Archaeology of Medieval and Tudor Britain

Description

The aim of this course is to provide a broad understanding of the archaeology of Britain in the period c. 1066-1600. Although the bulk of the material will relate to England and Wales, occasional reference will be made to Scotland and Ireland. The course takes a necessarily broad approach to the archaeology of the period. Although the treatment of excavated data will form an important component of the syllabus, other types of evidence will also be considered. For instance, the course will examine the architecture of monasteries and parish churches, consider the Bayeaux Tapestry as a critical source for the interpretation of Norman castles, and stress the importance of the English landscape as an historical document.

The English Countryside, Rural Life and Cultural Change, 1900-75

Description

This module will explore a relatively new area of historical research: the twentieth century countryside. Of interest first will be the realities of rural life and work in the first half of the century. The course will then consider the crucial post-war changes in farming, planning and rural living that have had such an impact upon contemporary perceptions of the countryside.

Post-Conflict Reconstruction: Global Health Concerns and Issues

Description

A Public Health Seminar delivered by Candace Chandra, Founder and President, Canary Strategies, LLC on Monday, May 10, 2010 Due to the severity, length, and frequency of conflict around the world, global health is increasingly involved in post-conflict reconstruction. Conflict is increasingly impacting not just the burden of disease and prevalence of serious injuries (including mental health), but also destroying health care systems and physical infrastructure - creating an emergency situation similar to disasters. This seminar will focus on emerging trends in post-conflict global health, as well as provide lessons learned from post-conflict reconstruction projects in which the presenter was directly involved. Candace Chandra founded Canary Strategies, LLC in 2001. Prior to beginning Canary Strategies, she served as Assistant Regional Adviser, Waste Management Unit at the Center for Environment and Health of the World Health Organization's (WHO) European division (which included 52 countries). During her time at WHO and for a year and a half before, she was part of the coordination and management team for the Vice-President, Human Development Network at the World Bank. In addition, she served as a consultant to the US Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. She has extensive experience in project management in developing countries, particularly the Balkans and Latin America, and has developed policy guidelines on heavy metals in soils and health care waste management for the US Environmental Protection Agency, World Bank, and World Health Organization. She speaks English (native), French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and German.

The Long Road Home from Iraq

Description

A Video Lecture Delivered on April 9, 2008. Dr. Jack Miles, Pulitzer Prize winning author of God: A Biography and bestselling sequel Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God, was MacAurthur Fellow 2002-2007, and in 2008 joined UCI as Distinguished Professor of English and Religious Studies. A Senior Fellow in Religion and International Affairs of the Pacific Council, Jack observes that since tribalism and religious interests in the Sunni, Shia, and Kurds take precedence over any sense of nationalism, being "the Iraqis," withdrawal will need to account for these differences, the destabilization of U.S. invasion created in the Middle East, the importance of diplomatic relations with Iran, and how this affects "oil," the ultimate motive.

Republican Law, 1770-1830

Description

This Chancellor's Chair Lecture, recorded on March 21, 2011, addresses the expressive legalism of the American Revolution and explains how it turned into a legal culture that ceased to stand in imaginative solidarity with "the people themselves." Republican law lived in a contradiction between a revolutionary people imbued with law as imaginative possibility, and a constituted polity whose law defined the limits of imaginative political action. As the republic matured, the tension between its two formative revolutions became ever more apparent in its legal order. Eventually, those tensions would contribute their mite to the great unraveling that would end in another civil war. Christopher Tomlins joined the faculty of UC Irvine's Law School in July 2009. He came from Chicago, where for 17 years he was a Research Professor on the faculty of the American Bar Foundation. Tomlins has taught at universities across the globe and has degrees from Oxford University and the University of Sussex, and a PhD in History from The Johns Hopkins University. He is a legal historian with wide-ranging interests, and has written or edited six books, the most recent of which is Freedom Bound: Law, Labor, and Civic Identity in Colonizing English America, 1580-1865, published in 2010. Chancellor's Chairs are endowed positions awarded to a very small number of UCI professors across the campus who demonstrate unusual academic merit.
