          and Writing The Environment                       

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG  This course  draws on
          interdisciplinary            environmental
          perspectives to understand our interaction
          with  and  impact  upon  non-human nature.
          Structured  as  a  creative  "think tank,"
          students  will  share  and  evaluate their
          research   through   writing   and   group
          presentations.   Students will apply their
          discipline-based  skills  to collaborative
          projects    that    could    include   art
          installations,  performances, publications
          and  digital  media. This  course welcomes
          students   from  the  arts,  sciences  and
          humanities   who  are  interested  in  the
          environment    and    want    to   develop
          collaborative projects across disciplines.
          Note:  Open  to  juniors  and  seniors  by
          permission  only.  Permission  through the
          INDS  department required.  Also listed as

INDS 430B Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar Global                3 credits
          Society: Prospects for Sustainable                
          Development                                       

(PermReq) Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD This course will
          explore   the   international  community's
          responses  to  the  challenges  facing the
          world's  poor.  These  responses  will  be
          examined  with particular  emphasis placed
          on  the tensions which arise as the forces
          of   "globalization"  are  challenged  and
          informed    by   ideas   on   "sustainable
          development."   As   such,  the  differing
          interpretations   of  "globalization"  and
          "sustainable   development"   will   be  a
          primary theme in the course. Students will
          be guided in an analysis of the activities
          of  the recent United Nations World Summit
          in  Johannesburg  and  its  aftermath.  By
          identifying   and   integrating  economic,
          political,  and  cultural  frameworks  and
          methodologies, the course will examine the
          potential  impact  of  "globalization"  on
          poverty,  hunger,  pollution,  disease and
          conflict.  Through World Summit conference
          proposals,  guest  speakers,  readings and
          class discussions, students will develop a
          critical  understanding of how in the face
          of    these    challenges,    local    and
          international  policy decisions  are made.
          Permission of department required.
