    • Among the topics you will explore in this course are clinical encounters, citizenship and the pharmaceuticalization of health, racialized medicine and pain management, the commodification of bodies through organ transplantation, structural violence and social suffering.

    • Discover materialist theories that examine the place of race and racism in social systems of expropriation and exploitation–especially capitalism, slavery, colonialism, and neo-imperialism.

    • This second-level coding class explores concepts of big data, algorithm credibility and accountability, and computer mediated social interaction through a hands-on experience building a world of autonomous ‘intelligent’ agents.

    • After examining the drafting and ratification of the Constitution in the late 1780s, this course uses a close reading of significant Supreme Court decisions to examine the Constitution’s major doctrines and the Supreme Court’s interpretation of those doctrines.
