Environmental Economics
Byun C

11:00AM - 11:50AM
ECO 234: Environmental Economics* This course uses economic principles to analyze the relationship between humans and the environment. The central theme is that there are competing demands for the limited supply of natural resources, such as clean air, water, and the waste assimilation capacity of the land. The application of economic theory can help us understand how to best allocate these scarce resources between various wants and needs of society. We will study how these natural resources are distributed via both market and command and control systems, analyze the potential problems with these allocations, and understand how to reallocate resources to achieve more socially desirable outcomes. We will cover issues such as market efficiency, externalities, cost-benefit analysis, the valuation of environmental resources, and alternative policy instruments for environmental use and preservation.

09:45AM - 11:00AM
RHE 270-01 - RHETORICS OF DELIBERATIVE INNOVATION IN SCOTLAND. This course will investigate the rhetorical process of dialogue, deliberation, and community engagement in Scotland and the United Kingdom. Students will examine rhetorical theories relating to deliberative democracy, and then use those to analyze and understand the Scottish context. Scotland is currently an exciting site for many types of democratic innovation, including citizens' juries, local community engagement efforts, participatory budgeting, and expanded participation through the devolution of powers to the Scottish National Parliament. This trip will have an immersion trip over spring break, and students will travel to Scotland and meet with government officials, university faculty and students involved with deliberative democracy, neighborhood organizations, and come face-to-face with the contours of Scottish democracy. Additionally, students will learn about the theories and practices of public deliberation, including framing public issues and facilitation. On returning from Scotland, students will compare and contrast the rhetorics of U.S. local, state, and national contexts for deliberative innovation. This course qualifies as a Literature & Fine Arts credit. One course credit. Enrollment by instructor approval only. Prerequisite: None **This course is open to freshmen, sophomores, and juniors only. Students need to apply for this course (refer to all-student email or contact Dr. Sara Drury, drurys@wabash.edu).

SPA-277: Ecuador. In his evaluation of the first Ecuadorian novel,Cumandáby Juan León Mera, Angel Porras wrote: "The importance of this first narrative model [in Ecuador] resides not only in its status as the country's inaugural novel, but also for having synthesized almost all the themes that constitute the core philosophy of Hispanic American Romanticism." These themes include history and politics. But they also include topics like biology, geography, religion, ethics, and gender. The 2019 Ecuador Program will take as its main focus the country's late colonial and independence periods. We'll use the novel as a virtual starting point to explore all the issues that constitute Hispanic American Romanticism. And then, after our .5 credit course this coming spring, we'll travel together to the country of Ecuador and its capital, Quito, which will become the actual starting point of a journey to retrace the steps of the novel, from the volcanoes above Ambato to the upper reaches of the Amazon rainforest and basin. During the last weeks of May and the first part of June, students will study Spanish at a University in Ecuador, live with host families, and then travel to the Amazon with Wabash faculty and indigenous guides. Prior approval and a completed application are required for this Immersion trip. The course is open to any student not yet in his senior year who has completed at least Spanish 202 prior to the Spring semester. However, preference will be given to applicants who have completed coursework at the 300 level. Immersion trip; Regitsration through instructor only. 0.50

THE-303: NEW YORK CITY ON STAGE AND SCREEN. From Lincoln Center to the Astor Place Opera House, from the Disney mega-musicals of Broadway to edgy one-person shows in the East Village, New York City has shaped American performance culture since the founding of the Republic. The objective of this course is to examine and experience the vast array of performance offerings of the City, a rich and perpetually-changing tapestry of theater, film, dance, opera, and performance art. We will also reflect on the ways in which New York City itself exists as a site of performance, both literally and symbolically. In this course, the student will study the history of New York performance, the distinctive theater and film industries and cultures of New York, and "the current season." We will also learn about the world of New York theatrical criticism, and become critics ourselves. Through research papers, short critical essays, presentations, and an immersion trip, students will engage with New York City as a center of national and global performance culture. Immersion trip; Registration through instructor only. 1.00
