3631 LACS-255-01 Exile from Nazi Germany 1.00 SEM Evelein,Johannes MW: 11:30AM-12:45PM TBA WEA2  
  Enrollment limited to 19
  In the 1930s, thousands of writers, scientists, filmmakers, philosophers, historians, musicians, architects, and artists were driven into exile by the Nazi regime. The majority of émigrés, many of whom were Jewish, settled in the United States and went on to make significant contributions to the country's intellectual and cultural life. The purpose of this course is threefold: to introduce the concept of exile; to study the particular circumstances and stories of exile from Nazi Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe; to become familiar with the accomplishments of exiles in the fields of literature, film, music, and culture studies. Special emphasis will be placed on the impact of German and Austrian filmmakers in Hollywood and on the stamp of exiles on the U.S. academic world.
3037 LACS-272-01 Mafia 1.00 LEC Alcorn,John MWF: 11:00AM-11:50AM TBA Y GLB2  
  Enrollment limited to 10
  In contemporary societies there is an intimate contest between two kinds of social order: The rule of law and criminal organization. A remarkable instance may be found in the workings and metamorphoses of the Mafia. From its origins in Sicily, an agrarian society on the periphery of Europe, the Mafia has acquired intercontinental dimensions and a grip on high politics and finance capital. This shadowy phenomenon has been approached and explained in very different ways by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It has also been the subject of literature and film. We shall discuss outstanding examples of each approach and treatment. The purposes of the course are to make sense of the Mafia, to explore a basic problem of social order and to compare the different styles of reasoning and representation that characterize the various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Course requirements: seminar reports, several short papers, and full attendance and participation. (Listed as both LACS 272 and ITAL 272.)
3591 LACS-284-01 Fantasy & Realism in Russ Lit 1.00 LEC Lahti,Katherine MF: 2:40PM-3:55PM TBA GLB2  
  Enrollment limited to 30
  All readings and discussion will be in English. Through the enduring traditions of fantasy and realism, Russian literature has probed human dilemmas and invited self-examination. We shall read these works as art and entertainment, and also for what they help us learn about ourselves. A disturbing world of the uncanny, populated by murderous doubles, human snakes, talking dogs, ghosts, and other diabolical creatures will open up to us and haunt our imaginations. As we consider the realist and fantastic streams, we shall ultimately ask the question: can we really define the difference between them? Authors to be read include Gogol, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, and others. This course will introduce the students to some of the greatest works in the Russian literary canon. (Listed as both LACS 233-36 and RUSS 233-01; and under the Russian and Eurasian Studies concentration of the International Studies Program.)

We will focus on two key areas of Arabic grammar: the root and pattern system, and complex sentence structure. Students will gain knowledge of grammatical aspects such as active and passive participles, geminate verbs, passive voice, circumstantial clauses, and nouns of place and time (to name a few) and learn more on idafas, broken plurals and superlatives and comparative forms.

  In contemporary societies there is an intimate contest between two kinds of social order: The rule of law and criminal organization. A remarkable instance may be found in the workings and metamorphoses of the Mafia. From its origins in Sicily, an agrarian society on the periphery of Europe, the Mafia has acquired intercontinental dimensions and a grip on high politics and finance capital. This shadowy phenomenon has been approached and explained in very different ways by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, economists, and political scientists. It has also been the subject of literature and film. We shall discuss outstanding examples of each approach and treatment. The purposes of the course are to make sense of the Mafia, to explore a basic problem of social order and to compare the different styles of reasoning and representation that characterize the various disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Course requirements: seminar reports, several short papers, and full attendance and participation. (Listed as both LACS 272 and ITAL 272.)

  Enrollment limited to 30
  All readings and discussion will be in English. Through the enduring traditions of fantasy and realism, Russian literature has probed human dilemmas and invited self-examination.

As we consider the realist and fantastic streams, we shall ultimately ask the question: can we really define the difference between them?
