Red Lake Nation.

During our in-class meetings in the fall, (approximately 1 hr. & 40 min. per week), we will discuss scholarly and journalistic accounts of why migrants leave their home countries, the struggles they face during the journey, how U.S. citizens are responding, and possible policy solutions. In the spring (for one credit), students will participate in an immersion trip to the Southern Arizona borderlands during the first week of January and in follow-up classroom meetings (approximately 50 min. per week) during the spring semester to process the immersion experience. During the immersion trip, we will observe Operation Streamline legal proceedings, be trained for and participate in humanitarian efforts, tour a Border Patrol and detention facility, visit the border wall and learn about its environmental impact, hear from faith leaders about their current and past border activism, and visit Nogales to experience everyday life in a border community. Throughout the course, particular focus will be given to the intersection of religion - especially Catholic Social Teachings and border and immigration issues. Enrollment is competitive. The 15 available spots will be chosen based on the application responses, with preference given to those submitting earliest.

Rethinking Crime and Justice
Butler, Pamela and Hebbeler, Michael
Cr: 3

This course begins with a study of the U.S. criminal legal system - its history, its goals, its effects, and how it is embedded in larger systems of power linked with race, gender, and economics. Our greater purpose, however, is to get at deeper concerns about violence, harm, and justice: what we want a justice system to accomplish, why punishment is at the center of our current system, and our own responsibility for that system that operates in our names. As part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, the course involves inside students (who are incarcerated at the Westville Correctional Facility in Westville, IN) and outside students (who are enrolled at Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross) learning with and from each other and breaking new ground together. Each week, campus students travel to Westville for class with the incarcerated students; all are responsible for the same reading and writing assignments, and all participate together in class activities and discussions. Together, we will examine myths and realities related to crime and punishment, explore the effects of the criminal legal system and its policies, and develop ideas for responding more effectively to violence and harm in our communities.

Ethical Leadership
Page, Hugh
Cr: V

This year-long required course for first-year merit scholars is a lecture and discussion series on the meaning of ethical leadership and the intellectual relationship between interdisciplinary scholarship and effective public service. Scholars develop critical thinking and public speaking skills as they reflect on some of the most pressing problems and challenges of our time. The specific topics chosen for discussion - civic engagement and renewal, wealth disparity, racism, incarceration, gender inequality, environmental degradation, children's rights, etc. - often have a local as well as a global dimension. Scholars are assigned selected readings in advance of each lecture and discussion session. Scholars are also encouraged to share with their peers articles and essays that they deem especially pertinent to the lecture topic(s). Ideas and views discussed in the lecture series are meant to serve as stimuli or points of departure for the service initiatives and research projects that merit scholars typically undertake during their four years in their programs. This public lecture and discussion series featuring distinguished guest speakers from the university, senior merit scholars, the broader academy, and the local community is one of the many ways in which Notre Dame encourages its undergraduate scholars to become interdisciplinary thinkers and collaborative leaders across their diverse fields of study. Part of the course will involve "public service immersion" trips to organizations in the local community to learn about civic engagement, research, and internship opportunities. The course concludes with a self-designed final creative project, in which the scholar integrates what has been learned about leadership over the course of the semester.

Social Concerns Seminar: Border Immersion
Beyerlein, Kraig
Cr: 2

Spanning the fall and spring semester, this experiential-learning, Catholicism-Across-the-Disciplines-designation seminar about immigration issues-especially those related to the México-U.S. border-has three distinct parts. In the fall (two credits), we will meet in class to read and discuss social scientific research about such topics as why migrants leave their home countries, what they encounter and experience when attempting to cross the border, the responses of U.S.-based citizen groups to unauthorized border crossings, and the effectiveness of current U.S. enforcement policies. We also evaluate normatively these responses and policies, particularly from a Catholic perspective (but also other faith, non-religious perspectives).In early January, we will travel to the Southern Arizona borderlands for our week long immersion trip. During this trip, we will, among other things, observe Operation Streamline legal proceedings, attend a humanitarian aid training, tour a Border Patrol facility, visit the border wall and learn about its environmental impact, hear from Catholic and other faith leaders about their social justice work along the border, visit Arivaca and Nogales to experience everyday life in a border community, and participate in a Samaritans' humanitarian desert trip.After our trip, we will again meet in class for the spring semester (two credits) to process, reflect on, and expand our immersion experience, including discussing what a uniquely Catholic border policy would look like, strategies to raise awareness about what is going in Southern Arizona, and migration issues and responses to them in other parts of the world.

As part of the national Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program, the course involves inside students (who are incarcerated at the Westville Correctional Facility in Westville, IN) and outside students (who are enrolled at Notre Dame, St. Mary’s, and Holy Cross) learning with and from each other and breaking new ground together. Each week, campus students travel to Westville for class with the incarcerated students; all are responsible for the same reading and writing assignments, and all participate together in class activities and discussions. Together, we will examine myths and realities related to crime and punishment, explore the effects of the criminal legal system and its policies, and develop ideas for responding more effectively to violence and harm in our communities.

Race & Ethnicity in U.S.
Moreno, Marisel
Cr: 4

If something has become clear following the recent termination of Mexican-American studies courses by the Tucson Unified School District (AZ) is that race and ethnicity matter when considering the condition of Latinos/as in the US. In this course students will begin by examining the events related to the AZ law and will explore how these issues are played out in Latino literature and our local Latino community. Literature by Afro-Latina/o, Andean-Latina/o (and other Latinos of indigenous descent), and Asian-Latina/o authors will provide a lens through which to explore the racial and ethnic complexities that are erased by the umbrella term "Latino." Tutoring/mentoring at La Casa de Amistad will provide an opportunity for students to see the issues studied at work in the "real world," while also fostering stronger ties between Notre Dame and the South Bend community. For the Community-Based Learning segment of the course, students will spend two hours per week volunteering and will participate in a local immersion weekend. This course will be conducted in Spanish. Spanish heritage speakers are welcome.

Visualizing Global Change
Kay, Tamara
Cr: 3

The goal of the course is to compare the processes by which social scientists and filmmakers/photographers engage in social documentation. Students explore how global social problems such as rural and urban poverty, race and gender inequalities, immigration, and violence are analyzed across the social sciences, and depicted in a variety of documentary film and photography genres. The course also explores the role that documentary photography and film play in promoting rights and advocating for social change, particularly in the realm of human rights and global inequality. It examines the history of documentary film and photography in relation to politics, and to the development of concerns across the social sciences with inequality and social justice. It also looks at how individual documentarians, non-profit organizations and social movements use film and photography to further their goals and causes, and issues of representation their choices raise.The course is also unique because it requires students to engage in the process of visual documentation themselves by incorporating an activity-based learning component. For their final project, students choose a human rights or social problem that concerns or interests them (and which they can document locally ? no travel is required), prepare a documentary "exhibit" on the chosen topic (10-12 photographs), and write a 12-15 page paper analyzing how 2-3 social scientists construct and frame the given problem. Students also have the option to produce a short documentary film.

International Development in Practice: What Works in Development
Reifenberg, Stephen
Cr: 3

This class aspires to develop relevant knowledge and practical skills for students interested in engaging in positive change in a complex world. In this course on international development, students will: 1) examine the processes that bring about individual and societal change in an international context; 2) explore the roles, complexities, opportunities and constraints of development projects in areas such as poverty reduction, social development, health and education; and, 3) develop practical skills related to project design, planning, management, negotiations, communications, and the evaluation of international development projects. A central theme of the course is to understand what have we learned over the past decades from systematic research and from experience in the field about "what works." The course makes use of cases studies and draws lessons from instructive stories of failure as well as inspirational stories of change. The course focuses significant attention on "bright spots" in development- specific interventions that have made meaningful contributions. The course aspires to help train students to think like creative, effective, and thoughtful development professionals. A central feature of the course will be the opportunity to work throughout the semester as a member of a "Development Advisory Team" directly with an international development organization client who has identified a specific problem or opportunity. Development clients for the class are organizations in Bangladesh, Chile, Haiti, and India, among others.

Introduction to Peace Studies
Springs, Jason or Lopez, George
Cr: 3

Armed conflict and state repression continue to occur across the globe, millions of people face overwhelming poverty, and systemic challenges like climate change imperil collective survival. Nevertheless, we have also witnessed the emergence of sophisticated civil society networks and social movements to address these challenges, as well as governmental and transnational institutions committed to promoting justice and peace at the local, national, regional and global levels. This course introduces students to the various ways scholars and activists define peace and the challenges faced in securing peace. It surveys: (1) the major causes of direct and structural violence; (2) various definitions of "peace" and the conditions under which it occurs and is sustained; and (3) the comparative success of various strategies such as building peace movements and promoting nonviolent social change.

Women of the Loire Valley
Menyard, Odette
Cr: 3

In this course, we will be researching the role and the image of women of the Loire Valley from the early Middle Ages to the 21st century. Attention will be given to the influence and/or active participation of some major figures in politics, religion, literary production and the arts. Our chronological survey will encompass "femmes fortes", « muses et favorites » , « femmes engagées , « salonières et épistolières », « féministes avant la lettre », and two contemporaries. A special place will be reserved for Jeanne d'Arc, viewed as a patriotic warrior, sorcerer, saint, laic saint and current emblem of the far-right political party in France. We will observe artistic representations of these figures (painting, sculpture, music, film), and read a selection of texts by them, or about them. While analyzing their achievements and failures, and the judgment of their peers and History, we will attempt to find a common denominator to answer the question: how did the expectations of and from the women evolve through the centuries? Some film screenings and on-site visits will be required. Assiduous preparation for class and active participation in discussions are expected. Requirements: one oral presentation, a 6-7 page research paper, a final examination. May replace Survey I or Survey II for French minors. Serves as an elective for French majors.
