Model Classes

Sit in on a class hosted by one of our very own SLC professors. You're welcome to pick a topic or subject that calls to you, but every class will give you an idea of what to expect in an SLC classroom.

4/14 "Finding Happiness and Keeping It: Insights from Psychology and Neuroscience" with psychology professor Maia Pujara

4/14 "Finding Happiness and Keeping It: Insights from Psychology and Neuroscience" with psychology professor Maia Pujara

We all want happy lives filled with meaning and satisfaction. Yet, for many of us, happiness can be hard to obtain with regularity or to sustain over a long period of time. Why is that? In this model class, we'll take a bird's eye look at what the fields of Psychology and Neuroscience can tell us about why we are mentally unprepared to: (1) predict what will make us happy, and (2) engage in behaviors that are known to make us happier for longer periods of time. The ultimate 'take home' message from both this model class and the semester-long course is that, like exercising to improve our physical health, it takes real cognitive effort to overcome these tendencies for the benefit of our long-term mental health and wellbeing.

4/15 "Property rights and environmental wrongs - how social science can help save our planet" with economics professor An Li

4/15 "Property rights and environmental wrongs - how social science can help save our planet" with economics professor An Li

Every day, more and more citizens demand action to address climate change and other environmental crises. As scientific research has provided a lot of new knowledge for managing the crises (for example, limiting the increase in global average temperature to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels would substantially reduce the risks and impacts of climate change), solving the crises necessitates bringing in social science. In this class, we will discuss how economic theories and tools can help us understand and combat the environmental crises.

4/20 "About Time – Exploring Time from the Metaphysical to the Physical" with physics professor Merideth Frey

4/20 "About Time – Exploring Time from the Metaphysical to the Physical" with physics professor Merideth Frey

Let's take some time to think about time. This talk highlights topics covered in a first-year seminar course and aims to explore the topic of time from a wide variety of viewpoints and disciplines. We'll investigate what insights modern physics provides regarding the nature of time and perhaps uncover the inner workings of our universe along the way.

4/21 Ecocriticism: How Literature and Culture Shape How We Perceive Nature with Literature Professor Eric Leveau

4/21 Ecocriticism: How Literature and Culture Shape How We Perceive Nature with Literature Professor Eric Leveau

This seminar looks at ecocriticism, the discipline aiming to understand how culture and literature inform how we relate to nature and animals. The class will compare excerpts of stories of world creation from Apache and Laguna nations with the one found in Genesis, which has been so influential in the Western Judeo-Christian tradition. The class will also apply findings to more contemporary texts to see how other ways of talking and thinking about nature are possible and necessary today.
