Course Descriptions

POLT 10100-01, 02      U.S. POLITICS       SS LA 1b h 3 CREDITS INSTRUCTOR: Juan Arroyo, Muller 312, Ext. 4-3969 ENROLLMENT: 22 per section PREREQUISITES: None OBJECTIVES: Institutions, processes, and cultural/ideological roots of U.S. politics.  We begin by studying a framework of ideologies that will help us to understand the political-economic institutions that have evolved to reflect the conditions of U.S. society: Congress, the presidency, bureaucracy, judiciary, parties, interest groups, media, and the electoral process. Throughout, we will constantly ask: how democratic is this place? What are your criteria for measuring democracy? Analysis of specific policies, such as social security, abortion, the drinking age, health care, taxes, etc. STUDENTS: Open to all students. FORMAT AND STYLE: Discussion/lecture

 

POLT 10200-01  and 02-07     MEDIA AND POLITICS      SS LA

You must enroll in Section 01 (Lecture) as well as one discussion section (02-07)

3 CREDITS

INSTRUCTOR: Martin Brownstein, Muller 307, Ext. 43544.

ENROLLMENT: Lecture of 90 with 6 discussion sections of 15 students each

PREREQUISITE: None

OBJECTIVES: 1. To understand the symbiotic, mutually reinforcing nature of the relationship of governmental institutions and institutions of mass media.  2. To explore the myth of the adversary relationship between the press and the public order.  3. To see how issues of public policy are presented to mass audiences in terms of symbolic valence.  4. To comprehend the ways in which elections are influenced by media.  5. To explain the salient differences in method of news presentation by alternative media sources; to see how differing methods produce different outlooks. 6. To learn how governmental regulation of electronic media is qualitatively different from the forms of regulation imposed on print media; to understand the results of that difference.  7. To identify alternative forms of governmental regulation of public media in other nations.  8. To assess the relevance of this course material for the future of American democracy, for future prospects for citizen participation in public life, and for personal development; to ask "So What?"  9. To understand that political disputation and argument are integral to political education, that a wide variety of political beliefs is both legitimate and necessary for constructive public discourse, to know that everybody is biased, and properly so.  10. To reaffirm my sense that the study of politics is both intellectually rewarding--and great fun!

STUDENTS: Students from all disciplines at Ithaca College are encouraged to take this course.  Students from Communications are especially welcomed, as are students from Business and all Humanities and Sciences departments.  Seniors, juniors, sophomores and first-year students are all invited to apply for this course.  NOTE: This course does not meet any specific Politics Department distributional requirements.

FORMAT AND STYLE: Two lectures, and one discussion class per week, and student involvement is actively sought. This course will make extensive use of films and other video materials.

REQUIREMENTS: Course requirements include approximately five books, the daily reading of The New York Times, attention to at least one weekly periodical magazine of political opinion, and at least one daily television news program.  Three take-home papers are required, and these may be rewritten so that students may be afforded the chance to learn from their errors.  Most fundamentally, students are expected to bring interest and enthusiasm into this course.

GRADING: Traditional A, B, C, D, F grading will be used.

POLT 14100-01     POWER: RACE, SEX AND CLASS     SS LA

3 CREDITS

INSTRUCTOR:Zillah Eisenstein, Muller 316, Ext. 4-3554

ENROLLMENT:38

OBJECTIVES:We will deal with the distribution of power in the U.S. according to economic class, sex, and race hierarchies.  We discuss what power is, where it comes from, where it is located.  This involves the analysis of power in terms of issues of capitalism, globalism, patriarchy, and racism, as well as the specific issues they raise for policy making, persons, the family, and corporate power.  The analysis will hopefully help us understand the relations of power defining black working class women, white male workers, white middle class women, etc.  The premise of the course is that in order to understand capitalist society one must understand the racialized aspects of sexuality as a form of power, as well as the sexualized aspects of race.  Some specific topics discussed are: the changing aspects of the nation-state; Reagan/Clinton/Bush political discourses; the Gulf Wars 1991-2008; the Chilean 1973 Coup; the changing realities of the middle/working class; the global racialized sexual division of labor; the rise of China in the global market; the O.J. Simpson trial, and so on.

STUDENTS:Majors and non-majors alike.

REQUIREMENTS:Students will read a variety of books, write two 7-page analytical papers.

 

POLT 14200-01, 02     IDEAS AND IDEOLOGIES      SS LA 1a, 1b

3 CREDITS

INSTRUCTOR: Kelly Dietz, Muller 310, Ext. 4-3581

ENROLLMENT: 28 per section

OBJECTIVES: The course will explore the philosophical and ideological roots of political life and political inquiry. We will examine the historical context of major political ideas such as equality, freedom, authority, and justice. We will consider why certain ideas have endured, and why they remain critical to understanding politics today. The course will examine how key ideas relate to ideological perspectives on political life, such as liberalism, democracy, conservatism, imperialism, fascism, nationalism and anarchism. The course encourages critical reflection on aspects of political life that we take for granted. Encounters with political theories different from our own subjective views and experiences help bring to light our unconscious assumptions and also what is distinctive about our political views.

FORMAT AND STYLE: lecture and discussion

REQUIREMENTS: active participation, weekly journal, two papers and a final project

  POLT 33000-01    EUROPEAN POLITICS    

3 CREDITS INSTRUCTOR: Juan Arroyo, Muller 308, Ext. 4-3969 ENROLLMENT: 22 PREREQUISITES: Three courses in social sciences or the equivalent. OBJECTIVES: We start with the question of European identity: do we only mean the EU or something more general? Who is included or excluded, and how is this decided? This will lead to a discussion of “European” values. We will address tensions affecting the creation of a new geo-political entity called Europe out of many separate European countries. We consider the structures and selected policies of the European Union. The focus will be on the ideals of such a union, as contrasted with the reality of including different nations with very different policy priorities.   The course will introduce further tools for understanding European politics by looking at some of the key European ideological/political groups that are less familiar in the U.S. (Social Democracy, Christian Democracy, the Greens, post-Communism and the far right). Specific policies studied will include education, welfare, immigration, employment policy, and the environment.   Finally, students will examine the political systems of selected European countries, with their distinct sets of actors and policy priorities. The emphasis will be on institutional and policy variations in how each country responds to the same needs or issues, such as economics, civil rights, regional identity, and nationalism. Students will also consider Europe’s interaction with the rest of the world, both at the level of a union and of the individual countries.

POLT 34003-01       SELECTED TOPICS IN CP/IR      SS LA

TOPIC: POLITICS OF SECURITY IN EAST ASIA: CHINA, TAIWAN, THE KOREAS AND JAPAN

3 CREDITS

INSTRUCTOR: Kelly Dietz, Muller 310, ext. 4-3581

ENROLLMENT: 28

PREREQUISITES: Three courses in the social sciences. 

OBJECTIVES: This course will investigate contested notions of and practices related to security in the East Asian context. As a central theme of national politics and international relations, ‘security’ is typically a taken-for-granted concept used to analyze and/or justify state-centric military and political actions. This course takes a broad view of security as an historically contested and multi-dimensional component of all social relationships. We will examine case studies of popular struggles and other forms of resistance in China, Taiwan, the Koreas and Japan as a way of understanding how different conceptions of security form and get articulated at the individual, community, national and inter/transnational scales. Through this lens, we will also consider how security issues become ‘nationalized’ and how broader notions of security become intertwined with and marginalized by dominant conceptions of ‘security problems’ and their solutions. Cases will include a transnational movement to protect the biodiversity in the Cold War-era demilitarized zone between North and South Korea (the ‘DMZ’); clandestine resistance to internet controls in China; minority and indigenous rights struggles in China, Japan and Taiwan; popular efforts to reunite North and South Korea; anti-US military base struggles in (and across) Okinawa, Japan and South Korea; anti-nuclear movements; labor unrest in China; citizen participation in state-led disputes over national territories (e.g. the Senkaku Islands claimed by both China and Japan, and the Dokdo Islands claimed by Japan and Korea); mobilization by former military sex slaves (so-called ‘comfort women’); and Japanese citizen resistance to the ‘securitization of society’ in the context of the ‘war on terror’.

ENROLLMENT: 15

PREREQUISITES: Permission of the instructor and three courses in social sciences or the equivalent

OBJECTIVES: The seminar will explore portions of the voluminous literature on the Holocaust to extract implications for politics. Among the topics to be considered are the conditions that permit people to participate in genocide and the human capacity for self-deception that enables people to rationalize their actions. This section of the seminar will consider the controversy raised by Daniel Goldhagen’s book Hitler’s Willing Executioners. We will also explore the academic politics of Holocaust studies by reading works that both proclaim the uniqueness of the Holocaust and by considering authors who argue that too much attention has been paid the Holocaust to the neglect of other historical instances of genocide. The ethical lessons that can be gleaned from global indifference to the destruction of the European Jews will form another segment of the seminar. The global response to atrocities in Rwanda and Bosnia will be included for comparative purposes.

STUDENTS: Juniors and Seniors

FORMAT AND STYLE: The seminar will employ a discussion format

REQUIREMENTS: Five to six short papers; read 8- 10 books; regular class attendance and participation
