Spring Course – Q SCI 210 Introduction to Environmental Modeling

Q SCI 210 A / ENVIR 210A Introduction to Environmental Modeling
Spring Quarter 2013 – Meets MTWF 1:30-2:20 – 4 Credits
Instructor: Danny Grűnbaum, School of Oceanography
Models and computer simulations are increasingly important in understanding environmental science, in designing solutions to problems in natural resource management and environmental monitoring, and in predicting future environments under changing climates.
This course is a chance to learn how to use and critically assess environmental models you will encounter in scientific literature, the popular press, and debates about public policy.

ENGL 347: Biographies of Women Scientists

ENGL 347: Biographies of Women Scientists 

MW 2:30-4:20
SLN 20381

The lack of a counter-part to the term “women scientists” in the course title suggests “scientists” is covertly gendered. But make no mistake–this course is not a feminist study of scientists or science. Rather, this course means to go beyond feminist theory even though it concerns writing about women scientists. The reading includes the biographies of the Polish physicist Marie Curie, American geneticist Barbara McClintock, British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin, as well as the memoir of the American (male) geneticist James Watson, in which he candidly describes the ways in which male scientists perceived and talked about their female colleagues in his time and milieu. 

AIS 475F: Zombies and Indians

Instructor: Chad Uran
TuTh 1:30 – 3:20
While zombies have existed at some level of reality for centuries, it was not until the 20th Century that zombies overran the global popular imagination. Because of their origins at the many points of collision between colonizer and colonized, zombies have always walked the uncertain spaces between binary “certainties” such as us and them, rich and poor, slave and master, and, of course, alive and dead.

GWSS 290 New Gender and Sport course for spring

Hello Everyone,
The Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies Department has an interesting new course for spring,
GWSS 290 Gender and Sport (M-F, 12:30-1:20, SLN#14400).
