7 Unofficial work cultures
In this unit, we are going to look at a number of situations which put a strain on the idea that caring is just 'being ordinary', including times when people are giving intimate care. In these special circumstances, since the normal rules do not apply, we have to develop a set of special rules to guide practice.

The class will concentrate on the origins of the modern city and theories about its emerging form, including the transformation of the nineteenth-century city and its organization. It analyzes current issues of city form in relation to city making, social structure, and
21H.991J Theories and Methods in the Study of History (MIT)
The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with a variety of approaches to the past used by historians writing in the twentieth century. Most of the books on the list constitute, in my view (and others), modern classics, or potential classics, in social, economic and cultural history. We will examine how historians conceive of their object of study, how they use primary sources as a basis for their accounts, how they structure the narrative and analytic discussion of their topic, and what are
CMS.801 Media in Transition (MIT)

Dr. Susan Flynn of College of Charleston and students show steps and perform line dance to song "Hey Baby" using jumping jacks, grapevine, claps, etc. This is a good resource for teaching rhythmic movement, dance, and team cooperation (4:45).
Quantitative models for early prediction of software development success: a practitioner’s perspec
This study investigated some of the early non-technical components of the software development process from the perspective of project success. The causal relationships among these components, as well as their relationship to software practitionersâ overall perception of project success, were depicted through a Bayesian Belief Network. Components related to sponsor/management, customer/users and requirements management. Data was gathered through a survey of practitioners. This research is imp
National Security and Intellectual Freedom
In fighting today's 'war on terror', how do the new post-9/11 national security laws, executive orders and policies infringe on our traditional freedoms of inquiry? Are they an important weapon in keeping Americans more secure? Do they benefit society and do they help keep us a free people? UCB faculty will discuss these issues in an evening that celebrates and honors the US Constitution of the 18th century. The panelists are: Michael Nacht, Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy and natio

21H.433 The Age of Reason: Europe in the 18th and 19th Centuries (MIT)
Has there ever been an "Age of Reason?" In the western tradition, one might make claims for various moments during Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance. In this class, however, we will focus on the two and a half centuries between 1600 and 1850, a period when insights first developed in the natural sciences and mathematics were seized upon by social theorists, institutional reformers and political revolutionaries who sought to change themselves and the society in which they lived. Thr
Body|Form|Space: Geometric translations of the body in motion
This paper presents a novel approach to digital investigation of body, space, form and motion to expose issues of spatial perception. The spatial experience as generated from, and translated by, the human body is the focus of this work. The work explores the representational value of the body?s sense-image, the context and spatial/visual literacy of the learned sense of space-time generated from the study of the human body. Here the body is conceived not just in space but also in time, affording
2.96 Management in Engineering (MIT)

21H.346 France 1660-1815: Enlightenment, Revolution, Napoleon (MIT)
A century and a half ago, Alexis de Tocqueville argued that the Revolution of 1789 in France constituted the culmination of long-term administrative and social changes, rather than a rupture with the past. In this class, we will consider that Tocquevillian insight by examining four aspects of French experience from the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV, to the rule of the Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte: Absolutism, Enlightenment, Revolution, and Empire. Through the study of primary and secondary sou

Watch the Whale Wash
Each year, the Museum's blue whale model gets spruced up in an annual scrub down. In the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, visitors at the Museum watched as members of the Exhibition department use long-handled brushes and vacuums to wipe away the dust from the 94-foot long, 21,000-pound model. On July 8, 2014, the Museum broadcast a special online livestream of the cleaning.
