    AFAS 304B – The Social Construction of Race: Blackness
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • In constructing this course, the recognition of Whiteness/Blackness is not solely a reactionary response to challenges from persons of color: it is also a reflection of the need to provide a narrative of Whiteness/Blackness that intends an understanding of the notion of Whiteness/Blackness as a racial category and the implications of this categorization and association. For example, naming Whiteness displaces it from the unmarked status that is itself an effect of dominance. Within the particular disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies, Whiteness, Blackness and Race have come to be earnest subjects of Study. Being White or Black in the 21st Century, however, is far from straightforward. It is riddled with ambiguity and marked by a general sense of racial angst as to what it means to be White or Black. This course will attempt to respond to the question: what does it mean to be Black/White in our global climate?

  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • The concept of "cool" in regards to music, fashion, and social  status grew popular fifties and sixties. Evidence of hipster slang is documented in Cab Calloways's "Hepster's Dictionary" in 1938. It is, according to linguistic anthropologist Robert L. Moore, the most popular slang term of approval in English. "Cool" more than a word. This course investigates the idea of "cool" in America and its musical relationship to urban culture through various genres of African-­American music. The rise to prominence of "cool" will be analyzed through and investigation of the music of Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, West Coast jazz, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Sugar Hill Gang, and Grandmaster Flash along with their music's effect on social mores, fashion, film, and literature.

  • In order to conceptualize the way gender and ethnicity has shaped women's lives in the public and private domain students will "hear" the voices of African American women in ethnography, history and literature as we discuss the Africana concepts of life, health, beauty and family. The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history. The self-expression and self-definition, expressed by African American women's voices have generated social and political changes in American history that have also impacted the dominant Euro-American culture of American society.

    AFAS 376 – Global Soccer
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This interdisciplinary course is about the emergence and growing notoriety of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and the rest of the planet. While the British invented "football" (as soccer is known around the world) and professional football, the French were key players in structuring it worldwide. Following in the steps of Pierre de Coubertin who revived the Olympic Games at the end of the 19th century, French compatriots Jules Rimet, Robert Guérin, Henri Delaunay, Jacques de Ryswick, Gabriel Hanot, Jacques Goddet, and Jacques Ferran were central figures in the creation of the most important soccer institutions as of today: Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1904, the FIFA World Cup Soccer in 1930, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) in 1954, the UEFA Coupe d'Europe des Clubs Champions Européens (Champions League) in 1955, and the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball Award) in 1956. The course provides a strong foundation in the history and development of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and as a worldwide global phenomenon through explorations in the following areas: cultural and global studies, philosophy, history, institutions, the arts, and language. The course presents several important themes that will allow us to understand the popularity and identification of the populations with soccer worldwide, as well as the human values it represents: olympism, pacifism, imperialism, colonialism, national identities, race, politics, gender, and globalization. Students will read and discuss some of the most important scholarly texts dealing with soccer.
