Ghosts of Doctors Past with Melissa Stein

Medical standards and procedures have been sharply influenced by the past - shaped by social context and a great deal of trial and error. A new course, GWS 309: Health, History, & Human Diversity, will focus on how health care and the medical field has been shaped around social constructions of gender, race, and diversity throughout its history, continuing to play a role in contemporary medicine. In this podcast, Melissa Stein, an assistant professor in the Gender & Women’s Studies Department, discusses the aims, content, and importance of GWS 309 and how it can impact future patients and practitioners of medicine.

The History of Hip: Thomas Marksbury

The words “hip” and “hipster” carry around a lot of baggage. Often, due to misconceptions, "hipster" is used as an insult meant to suggest some sort of failed or inauthentic attempt at being "hip." But what if that isn’t what “hip” is? What if “hip” isn’t some obsession with the fleeting but a more permanent state?

Professor Thomas Marksbury hopes to address some of these questions this coming spring semester in his class UKC 310: History Of Hip. The class, which satisfies a UK Core requirement in Intellectual Inquiry in the Humanities, will encourage students to trace their own paths through the history of “hip”, a meditation on its permutations  throughout history and those individuals who embodied it.

UKC 120: Physics of Energy with Joseph Straley

We hear a lot about "energy independence" and "renewable energy," but what do those terms actually mean? A class is being offered to answer these questions and introduce students to concepts and debates around energy: where it comes from, how we use it, and what the future of energy looks like.  

UKC120, “Physics of Energy,” will examine coal, oil, nuclear power, hydroelectricity, wind, and solar power. Professor Joseph Straley will teach the course, and in this podcast, he explains why learning about the "Physics of Energy" isn't just for aspiring physicists - and why it's important to understand energy from many academic perspectives.
