Honors Seminars for Fall 2019

HON 4950-002 | Hidden History
Barbara Mann
CRN 54694 | MW  12:55 pm - 2:15 pm | 3 credit hours | Memorial Field House 2230

Most Americans believe that “it can’t happen here,” so they are stunned to learn of what is now called “The American Holocaust.” More and more, long-obscured governmental documents being resurrected show that the “Indians” did not just “vanish” but were, in period terminology, deliberately “extirpated,” “wiped out,” and “annihilated” to “make room” for Euro-American settlers. This seminar critically surveys and analyzes modern literature and primary documents on the unnerving subject of The American Holocaust.

HON 4950-003 | Visual Literacy
Mysoon Rizk
CRN 52645 | W  1:30 pm - 4:15 pm | 3 credit hours | Center for Visual Arts 1050

This course introduces students to the concept of visual literacy and strategies for observing and analyzing the visual world. Students will learn to analyze images in an art museum setting as well as apply such strategies to visual information from a wide range of disciplines.

HON 4950-004 | Inside Out
Ashley Pryor
CRN 54696 | T  5:00 pm - 8:00 pm | 3 credit hours | MacKinnon Hall 1370

The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program facilitates dialogue and education across profound social differences. Inside-Out courses bring traditional college students and incarcerated students together in jails and prisons for semester-long learning. These courses ignite enthusiasm for learning, help students find their voice, and challenge students to consider what good citizenship requires. The course theme will be the nature and scope of human happiness. We will explore this theme by considering relevant works of philosophy, literature and art.
