The course will begin by studying a wide selection of influential Enlightenment philosophy, mainly Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and Montesquieu, with particular emphasis on the notion of the nation-state and rulers.
We will then build upon that foundation by closely reading notable biographies of Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, whose at times acrimonious debates laid the foundation for the Constitution of the United States of America.
We will closely read that constitution and the Bill of Rights that informed it, as they are debated and revised prior to ratification. Slavery was of course the main bone of contention, but so was the creation of a central bank and a standing army. To better understand these heated exchanges, we will look at a number of pertinent essays from The Federalist Papers.
Again we will read his biography and study the founding constitution of these states. In each case, we will frequently refer back to the Enlightenment philosophy that greatly influenced the ideas of these men.

Kathlene McDonald Every year, millions of women leave economically challenged countries in the Americas for care jobs in the United States as nannies, domestic workers, and home health aides.
This transfer of labor results in a care deficit in their home countries in order to ease a shortage of care workers in the US. This capstone seminar will focus on this labor exchange, with an emphasis on home health workers, whose labor is becoming more and more necessary as life expectancy increases in the US and those with chronic illnesses and disabilities are living longer than in previous eras.
The labor of home health care work has been at the crux of most major policy debates in the United States as of late, including immigration reform and affordable health care. It has also been a central issue in labor organizing campaigns across the country. This seminar brings together narrative inquiry and social science research to provide students opportunities to produce innovative interdisciplinary research projects that draw on multiple research methodologies.
The first part of the class will explore the flow of workers within the Americas and the role of carework in the global economy through readings in history, sociology, anthropology, and public policy. In the middle part of the semester, students will be given an introduction to oral history methodology and will conduct two oral history interviews with care workers in the NYC area.
Ultimately, students will develop capstone projects that connect these interviews to course readings and themes and which could take the form of a research paper or a written or digital narrative short story, documentary play scene, autoethnography, podcast, etc.
