New Blog Post: It's A Small World After All - Have you ever wondered if the email you addressed to Rice but sent to USC traveled between the two schools?  Did your high school counselor really used to sit next to your admission counselor at your dream school?  Are they actually still friends?  How did the YouTube video you made for your high school open house make it to the admission counselor who is interviewing you?  Did the Director of Admission at UCLA really used t... http://ow.ly/2JVLGh

The SWMS 599: Food Cultures and Food Politics Maymester course invites students to explore U.S. food cultures in an effort to understand how the foods we cultivate and consume affect our political and intimate lives.

We will focus in particular on how food practices differ along the axes of gender, class, race, nationality and sexuality.

Students spend a great deal of time learning in the field—in farms, restaurants, in eateries long-established, or transient and mobile—in order to consider how our preconceived, aesthetic notions of taste are interwoven with the material practices of making, distributing, sharing and consuming specific kinds of food.

Beginning with several trips to the ethnically diverse eateries of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities, our travels will extend to other sites in California and the Pacific Northwest. #USCDornsife #PWP #Maymester

Students in REL 134: Buddhism in Los Angeles will examine the relationship between ancient Buddhist texts and contemporary Buddhist life.

In classroom sections students study the foundational scriptures of major Buddhist traditions.

Then, in weekly field trips they will visit temples in the Los Angeles area and talk with monastics about how these classical texts are used and understood in contemporary Buddhist life. #USCDornsife #PWP #Maymester

AHIS 470: Contemporary Art in New York offers a course in contemporary art history and critical writing in New York.

Over the weeks of the Maymester term, students will view numerous exhibitions and installations in museums, galleries, and outdoor sites, as well as study the history of criticism with the goal of learning to write about art from looking closely at it.

Studio visits with artists and meetings with a host of art professionals—from critics and editors to curators and educators—will offer a range of opinions that will inform group discussions and provide insight into the practical concerns such jobs entail. #USCDornsife #PWP #Maymester

This summer, 15 USC students enrolled in International Relations 445: US Defense and Foreign Policy Nonproliferation and Weapons of Mass Destruction will travel to Washington, D.C. to meet with experts, officials, and Congressional representatives to discuss key issues concerning nuclear security and weapons of mass destruction, and how their respective organizations are engaged in policy-making and implementation.

Approximately 50 meetings will take place during the six-week course in Washington, concluded by student briefings on problematic regions, including Iran, Pakistan and India, North Korea, and Russia.

The instructor, Dr. G. Wayne Glass, Professor Emeritus at the School of International Relations, had a long and distinguished career in Washington before coming to USC in 2002. #USCDornsife #PWP #Maymester

Anthropology 409: Indigenous Languages in the Contemporary World investigates linguistic revitalization movements, with an ethnographic focus on Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Students meet with people from all walks of life and involved with the language, visiting Gaelic radio stations, preschools, and various cultural organizations.

Students see how the revitalization works differently in various locales and in different nation-states, ranging from cosmopolitan Dublin, to the conflicted Northern Ireland, and to remote Gaeltacht villages. Along the way, they meet many fine people, and learn a bit of the Irish language and culture. #USCDornsife #PWP #Maymester
