Introduction to Animal Welfare Science
ENVS 231 taught by Liv Baker

Animal Welfare Science (AWS) developed as a multidisciplinary field of research to address animal well-being. It draws upon information and methodology from a host of disciplines to address individual-level concerns of non-human animals. It incorporates components of veterinary medicine, neuroscience, animal behavior, and physiology. This course introduces students to the scientific assessment of animal welfare. Students should gain a basic understanding of the ethical and biological foundations of animal welfare research and knowledge of a variety of current animal-related issues pertinent to domesticated, research, zoo, and free-ranging animals.

The Acceleration of Europe: Mobility and Communication, 1000-­1700
CHUM 267
Fall 2014
Crosslisting: HIST 392

This research course explores the thesis that during the Middle Ages, Europeans began to move faster, to move more often, and, by doing so, transformed the nature of social life, cultural life, and the character of selves and minds in the world. The course will explore the material aspects of this, such as the nature and development of roads and bridges, ships and canals, inns and hospitality that sustained and encouraged advancing travel. Thematic importance will be given to the place of horses and horseriding in these developments. The course is about the history of communication and the idea that a particular sort of traveler was created through later medieval travel and became the means of cultural and psychological acceleration. The social and cognitive networks established through travel, including the exchange of letters and messages, linked the local to the national. Merchants, pilgrims, soldiers, judges, students, preachers, and bureaucrats became the means of spreading news, changing views, and speeding up the world. This course will expose students to methods and skills in the digital humanities such as network analysis, Geographic Information Systems, and database analysis.
