Special Topics in Criminal Justice

Topic for Summer 2011: Communities and Crime. Crime is not distributed evenly across communities and neighborhoods. While some communities experience very little crime and violence, other communities face these social problems on a persistent and regular basis. At the same time, the quality of public responses to crime differs a great deal across neighborhoods. Neighborhood characteristics shape and are shaped by police, court, and correctional practices. What accounts for these differences in crime and criminal justice practices? What can public agencies and community organizations do to address crime problems within communities? This course draws upon social and political explanations to understand the nature, causes, and consequences of crime and criminal justice within a community context. In addition to class discussion and readings related to communities and crime, students explore these complex and important issues through case studies of local neighborhoods, community organizations and criminal justice agencies. 4 cr.

Economics and Management Decisions

Prereq: (GSM OB 712) Also Recommend: GSMQM717. The aim of the course is to present many of the decision problems managers face and to present the economic analysis they need to guide these decisions.

An additional goal is to distinguish different market structures and apply competitive strategies using game theory. In the second half, the focus shifts to the study of the national and global economic environments within which companies operate. We identify the drivers of fluctuations in GDP, inflation, interest and exchange rates, and other key features of the economies. Since governments play key roles in determining the fate of economies and companies, the final theme is the rationale for and efficacy of government policy tools. 4 cr.

In a media world that is rapidly changing, the ability to write with verve and style has become more important than ever. Today, a post to a blog site–sometimes even a tweet–can bring a writer attention. With more and more outlets, there are more opportunities for original writing and talent to emerge. However, there is also more competition, and the writer needs to rise above that with skill and craft. The goal of this course is to help students develop that skill and craft. Along with the principles of solid reporting and fidelity to accuracy, we examine the techniques of creative non-fiction, including narrative, style, and voice. Students work on storytelling, voice, style, description, anecdote, pacing, and narrative. Part of the course is operated as a writer’s workshop. Each student will email copies of selected work, which will be critiqued in-depth by the class as well as by the professor. 4 cr.

Journalism Special Topics

Topic for Summer 2011: Travel Writing: The Journalism of People and Place. Travel writing has a rich and lively tradition in journalism.

In the more distant past, the genre has cultivated many great writers: Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, and Mark Twain.

The goal is to produce work of professional quality for newspapers, magazines, or possibly book-length works. It requires in-class and out-of-class writing assignments.

Prereq: CD710 or OB710/711 or OB712 or OB713. This course uses the theory and research on effective negotiating strategies to build students’ understanding of, and skills for, managing differences and negotiation situations. The course considers, among other topics, the issues of negotiating across functions, between levels, across national and cultural differences, over race and gender differences, and between organizations. Students examine: 1) problems of influence and self-defense in highly competitive “hardball” negotiations; and 2) the art of using differences for creative problem-solving and “mutual gain” outcomes. The emphasis is on developing practical skills for effective negotiations that can be applied to concrete situations. Students should be prepared to learn from their own experiences and practice in this course. 3 cr.

FILM & TV

History of Television

Examines the ways in which industrial factors and communication policies have shaped the medium that sits in 99% of U.S. homes. Begins by examining television’s roots in radio. The remainder of the course is broken down into three stages of television history advanced by Rogers, Epstein and Reeves (2002). The first category is TVI- the period of three-network dominance. The next stage, TVII, is characterized by the rise of cable television and the decentering of the three networks. The course concludes by considering the current stage of television- TV III- in which the era of “on demand” has further destabilized traditional notions of content, audiences, producers, scheduling and technologies. In addition to tracing this development historically and thematically, we confront it critically, analyzing the connections between power and money in the medium of television. 4 cr.

Special Topics

Topic for Summer 2011: A Social History of Boston’s North End. A socio-cultural history of Boston’s North End that surveys changes in the region from the colonial period to the present. Centers on the dynamics of culture change among North End’s Italian immigrants. Examines the causes of immigration conflicts and competition with Irish immigrants; the importance of religious societies and festivals as an expression of anticlerical Catholicism; kinship and regional factors in residential distribution; the context, content, and influence of W.F. Whyte’s Street Corner Society; myths and realities of the Boston Mafia; the impact of drugs and drug related youth violence in the 1980s; and the changes brought about through gentrification, demographic change, and economic stratification. We also examine the re-creation of the North End as an Italian style neighborhood through studies of tourism, the marketing of ethnic cuisine and lifestyle, and research on ethnic theme parks. We utilize historical documents and studies of the colonial period, sociological analyses of immigration and urban communities, and current research on gentrification, development, and tourism. Course will include 2 visits to the North End. 4 cr.
