Instructor: Lisa Urry

With the adoption of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), The US Mexico border region has increasingly come into the public spotlight.

The proposed course is designed to provide an immersive experience on the US/Mexican border, including travel in both countries, in-depth discussions with U.S., Mexican, and cross-border organizations, and interactions with local social activists.

ENG 180J
Radical Departures: Fin de Siecle Literature
Instructor: Rebekah Edwards
Schedule: Online Jan 2-11, in person meeting Friday, Jan 25 2-5 pm in Heller Rare Book Room

This class is interested in literary and artistic movements of the 1860's to 1900's in Paris, London, Berlin, and New York, San Francisco and Vienna. In its simplest definition, “fin de siècle” refers to the end of a century, yet at the end of the 19th century, the term did not just refer to a set of dates, but rather a whole set of artistic, moral, and social concerns. To describe something as a fin de siècle phenomenon invokes a sense of the old order ending and new, radical departures.

Core:  Critical Analysis and Creativity, Innovation, and Experimentation (pending)
