Week 01 Lecture: Introduction and Policy Instruments
Richard and Peter introduce students to the course, central concepts, and teaching arrangements. The first lecture will provide an overview of the subject matter to be explored throughout the semester, the purpose of tutorials as a means for students to engage in deep conversation on the issues which are to be facilitated by students. The role of the supertutorial will be explained, a tool and support mechanism for tutorial facilitators to gather in the week prior to their facilitation for the p
Week 01 Lecture: Introduction
The first lecture introduces students to the course, the teaching staff, and the course themes. Richard and Alastair will share their views on teaching and learning, providing students with an opportunity to think about the ways they have learnt through primary and secondary school, into tertiary education. This lecture will also cover the assessment scheme, assessment tasks, and if time permits start on defining the central themes of the course: "environment", "society", and "resources".
John Haldon, Princeton University: History, Remote Sensing, and GIS - The Avkat Survey Project PDF
This talk introduces briefly the Avkat Archaeological Survey, a collaborative research project in north-central Anatolia which seeks to integrate a number of different approaches to studying the past, using recent technological advances to integrate disparate datasets into a cohesive framework of analysis. From the 1980s, there has been continued development of methodologies of archaeological field survey, as well as remote sensing techniques ranging from ground-penetrating radar to airborne rad
13 - Banking: Successes and Failures
Banks, which were first created in primitive form by goldsmiths hundreds of years ago, have evolved into central economic institutions that manage the allocation of resources, channel information about productive activities, and offer the public convenient investment vehicles. Although there are several types of banking institutions, including credit unions and Saving and Loan Associations, commercial banks are the largest and most important in the banking system. Banks are designed to address t
15 - Lincoln, Leadership, and Race: Emancipation as Policy
Professor Blight follows Robert E. Lee's army north into Maryland during the summer of 1862, an invasion that culminated in the Battle of Antietam, fought in September of 1862. In the wake of Antietam, Abraham Lincoln issued his preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, a document that changed the meaning of the war forever. Professor Blight suggests some of the ways in which Americans have attempted to come to grips with the enigmatic Lincoln, and argues that, in the end, it may be Lincoln's capac

6. Malthusian Times
Global Problems of Population Growth (MCDB 150) In many regions, the central cultural idea is that of a lineage, a family and its line of male ancestors and descendants. The prime duty in these cultures is to keep the lineage going. Religion is small scale with the ancestors performing many of the functions of gods. Denser populations and larger political entities lead to large-scale religion where conformity is stressed and cultural rules are codified in a book and not subject to discussion wi
