Autumn 2017: Perceptions of Nature in the Dense City

This Seminar on “Perceptions of Nature in the dense city” will focus on “practices integrating ecological systems in dense urban environments”.

Content: There is a current trend to design green environments and infrastructure in dense cities, which claim to be “Natural” or “representing Nature.” What is the “Nature” that designers and planners are referring to – and for what purpose? Is Nature a pristine condition in an untouched environment or can it be a hybridization of human and natural systems? How do such definitions and perceptions impact both professional approaches, and the public acceptance of new design idioms?

Through lectures, readings and discussions, this class will explore various perceptions and definitions of Nature associated with contemporary design processes and projects, especially in the context of climate change adaptation strategies. Independent research and case study will allow students to choose and investigate one particular aspect of these topics

Fall Seminar / 3 credits / LARCH 498K / 598K
Wednesdays 5:30 – 8:30pm / Gould 110

Spaces Available in JSIS 535

There are a few more spaces in the state section of JSIS 535, Technology, Society, and the Future. This is a course in the Masters of Arts in Applied International Studies that runs through A term.

JSIS 535 Technology, Society, and the Future (2)
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.

Future Foreign Service Officers: Rangel Fellowship opening in June

 

The time to apply for the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship program is this summer for rising seniors and those seeking to begin graduate study in Fall 2018. The fellowship provides up to $47,500 annually for two years. The application will likely open in mid-June and close in mid-September. I’ve included a brief summary of the fellowship including eligibility information below. Our office is open all summer and we are happy to talk with students about this fellowship and support their applications. You can read more about the program online at www.rangelprogram.org.

*As an additional note, UW’s own Hamda Yusuf (class of 2016) was named a 2016 Rangel Fellow and is set to begin her graduate studies this coming autumn. You’ll find her picture and can read a little bit about her study plans on our website at www.expd.uw.edu/scholarships.

*******

RANGEL GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP

· The Rangel Program plans awards approximately 30 fellowships of up to $47,500 annually towards tuition, room, board, books and mandatory fees for completion of two-year master’s degrees. At the conclusion of two years of study, the Rangel Fellow is expected to have obtained a degree in international affairs or another area of relevance to the work of the Foreign Service at a graduate or professional school approved by the Rangel Program. Awardees are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2 throughout their period of study.

Additional award benefits:

· Two summer internships (Capitol Hill and Overseas at U.S. Embassies): Fellows will participate in two internships. The first, an internship working on international issues for Members of Congress in Washington, D.C., will occur in the summer after being selected and before the first year of graduate study. The second will be an overseas internship in a U. S. Embassy that takes place during the summer between the first and second years of graduate study.

· Mentoring: Each Fellow will receive mentoring from a Foreign Service Officer throughout the duration of the fellowship as well as during his/her early employment at the State Department

ELIGIBILITY

· Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

· Applicants must be seeking admission to enter graduate school in the fall of 2018 for a two-year program at a U.S. university in an area of relevance to the Foreign Service. They can be in their senior year of their undergraduate studies, graduating by June 2018, or they can be college graduates.

· Applicants must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher on a 4.0 scale at the time of application.

ADVISING

· The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowship & Awards is open during the summer! Contact scholarq to set up an appointment. We’re happy to work via skype if you have travel plans this summer.

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.
