Spaces open – JSIS 535: Society, Technology, and the Future

Space available in 2 credit, summer A-term JSIS 535: Society, Technology, and the Future, taught by James Bernard. This course explores the intersection of policy, technology and society. Technology is rapidly changing the way that humans interact with one another, markets are formed, and information is stored, shared and utilized. While technology has held and does hold great promise for being a force for both economic and social change, it also has the potential to be used in ways that threaten civil liberties, national security and data sovereignty. Private sector and civil society actors, government and military leaders, and regulators must work together to understand how new and emerging technologies will drive change across a wide range of sectors, and they must develop policies to ensure that technology is used to help improve and enrich the lives of those across the socioeconomic spectrum.

Summer class: Public Space, Public Life

 

UrbDP 498A / 598A

Summer full-term, 3 credits, T/Th, 10-11:50a

Open to all students
Instructor: Peter Dunn (ptdunn)

This class introduces students to the concept of public space, its role in the city’s social and political relations, and the tools for intervening in public spaces. How are public spaces democratic? How do people present themselves, view others, and interact in these spaces? What are the rules of behavior, and how are they enforced? Who belongs there? Is a mall or a coffee shop a public space? Does it matter if everyone is looking down at their screens? How can physical design or programmed activities change the character of public spaces? This class will explore these issues in two ways. First, we will use foundational readings and exemplary case studies as a basis for class discussions on how public spaces have been theorized, created, and studied. Second, we will use Seattle spaces as our own case studies for students to practice looking at, inhabiting, and intervening in public space for their own creative projects.

Research Apprenticeship – Fall Quarter Classes and Field Research at the UW Friday Harbor Labs

The Friday Harbor Laboratories are accepting applications for the Pelagic Ecosystem Function (PEF) research apprenticeship for Fall Quarter 2018.

Autumn Quarter: Sept. 26 – Dec. 7, 2018

Ocean 492 (15 credits)

http://courses.washington.edu/pelecofn/

https://fhl.uw.edu/courses/applying-for-an-fhl-course/

Now in its 15th year, this research apprenticeship, uses university research vessels to examine the patterns, interactions, and linkages between components of this complex marine ecosystem, to understand how oceanographic processes shape the spatial and temporal patterns of open water biological communities, including pelagic fishes. Our goal is to gather and analyze data to document ecosystem drivers and trends and to teach methods and provide training applicable to a career in marine science. The core of this program is an independent but integrated research project, which we will help you design and implement.

Our apprenticeship features formal instruction, independent fieldwork, and a collaborative learning environment. For the first two weeks, the instructors provide an overview of basic concepts and field and laboratory techniques. Throughout the rest of the quarter, we work together to examine spatial and temporal variability in the transitional
fall season related to physical and chemical oceanography, plankton, forage fish, and apex predators (birds and mammals). Working as part of a cooperative research team, you will have the opportunity to collect and analyze field and laboratory data. You will also learn statistical and analytic approaches to interpreting data, and gain valuable
experience in reporting your findings in a professional manner, through oral presentations and in a written scientific paper.

This apprenticeship is a unique opportunity to spend a quarter conducting meaningful field research in a stimulating but supportive environment. You will have the opportunity to learn from professional scientists and to work collaboratively with students from other institutions, teaching methods you have learned and facilitating peer-to-peer
learning. Your work, building on the findings of previous apprentices, will contribute to a valuable data set that will enable us to better characterize system dynamics, explore causal mechanisms, distinguish prevailing patterns and interactions, and monitor long-term changes in the region.

Enrollment limited to 12 apprentices. UW students earn “W” credits in this writing-intensive course.

Landscape Change in the Pacific Northwest

5 credits

Tim Billo, Program on the Environment (timbillo@uw.edu)

Enrollment limit: 5

Notes:

Field Wilderness backpacking trip to Olympic National Park July 7 – July 15, 2018

Course fee: In addition to regular UW tuition, students will pay a $215 course fee, which includes food on trip.

Students who are interested in this course should contact Professor Billo via email to find a time to meet and discuss their interest in the subject material and physical challenges of the course as well as confirm their availability for the dates of the backpacking trip. This course is entry code restricted, and entry codes will be given by Professor Billo.

Between 1895 and 2015, the Seattle area grew from 40,000 people to over 4.2 million. In the next 25 years, Seattle will grow by another 1.5 million. While it is debatable exactly how “wild” the landscape was prior to European settlement of the region, it is undeniable that now virtually every piece of accessible habitat in the lowlands of the Puget Trough has been severely impacted by humans at one time or another, in some cases irrevocably. It was by stroke of luck (due in part to the inaccessibility of the terrain in the early days), and a big dash of courage from some forward-thinking leaders around the turn of the 19th Century, that Olympic National Park and other areas like it were saved from the ax and/or development. In only 25 miles as the crow (or eagle) flies from Seattle, an international hub of high tech industry, one can begin a walk into the Olympic Mountains, a roadless area of over 1 million acres (approximately 1600 sq miles), not to mention similar areas in the Cascade Range. It is this short gradient from ultra-urban to “wilderness”, that makes the region such an appealing place to live, as well as a unique place to reflect on landscape change (past, present, and future), and ramifications of this change (namely, the loss of “wild” spaces) for society in the Anthropocene.

Course format is a 9-day wilderness backpacking trip in Olympic National Park. Activities on the trip include: 1) student-led discussion of student-chosen readings and themes of the course, 2) contemplation and journal writing on the value and management of “wilderness”, and 3) direct observation of the effects of climate change and fragmentation on species and ecosystems. Prior to the trip, there will be online reading and discussion assignments. After the trip, an essay on a topic of each students’ choosing and general written reflection in the form of a blog post, will be required. Readings will draw from some classic American nature writers, as well as other sources including psychology, ecology, history, philosophy, local writers, and perspectives on “wilderness” and outdoor recreation from native Americans and other marginalized groups.

Course fee (in addition to regular UW tuition) is $215. UW will supply group camping gear and transportation. Students should supply sleeping bag, ground pad, backpack, and clothing–UW has some equipment to loan if needed. Course is limited to 10 students. No prior camping/backpacking experience is required or expected, but students should expect
the trip to be physically challenging and should prepare for that challenge accordingly. The 9 day trip runs from a Saturday through to a Sunday, such that students working a summer job should only need to miss one 5-day work week.

More information on the course can be found here: https://timbillo.wordpress.com/2015/08/15/envir-495c-landscape-change-in-the-pacific-northwest-year-3/ or contact Tim Billo: timbillo@uw.edu

HONORS 220 B

Natural and Cultural History of the Pacific Northwest

5 credits

TH 8:30 – 1:30

Ursula Valdez, IAS uvaldez@uw.edu

Enrollment limit: 12

Students must attend at least one overnight field trip including days of the weekend in addition to class meetings.

This course aims to provide a hands-on introduction to the natural and cultural history of the Pacific Northwest through the study of contemporary and historical issues. Students will develop an understanding of the interconnected relationships between human and natural systems in the Pacific Northwest and its influence in the global context. This will be achieved through the discussion of place-based case studies about patterns in the use of resources and the resulting impacts on society, the environment, and the economy in local and global contexts. Course topics will include biodiversity, natural history and conservation, rural and urban resource use and approaches to sustainability, traditional use of resources among others. An emphasis will be placed on understanding past and contemporary socio-environmental challenges and solutions in the Pacific Northwest. Students will also explore various forms of relations between natural systems and human communities, such as with Native Americans, urbanites, rural communities, loggers, fisherman, and others.

In this course, students will develop an understanding of key ecological and social processes affecting Pacific Northwest ecosystems. In addition, students will gain a basic understanding of economically and ecologically important species and ecosystems found in the region. Class time will include occasional lectures from the instructor or guests, discussion of case studies and time will be mainly spent in local field trips. During field trips students will be conducting observations, data gathering and will be trained in basic fieldwork skills. Local field trips will be during class time, however, students will be required to go on at least of these overnight field trips: Olympic Peninsula to study PNW culture and forest/marine ecosystems (3-5 Aug-Early friday to late Sunday) and to San Juan Islands (Friday Harbor Labs) to observe Orca Whales and other marine ecosystems(10-11 Aug Friday-Sat).

The course will include the cumulative development of a project that uses scientific methods to approach a topic of interest.

Specific Course Goals:

– To gain an understanding of the history and complexity of natural and human systems and key socio-environmental relationships in the Pacific Northwest.
– To be exposed to the challenges and solutions to environmental, economic, and social relationships found in the Pacific Northwest in the local and global context.
– To develop a basic understanding of the natural history of the Pacific Northwest
– To apply the scientific method, gain analytical and professional skills, and to gain skills in data collection and field research.
– To improve the ability to synthesize and communicate information effectively to a diversity of audiences.
– To help students form an educated opinion on the issues discussed in class in ways that empowers them personally and as engaged participants in society.

Announcing – return of biology 100

The much sought-after biology 100 relating to drugs, neuroscience, abuse, legality, and addiction will return this summer. After trying the virtual version last summer, we return to a 75:25 face to face version this summer. With classes Tues – Fri (and Fridays that are often virtual) we feel your students will want to know about this NW, 5 credit class option!

Who does it best serve?

* students who are NON science oriented,
* students who want to learn how to reinvigorate their skeptically critical science identities, * students who are even a bit science phobic,
* students who want to understand the ways in which science informs their lives and intertwines with their options,
* and students who want to dig into their own health care decisions as matters of personal responsibility.

During its peak, Biology 100 (Drugs and the Human Body) was enrolling ~150 students EVERY quarter and there were 20-30 on the wait list. With its sequestration to summer quarter, the peer-to-peer network has not been as strong.
