***DXARTS 490A***Autumn 2017***Unique Course that might appeal to Arts, Music, Computer Science, HCDE, Informatics Majors

DXARTS 490A (Data-Driven Art) will be offered Autumn quarter 2017 and is open to non-DXARTS students. DXARTS 490A does not count as VLPA credit, but can be used as Elective credit (3 credits). The class is offered on Wednesdays from 11:30am-2:20pm, in 221 Raitt Hall.

Students will be introduced to making art using databases, audio-video corpses, remote cloud-based data and metadata. Students will consider the implications and possibilities of artists using such systems, looking at dynamic, algorithmic based approaches to composing with highly distributed collections of data. The course includes weekly discussions, lectures, and labs.

Thanks!

NEAR E 429: Islamic Mystical Literature

(5 credits)

Tuesday-Thursday 1:10-3:20

Condon Hall 141

SLN Number 12514

An overview of the development of mystical and spiritual literature in the Islamic world as it functions within the institutional structure of Sufism, with representative readings from principal Sufi authors and poets, including Rabi‘a al-‘Adawiyah (d. 801 C.E.),Mansur al-Hallaj (d. 922 C.E.), Nizami Ganjavi (d. 1209 C.E.), Farid al-Din ‘Attar (d, 1221 C.E.), and Jalal al-Din Rumi (d. 1273 C.E.). This quarter, the course will focus on Arabic and, to a lesser extent, Persian language and literature. Since this is a NE prefix course (not an ARAB or PERS course) we will only be reading texts in English translation.

Therefore, no knowledge of Arabic (or any other language except English) is required

AUT17- ESS307 Diversity Outreach

 

This course examines issues of diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), while also providing students with the opportunity to build on the knowledge by directly engaging in community efforts to promote and increase access to STEM for underserved students in the Pacific Northwest. The core of the course relies on the critical analysis of the relationship between science, diversity, and social justice. Students will also receive hands-on training in STEM lesson planning, interactive workshop design, and how to design culturally appropriate outreach activities.

This class will provide the opportunity for undergraduates to lead Earth and Space Sciences outreach in rural and underserved areas. Undergraduates will gain critical skills for increasing the interest and expertise of Earth and Space Sciences content for middle and high school students. Undergraduates will be exposed to and experience firsthand the barriers that underserved and underrepresented populations in the Northwest face prior to pursuing careers in STEM.

ESS307 is open to all students with an academic background in STEM. Prerequisites can be discussed in a case by case basis by contacting Isabel Carrera at micz@uw.edu.

ESS 420 AUT 2017 Course Flyer

Check out the course flyer for ESS 420: Introduction to GIS for the Earth Sciences!

Course Overview:
Earth surface phenomena generally do not occur in uniform patterns, but are instead
heterogeneously distributed across space. Hence, the ability to examine and analyze these spatial patterns is an incredibly useful tool for earth scientists – and one such analytic tool at our disposal is the use of geographic information systems (GIS). This hands-on computer lab and lecture course provides an introduction to the use of GIS in the earth sciences. We begin by covering the fundamentals of GIS, including the way spatial data are represented and stored, the software tools available (with a focus on ESRI ArcGIS), and many of the fundamental methods of analysis. This introduction also includes some of the theoretical aspects of GIS. The course covers these fundamentals through examples in the earth sciences and beyond, and then explores various earth science applications of GIS in greater depth. Topics include discussion of imported data for GIS analysis, introductions to analyses of topography and hydrologic flow, mapping and analysis, and a brief overview of other geomorphologic phenomena for which GIS can serve as a useful if not essential tool. For more information, contact Steven Walters, swalt826@uw.edu
Note: This course (or equivalent) is required for the 3-week field, 3-week GIS section of “ESS 400: Field Geology”

It’s worth noting that the Spring section of ESS 420 tends to fill up quickly (because many of our students need it as a prerequisite for field camp in Summer), so for students from other departments who’d like to take the course, we’d strongly encourage them to plan to take it in Autumn.

Friday Harbor Labs Research Apprenticeship Info Session

Friday Harbor Labs Autumn Course Information Session

Pelagic Ecosystem Function in the San Juan Archipelago (PEF) Research Apprenticeship

When: Tuesday, May 16 11:30-12:20
Where: Ocean Sciences Building (OSB) Rm. 425
RSVP: [RSVP LINK]

Explore the ‘PEF’ research apprenticeship with this 50 minute info-session on campus. Meet one of the three faculty Dr. Jan Newton of the UW Applied Physics Laboratory to learn more about what you will learn through a full quarter of undergraduate research, and find out how to apply.

What is the PEF Research Apprenticeship?

Now in its 14th year, this very successful apprenticeship, Pelagic Ecosystem Function (PEF), uses the natural laboratory of the waters in the San Juan Archipelago to investigate the workings of a unique pelagic (open water) ecosystem. Friday Harbor is an ideal place for pelagic ecosystem studies because here, inputs from oceanic realms and major river systems are mixed by powerful tidal currents, creating an oceanographically complex habitat that supports a diverse community of plankton, fishes, seabirds, and marine mammals.

  • Spend autumn quarter at Friday Harbor Labs immersed in a single, fifteen-credit research apprenticeship with a cohort of up to 12 other students.
  • Be mentored by three faculty with expertise in oceanography, aquatic and fishery sciences, and marine birds and mammals.
  • Apply for a Mary Gates Research Scholarship and earn up to $3,000 to support your tuition.

Read more about the PEF apprenticeship, and see examples of student work here

Explore the Marine Biology Minor!

Are you interested in studying marine biology at the University of Washington (UW)?
The UW currently offers a minor in marine biology. Students are encouraged to declare the marine biology minor during their freshmen or sophomore years and immediately join a community of researchers and students interested in marine organisms, ecosystems, and conservation. All marine biology minors participate in hands-on learning in tandem with their coursework through labs and field trips, research with faculty, and other exciting opportunities. The minor combines courses from Aquatic & Fishery Sciences, Oceanography, Biology, and our marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs.

To explore the minor:
– see all minor course requirements on the attached planning sheet. The minor can pair with any major.
– contact the Marine Bio adviser Joe Kobayashi at marbiol@uw.edu to schedule an advising appointment.
