Highlighting Academic Resources to make you more successful here!

Monday

Health Professions 101 -5pm in Career Center Conference Room, Dewey Hall

Are you considering a Career in Health Professions? Health Professions advising assists students as they develop their academic program and explore a career interest in the health professions. A successful applicant to a health professions graduate program demonstrates not only the proper academic preparation but also knowledge of their intended career. Being a “pre-med” or “pre-vet” etc. is an interest and not a program or major. UR acceptance rates for health professions graduate programs are consistently above the national average and our students prepare for their intended health professions programs in a great variety of ways. Thinking about taking a course over the summer? Wondering about academic requirements for specific fields? Interested in gaining clinical or research experience?

The MLC Undergraduate Council meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm-9pm in the Hartman Reading Room, Lattimore 401.

New courses:

FR 254/454: Camus and Sartre (Robert Doran)

This course compares the work of two of the most influential French authors of the twentieth century: Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre. We will analyze common themes and motifs in their work, including absurdity, existence, alienation, anguish, freedom, responsibility, and disgust. We will also explore how literature can embody philosophical concepts and how philosophy can benefit from literary examples. Works studied include The Stranger (Camus), The Plague (Camus), Nausea (Sartre) and No Exit (Sartre). Conducted in French.

FR 281/481: French Cinema: 1930–1960 (Robert Doran)

This course studies the golden age of French cinema. Organized around cinematic movements (poetic realism, film noir) and themes (war, existentialism, alienation), this course explores the work of some of the most important and influential directors (Renoir, Carné, Godard) in cinematic history. Films analyzed both in terms of their technical innovations as well as the social and cultural transformations of the period. Weekly screenings. Conducted in English.

GER 282/482: Fassbinder (Jennifer Creech)

Rainer Werner Fassbinder might be characterized as the most prolific, influential and controversial German filmmaker of the New German Cinema. Between 1966 and 1982, he directed over 40 films and received over twenty awards for screenwriting, film direction and film production. A true cineaste, Fassbinder was a fan of the most varied genres including film noir, melodrama, the western, science fiction and the avant-garde. As a filmmaker, he drew on these generic traditions and manipulated them in aesthetically and politically provocative ways, determined, like his New German Cinema contemporaries, to use the cinema as a site of historical re-vision and dissent. In this course, we will use genre theory and dramatic theory, in particular the theories of Artaud and Brecht, as well as Fassbinder's own writings to analyze his attempts to rouse the viewer out of passive consumption and demand a more reflective, politically engaged spectatorship.

SP 275/475: Marx and Freud in Latin America (Raúl Rodríguez-Hernández)

This course examines the ongoing influence of writings by Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud on Latin American intellectuals and societies. Key theoretical frameworks—class, inequality, power, social agency, psychoanalysis and subjectivity—have elicited a variety of responses anchored in specific Latin American cultural and historical circumstances.

We explore creative practices and cultural products from such encounters, ranging from short stories to novels, from plays to films, and from murals and public art to popular genres. We begin by reading foundational texts by Marx and Freud, then documents revealing how Latin America captured their imagination. Then we explore texts by writers such as Octavio Paz and José Carlos Mariátegui, Salvador Novo and Samuel Ramos, Ché Guevara and Leopoldo Zea (essays); by Sabina Berman (theater); by Pablo Neruda and Ernesto Cardenal, Roque Dalton and Claribel Alegría (poetry); by Julio Cortázar and Cristina Peri Rossi, José María Arguedas and José Revueltas (prose); and how the murals of Diego Rivera show the shift from revolutionary art to official culture. Films may include Entre Marx y una mujer desnudaRojo amanecerGuantanameraFresa y chocolate.

Course is taught in Spanish. Most readings in Spanish, some in English.

SP 292/492: Politics, Portraits, Public Spaces: The Power of Photography in Spain and Spanish America (Claudia Schaefer)

This course explores the rise and social influence of fixed images from the time of the Daguerreotype (1839) to modern digital media. It addresses topics such as the professionalization of photography, the rise and popularity of portrait studios, the collection of albums, the circulation of portable cartes de visite, official state photographs, documentary evidence (of both crime and revolution), and the creativity and fantasy of Photoshop, and the iconization of images across cultural borders. Photographs, both fictions of photography and documents on the art of the photograph, the role of women photographers, and the incorporation of photography in film are examined.

Readings include Walter Benjamin's "Short History of Photography," selections from The Photography Reader, material from Spanish and Spanish-American sources, archival photos, the work of contemporary photographers, and writings by Cortázar, Dalí, Lygia Fagundes Telles, and others.
