Comparative Urban Studies–US and Quebec/Canada: A Study Abroad Course

Instructors: Fritz Wagner and Regent Cabana

Credits: 3-6

Maximum Number of students: 15

When: Summer A Term, Larch 495A and URBDP 498C/598C

Audience: Students in the UW College of Built Environments (CBE), Canadian Studies, other departments in the university and departments at UW Tacoma and UW Bothell.

Course Description: Comparative research in urban studies has been a major development in the last decade but little has been done to provide US students with a comprehensive knowledge of Québec cities and how they compare with US cities.

The aim of the course is to introduce students to theoretical and methodological aspects of comparative urban research by providing on-site case studies of Québec cities.

The estimated cost of the trip for each student, including airfare, meals, lodging and ground transportation is $1,500. The course is open to Juniors and Seniors, as well as Graduate students, for three to six hours credits.

We will visit three Quebec cities – Montréal, Québec City and Ottawa, where a number of professors, government officials and other urban experts will give lectures and tours. The course will examine similarities and differences between U.S. and Québec cities. We will look more particularly at current urban issues confronting communities in Québec. We will study the physical layout of cities, urban design and urban growth, problems related to the environment, governmental institutions, as well as historical, social and cultural factors specific to Quebec cities.

Students will write a paper on a topic related to urban issues encountered in Québec. The course introduces the logic of comparative research in the social sciences and applies its theory and methodology to the study of Québec cities, as compared to US cities. Its multidisciplinary and comparative character develops the ability to interpret and understand urban changes, changing demographics and to analyze appropriate and sustainable strategies and policies to address urban problems in Québec and the US. Students will gain a better understanding of economic, political, social, and cultural differences between Québec and the US. The course will also help them better understand the diversity of the contemporary urban world in Québec and the US and the importance of the social-cultural factors specific to each region and city, in finding solutions to common urban problems. By the end of the course, students are expected to be conversant in cross-border urban issues in Québec and the US.

Requirements: Students are expected to keep a daily journal on the things they have seen and learned. In addition, a term paper is required that focuses on some aspect of comparison with a subject with the United States. The 6 credit term paper would be a longer version of the 3 credit paper. The topic should be discussed with the instructors.

Fish and Wildlife Ecology Seminar – Today (4/1/19) 3pm

Devin Johnson (Ph.D. Statistician NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Lab) will be presenting today (4/1/19) from 3-4pm in the Physics and Astronomy Tower, Room C520.

Title: Estimating resource selection from telemetry data: A case study on northern fur seals

Abstract:

After a brief tour of northern fur seal ecology and traditional resource selection models for telemetry data, we will examine a new approach based on modeling animal movements in a pixelated landscape. These discrete-space continuous time models allow inclusion of spatial habitat information in a way that does not depend on the rate of location acquisition. Therefore as telemetry devices improve, and locations are measured at finer time scales, the inference remains comparable. These models also allow spatial and temporal habitat covariates and temporally changing responses by the animal. One of the major benefits of the model is that the likelihood can be approximated with a Poisson likelihood, therefore, any GLM software can be used to fit the model, such as glm(…) or gam(…) in the R statistical environment. The methodology is demonstrated by analyzing the movements of 15 northern fur seal pups on their first migration with respect to surface winds, geostrophic currents, and sea surface temperature.

Devin Johnson has been a statistician at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Marine Mammal Laboratory since 2005 where he conducts research on statistical problems in ecology focused on animal movement, capture-recapture models, and Bayesian nonparametric methods. Devin completed his masters and PhD in statistics at Colorado State University and has worked as an assistant professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he completed his undergraduate degree.

SPRING 2019: America and East Asia in a Globalized World: Globalization, Nationalism, and Regionalism

 

America and East Asia in a Globalized World: Globalization, Nationalism, and Regionalism

JSIS 484 B /JSIS 584 A

Th 230-520 MGH 097

Professor Donald C. Hellmann

East Asia led by the continuing growth of China, will soon become the largest economic region in the world and, in due course, the Asian Century may succeed the American Century. Whatever the ultimate result, global affairs in the first half of the 21st century will focus on the challenges of evaluating Asian regionalism, integrating Asia into the world and the capacity and will of the United States to lead. The global political economy will be rapidly transformed by: 1) the digital revolution; 2) a dramatic shift in economic power; 3) new multilateral international institutions to mediate these changes; 4) new types of security threats, military cyber and economic; 5) a challenge to the U.S. and the universality of the democratic capitalist principles; and 6) developing a viable regional order with a hegemonic China; 7) erratic Trumpian nationalism.

The course discusses the historical forces that have given rise to these ideas globally and especially in East Asia and frames the questions facing this region in the increasingly inter-dependent but non-convergent 21st century world.

Graduate students will take a five to six page take home final and write a 12-15 page paper on a topic of their special interest, established in consultation with the professor.

Undergraduate grades will be primarily based on a take home final examination and two five-page papers on topics worked out with the professor. All students are expected to do the readings and participate in classroom discussions on the readings of the week elaborated by 30 minute lectures by the professor.

This course is open to all students.

Joint with JSIS A 494 B 
21128 B 5 TTh 330-520 MEB 245 Klapaki,Nektaria G.

The course explores the interplay between migration and multiculturalism in the modern and contemporary Mediterranean focusing on the experiences of the Greeks from the nineteenth century to the present. We examine immigrant communities of the Greek diaspora in different historical periods and multicultural settings: as part of Smyrna in late nineteenth-century Ottoman Empire and as part of Alexandria in twentieth-century Egypt. Conversely, we consider how the phenomenon of immigration to Greece from the early 1990s onwards has been impacting the previously homogenous, monocultural Greek society into an increasingly multicultural one.

UW SUMMER FIELD COURSE: Sustainable Water in a Wet Region. June 17 – July 7 (SUMMER A)

…because all water is connected

CEE 498C/ ESRM 490C Summer A – 5 credits

Intensive field learning course on the Olympic Peninsula and San Juan Islands

…it’s like study abroad, without the passport and jet lag.

EXPLORE: temperate rain forests, fens, and alpine lakes

VISIT: seashores and rivers critical to the water health of the Olympic Peninsula

TOUR: drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities

LEARN: about cultural views on expected impacts and plans for predicted changing weather patterns

INTERACT: with students from different majors, local experts, and tribal representatives

EXPERIENCE: living and being in the forest

CONNECT: Water from forest—river—use—reuse—ocean

Course Description:

The value of water is recognized world-wide. Even in wet regions, such as the Pacific Northwest, it is important to apply sustainable strategies that recognize the inter-connections among water resource, drinking water, and wastewater. It is additionally important to recognize that culture plays a large role in ensuring that decisions match the needs of local communities. This course will examine the intersection of the water engineering sectors and local decision-making, including water implications of climate change predictions for temperate rain forest and wet forest regions. The Pacific Northwest will be used as a learning "laboratory". Students will engage with water professionals and decision makers from public utilities, regional engineering firms, tribal nations, and local/regional government. The intersections among these groups and their view of the water sector will be examined at differing scales (state, city and small town) and from multiple cultural perspectives.

Activities include: visiting wastewater treatment plant, engaging with tribal leaders, eating foods with cultural and regional water importance, visiting tidal flats, rain forest hiking, rafting, and whale watching.

Sections are available for all majors; undergraduates and graduate students welcome.

Get all the work finished for the 5 credits course by July 7, and still have time for summer job/internships, or other summer courses.

Register through Summer Programs.

Course Activity Fee $1450 includes camping fees, dormitory fees, program transportation, program-related park and museum entrance fees, hiking trail fees, ferry’s whale watching, rafting, and tree canopy climb.

Deeply Divided Societies Course – Spring 2019 – still has space

This highly recommended Jackson School course still has space this Spring 2019.

Open to all students.

Counts as an elective for Asian Studies, European Studies and International studies majors or minors.

JSIS B 450 DEEPLY DIVIDED SOCIETIES (I&S)
15707 A 5 MW 430-620P ART 317 Chirot,Daniel

There are many ways in which a society may be deeply divided. Some divisions lead to civil wars, while others result in endless low level problems.

Four deeply divided societies will be studied: the United States, the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and Vietnam. In the first there is now no civil war, but there are very bitter political and cultural divisions, some of them still a legacy of America’s own civil war. In the others there have been or continue to be wars, but even when they have ended, deep divisions remain. In all the United States played a big role. We will see if any lessons about how to moderate divisions can be drawn from these cases, or why certain kinds of political actions can make things worse.
