Space available in new seminar: HIV and Law (Law H529)

Still looking to add some credits for Spring quarter? Check out this new seminar, just added and with some space available for Honors students: 
HIV & Law (Law H529)
The period from 1982 to 2012 produced a remarkable resource mobilization in the United States in response to one illness, AIDS.  This course will examine the HIV/AIDS crisis in a number of different ways.  First, it will explore the early chaotic days of the epidemic to examine the responses to the disease in and about the gay community.  It will next explore how the disease was handled in early court decisions and legislative actions.  The course will examine how communities of color addressed the issues. The course will also focus on the criminalization of disease-transmission conduct, needle exchange programs, and how the prison system was ill-equipped for handling HIV/AIDS cases.  Lastly, the course will highlight some of the specific areas affected, including young persons and immigration issues, and then conclude with a summary of current issues.  
 
The class is two credits, and will meet on Wednesdays, 10:30-12:20, with one additional class on Friday, May 9.  This course is not eligible for any Honors credit, but is a great way to try out the Law School and learn about a fascinating topic.

GEOG 335 - Critical Development Geographies - Great Ad Hoc Candidate

GEOG 335 - Critical Development Geographies (SP 2014)

T/TH 7:00pm-9:20pm - SLN 20951 

Instructor: Amy Piedalue (amer@uw.edu)

This course focuses on how we might understand intensifying inequality across the globe through critical analyses of historical and contemporary processes of development.  Our focus will be on a critical reading of development theory – looking at the production of development discourses, and the interventions and policies enacted following their logics. For each school of development thought, we will pose questions about which development and whose development? Throughout the quarter, we will ask - what does a geographic approach contribute to understanding development processes?  And starting from development geography, we will pose the question “what’s missing in development theory?’ with a focus on the subjects, places and scales that have been excluded from particular theorizations of development. This approach will also make visible alternative visions of development that diverge from dominant models.

In this course we will explore not only historical and contemporary trends in development, but also consider the ways in which we are all connected to and through these processes. In this, we will analyze what’s at stake in understanding important contemporary issues and a variety of ways that we might engage with them. We will think through the challenges of producing development knowledge under ethical and responsible relations to people with whom we work.
