Latin America’s Contemporary Environmental Literature Last offered Fall “It is not by coincidence that our societies are both racist and anti-ecological,” wrote the Chilean sociologist Fernando Mires in his now-classic study, The Discourse of Nature. This tutorial explores works of contemporary literature that implicitly and explicitly link Latin America’s ongoing environmental crisis to the region’s long and multi-layered history of colonialism: Representing a wide variety of geographies, literary styles and ideological perspectives, these writers nevertheless converge in challenging us to consider the effects of environmental crisis within structures of power that are radically unequal at the local, national, and global levels; and to recognize that consciousness of environmental vulnerability can prompt new forms of inclusion and community as well as exclusion. Topics to be explored also include the role of indigenous cosmologies in contemporary environmental politics, the place of urban ecologies within the environmental imaginary, and the ongoing debates among academic critics and others regarding the scope and methodologies of ecocriticism as an approach to Latin American literature. Students have the option of tutorial in Spanish or in English; partners will be assigned accordingly. Each tutorial pair will meet with me for one hour during the week, during which time we will discuss a 5-page paper that one of the partners has submitted the night before. This adds up to a substantial amount of reading and writing for each student in the course, i. Paraguay, Present Last offered Fall Paraguay is at once the most “typical” of Latin American countries and the most enigmatic. With a predominantly Guarani-speaking population, enormous disparities of wealth and poverty, and a political tradition that favors authoritarian dictatorship, Paraguay is also celebrated, in certain circles, as the only Latin American nation that actually achieved economic and political independence when the other republics were fast becoming economic dependencies of Britain and the US in the 19th century.

To provide the finest possible liberal arts education.

History[ edit ] The rise of hookups, a form of casual sex , has been described by evolutionary biologist Justin Garcia and others as a “cultural revolution” that had its beginnings in the s. As a result, Garcia and other scholars argue that young adults are able to reproduce physiologically but are not psychologically or socially ready to ‘settle down’ and begin a family. Research on hookups is not seated within a singular disciplinary sphere; it sits at the crossroads of theoretical and empirical ideas drawn from a diverse range of fields, including psychology, anthropology, sociology, biology, medicine, and public health.
It is hard to make sense of the hookup culture with understanding why it exists in society and why individuals participate in the culture. Boodram, “hooking up is nothing more than settling; it is the microwaveable burrito of sex. The term’s definition can vary depending on the person or on the age group. It can range from acts that involve kissing, oral sex, or intercourse.
A hook up is an act that involves sexual intimacy, claimed by many to be a sexually liberating act. On the other hand, hook up culture is thought to be oppressive and monolithic, with intimacy only occurring within a specific context. Currier, she explores how the phrase “hooking up” conveys different meanings depending on whether a man or woman uses it when describing their sexual encounters; furthermore, Currier notes that men use “hooking up” to emphasize their masculinity and heterosexuality whereas women use the phrase to preserve their femininity by being strategically ambiguous in order to downplay their sexual desires.
Young women tend to be honest about their sexual encounters and experiences, while young men tend to lie more often about theirs. Another study shows that once a person has sex for their first time, it becomes less of an issue or big deal to future relationships or hook ups. During this study, it was shown that girls in high school do not care as much as boys do on having sex in a relationship.

Opt out or contact us anytime W. Keith Campbell, a professor at the University of Georgia , which is 57 percent female, put it this way: Women on gender-imbalanced campuses are paying a social price for success and, to a degree, are being victimized by men precisely because they have outperformed them, Professor Campbell said. In this way, some colleges mirror retirement communities, where women often find that the reward for outliving their husbands is competing with other widows for the attentions of the few surviving bachelors.
Since that is not her style, Ms. Deray said, she has still not had a long-term relationship in college. As a fashion merchandising major, she said, she can only hope the odds improve when she graduates and moves to New York. At colleges in big cities, women do have more options. She has tended to date older professionals in the city.
But in a classic college town, the social life is usually limited to fraternity parties, local bars or coffeehouses. And college men — not usually known for their debonair ways — can be particularly unmannerly when the numbers are in their favor.

Energy Dashboard Energy Dashboard — Click here to see real-time data These dials show the amount of energy that the campus is currently using — readings are updated every ten minutes. Central Systems Many buildings on campus — especially the large ones towards the geographic center — are heated and cooled using central systems like the central heating plant and central chiller. Smaller buildings, especially those on the outskirts of campus often have independent heating and cooling systems that are a lot like normal residential boilers and air conditioners only larger.
Central Heating Plant and Cogeneration The central heating plant provides steam for heat and hot water to many buildings on campus. It has the ability to burn either natural gas or heavy fuel oil, a thick liquid biproduct of gasoline refinement. Greenhouse gases and other emissions from heating the campus and generating electricity are much lower when a high percentage of natural gas is burned.
Cogeneration is the use of a primary energy source to produce more than one useful form of energy. More of the primary fuel is needed to generate the combined electricity and heat, as a higher pressure of steam is necessary to drive the generator than to heat the campus.

Debating Fatigue in the U. Truck Driving Industry Time and Society, Social theorists frequently claim that clock time—a cold, mechanical, and intensifying culture of This article interrogates this ” tyranny of clock time ” narrative through an in-depth examination of the fatigue debate in the U. I find that trucking regulators use clock time to encourage rest and recovery.
Drivers, meanwhile, are committed to process time in ways that encourage intensification and overwork. Process time culture involves its own forms of time discipline that are related to power, exploitation, and overwork in surprising ways. Yet even though the normative ends of the two time orientations are reversed in this case, I still find that clock time is tyrannical in a certain limited sense.

ANTH F Democracy and Citizenship in the Age of Multiculturalism Democracy and its particular implementation in the United States is regularly taken as an unconditional ideal for the rest of the world. In this class, we will analyze democracy as a culturally and historically specific form of social relations and meanings. We will carefully examine a broad range of phenomena that pertain to democracy–for instance, cultural notions of participation in public life in Post-Socialist Germany or categorization of citizens in contemporary India, attachment to homeland among migrant workers in Russia or transnational rhetoric of Chinese bloggers.
By so doing, we will study local meanings, circulating discourses, multiple contestations, and changing forms of power in regimes that are heralded as democratic. Our focus on citizenship broadly defined –i. We will discuss how men and women, the abled and the disabled, the migrants and the natives identify with their statuses and define their place in state structures.
Anthropological studies of citizenship and diversity of forms of belonging and identification in democratic states will enable us to understand cleavages of power inequality and conceptual predicaments of social fairness in the contemporary world. Ethnographic studies from around the world will be used to provide specific examples of the ability and failure of democratic regimes to govern their varied populations.

You have interest in a few other people, they have interest in a few other people, et cetera. Even when the arrows are two-way, they may be of different thickness, since people may well like each other in different degrees. When you get a two-way arrow, the greatest common interest denominator will generally drive the relationship. In the rare relationship, these arrows are roughly identical to begin with. More often, they will differ, but still be quite workable in some form, even if the greatest common denominator of hookup and marriage is hookup.
The long term high school relation will generally fail after one or two years.

If we make plans to meet again AKA a date the other guy really just wants to have sex, no matter what we have put on the agenda. I was waiting to get a haircut today and the guys waiting on either side of me at the salon were both going through hookup apps the entire time they were sitting there. Or, my favorite, preferred sexual position. I joined a sports league hoping to meet people in some other way. All we do after playing is go out and drink. Or go to a restaurant, where everyone is looking at hookup apps on their phones while we wait for the food.
But it seems no other gay men have the same desire for a relationship as I do. Is this just a D.
