Looking for a Block 5 course? Join Visiting Prof. Yogesh Chandrani for Culture, Power and History in South Asia (AN208/PA250/HY200). This course examines how cultural and religious life in South Asia has been transformed by the modern regime of power in the colonial and postcolonial eras. We will focus on how modern practices and technologies of rule such as the census, linguistic surveys, urban planning and modern law have engendered new conceptions of ethnicity, community, religion, space and time and how the legacies of colonial rule continue to affect and shape the politics of identity and recognition in postcolonial South Asia. Readings for this iteration of the course will focus primarily on urban life in South Asia in order and explore the rise of ethnic and religious nationalist movements, the problem of social and economic inequality, the politics of caste and gender, the politics of indigeneity, the relationship between identity politics and history writing. Readings on India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will be supplemented with film screenings.

What Would a Great CC Classroom for All look like? The Crown Faculty Center, The Butler Center, and the NEH Professorship invite interested faculty members to apply to a Spring 2018 Teaching & Learning Circle: “Good to Great in the CC Classroom.” Inspiration for this Circle comes from The Butler Center’s Good to Great programs, collaborative learning communities elsewhere, and feedback that faculty and students would like support to move from awareness of classroom issues to actively addressing these classroom issues.
We propose that a group of faculty, staff, and students study this question over the spring of 2018, determining whether and how to move forward, and if in agreement, establishing the curriculum for the inaugural “Good to Great in the CC Classroom” program to deeply explore the classroom teaching environment, on the Block Plan.
To that end, we seek about 16 faculty, staff, and students to commit to this Teaching & Learning Circle. Participants would agree to attend all (or most) of the following events: MLK Jr Day programming on January 15, 2018; extended discussion and goal-setting, January 16, 2018; blockly working group of ~2 hours each block, at time set by participants; the Early Summer Faculty Retreat (May 23-25, 2018).
If you would like to participate in this Teaching & Learning Circle, please complete a short application here: tiny.cc/GtGCCC While we may be unable to invite all interested campus members into the first Circle, there will be many opportunities to participate this year and in the future.

Did you know the Honor Council needs your approval to accept any changes to the Honor Code? Well, good thing you know now because the Honor Code is expected to change by the end of January! What’s changing?* Aside from minor formatting adjustments, we added a separate “Flagrancy” section in the Honor Code, which consists of the definition, examples of violations, and sanction recommendations. Additionally, we are moving the section of “Falsifying Information” under Article III: Violations to the separate “Flagrancy” section. Want to learn more about what all this means? Email Kate Schroeder at k_schroeder@ColoradoCollege.edu and get ready to vote on Friday, January 26th!

*These changes are conditional on whether our legal advisors approve said modifications.
