Introduction to Social Problems
David Sikkink
Credit Hours: 3

Analysis of selected problems in American society such as crime, narcotic addiction, alcoholism, delinquency, racial and ethnic conflict, prostitution, and others. Discussions, debates, films, tapes, and readings.

 

AFST 40075-01 / CSC 40409-01 / KSGA 30306-01 / IIPS 40409-01 / SUS 40409-01 (CBL/EL) 
Peace, Ecology and Integral Human Development
Emmanuel Katongole, Clemens Sedmack
Credit Hours: 3

A major source of conflict - increasingly so - is environmental issues; both climate change-related conflicts about (more and more scarce) resources as well as secondary conflicts (conflicts that arise because of the resource conflict, i.e. climate migrants) pose a major challenge to the planet. Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si has offered ways to think about an "integral ecology" that takes the environment, life on the planet, the human condition and culture seriously. The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor cannot be separated. Laudato Si has to be read against the background of the concept of "Integral Human Development." This concept, inspired by the works of Joseph Lebret, OP, has been introduced by Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Populorum Progressio (1967). It refers to "the development of the whole person and the development of all persons." The course explores the connection (intersectionality) between peace, (integral) ecology, and (integral human) development. It will do so with in-class room teaching sessions and a required one-week immersion over spring break in Uganda. The course will work with one particular case study, the "Bethany Land Institute" project in Uganda. To apply for this course, please send an expression of interest by email to both Prof. Katongole (ekatongo@nd.edu) and Prof. Sedmak (csedmak1@nd.edu) by November 11. Your email should include a 500-word statement about your motivation and expectations for participation, along with information about your majors and minors and how this course will contribute to your learning in those programs. The professors will select students for interviews based on their statements, and these interviews will determine the final group of students invited to register for the course.

 

AMERICAN STUDIES

AMST 30145-01, 02, 03 / ASIA 30145-01 / ILS 30145-01 (CBL/EL)
Immigrant America
Jennifer Huynh
Credit Hours: 3
This course offers a critical examination of what it means to be an immigrant or child of immigrants through scholarly works, memoirs, blogs, and popular journalism. Since the liberalization of immigration policy in 1965, immigrants from Latin America and Asia are becoming an increasing and emergent demographic of American society. In major American cities such as Los Angeles and New York, they comprise over 50% of the population. This course focuses on how immigrants and the children of immigrants experience the United States. How are immigrants changing the US racial and ethnic structure? How do their experiences differ given varying legal statuses? How is the second generation becoming American? We will explore these questions through readings that focus on family, religion, education, dating and sexuality. This course will include a community based learning component where students will work with immigrant serving organizations. Students will have the option to teach citizenship classes or to work with immigrant children. Service will be 2-3 hours per week outside of class.

Design Matters: Introduction to Design Thinking
Credit Hours: 3
Ann-Marie Conrado or Timothy Morton

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.

Global Migrations
Maurizio Albahan
Credit Hours: 3

How do people in immigrant-receiving countries shape their attitudes toward immigrants? What are the differences between refugees and other migrants? How is immigration related to urban "immigrant riots?" And what can anthropological studies of borders and national policies tell us about the transnational world in which we live? We will examine these and related questions, and more generally the causes, lived experiences, and consequences of migration. We will acquire a sound understanding of migration in its social, political, legal, and cultural facets. Fieldwork accounts from countries of origin and from the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Japan will enable us to appreciate both global and U.S. distinctive trends. Rather than merely learning a collection of facts about immigrants, we will address how migration intersects with gender and class, the mass media, border enforcement, racism, the economy, territory and identity formation, and religion.

ID: Collaborative Design Development
Timothy Morton
Credit Hours: 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.

Ethnographic Methods for Peace Research
Catherine Bolten
Credit Hours: 3

In this course, students will learn to use methods, insights, and techniques of ethnographic fieldwork in order to conduct research in conflict and post-conflict settings. We will investigate topics such as researcher identity and access in the field, research design, bias and ethical considerations, interview techniques, participant observation, writing fieldnotes, coding and analysis, and writing. This class is designed to prepare students for a field experience, therefore the course requires students to formulate and carry out a project in the local setting as the primary focus of learning.

How is immigration related to urban "immigrant riots?" And what can anthropological studies of borders and national policies tell us about the transnational world in which we live? We will examine these and related questions, and more generally the causes, lived experiences, and consequences of migration. We will acquire a sound understanding of migration in its social, political, legal, and cultural facets. Fieldwork accounts from countries of origin and from the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Japan will enable us to appreciate both global and U.S. distinctive trends. Rather than merely learning a collection of facts about immigrants, we will address how migration intersects with gender and class, the mass media, border enforcement, racism, the economy, territory and identity formation, and religion.

Design Matters: Introduction to Design Thinking
Ann-Marie Conrado or Timothy Morton
Credit Hours: 3

MATERIALS FEE. 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. Students will be able to apply this methodology to problems of a variety of disciplines from science and engineering to business and the liberal arts. The course is the gateway for the Collaborative Innovation minor.

VCD 8: Social Design
Neeta Verma
Credit Hours: 3

MATERIALS FEE. This advanced course in visual communication design is for students to understand social advocacy within the local (South Bend) context. Each semester new risk areas and deep rooted inequities within the local communities are explored. Students understand their role as designers/collaborators/catalysts through real life experiences working closely with members, groups, and organizations already deeply invested in the community. Students from diverse disciplines create a multi-disciplinary team that focuses on complex social problems that combines and delicately balances strategic thinking with innovation. Working as a group, students conduct research in the field, partner closely with local agencies to understand the system and based on this research and understanding of the inherent social ecology, build design approaches that address these multifarious problems. Projects in the past have ranged from addressing the Digital Divide in the City of South Bend to Mitigating Youth Violence in South Bend. DESN 20101 (VCD1) is recommended, but not required.

Ethical Leadership
Hugh Page
Credit Hours: 0 to 1

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 Entrepreneurship
Melissa Paulsen
Credit Hours: 3

Social Entrepreneurship has sparked dialogue and debate for two decades. Its very definition is much debated, as well as its capacity to create sustainable, scalable, systems-changing impact. This course explores the theoretical concepts, practices and strategies associated with the dynamic discipline of social enterprise and innovation. For our purposes, social entrepreneurship is the landscape, of which paradigm-shifting solutions like microfinance, MSME (Micro-Small-Medium Enterprise) development, bottom of the pyramid, fair trade, impact investing, and the like, are components. This course will study many of these concepts, focusing on their opportunity for social impact, and as a vehicle for wealth creation in vulnerable and disenfranchised communities across the globe. Further, the course covers examples of various social enterprise models (for-profit, non-profit, hybrid), requiring students to analyze and devise strategies to improve the efficacy of these ventures. Finally, the course engages students in research seeking to advance the field of social entrepreneurship at the Keough School of Global Affairs and Notre Dame.

Early Childhood Education Policy
Rachel Fulcher-Dawson
Credit Hours: 3

This course covers the various issues relevant to the current early childhood education landscape. This includes theories of early learning and child development, policy development in the United States, the issues of inequality and the achievement gap (particularly related to K-12 Education Reform) and research on interventions or "what works" in early childhood programming. The advantage to understanding the theories of child development, the policy context and the intervention research is that it gives future teachers and future policymakers a foundational premise upon which to grow, analyze, learn and teach. Topics covered will include: Theories of Child Development (Infant Schools to Present), Head Start and the CCDBG, State Preschool, Inequality and the Achievement Gap in the Early Years and Interventions in Early Childhood (HighScope/Perry Preschool, Abecedarian and Chicago Parent Studies, Head Start Research). The goal of this class is to come away with a greater understanding of the language, the history, the goals and the possibilities in this policy area as well as its connections to other social welfare programs and to K-12 schooling. Students will become more fluent in the language of early childhood education and will gain the foundational knowledge of past and current theories, laws, policies and educational interventions.

By what means might we assess the impact of such practices on learners, communities, and fields? How might knowledge of community engagement linked to disciplinary expertise be a faculty career catalyst? Such questions will be addressed through dialogue, experiential opportunities, and analyses in the context of each student's professional trajectory. Resources will be drawn from higher education literature, learning theory, ethics, and discipline-specific writings. Students will have an opportunity to reflect on their sense of public mission and career potentials. Open to doctoral and master's level students.

Students will watch films and read literary works by Mexican-American, Puerto Rican, Dominican-American and Cuban-American authors in order to gain a deeper understanding of how borders and borderlands inform contemporary discourse and culture. This course has a Community-Based Learning (CBL) requirement. Students are expected to sign up for tutoring at La Casa de Amistad once a week for 2 hours. The course will be taught in Spanish and is open to advanced non-majors .

Introduction to Social Problems
David Sikkink or Emmanel Cannady
Credit Hours: 3

The United States is beset by many serious social problems, such as 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? Sociology offers concepts, theories, and empirical research useful for understanding and addressing important problems in society. This course illuminates key social problems by introducing basic sociological concepts, theories and research, and applying them to specific problems, such as poverty and economic inequality, racial segregation, gender and educational inequality, and the decline of social capital. 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 developing their critical analysis of key social problems.

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.

Social Concerns Seminar: Border Immersion
Kraig Beyerlein
Credit Hours: 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.

Sociology Internship
Mim Thomas
Credit Hours: 1 to 3

The Sociology Internship[ is a community-based learning course designed to give students some practical experience in the area of urban affairs, social welfare, education, health care, or business, in order to test their interest, complement their academic work, or acquire work experience preparatory to future careers. Students are placed in a community agency in the South Bend area and normally work seven hours per week as interns under the supervision of an experienced practitioner. Scheduling hours is a flexible process in order to accommodate the intern's availability and the needs of the host agency. While there are no prerequisites, preference is given to Sociology majors, ALPP or SCPP majors, PSIM minors, and students who have had course work in an area related to social concerns. This is a graded course. In addition to field work, academic work includes reading scholarly works related to the field placement, periodic group meetings with the instructor and others in the course, periodic short reports, and a final paper. Departmental approval is required. The following is a list of agencies that have accepted interns. Students may also request placement in an agency they find on their own (subject to approval by the instructor).

Bible, Black Church, Blues
Hugh Page
Credit Hours: 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.

Credit Hours: 3

Beyond financial prosperity and material gain, many people today speak about the hunger to find purpose and meaningful work that has lasting impact on society, culture, and the global community. We not only want to find lucrative employment but to discover a way of life that resonates with the deepest part of ourselves. When we experience a consistent flow between our life's energies and our daily tasks, we are the most alive, engaged and at peace. But how can we find a way to integrate our inner and outer lives? This course will help students clarify their deepest passions in life that facilitate personal formation and social transformation. At its core it will explore the process of self-awareness and self-development that lead ultimately to self-gift. Some of the major themes we will look at include: values, spirituality, discernment, identity, true self/false self, justice, flow, freedom, Catholic Social Teaching and mission.

Christian Ethics II
Neil Arner
Credit Hours: 3
Participants in this course will be equipped to analyze how contemporary theological reflection on ethical matters has been influenced by historical antecedents. To acquire this competence, you will examine key themes, figures, and movements pertaining to Christians ethics throughout the tumultuous period stretching from 1500 to 1900. You will attend to sixteenth-century enthusiasm for Reform, seventeenth- and eighteenth-century engagements with Reason, and nineteenth-century assertions of the Rights of all humans. You will practice interpreting this long historical trajectory not as an unmitigated decline into secularization but as a gradual pluralization of religious and moral outlooks. By considering how Christians employed particular "spiritualties" as vehicles for obedience to Jesus Christ in diverse historical contexts, this course will thus build upon--though without presupposing your prior enrollment in--the first "History of Christian Ethics" course. Several excursions outside the classroom will provide you special opportunities to explore how Notre Dame and the South Bend area were shaped by the historical currents that comprise the subject matter of this course.

Catholic Social Teaching
David Lantigua
Credit Hours: 3

This seminar provides an in-depth exploration of modern Catholic social teaching inaugurated by Pope Leo XIII's responses to the labor question and the challenge of political modernity. Our exploration of the Church's social teachings is organized thematically according to three moments: the preferential option for the poor (work and economic justice); the transcendent dignity of the human person (democracy and human rights); and integral ecology (technology and human development). In this way, we give due attention to its essentially evangelical character as a social ethic rather than a "best kept secret." Readings include relevant papal writings as well as the reception of the social encyclical tradition by theologians and ethicists addressing immigration, religious liberty, and the environment.

Social Entrepreneurship
Melissa Paulson
Credit Hours: 3

Social Entrepreneurship has sparked dialogue and debate for two decades. Its very definition is much debated, as well as its capacity to create sustainable, scalable, systems-changing impact. This course explores the theoretical concepts, practices and strategies associated with the dynamic discipline of social enterprise and innovation. For our purposes, social entrepreneurship is the landscape, of which paradigm-shifting solutions like microfinance, MSME (Micro-Small-Medium Enterprise) development, bottom of the pyramid, fair trade, impact investing, and the like, are components. This course will study many of these concepts, focusing on their opportunity for social impact, and as a vehicle for wealth creation in vulnerable and disenfranchised communities across the globe. Further, the course covers examples of various social enterprise models (for-profit, non-profit, hybrid), requiring students to analyze and devise strategies to improve the efficacy of these ventures. Finally, the course engages students in research seeking to advance the field of social entrepreneurship at the Keough School of Global Affairs and Notre Dame.

This course covers the various issues relevant to the current early childhood education landscape. This includes theories of early learning and child development, policy development in the United States, the issues of inequality and the achievement gap, and research on interventions or "what works" in early childhood programming. The advantage to understanding the theories of child development, the policy context and the intervention research is that it gives future teachers and future policymakers a foundational premise upon which to grow, analyze, learn and teach.

Peace, Ecology and Integral Human Development
Emmanuel Katongole, Clemens Sedmack
Credit Hours: 3

A major source of conflict - increasingly so - is environmental issues; both climate change-related conflicts about (more and more scarce) resources as well as secondary conflicts (conflicts that arise because of the resource conflict, i.e. climate migrants) pose a major challenge to the planet. Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si has offered ways to think about an "integral ecology" that takes the environment, life on the planet, the human condition and culture seriously. The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor cannot be separated. Laudato Si has to be read against the background of the concept of "Integral Human Development." This concept, inspired by the works of Joseph Lebret, OP, has been introduced by Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Populorum Progressio (1967). It refers to "the development of the whole person and the development of all persons." The course explores the connection (intersectionality) between peace, (integral) ecology, and (integral human) development. It will do so with in-class room teaching sessions and a required one-week immersion over spring break in Uganda. The course will work with one particular case study, the "Bethany Land Institute" project in Uganda. To apply for this course, please send an expression of interest by email to both Prof. Katongole (ekatongo@nd.edu) and Prof. Sedmak (csedmak1@nd.edu) by November 11. Your email should include a 500-word statement about your motivation and expectations for participation, along with information about your majors and minors and how this course will contribute to your learning in those programs. The professors will select students for interviews based on their statements, and these interviews will determine the final group of students invited to register for the course.

A Tale of Two Projects
Jay Brockman, Harold, Toro Tulla, Danielle Wood
Credit Hours: 3

The central aim of the course is to explore the tensions between technical problem-solving and the public interest as we move into an increasingly technological future - e.g. Smart Cities. While this is in some ways the perennial broader question of how science integrates into society, we are focusing on issues particular to community planning and development as more and more tasks, from transportation to water management, are informed, if not controlled by nonhuman processes/algorithmic rules. For example, if we have 'smart sewers' and can control where the water goes during a flood, do we minimize property-value damage or the number of residences impacted? If climate change modeling indicates a new 30-year flood plain, do individuals have the right to not be moved out of harm's way? What are the moral and public interest questions embedded in this decision point? In doing so, we revisit this tension from the mid-20th century to set the stage and examine the interface of these issues in complex settings, including challenges with: defining the public interest, power and civic agency, measurement and data quality, objectives, variables, and constraints in optimization problems, and contextually/culturally situating 'optimal' solutions.Students examine community-based challenges through readings, case analysis, videos, site visits, and dialogue with faculty, community partners, and other students. Dialogue between the disciplines will be structured throughout the course to encourage deeper understanding of both analytical frameworks and assumptions brought to community-based challenges. The course will use local neighborhood community development efforts to illustrate challenges and critical factors in improvement efforts in the first two-thirds of the course, and it will culminate with a case analysis assignment for a very different neighborhood context (Puerto Rico) struggling with similar challenges.

It will run concurrently with a class at Notre Dame University Bangladesh (NDUB) and include a dialogue between students from both institutions. The course is divided into four parts. The first presents the central concepts and theoretical approaches used by scholars to analyze the relationship between religion and politics. It also introduces the three primary cases we will use for comparative analysis. We will look at a variety of religious activities, including those by the Congregation of Holy Cross, in each context. The second part of the course engages with some of the most challenging questions surrounding religion and politics faced by policymakers. These include the oftentimes contested connection between religion and the state, democracy, social movements, civil wars, development, and human rights. The third part of the course takes place during Spring Break. Students will travel to Oman to connect with their peers from NDUB. The Al Amana Centre will serve as the backdrop for this immersive, interactive learning experience that will include conversations about the thematic topics covered in Part II, along with visits to religious and cultural sites. The final part of the course asks students to reflect on policy options for addressing the persistent and pervasive role of religion in global politics. A central feature of the course is the cultural exchange between students at Notre Dame and NDUB. This will include video conferencing, an online forum, and the Spring Break trip to Oman. Enrolled students should be prepared to engage actively with their ND and NDUB peers, as well as be willing to occasionally meet outside of the scheduled course time to accommodate these activities.

Social Entrepreneurship
Melissa Paulsen
Credit Hours: 3

Social Entrepreneurship has sparked dialogue and debate for two decades. Its very definition is much debated, as well as its capacity to create sustainable, scalable, systems-changing impact. This course explores the theoretical concepts, practices and strategies associated with the dynamic discipline of social enterprise and innovation. For our purposes, social entrepreneurship is the landscape, of which paradigm-shifting solutions like microfinance, MSME (Micro-Small-Medium Enterprise) development, bottom of the pyramid, fair trade, impact investing, and the like, are components. This course will study many of these concepts, focusing on their opportunity for social impact, and as a vehicle for wealth creation in vulnerable and disenfranchised communities across the globe. Further, the course covers examples of various social enterprise models (for-profit, non-profit, hybrid), requiring students to analyze and devise strategies to improve the efficacy of these ventures. Finally, the course engages students in research seeking to advance the field of social entrepreneurship at the Keough School of Global Affairs and Notre Dame.

A Tale of Two Projects
Jay Brockman, Harold Toro Tulla, Danielle Wood
Credit Hours: 3

The central aim of the course is to explore the tensions between technical problem-solving and the public interest as we move into an increasingly technological future - e.g. Smart Cities. While this is in some ways the perennial broader question of how science integrates into society, we are focusing on issues particular to community planning and development as more and more tasks, from transportation to water management, are informed, if not controlled by nonhuman processes/algorithmic rules. For example, if we have 'smart sewers' and can control where the water goes during a flood, do we minimize property-value damage or the number of residences impacted? If climate change modeling indicates a new 30-year flood plain, do individuals have the right to not be moved out of harm's way? What are the moral and public interest questions embedded in this decision point? In doing so, we revisit this tension from the mid-20th century to set the stage and examine the interface of these issues in complex settings, including challenges with: defining the public interest, power and civic agency, measurement and data quality, objectives, variables, and constraints in optimization problems, and contextually/culturally situating 'optimal' solutions. Students examine community-based challenges through readings, case analysis, videos, site visits, and dialogue with faculty, community partners, and other students. Dialogue between the disciplines will be structured throughout the course to encourage deeper understanding of both analytical frameworks and assumptions brought to community-based challenges. The course will use local neighborhood community development efforts to illustrate challenges and critical factors in improvement efforts in the first two-thirds of the course, and it will culminate with a case analysis assignment for a very different neighborhood context (Puerto Rico) struggling with similar challenges.

Prison Writing
Sheila McCarthy, Michael Hebbeler, Susan Sharpe
Credit Hours: 3

What does it mean for an individual and a society to be free, and what does this freedom require? We will explore these fundamental questions of human existence through literature that portrays imprisonment and liberation. This course follows the Inside-Out model of prison exchange now well established across the United States. It provides an opportunity for "inside students" (at the Westville Correctional Facility) and "outside students" (from Notre Dame) to learn with and from each other and to break new ground together. Notre Dame students travel to Westville each week of the semester for dialogue with students at the facility, who have read the same relevant texts. Works include fiction and nonfiction, and the chains we encounter will be both figurative and literal. Of special focus will be the relationship between the individual and society, as students will reflect on their personal narratives within their respective communities and the broader social structures that bind us all. We will identify chains that hinder our freedom and chains that link us together as we seek to liberate ourselves and our communities.

Credit Hours: 3

This course offers a critical examination of what it means to be an immigrant or child of immigrants through scholarly works, memoirs, blogs, and popular journalism. Since the liberalization of immigration policy in 1965, immigrants from Latin America and Asia are becoming an increasing and emergent demographic of American society. In major American cities such as Los Angeles and New York, they comprise over 50% of the population. This course focuses on how immigrants and the children of immigrants experience the United States. How are immigrants changing the US racial and ethnic structure? How do their experiences differ given varying legal statuses? How is the second generation becoming American? We will explore these questions through readings that focus on family, religion, education, dating and sexuality. This course will include a community based learning component where students will work with immigrant serving organizations. Students will have the option to teach citizenship classes or to work with immigrant children. Service will be 2-3 hours per week outside of class.

Kraig Beyerlein
Credit Hours: 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.

Credit Hours: 4

What is a border? Who inhabits the borderlands? What function does the border play in the construction of a national or cultural identity? How do we bridge communities? How are borders represented, established, and challenged in the works of US Latino/a writers? These are some of the questions that this course will address within the context of US Latino/a literature and culture. Most of the course will focus on two geographical areas that we tend to associate with these concepts: the traditional US-Mexico border and the lesser studied Caribbean.

Social Entrepreneurship
Melissa Paulsen
Credit Hours: 3

Social Entrepreneurship has sparked dialogue and debate for two decades. Its very definition is much debated, as well as its capacity to create sustainable, scalable, systems-changing impact. This course explores the theoretical concepts, practices and strategies associated with the dynamic discipline of social enterprise and innovation. For our purposes, social entrepreneurship is the landscape, of which paradigm-shifting solutions like microfinance, MSME (Micro-Small-Medium Enterprise) development, bottom of the pyramid, fair trade, impact investing, and the like, are components. This course will study many of these concepts, focusing on their opportunity for social impact, and as a vehicle for wealth creation in vulnerable and disenfranchised communities across the globe. Further, the course covers examples of various social enterprise models (for-profit, non-profit, hybrid), requiring students to analyze and devise strategies to improve the efficacy of these ventures. Finally, the course engages students in research seeking to advance the field of social entrepreneurship at the Keough School of Global Affairs and Notre Dame.

Global Migrations
Maurizio Albahari
Credit Hours: 3

How do people in immigrant-receiving countries shape their attitudes toward immigrants? What are the differences between refugees and other migrants? How is immigration related to urban "immigrant riots?" And what can anthropological studies of borders and national policies tell us about the transnational world in which we live? We will examine these and related questions, and more generally the causes, lived experiences, and consequences of migration. We will acquire a sound understanding of migration in its social, political, legal, and cultural facets. Fieldwork accounts from countries of origin and from the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Japan will enable us to appreciate both global and U.S. distinctive trends. Rather than merely learning a collection of facts about immigrants, we will address how migration intersects with gender and class, the mass media, border enforcement, racism, the economy, territory and identity formation, and religion.

Holy Cross-roads
Jason Klocek
Credit Hours: 3

This course introduces students to major trends and debates in the study of religion and global politics with a particular focus on the United States, Bangladesh, and Oman. It will run concurrently with a class at Notre Dame University Bangladesh (NDUB) and include a dialogue between students from both institutions. The course is divided into four parts. The first presents the central concepts and theoretical approaches used by scholars to analyze the relationship between religion and politics. It also introduces the three primary cases we will use for comparative analysis. We will look at a variety of religious activities, including those by the Congregation of Holy Cross, in each context. The second part of the course engages with some of the most challenging questions surrounding religion and politics faced by policymakers. These include the oftentimes contested connection between religion and the state, democracy, social movements, civil wars, development, and human rights. The third part of the course takes place during Spring Break. Students will travel to Oman to connect with their peers from NDUB. The Al Amana Centre will serve as the backdrop for this immersive, interactive learning experience that will include conversations about the thematic topics covered in Part II, along with visits to religious and cultural sites. The final part of the course asks students to reflect on policy options for addressing the persistent and pervasive role of religion in global politics. A central feature of the course is the cultural exchange between students at Notre Dame and NDUB. This will include video conferencing, an online forum, and the Spring Break trip to Oman. Enrolled students should be prepared to engage actively with their ND and NDUB peers, as well as be willing to occasionally meet outside of the scheduled course time to accommodate these activities. Course enrollment is limited and requires instructor approval. Students enrolled in or considering academic programs in the Keough School will be given priority.

How is immigration related to urban "immigrant riots"? And what can anthropological studies of borders and national policies tell us about the transnational world in which we live? We will examine these and related questions, and more generally the causes, lived experiences, and consequences of migration. We will acquire a sound understanding of migration in its social, political, legal, and cultural facets. Fieldwork accounts from countries of origin and from the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan will enable us to appreciate both global and US distinctive trends. Rather than merely learning a collection of facts about immigrants, we will address how migration intersects with gender and class; the mass-media; border enforcement; racism; the economy; territory and identity formation, and religion.

Peace, Ecology, and Integral Human Development
Emmanuel Katongole, Clemens Sedmak
Credit Hours: 3
A major source of conflict - increasingly so - is environmental issues; both climate change-related conflicts about (more and more scarce) resources as well as secondary conflicts (conflicts that arise because of the resource conflict, i.e. climate migrants) pose a major challenge to the planet. Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si has offered ways to think about an "integral ecology" that takes the environment, life on the planet, the human condition and culture seriously. The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor cannot be separated. Laudato Si has to be read against the background of the concept of "Integral Human Development." This concept, inspired by the works of Joseph Lebret, OP, has been introduced by Pope Paul VI in his encyclical Populorum Progressio (1967). It refers to "the development of the whole person and the development of all persons." The course explores the connection (intersectionality) between peace, (integral) ecology, and (integral human) development. It will do so with in-class room teaching sessions and a required one-week immersion over spring break in Uganda. The course will work with one particular case study, the "Bethany Land Institute" project in Uganda. To apply for this course, please send an expression of interest by email to both Prof. Katongole (ekatongo@nd.edu) and Prof. Sedmak (csedmak1@nd.edu) by November 11. Your email should include a 500-word statement about your motivation and expectations for participation, along with information about your majors and minors and how this course will contribute to your learning in those programs. The professors will select students for interviews based on their statements, and these interviews will determine the final group of students invited to register for the course.

Ethnographic Methods for Peace Resolution
Catherine Bolten
Credit Hours: 3

In this course, students will learn to use methods, insights, and techniques of ethnographic fieldwork in order to conduct research in conflict and post-conflict settings. We will investigate topics such as researcher identity and access in the field, research design, bias and ethical considerations, interview techniques, participant observation, writing field notes, coding and analysis, and writing. This class is designed to prepare students for a field experience, therefore the course requires students to formulate and carry out a project in the local setting as the primary focus of learning.

Immigrant America
Jennifer Huynh
Credit Hours: 3

This course offers a critical examination of what it means to be an immigrant or child of immigrants through scholarly works, memoirs, blogs, and popular journalism. Since the liberalization of immigration policy in 1965, immigrants from Latin America and Asia are becoming an increasing and emergent demographic of American society. In major American cities such as Los Angeles and New York, they comprise over 50% of the population. This course focuses on how immigrants and the children of immigrants experience the United States. How are immigrants changing the US racial and ethnic structure? How do their experiences differ given varying legal statuses? How is the second generation becoming American? We will explore these questions through readings that focus on family, religion, education, dating and sexuality. This course will include a community based learning component where students will work with immigrant serving organizations. Students will have the option to teach citizenship classes or to work with immigrant children. Service will be 2-3 hours per week outside of class.

ARHI 34489-01 (CBL) 
London as Art Capital 
Lois Oliver, Gemma Bencini, Kendal Jones, Alice Tyrell
Credit Hours: 3

London is a capital of the contemporary art world, and the aim of this class will be to explore it. This course will examine those elements that factor into its current status in order to gain an understanding of what art is like now. We will look at contemporary art trends, especially as they are presented currently in spaces and exhibition venues across the city of London. For example, we will consider what types of media and artistic formats are viable now beyond the genres of painting and sculpture. We will look at recent experimental forays into photography, fiber arts, ceramics, site-specific installations, and digital media. Concentrating on current exhibitions and sites will allow us to consider recent global trends in artistic making as they relate to artistic showcasing. How does the site in which a work is shown affect our experience of the work? What elements go into the construction of an exhibition? What makes an exhibition effective or ineffective? Comparing the numerous and varied sites for art around London now will offer a unique approach to such questions. Weekly visits to various venues will visit include such spaces as The Hayward Gallery, The Serpentine Gallery, The Camden Art Center, The Saatchi Gallery, The Tate Modern, and Whitechapel Gallery.
