AMST 355  Special Topics in Culture and Policy Women              3 credits
          and Gender in US Business History                 

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD This course will
          explore   women's   participation  in  the
          social   and   economic   institutions  we
          commonly  call  "business." It  will trace
          female   entrepreneurship   from  colonial
          midwifery  to Tupperware,  and examine how
          modern   women   transformed   traditional
          business    models    to    build    giant
          corporations  in  "feminine"  markets like
          cosmetics.  Readings  will  also construct
          women   as   producers,   investors,   and
          consumers.   Fundamentally,   this  course
          examines  the cultural context for women's
          engagement  in  the  market  and  how that
          behavior   has   challenged   conventional
          definitions  of  business  in  the  United
          States.   Also   listed  as  WMST390A  and
          HIST355D.

AMST 356  Special Topics in Community and Diversity               3 credits
          Gender & the Environment                          

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD Does nature have
          a  gender? Are there  specifically male or
          female  types  of  environmentalism?  What
          role  does  gender  play  in  contemporary
          environmental   issues?   Does  ecological
          sustainability require gender equity? This
          course will explore the many intersections
          between  gender  and  the  environment. We
          will  begin  with an  examination of basic
          concepts   in   gender  and  environmental
          studies,    such    as    gender   equity,
          sustainability, gender and the environment
          as  constructed categories and ecofeminist
          theory. Part two of the course exlores the
          history of gender and the environment with
          a   focus  on  the  history  of  the  U.S.
          environmental    movement.    The   course
          concludes  with an  exploration of current
          environmental  issues such as development,
          population,  reproduction, and sustainable
          living.  The course will  run as a seminar
          with an emphasis on group discussion. Also
          listed as WMST390B and GEOG302B.

AMST 357  Special Topics in Communications, Media,                3 credits
          and the Arts SPORTS AND MEDIA                     

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          examines  the American  sports industry as
          it  intersects  with  issues of  power and
          ideology  in the media.  Through a reading
          of  print media, as well as an analysis of
          sports  in American culture, students will
          have  the opportunity to view the multiple
          aspects of sports beyond its entertainment
          value.  In  particular,  the  course  will
          utilize    the    concept   of   "ultimate
          meritocracy"     to     investigate    its
          manifestation   in   the  American  sports
          industry.
