Course No. 44
Presenter: Joan Thron
Coordinator: Barbara Beaver
Dates: Feb. 25, Mar. 4
Limit: 40 Time: 10:00 am – 12 Room: RH 220

Sentences, according to Stanley Fish, are “the nitty-gritty material” of writing. Yet his affection for them goes far beyond the nitty-gritty, and his book devoted to their service declares that their form is the “engine of creativity,” not the other way around. It is a bold claim. Indeed, it asks us to set aside our Handbook of English Grammar and look closely, instead, at the multiple ways writers of fiction and nonfiction use sentence patterns. Do they capture our attention – perhaps even without our awareness? If so, what effects do they have on our eyes, ears, hearts and minds?

Limit: 50 Time: 10:00 am – 12 Room: RH 230

The Middle East has been fraught with tension and war during the past century. The conflict between Arab Palestinians and the state of Israel remains unresolved. The state of Israel was proclaimed in 1948 under a United Nations resolution that called for the creation of two states in the British Mandate of Palestine. The Palestinians refused to accept this division and went to war. At the time of the UN action, the Arabs of Palestine made up about two thirds of the population and were to be allocated 42% of the land. Massive immigration of European Jewish refugees was anticipated and did flow into the land assigned to Israel. This course will review the histories of the British Mandate, Israel and the Palestinians and examine why the Palestinians long rejected two states, why the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) eventually accepted a two-state solution, and whether this solution, long supported by the United States, is still possible.

Coordinators: Betty Cicero, Mary Eisenreich
Dates: Jan. 29, Feb. 5
Limit: 120 Time: 10:00 am -12 Location: NPM

What do we know for sure about William Shakespeare of Stratford? Could someone with his limited educational background really have written all of those famous plays and sonnets attributed to him? And, if he did not write them, do the sonnets provide clues to the real author? And, are those sonnets just a random collection of trite conventional poems— or do they shed light on Shakespeare’s complex personal feelings about his adulterous affair with a “dark lady” and his jealousy of a rival poet?
This class will present a view of some evidence that exists to answer these questions, including some recent discoveries and theories. Session 1 will focus on Shakespeare’s life; Session 2 will focus on the Sonnets.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NUCLEAR RENAISSANCE? THE IMPACT OF KEWAUNEE NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SHUTDOWN (N)

Course No. 68
Presenter: Prof. Michael Kraft
Coordinators: Wes Carvenough, Ed Smith
Date: Feb. 12
Limit: 120 Time: 10:00 am – 12
Location: NPM

For the past decade or more, many have looked forward to the resurgence of nuclear power, particularly because it is a major, centralized source of electricity
generation that produces few greenhouse gases that are linked to climate change. However, the nuclear renaissance exists primarily in Asia and not in the United States, where until a year ago we have seen no new nuclear plants proposed and built for over three decades. Four reactors are now under construction in Georgia and South Carolina, but four have closed in the last year, including the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant in Wisconsin. This course explores these developments and offers some explanations for why nuclear power continues to face significant hurdles today. It also reviews the particular circumstances that led to the Kewaunee plant shutdown and
the implications for Northeastern Wisconsin.

Coordinators: Stu & Linda Hoar
Dates: Apr. 16, 23
Limit: 250 Time: 10:00 am – 12
Location: Kroc Auditorium

Successful geologic fieldwork requires adapting field methods to the limitations of the environment in order to address stated science goals. This is especially true when facing unique challenges of using spacecraft such as orbiters and rovers to conduct fieldwork on remote planetary surfaces. The diff erences between remote rover-based and in-situ human geologic fieldwork affect the nature of the resulting dataset and what can be learned from the dataset. What have we learned from the data we have acquired from spacecraft such as the Opportunity and Curiosity rovers, the Dawn spacecraft and other missions? How can we apply that data to problems here on Earth? These are the questions we will address in these two classes.
