Open Space in Spring CHID Courses

CHID 250B EXPLORING HUMAN AND NONHUMAN ANIMAL BODIES IN LITERATURE AND FILM – VLPA CREDIT

Interrogate the role of bodies (human & nonhuman) in society by examining literary and filmic works in which they feature prominently. Some questions we will investigate are: Whose bodies are subjugated and whose are elevated? Why do we prefer certain bodies to others and what kinds of choices do we make based on those preferences? Where do our bodies end and where do others begin? Who exerts power over human and nonhuman bodies and to what end?

CHID 250C THEORY SCHMEORY

This course will explore how to productively fail at translating across disciplines. We will explore creating new knowledges out of cross-disciplinary conversations to grasp how different theories have created ways of knowing out of interdisciplinary practices.

CHID 480A QUEERING DISABILITY STUDIES

This course aims to think through what it means to queer an interdisciplinary field of study, specifically disability studies. Disability is intricately bound to and co-created alongside sex, gender, and sexuality as a socially constructed norm.

CHID 480B THE LYRIC ESSAY – A CRITICAL WORKSHOP – WRITING CREDIT

This is a course in which we will read, critique and write lyric essays. The lyric essay is a hybrid form of writing that does not respect the boundaries of genre. It mixes facts with fancy, or put another way, fact with fiction. Thus, it is sometimes called creative non-fiction.

CHID 480G GEORGIAN CINEMA: FILMS OF RESISTANCE AND DESIRE – VLPA CREDIT

In this course, we will explore films from the Republic of Georgia, located on the Eastern shore of the Black Sea. Films will include early experimental works, classics from the soviet era, and those of the new generation of young, post-soviet directors.

 

2-credit focus groups facilitated by CHID students:

CHID 496E Present and Engaged: Staying Informed in a Time of Alternative Facts

This group is entirely focused on reading, watching, and engaging with the content of current journalism and doing comparative analysis of the reports made between news sources. Enrollment in this focus group will entail reading the New York Times daily as well as engaging with readings in the course material and watching independent news reported by Democracy Now!. Discussion will focus heavily around current events, both in the United States and internationally. We will explore topics around free speech, doxxing, fake news, and access to information, particularly how these topics intersect with civic engagement, higher education, and political discourse. We will also engage in with a variety of politically slanted sources to track reporting discrepancies. Participants will be encouraged to bring in their own resources.  

CHID 496C Seattle: Exploring the Layered City

Have you ever wanted to truly get to know a city? This endeavor will examine, in-depth, the diverse layers that make up Seattle, and the ways in which they overlap. More specifically, the discussion will cover the historical foundations of the city – in musical, philosophical, political, and social contexts – as well as the most recent transformations in industry (i.e. Amazon, Paul Allen’s $$, and gentrification), and an analysis of influential time periods, spaces, and people – such as Kurt Cobain in the 1990s, the WTO protests, Boeing, Bill Gates, and the Denny Regrade. Seattle – Portal to the Pacific.

CHID 496D The History of the New Age

‘New Age’ practices, a Westernized focus on spirituality over religion, has become exceedingly popular in modern times. However, these practices are anything but new. In this class, we will explore the history and social context of ‘new age’ practices including astrology, tarot cards, palm reading, mythology, oracles and seers, alchemy, and mediumship – as well as explore their revival in Western culture. In addition to weekly readings and discussion, each student will be able to choose a topic of their own to present on as a final project at the end of the quarter.

Arctic Lake Greenhouse Gas Student Position

Boreal and subarctic regions of the world are undergoing rapid warming and shifts in precipitation that are altering the structure and function of individual ecosystems and mobilizing massive stores of previously frozen, ancient terrestrial organic carbon into the hydrologic network. The implications that these effects have for the global carbon cycle, however, are poorly defined, since we do not know the quantity and fate of terrestrial carbon entering the aquatic network, nor how aquatic food webs respond to terrestrial carbon loading and other environmental changes. Our research program (working jointly with the U.S. Geological Survey and the broader NASA-ABoVE research program) aims to improve our understanding of the patterns and sensitivity of aquatic C cycling in these northern regions.

Project Description: The 1 undergraduate student selected to participate in this project will contribute by conducting laboratory-based research using a cutting edge, Picarro g2201-I isotopic analyzer to evaluate the greenhouse gas content and molecular composition of gasses extracted from an existing set of samples collected at a series of Alaskan lakes and streams. All work is to be conducted from March 27th – May 31st , 2017, at Bloedel Hall on the UW Seattle campus. Regular time commitments are required but can be coordinated around other obligations.

Otter Spotter

On Sunday September 11, 2016 Environmental Manager Chris Andersen was out at the Auburn Environmental Park in the Mill Creek area when he spotted a rare visitor. While checking on a beaver dam in the area, he heard rustling across the creek from where he stood. He got his camera out and started to record, when an otter showed itself and began to lope across the grass, take a quick glance in Chris’s direction, and plop into the water shortly after. It swam upstream for a bit, popped it’s head up to check on Chris once more, and continued on it’s way.

While it’s known that river otters call this area their home, it is rare to see one in the wild in action. It’s quite lucky to catch one on camera, so we would like to share this experience with you! Check out this short clip captured by Chris!
