This course examines historical, critical and theoretical perspectives on the development of Black feminist theory/praxis. The course draws from the 19th century to the present, but focuses on the contemporary Black feminist intellectual tradition that achieved notoriety in the 1970s and initiated a global debate on Western and global feminisms. Central to the exploration is the analysis of the intersectional relationship between theory and practice, and of race, gender and class. The course concludes with the exploration of various expressions of contemporary Black feminist thought around the globe as a way of broadening our knowledge of feminist theory.

In nurturing architecture’s foundational principles of visual, material and conceptual experimentation, this course lays the foundation for subsequent studios, lifelong learning and curiosity for architectural design processes. It probes the material, organizational and spatial qualities of the ground, a shared horizontal territory inhabited by plants, people and buildings--one that is as much cultural as it is natural. Through iterative and analog processes, students integrate drawing and making to construct and reconstruct lines in the ground. Probing the physical and conceptual ground for natural or constructed patterns, students develop foundation-level design skills within the context of larger environmental and cultural discourses. Core studio materials are provided. Students are responsible for the purchase of additional supplies required for individual projects. Not open to students who have taken ARS 283.

“Sex” is often used to describe a suite of traits – such as gamete type, morphology, physiology and behavior – that are related to reproduction. These traits are not binary, and there is extensive diversity in sex and sexual reproduction among animals including humans. This seminar explores our current understanding of variation in sex, gonadal determination, reproductive physiology and sexual behavior in the natural world. The course creates a broader conceptualization of sex by integrating the evidence in primary research articles, reviews, books and essays by feminist and queer authors. Students complete an independent research project on a topic of their choice. Prerequisites: BIO 200, BIO 230 or BIO 232, or equivalent. Juniors and seniors only. Enrollment limited to 15.

When is disruption good? Who is responsible for ensuring that an innovation has a positive impact? Are these impacts shared equitably? How can bias be eliminated from algorithms, if they exist? What assurances can anyone make about the technology they develop? What are the limitations of professional ethics? This seminar examines the ethical implication (i.e., ethics, justice, political philosophy) of computing and automation. Participants explore how to design technology responsibly while contributing to progress and growth. Discussions include: intellectual property; privacy, security and freedom of information; automation; globalization; access to technology; artificial intelligence; mass society; and emerging issues. Designation: Systems. Prerequisite: CSC 210. Enrollment limited to 12. Juniors and seniors only. Instructor permission required.

Offered as CSC 328 and EGR 328. Previously EGR 390dc. Digital circuits are everywhere, from basic thermostat controls and stop light sequencers to smart phones, computers and even Mars Rovers! This course covers the basic building blocks for all electronics. Students investigate basic logic circuits, combinatorial logic and sequential logic with an introduction to the basic digital circuits such as encoders and multiplexers. The second part of the semester focuses on microprocessors, using the Arduino. Students build a variety of circuits with input (from a computer, or from the environment via sensors) and programmed output (LEDs, sound, data sent to a computer), in order to learn how information from our analog world can be converted into digital data. Prerequisites: CSC 110 or CSC 120, and either EGR 220 or CSC 231. Engineering majors and computer science majors only. Junior and seniors only. Enrollment limited to 12.
