Difficulty: **
Teachers: Benjamin Berman

"American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it.”—James Baldwin.

We will briefly review several controversial events and actions of the American government in the global arena, from the early conquest of Mexican territory in 1848 to the Iraq War in 2003 before discussing and debating several questions relating to these topics. Is the present state of the union more or less dark than past eras? Is the United States indeed the "land of the free and the home of the brave?" How can we address the country's past atrocities and crimes? And most importantly, how do we identify and bring an end to any that are being committed right now?
Warning: some disturbing photographs of war and violence will be viewed.

H611: The European Witch Craze: A historical look at the evolution of witchcraft
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Rachel Christ

Have you ever wondered why the Wicked Witch of the West's face is green? Why do witches fly on brooms and wear pointed hats? Why are black cats and cauldrons associated with witchcraft? In this course we will examine the history of witchcraft, from its most basic roots, through the European witch craze and the Inquisition's persecution of thousands of innocent lives, to the modern day understanding of witchcraft and the various hollywood adaptations that have led to our classical, stereotypical witch with her cat and her broom. We will look at the Salem Witch Trials to understand how this was not a phenomenon specific to Europe, but took place in America as well, and we will talk about what creates an environment conducive to a "witch hunt". This class will not be entirely lecture based, as we will play a few games and have discussions about the topics we are going to cover. This is not a history often examined in its entirety in textbooks or school's curriculum, but it is an incredibly important topic, and a very rich history, that deserves attention and comprehension, and through this class students will hopefully become a little more aware of the stereotypes around them, and how history becomes hollywood, and fact become legend

H595: Polarization - Why you aren't getting a fair shake
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Benjamin Roberts

In this course we will discuss Political Polarization in the United States.
What is Polarization, you asked conveniently timed?
(1) Ideological convergence of the political parties characterized by the tighter grouping of positioning on a scale of political leanings; (2) divergence between the median positioning of voters, representatives, and other party affiliates; and (3) the breakdown of government and administrations in basic function because of “gridlocked” politics.
When examining political polarization there must be a multifaceted approach to discover the potential underlying cause therein. We will examine the varied degrees to which political polarization might be conceptualized in hopes of clarifying the prevailing discussion.
In that exploration we will also take an in depth look at the US electoral system to show just how these polarizing factors play out in our politics.

"Education reform" has been a popular public policy issue for most of the 21s century.

S607: Climate Change and the Future of Human Civilization
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Danny Neuman

Enrico Fermi, famous physicist from the early 1900s, theorized that the reason why there are no signs of intelligent life out in the universe is because intelligent life is destined to destroy itself. From observing how other semi-intelligent animals behave, such as primates, and even our fellow humans, it becomes clear that we are far from perfect. We fight with eachother, we don't always cooperate to find solutions to problems, etc., and intelligent life might not be a concept that is destined to work out. Right now, human beings are facing a tipping point where we are going to find out whether or not we could actually continue our survival on planet earth. Climate change is both a problem caused by humans, and a problem that only we can solve. Scientists predict that if we do not solve this crisis by the year 2100, the planet earth may no longer be habitable for humans. How exactly are humans causing this problem? How does the science behind it work? Why, if it seems so obvious that something needs to be done, isn't anything being done? Can humans finally work together to prove that intelligent life is a concept that can exist?
