Introduction to Museum Studies

This introductory class in museum studies is a studio history class, in which you will be learning about museums by researching, doing, and creating. In Spring 2022 we have a unique opportunity to collaborate with the Historic Oakland Foundation and Serve, Learn, Sustain. Our exhibit will be about Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery, and we will consider Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion as we prepare our exhibit.

Postcolonial Ecofeminism

This course will enable you to become a more effective communicator in various modes, media, and genres by introducing you to diverse representations of postcolonial ecologies. In this course you will watch films and documentaries, read essays, graphic narratives, and short stories, and look at digital story maps to explore the plurality across media of rhetorical constructions of environmental justice. We will begin with analyzing what environmental justice looks like in the postcolonial condition.

Intergenerational Policy

How many of today's leaders and citizens remember the Constitution's Preamble mandate to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves AND our posterity"? Perhaps it's not possible to design such a balance: doing so requires an awareness of intergenerational ethics, an ability to build long-term benefits and costs into our current policy analyses, a realistic understanding of the capabilities of our social and political institutions, and knowledge about the cognitive limits of humans to perceive and plan for future decades.

Intro to Africa

"Intro to Africa" is a commitment to inclusive teaching using a diversity of materials and approaches to introduce students to various aspects of various nations in Africa. As its name suggest, "Intro to Africa" is broad in its goal. It is also interdisciplinary in its methodologies and lenses and welcomes a plurality of knowledge systems.

Urban Policy/Urban Development Policy

In this course, students will learn the policy implications of Complex Adaptive Systems, which is how cities function as a series of networks, institutions, and systems. The course brings together urban planning, municipal management, and policy, which have not typically functioned together. Each class will feature a lecture and readings based on the topic of the class, as well as a guest speaker leading efforts at the government, nonprofit, grassroots, and corporate levels.
