The Best Way to Experience Grave Encounters: Dual Audio on SoundCloud
The voice has been one of the most evocative means of communication, perhaps because we hear the voice as a physical, as well as emotional, expression. The subject of this course explores the changing uses of voice in the twentieth century by placing a special emphasis on the employment of audio-visual techniques to enhance the power of the voice. While exploring the roles of recorded sound, loudspeakers, radio waves, and electronic means, this course will pay attention to the implications of new forms of speech technology for the medium and its audience.

Students are expected to master this narrative with the goal of better understanding the political (and diplomatic), intellectual, social, religious, economic and cultural histories and their cause-effect relationships. Central to this historical narrative is to create a working content knowledge of the art and music, genres and individuals, reflective of the history of Modern Europe. Chronological and thematic European history is thus used to develop the students intellectual and academic skills. To better accomplish this, effective note-taking skills are modeled and stressed. Analysis of primary documents (texts, charts, maps, paintings, music, and relevant graphics) is strongly and frequently used. This culminates with the goal of increasing the students ability to compare and contrast, analyze, and evaluate events, trends, human actions, and various movements within the narrative and thematic history both verbally and especially in writing.
This course takes as its starting point the following question: What obligations do we have to others. From this initial question more arise. How do we define obligation and who are the people or groups to whom we are obligated. Are we, as educated individuals, obligated to donate our skills and time to people less fortunate than ourselves. Does the relative prosperity most of us enjoy as Americans obligate us to share our resources with countries whose citizens live in squalor and without access to basic services, education, and healthcare. Should we help those in poorer countries before we assist the poor and disadvantaged living within our own borders. These are just a few of the questions we will consider. The process of answering these questions will inevitably lead to further inquiry, requiring our compassion and, most importantly, our skills as critical readers and thinkers. To those ends, we will turn to a significant number of literary, filmic, historical, and philosophical texts that will challenge our preconceived notions of justice and invite us to re-imagine how we define and fulfill our obligations to others. This course fulfills the Meaning, Ethics, and Social Responsibility requirement.
