22.091 Nuclear Reactor Safety (MIT) 22.091 Nuclear Reactor Safety (MIT)

Description

Problems in nuclear engineering often involve applying knowledge from many disciplines simultaneously in achieving satisfactory solutions. The course will focus on understanding the complete nuclear reactor system including the balance of plant, support systems and resulting interdependencies affecting the overall safety of the plant and regulatory oversight. Both the Seabrook and Pilgrim nuclear plant simulators will be used as part of the educational experience to provide as realistic as possible understanding of nuclear power systems short of being at the reactor.

21A.100 Introduction to Anthropology (MIT) 21A.100 Introduction to Anthropology (MIT)

Description

This class introduces students to the methods and perspectives of cultural anthropology. Readings emphasize case studies in very different settings (a nuclear weapons laboratory, a cattle-herding society of the Sudan, and a Jewish elder center in Los Angeles). Although some of the results and conclusions of anthropology will be discussed, emphasis will be on appreciating cultural difference and its implications, studying cultures and societies through long-term fieldwork, and most of all, learning to think analytically about other people's lives and our own.

Sport and Politics: Are the Olympic Games Political?

Description

The historic use of sport, particularly within the non-Western world, offers us numerous examples of the overt use of sport in the furthering of political and nationalistic objectives; a concept that many nation states might see little reason to deny.

Commercialisation of the Games

Description

‘the act of commercializing something; involving something in commerce’. Sport has become increasingly commercialised, particularly over the last two decades, leading to explosive growth in the sports marketing, sponsorship, sports tourism and consultancy sectors.

Olympic Games: catalyst of urban change

Description

The Olympic Games have emerged as a significant catalyst of urban change and can act as a key instrument of urban policy for their host cities. This paper reviews the effect of the Games on the built environment of the various cities which have acted as hosts in the modern Olympic period (1896-1996) and assesses the preparations now being made for the Games in Sydney in the year 2000. The review indicates that the Games have been increasingly used as a trigger for a wide range of urban improvements, although there have been considerable variations in the scale of infrastructural investment and in the public-private sector mix.

Why Corporations Sponsor the Olympics

Description

This study reports results of a survey of the top category of sponsors of the HLST, LL2012, London 2012, Olympics, Olympic Games, Paralympics, Paralympic Games, Learning Legacies, JISC, HEA, HLSTOER, sport, leisure, tourism, hospitality, Atlanta Summer Olympics in 1996. Results suggest that the growing investment in sponsorship of Olympics is motivated by a multitude of objectives such as information, imagery, signalling, and generation of trial and sales. Sponsors also want to reach several clienteles including consumers, trade clients, investors, and community through the sponsorship of the Summer Olympics.

21A.100 Introduction to Anthropology (MIT)

Description

This class introduces students to the methods and perspectives of cultural anthropology. Readings emphasize case studies in very different settings (a nuclear weapons laboratory, a cattle-herding society of the Sudan, and a Jewish elder center in Los Angeles). Although some of the results and conclusions of anthropology will be discussed, emphasis will be on appreciating cultural difference and its implications, studying cultures and societies through long-term fieldwork, and most of all, learning to think analytically about other people's lives and our own.
