IS 390: Consulting Info Professionals
Yoo-Seong Song, Associate Professor, School of Information Sciences
Sung-Chul Bae, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea
This course is designed to provide practical and hands-on training by simulating consulting projects. Students will develop proficiencies in problem-solving, team management, storytelling, and professional communications. As they learn the theories and practices of consulting engagements, students will have opportunities to discover how their knowledge in information sciences can be applied to various types of consulting services. The transferrable skills acquired in this class are applicable to other workplace settings.
LAST 445-1 / QUEC 410: Beginning Quechua
Carlos Molina-Vital, Instructor, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
Gavina Cordova and Luis Mujica, Universidad Nacional Jose Maria Arguedas, Peru
Upon the consent of the Director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, tutorials are available in special native Latin American languages not regularly offered by the University (ie. Quechua, Kagchikel Mayan). Tutorials at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels may be arranged. Students registering for unit credit for the first two terms must first present satisfactory evidence of knowledge of the language at the elementary level, either in the form of credit earned at another institution or by passing a proficiency examination.
UP 160: Race, Social Justice, and Cities
Ken Salo, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Urban and Regional Planning
Ricardo Nascimento, UNILAB, Brazil and Greg Ruiters, University of the Western Cape, South Africa
Study of the history and politics of American cities as sites of everyday struggles against systemic racialized exclusions rooted in patterns of residential segregation. Frame everyday racial encounters as surface symptoms of submerged and systematic forms of racism rooted in centuries of genocide, land theft, racial slavery and decades of Jim Crow segregation and neoliberal exclusions. Explore everyday racial conflicts in selected cities as expressions of historical struggles for social and spatial justice, across multiple scales. Focus on the governance of routine social practices ranging from policing, to education, to gentrification and memorialization in public places. Final student projects will focus on social struggles against systemic and everyday racisms in a self-selected city of their choice.

The course will be of special interest to students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who study institutions and politics. The course will consist of a combination of four in-person meetings to facilitate discussion and interaction as well as synchronous online meetings to facilitate the participation of remote guests who are an important feature of the course. Students will prepare for meetings by reading topical materials about the EP as well as how social scientists study experts and their worlds. Discussions will explore the negotiation of issues such as human rights, the environment, public health, the economy, and foreign affairs in Europe.
