Core Honors Seminars

HOPR 2953H (Honors upper level seminar), 2 credits, S/U

HOPR 2953H 901 Mining Middle-earth: Applying Digital Humanities to Tolkien Fandom
Wed 4-5:40 pm
William Fliss, Raynor Memorial Library
Elizabeth Gibes, Raynor Memorial Library

We’re all a “fan” of something and this class will look at the unique nature of fan culture through a hands-on exploration into the Raynor Library’s extensive collection of J.R.R. Tolkien fanzines. The class will approach fandom studies through the lens of the digital humanities, applying digital technologies to areas of literature, history, philosophy and more. Our objective for the semester is to discover how we can learn new and interesting things about what we love when we harness technology to create, analyze, and visualize data about it.

HOPR 2953H 902 Getting to Green! Environmental Sustainability Leadership in Practice
Brent Ribble, Campus Sustainability Coordinator
TTh 11-11:50 am

Students will explore emerging topics at the intersection of environmental welfare, social justice, and economic security. They will learn leadership practices for sustainability and discover how real individuals, companies/organizations, and communities are “getting to green” through bold sustainability leadership. Students will meet faculty researchers and local sustainability professionals who demonstrate this leadership in their careers. Topics will include climate change, environmental degradation, natural resources conservation, air and water quality, energy technology, recycling and waste, sustainable development, and more – plus their significance related to society, business, and justice.

HOPR 2953H 903 Contemplative Practices; Comparative Traditions and Practices
Alan Madry, Law School
T 4-5:40 pm

The first goal of this seminar is to learn a simple practice of meditation that provides a uniquely deep and orderly restful state to the body and an equally deep and silent experience that results in greater awareness, centeredness, contentment, and equanimity. Second, we will explore a variety of contemplative traditions including how these traditions understand the highest possible state of human life and how contemplative practices contribute to the achievement of those states. Third, in reading texts from these traditions, we’ll think about how to read and understand complex texts that describe rich but unfamiliar cosmologies. And, finally, we’ll give some thought to how critically to evaluate the cogency of these narratives.

HOPR 2953H 904 The Beatles and The British Invasion
Bruce Cole, Raynor Memorial Libraries
Mon 3:30-5:10 pm

They came, they conquered—they never left. This course will examine the most influential and important rock bands of all time. On February 9, 1964, the Beatles made their first American television appearance. An estimated seventy-five million viewers — a record — tuned their TV sets to the Sunday night Ed Sullivan Show to witness John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr perform five songs. Extraordinary social, economic, and cultural changes quickly followed as "Beatlemania" became an exceptional mass media phenomenon. Seven years later the Beatles broke up, but their music and their multiple significance remain.

HOPR 2953H 905 Honors Dance Remix
Amy Brinkman-Sustache, Digital Media and Performing Arts
MW 10-10:50 am

This course is for students with or without previous dance experience, but definitely calls out to those who enjoy moving their body, feeling the rhythm of music, and learning sequences. The class begins with a Pilates and yoga based warm-up, and leads into exercises from the movement forms of modern and ballet. All steps will be taught and then brought together into phrases that will be memorized and performed.  The one written requirement it to compose a dance critique on a live dance performance. Attendance is mandatory.  

HOPR 2953H 906 Activism and Art: Interpreting the Civil Rights Experience in Milwaukee
Kathryn Otto,  Raynor Memorial Library
W 8–9:40 am

An abundance of Milwaukee-area Civil Rights events in the form of marches, freedom schools, digital humanities projects, in addition to other demonstrations have occurred over the last five decades. This honors seminar will present various Civil Rights-focused educational mediums, in addition to more traditional course work readings, that narrate the personal experiences of those who were apart of local movements. Each week the course will focus on a different event or educational medium employed by Milwaukee-area activists to communicate their perspectives to the broader community. 

HOPR 3957H (Core Honors Capstone Seminar) 1 credit, S/U

HOPR 3957H 901, #blacklivesmatter 
Sheena Carey, Diederich College of Communication
Donte McFadden, Educational Opportunity Program
Grant Silva, Philosophy
Wed 5–6:15 pm

A critical examination of the #blacklivesmatter movement, reactions to it, and the social, political and economic atmosphere which created the conditions for its birth. Drawing from philosophy, rhetorical studies, and media-analysis, this course will also explore justice related issues, intersectionality, and the magnification of marginalized narratives. Consisting of three large lectures and planned discussion sections, this course challenges students (and the university and greater Milwaukee area) to address racial justice in the 21st century.
