Robert R. Smith Environmental Field Laboratory at Pine Lake
This course is a hands-on introduction to the process of excavating archaeological sites, as well as the field and lab procedures for analyzing the materials recovered during excavation. The primary objective of the course is to allow students to apply textbook knowledge to actual archaeological sites and materials. Specific objectives include: 1) Learning standard excavation and field processing techniques, including excavating a unit, screening, and flotation; 2) acquiring ability to recognize artifacts; 3) learning basic methods of artifact processing and laboratory analysis; and 4) promotion of greater understanding of Native American cultural traditions in the northeastern US. Students must complete a pre-application prior to being approved to enroll.
HUMA 250: Pottery for the Table: A Conversation on Food, Pottery, and Writing
Professors Stephanie Rozene (email@example.com) and Brendan Aucoin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
July 1-12: Monday-Friday (9:30-5:00pm)
Robertson Lodge at Pine Lake
This course combines elements of a summer studio workshop in ceramics, with a specific focus on tableware, with a conversation surrounding pottery, the experience of eating homemade food off of handmade ceramics, and the rich diversity of texts about food (such as Julia Child, Gabrielle Hamilton, Anthony Bourdain and Michael Pollan) as well as incorporating a practice of writing about the food we have cooked and consumed in our lives. As a part of community building we will engage in planting the Pine Lake summer vegetable garden, welcome speakers from local farms, restaurants and artists who are all engaged in a Farm to Table practice, create tableware for ourselves and for Pine Lake community activities as well as cook some community meals together at the lake. Wheel throwing experience is not necessary but is advised.
SOCI 350: Women and Work
Professor Cecelia Walsh-Russo, email@example.com
June 3-25: Monday & Tuesday (9:30-3:00pm)
Strawbale House at Pine Lake
This course looks at women's work historically and in the contemporary scene. We will look at the politics, economics, and history of women in the workforce. What constitutes work for women? Where do our ideas about women and work come from? Do contemporary women work for wages because they need the money or because they want to get out of the house? Is housework "real" work? Why is some work legal and some work, like prostitution, illegal? What explains the gap in pay between men and women? Why are there so many areas of work that are virtually segregated by race and by gender? Why can't poor women and working class women stay home with their children? We will investigate how women's roles have changed over time, and might further change in the future, in a globalized economy that is creating a small wealthy elite and a growing mass of impoverished people, the majority of them women.
