Chemistry

CHEM 108 - Crime Science

Examines the role that the natural sciences play in analyzing physical evidence collected at a crime scene. Students begin by defining science and understanding why the government has placed special qualifiers on scientific expert witnesses. Students will survey the sciences used in a modern crime lab to undertand the principles behind the analyses. Three hours lecture, four hour laboratory per week.

CHEM 232 - Drug Design: From Concept to Market

Drug development is one of the most demanding and high-pressure fields in science and manufacturing today, but what does it take to develop a drug? What parameters determine that a drug will be developed to cure cancer, slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, or reduce the risk of heart attack? The objective of this interactive course is to teach students a better understanding of how drug development began, the process of drug discovery and development, and the highly interrelated activities involved in bringing a pharmaceutical discovery to approval and market.

CHL 424B - Verse Novels, Narrative Poetry

In this course we'll read and critique poetry for children and verse novels, which combine the pull of story with finely pared or lyrical language. We'll consider book-length narratives that rely on formal elements such as meter and rhyme and those written in free verse, depending for their power on well-chosen nouns and verbs, startling conjunctions, and echoing imagery. Some poetry may be more musical than linear, with an emphasis on concision and pacing, but poetry and prose exist on a spectrum, and we'll examine where borders blur.

CHL 427 - Special Topics: Folk & Fairy Tales

This course acts as an entry point to one of the most fevered debates of children's literature: are fairy tales for children? To move toward an answer, students will examine the complicated and evolving histories of both collected and individual stories, in both traditional art forms (e.g., fiction, poetry, picturebooks, film, music) and material culture (Halloween costumes, theme parks, and even cocktails). Which stories do we remember, and why? How do we make meaning of their earlier forms, as well as their contemporary re-visionings? And, finally, how do we define the relationship between 'folk' and 'fairy,' literature and the child?

CHL 438 - Greening of Children's & Young Adult Lit erature

Grounded in literary analysis and respect for the earth, ecocriticism is a way to respond to global injustices and accelerating climate crisis. It asks, what is the role of the humanities in addressing environmental issues and in forming possible solutions? To answer, this course will build a theoretical foundation for ecocriticism as it applies to children's and young adult literature. Drawing from a diverse range of voices and texts (e.g., The Lorax, The Birchbark House, The Hunger Games, The Hate U Give), we will work to decenter dominant paradigms, which privilege (white) human life above all other nature, by troubling ideas of what constitutes wilderness, consciousness, agency, and growth.
