JMS:Negotiation&Communication - 48141 - HEDU 499 - 02
Negotiation & Communication Strategies - Robert Brown - Students in this course learn about negotiating by actually negotiating with each other in real-life settings focused on social justice environments. (In the past we have negotiated terms for Colin Kaepernick’s return to the NFL, discrimination claims brought by employees, and cooperation agreements between social justice organizations.) This interactive environment emphasizes the reality that the ability to negotiate effectively is critical for success. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to concepts in negotiation, interpersonal effectiveness, and organizational conflict resolution. We will explore various types of negotiations including integrative (win/win approach), distributive (win/lose approach) and various iterations of these two extremes. In addition, we discuss communication (face to face, virtual, verbal/nonverbal), emotion/perception (psychological intangibles), team/multiparty negotiations, and international negotiations and cultural differences. We will interrogate implicit biases, cross-cultural communication and power dynamics that manifest in an adversarial environment. J-Mester courses are free elective courses. It is advised that students engage Advisors prior to enrolling to determine if credit from these courses can be applied to their specific major or can fulfill general education requirements.

JMS:Gentrification:Public Heal - 48142 - HEDU 499 - 03
Gentrification: A public heath examination of how neighborhoods are designed - Dr. Teaniese Davis - This J-mester course will highlight how the built environment, policies, neighborhood engagement, racism, economic stability, education, and neighborhood structures impact the health of a neighborhood and its residents. We will use models from Public Health to discuss the levels of intervention and strategies that can shift individual behavior and neighborhoods. The foundation of the course will begin with reading The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein. We will also have supplemental readings from peer-reviewed research articles and podcasts. We review numerous case studies as examples of how neighborhoods have changed and are in the process of changing to enhance the health of the neighborhood, thereby enhancing the health of the neighbors. J-Mester courses are free elective courses. It is advised that students engage Advisors prior to enrolling to determine if credit from these courses can be applied to their specific major or can fulfill general education requirements.

JMS:A Philosophy of the Absurd - 48143 - HEDU 499 - 04
A Philosophy of the Absurd - Illya Davis - A Philosophy of the Absurd is a philosophical engagement with a human tendency to provide intelligibility and explanation for incomprehensible and incoherent forms of life that emerge in unwarranted sufferings and contradictions. These complexities of living lead to an inclination to attempt to extract at least semblances of meaning that account for human existential resolve and intention. These basic, yet often failures in explanation that fracture reason’s capacity to adequately redress are exacerbated by the overarching reach and impact of racism in the form of anti-Blackness. This course will analyze the basic structures of the absurd as it intervenes in and disrupts Black living and functioning in the U.S. and the diaspora. The killings and sufferings perpetrated against Black folks by quotidian interactions as well as by unregulated state sanctioned abridgements of Black existence warrant practical strategies in the presence of absurdity. We must bring some clarity to human existence in the form of viable responses. We will endeavor to discern what are attendant dispositional outcomes of the absurd, such as tragedy and angst. The fundamental aspiration is to imagine practical approaches to absurd existence through answering the most consequential queries, e.g., “How should we live in the presence of human absurdities?” We must be makers of meaning and philosophical reflection may assist in this regard. J-Mester courses are free elective courses. It is advised that students engage Advisors prior to enrolling to determine if credit from these courses can be applied to their specific major or can fulfill general education requirements.

JMS: Sport, Culture, Power - 48154 - HEDU 499 - 08
Sport, Culture and Power-Dr. Chelsea Heyward - The purpose of this course is to analyze the implicit and explicit position of sport in relationship to American culture and power through personal and professional fabrics, spheres of influence, and societal impact. By utilizing the four frameworks of Identity (Sports & Age, Gender, and Race), Representation (Sports & Media), Systemic Change (Sports & Politics, Activism, and Justice), and Disruption (Sports & Business, Money, and Pop Culture), students will be exposed to a variety of processes and experiences that expand their world view and assist in defining or redefining their own identity.

JMS:Ethics, Justice, & Soc Jus - 48162 - HEDU 499 - 10
Ethics, Justice and Social Justice-Dr. Nathan Nobis - This course introduces students to the logical and philosophical skills used to evaluate arguments concerning matters of ethics, justice and social justice: what should we believe, and what should we do, about these sorts of issues? When there is a complex and controversial question of ethics or justice, how do decide which position(s) are more likely to be correct? Our initial concerns are abstract: first, how do we define our area of concern, so what makes something an ethical issue, an issue of justice, or an issue of social justice? Next, what are some of the better ways to determine whether an action or policy is ethical or not, whether some practice is just or an injustice, and when is something done a social injustice, and what are we seeking when we are seeking (social) justice? In general, how do we think critically about answers to ethical and justice related questions? Our focus, however, will involve applying general insights from theories and principles of ethics and justice, and critical thinking, to contemporary issues of social justice, such as the criminalization of drug use, punishment and the death penalty, reparations for historical injustice, police violence, gun violence, abortion, immigration, racism, discrimination against people who are not heterosexual or cis-gendered, health inequality, wealth inequality, many forms of racial discrimination and prejudice, climate change and more. Topics will be chosen, in part by students’ interests. Guest (online) speakers from some local organizations that address some of these ethical challenges will come to class to share how and why they seek justice through their efforts. Note that J-Mester courses are free elective courses. It is advised that students engage Advisors prior to enrolling to determine if credit from these courses can be applied to their specific major or can fulfill general education requirements.

JMS:Taiwan-Treasure Island - 48766 - HEDU 499 - 11
Taiwan-Treasure Island: History of Fighting for Social Justice- Dr. Ruihua Shen - The course offers an introduction to Chinese/Taiwanese culture and society through the lenses of social and political changes in Taiwan. This course, which includes a fully funded two-week field trip to Taiwan, examines the history and society of Taiwan, with a focus on its unwavering fight for social justice and democracy. Taiwan has had a long political and economic partnership with the US. The current political and economic tensions between China and the US have placed Taiwan in the forefront of US national security concerns as well as peace efforts in the world. With the support of TECRO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States) and the American Institute in Taiwan, the Department of States of the US, Morehouse students will have the opportunity to participate in a field trip to Taiwan in the summer of 2021. Students will experience Taiwan’s modern, traditional, urban, suburban and rural life while discovering how Chinese /Taiwanese traditional culture coexists with Taiwan’s modern and democratic culture. The course has two components: an academic course and a field trip to Taiwan. While the JMester course focuses on academic aspects, the summer study trip is integrated as a vital extension, since it provides students with the opportunity to contextualize and deepen various topics previously studied in class. Note that J-Mester courses are free elective courses. It is advised that students engage Advisors prior to enrolling to determine if credit from these courses can be applied to their specific major or can fulfill general education requirements.
