ENG3401: Law through Literature Spring 2015

ENG3401: Law through Literature Spring 2015

This course will allow us to thoroughly examine literature and films that focus on the often unbalanced scales of justice—especially as they relate to women and various ethnic groups. Together, we are going to examine the jury, the trial, the legal process, and the effects of judgment—or lack thereof. We will look at historically impacting cases, the development or dismantling of established laws, as well as the current status of these socially relevant issues. Using philosophy, specifically pragmatic precepts, we will also place the intentions of laws alongside their actual results, and see who benefits from the oppressive hand of injustice and, more importantly, who fails. This course is both reading and writing intensive. As such, to make sure we are processing the classroom discussions, we will have several exams on the essays, novels, and films we scrutinize together. Each of us will be responsible for multiple short essay papers and student briefs that will require online and/or library research, and there will also be a major style manual research paper (MLA or Chicago) assigned that will require each of us to review and outline lessons learned throughout the entire semester; as such, constant note taking is not only strongly encouraged but required. Keep in mind that this class requires the ability to engage in mature conversations, as we will talk openly about racism, religion, family, sexism, sex, Class, culture, poverty, and politics.

No country for farm men- US-Mex farmer shrinkage

No country for farm men- US-Mex farmer shrinkage

My goal is to explain the agricultural relation Mexico and its southern neighbors shares with the United States. It is interesting to note that agriculture was once was the largest sources of employment in every country in the region and now has fallen to a stable .07 percent share of the labor force in the United States–(with a shrinking share in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador). This transition is being met with a changing market, where we can see a general shift away from the agricultural industry and into the service sector. This is occurring in practically all of the Americas, owing to the fact to the privatization and mechanization of agricultural techniques has streamlined the process. Essentially, Mexico is coming to resemble the United States (lifestyle, urbanization, diet) and Central America is following suit (albeit, more slowly). As incomes rise, the workforce orients itself to the service sector.
