Course content is derived from music

history as it relates to Kansas City in the 21st century through examining the ethics of creating the canon. Activities are drawn directly from music history to achieve understanding in Human Values and Ethical Reasoning as they relate to our community. Intro to Urban Studies UPD 101 URBAN ST 101 16243 16244 TR 1:00-2:15 0005: 17479: MWF 8:00-8:50 Introduction to Urban Studies is a lecture and discussion course that provides the undergraduate student with an overview of the interdisciplinary field of urban social science. The student who successfully completes this course will have a broad

understanding of the major issues,vocabulary, basic methods, and prominent scholars in urban studies. We will explore current events of relevance, including the opportunities and problems facing major cities in the United States including Kansas City.

create extraordinary value for society and themselves. Students will learn tools that will enable them to achieve a high degree of economic self-determination, as business owners or working within an existing enterprise. Students will analyze, interpret and/or reconstruct human events, experiences, actions and interactions through case studies that will help them understand the principles of value and civic duty in a wide range of settings. Students will be able to identify ethical problems in business, apply critical thinking concepts to better synthesize their understanding of ethical issues

and moral reasoning and be able to articulate implications and consequences that emerge from critical thinking constructs when filtering, analyzing and synthesizing multiple variables. The course will provide lecture topics that may include big data, marketing as well as both qualitative and quantitative data and how that data is presented in relationship to current issues. Intended outcomes are to give students the tools to further analyze core moral and ethical reasoning in order to be able to recognize and evaluate assumptions to further understand personal values and the values of others.

the complexity of the decision making process in guiding the implementation of technology. Based on economic, environmental, social, and diversity aspects, cultural and technical issues are balanced on both a qualitative and quantitative basis to make good decisions. Queer in the City UPD 268 URBAN ST 268 WGS 268 17228 17227 17229 MW 7:00- 8:15 PM 0006: 17489: TR 10:00-11:15 0007: 17490: TR 11:30-12:45 0008: 17491: (blended*) *section 0008 meets Jan. 21st; weeks Feb. 16th, Feb. 23, Mar. 30th (week 11 after Spring Break), weeks of April 20 and 27 (14&15) This course introduces queer theory

within the context of gender studies and urban studies. We will read, discuss, and react to classic text in queer theory, lesbian and gay studies, and sexuality and space studies. There will be an emphasis on finding "otherness" within everyday spaces, places, texts, and discourses. The Classical Mediterranean World (HONORS ONLY) ENGLISH 285 CLASSICS 285 HISTORY 220 16163 16162 16164 TR 1:00-2:15 0009: 17492: MWF 1:00-1:50 This course examines the history, literature, and culture of Ancient Greece and Rome in the context of the Mediterranean world, from its origin until the Barbarian invasion.

Students will read poetry, philosophy, history, rhetoric, and letters from primary text sources and they will study material evidence such as architecture, graffiti, and physical objects as representative survivals of these cultures. World Cultures, Hist & Ideas: Myths of the Spanish Conquest HISTORY 260 SPANISH 285 17424 17426 Online 0010: 17493: ALI: (online) 0011: 17494: (online) 0012: 17495: TR 10:00-11:15 0013: 17496: TR 11:30-12:45 0014: 17497: TR 10:00-11:15 0015: 17498: MW 4:00-5:15 The Conquest of the Americas has always been a point of controversy and acclaim. Worlds were upended.

Millions of people died through the cumulative impact of warring, labor practices, and disease. Empires were torn down and reconstructed. Christendom was vastly expanded. And, African slaves, tomatoes, potatoes, horses, cattle, pigs, corn, and syphilis traversed the Atlantic in an epoch of unprecedented ecological and cultural exchange. Modernity itself was forged in the crucible of Conquest. This course studies the societies of central Mexico, the Andes, and the Iberian Peninsula on the eve of their encounter, the ways in which each of these distinct societies impacted one another, and the

hybrid societies that emerged. We will study historical and literary works, images and films that have reimagined the Spanish conquest and addressed its complexities, myths and enduring legacies. Our examination of the historical and literary production from the 1970s serves as a basis for discussing past to contemporary ways of thinking as well as marginal to dominant realities.

With the collaboration of many other nations, the Nazis attempted a genocidal war to systematically colonize, relocate and

annihilate entire social groups. In this course we will study how attitudes about culture and diversity informed this genocidal war. To do so, we will adopt an integrative approach: combining history and literature, philosophy and theory, humanism and social science, reading and performance, analysis and creativity. This course takes an intentionally cosmopolitan look at these tragic events, though at the center of them necessarily stands the annihilation of the Jews.

The course will also look at the introduction of these religions in the United States and how this has created religious diversity in our country. We will have a historical overview of these traditions and study the roles that religious cosmologies, beliefs, ritual practices,

ethical values, the performative and visual arts, and understandings of human nature play in the lives of people. In a non-judgmental setting, students will gain an appreciation of the many ways that human beings have striven to live authentic and principled lives, while learning how to compare religions in a neutral fashion.

Hoffmann; Russian political satire by Nikolai Gogol and Mikhaul Bulgakov; films from Japan and eastern Europe; and the Freudian uncanny. Along the way, we will ask questions such as: How and why did this subgenre arise in the age of Enlightenment? What is modern and what is archaic about it? Is it a

popular or a high- culture mode? How do national boundaries and cultural differences affect literature of the Gothic and the Fantastic, and vice versa? How do media like prose fiction and film contribute to the occult imagination? Required course work will include regular attendance and participation, response papers, two essays, one group project/presentation, and a final exam.

perspectives. Urbanization has been a global phenomenon, and more than half of the world population lives in urban areas. Students will learn past, present and future urban issues and challenges on the global scale and about how cities of the world have coped and will cope with these issues and challenges. Diversity in Health ANCH 299 Special Topics 17449 TR 1:00-2:15 0035: 17518: MWF 2:00-2:50 This course will explore social determinants of health, i.e. how social, cultural, political,

Students will examine diversity by exploring health inequities related to race and ethnicity, immigration status, disabilities, gender, access, poverty, sexual identity, and

veteran status. The course includes experiential learning with organizations focused on reducing health disparities.

revealed by archaeological research, but the human past was frequently shaped as well by disasters of natural and human origin.

This interdisciplinary class will interrogate this question by surveying the history of public urban education, by considering contemporary educational issues, and by sending students into public urban schools to make their own observations and recommendations. We will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, with no class on Fridays

so that students can work at least twelve hours during the semester at designated Kansas City schools. This class will be closely connected to the associated Discourse 300 class. Open to members of the Honors Program or students with a 28+ ACT score and 3.5 cumulative GPA.
