    • Heinemann, A

  • This sophomore writing seminar engages in a critical, in-depth study of the way in which people with disabilities and the disability experience are represented in an array of interdisciplinary texts, with particular emphasis on the legal tradition and interpretations. Drawing from a variety of historical as well as contemporary texts and documents, we will explore the implications of disability in culture and policy, particularly as they impact ideas of citizenship and rights, primarily in the United States, but also globally.  We will examine the history of disability law, looking closely at a number of Supreme Court cases and decisions. We will additionally allow for an intensive focus on the development of critical thought and reasoning in both oral and written communication. This course fulfills the ILR Advanced Writing requirement. Enrollment is restricted to ILR Sophomores and others with permission of the instructor.

  • Fulfills the ILR Advanced Writing Requirement. Enrollment is restricted to sophomores or others with permission who have not satisfied their ILR Advanced Writing Requirement. Human labor has the capacity to drastically alter nature in all its various forms. Labor's power in this regard is perhaps best demonstrated in the process of human induced climate change. Nature, however, was never a neutral foundation on which the systems and structures of American capitalism were built. Nature reacts to labor and forces it to change. An important part of American history is the story of the changing ways that workers probed nature to find out how value could be squeezed from it and how nature reacted to this exploitation. The readings and discussions in this class will focus on how people and systems have attempted to make nature valuable and the obstacles they encountered in the process. We will begin this class by reading several works of theory that can be used as a lens through which to read the rest of the semester's material. The course will then move slowly through the history of work and nature in America from the pre-Columbian time to the present. Throughout this course, students will be expected to think critically and creatively about the meaning of work and nature in an historical context.

  • This introductory course introduces students to issues and debates related to international migration and will provide an interdisciplinary foundation to understanding the factors that shape migration flows and migrant experiences. We will start by reviewing theories of the state and historical examples of immigrant racialization and exclusion in the United States and beyond. We will critically examine the notions of borders, citizenship/non-citizenship, and the creation of diasporas. Students will also hear a range of perspectives by exposing them to Cornell guest faculty who do research and teach on migration across different disciplines and methodologies and in different world areas. Examples include demographic researchers concerned with immigrant inequality and family formation, geographic perspectives on the changing landscapes of immigrant metropolises, legal scholarship on the rights of immigrant workers, and the study of immigrant culture from a feminist studies lens. Offered each fall semester.

  • This course is offered to students interested in furthering their knowledge of the principles and practices of restorative justice. Students will also acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques necessary to mediate complex campus disputes. The course considers the needs and roles of key stakeholders (victims, offenders, communities, justice systems) and explores in depth the principles and values of restorative justice. It also identifies challenges to restorative justice - the dangers, the pitfalls – as well as possible strategies to help prevent restorative justice from failing to live up to its promise. Much of the course is organized around the issue of harm and crime within our legal system. However, students will also be exposed to restorative justice in multiple contexts, including issues in higher education.
