European Literature Since 1800

Continuation of the survey of European literature from the cusp of Romanticism through Modernism, focusing on key literary texts, supplemented with other cultural material (from philosophy, the sister arts, and so forth…)

To familiarize DFLL students with key non-Anglophone European literary texts from the “long” 19th century as crucial to an understanding of the contemporary British and American texts in their other courses, and as recent prehistory of the present.

The objective of this course is to familiarize students with major authors and trends in Continental European literature after 1800.

Latin (Ⅱ)(1)

Latin II is somewhat more challenging extension of Latin I. Students who took Latin I in the summer session will have to make themselves very familiar with the first thirty three lessons of Wheelock’s Latin 6th edition revised before starting this course.

Unlike Latin I this course focuses more on unadapted passages from the ancient authors. We will be starting at around Lesson 34 in Wheelock’s Latin and go to Lesson 40. After a short review of the entire text we will be doing a selection of passages from Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati in the back of Wheelock’s text. We will be doing an intensive examination of the poets Catullus and Horace. The selection of other passages will depend on the interests of the students.

Around March 10 of each year we will move on to Wheelock’s Latin Reader,Selections From Latin Literature(Second Edition) by Frederic M. Wheelock. In this text we will be covering the following: selections from Cicero’s Oration against Verres;a comparison of the Letters of Cicero and Pliny;selections from Livy’s History of Rome,Ovid’s Metamorphoses,Cicero’s Philosophica(either On Moral Responsibilities or ON Friendship),as well as selections in medieval Latin from The Vulgate and medieval hymns and drinking songs. If time permits we will also look at Latin selections from The Venerable Bede,as well as the Story of the Three Caskets in the Gesta Romanorum.

Students will be assessed as follows:

Attendance 20%

Assignments and Homework 40%

Introduction to Western Literature (Ⅰ)

This course firstly introduces the Hebrew Bible to explore the ancient Hebrew culture and the relationship between man and God. Then we enter the world of the Greek Mythology by reading Homer’s epics: Iliad and Odyssey. Following the Trojan legend, we read Virgil’s Aeneid to explore how the Romans created their national epic based on the story of Troy. Each of these works will be read closely, analyzed carefully, and discussed with its own cultural and historical context. We will proceed mainly in two forms: lectures and small group discussions. Every week, students are expected to finish reading materials and post response on the forum in the class website. In the beginning of each class, we will have a 5-minute quiz. Finally, students are required to make a short oral group presentation (10 minutes) in class. This course is designed as a survey course which encompasses major prose and poetry of western writers from the Hebrew Bible to Virgil’s Aeneid. By focusing on these canonical works, this course aims to lead students to explore the beginning of human civilization, ancient cultures, and important classical legends. At the end of the course, students will be able to:
1. Understand important ideas in ancient, classical, and medieval literatures and cultures.
2. Analyze important themes and motives in these literary works.
3. Get familiar with the Hebrew, Greek, and Roman traditions.

Techniques in Neurobiology

The summer training camp is an intensive collaborative lab course held once every year. This year this course will take in about 22 students, mostly incoming graduate students from participating PIs lab, but also highly motivated undergraduates. The course will run from August 5th to Aug 29th, 5 days a week, and >8 hr a day. Final presentation will be held on September 4. By the end of the course, the students not only will know their fellow students very well, they will also lean some of the current neurobiology techniques. In the first week, basic neuroscience techniques, such as perfusion, gross anatomy of the brain, stereotaxic surgery techniques, frozen section, Nissl stain, immunohistochemistry of the brain sections, neuronal culture, and behavior methods will be taught. After this preparatory week, the following weeks will be divided into rotations, in 3-day blocks. There will be 4 rotations. In each station, one or two PI will be in charge. In these stations, there will be labs for calcium and voltage imaging of the culture cell, cellular electrophysiology, field potential recording in the brain slice, extracellular multiple single unit, EMG and EEG recording in free moving rats, and functional brain imaging with animal PET and MRI. Hand-on experiments will be emphasized throughout. The summer training camp is an intensive collaborative lab course held once every year. By the end of the course, the students will know the available neurobiology techniques by heart.

Early Developmental Embryology

Embryology is an old but fascinating subject. From the morphological

observation of chick embryo development to the unravel of the molecular

control of embryonic development in a variety of organisms, we have gone a

long way. However, the more we learn the less we know. It is a miracle to see

how a single cell develop into a fully functional adult. This course is design

to build the ground for students with interest in embryology. We will discuss

the basic principles and molecular controls of embryonic development. In

particular, we will emphasize the progression from immature gametes,

fertilization, cleavage to gastrulation (i.e. the formation of gut). The cell

fate and embryonic axis formation will also be included. The popular

experimental models used by current developmental biologist will also be

examined in detail.

1. Learn the developmental processes, regulatory mechanisms during embryogenesis.

2. Expose to developmental biology research by paper discussion

3. Stimulate scientific thinking by fomulating a proposal

Economic Analysis of Law

This course introduces students to the economic analysis of law as a set of tools for analysing laws and understanding the effect legal rules have on the way people behave. This course also explores the extent to which the principles of economics can be used to explain the workings of the legal system and political institutions. Particular attention is paid to apply economic analysis to contemporaneous law and policy controversies in East Asia.

The course neither presumes nor requires a background in economics.

Teaching/Learning Methodology/Methods:The course is organised as an interactive seminar. Student participation is expected and counted significantly towards the final grade. At the end of the course, students should be able to:

_explain basic economic concepts such as demand-supply, Coarse theorem, public choice, moral hazard, adverse selection etc.

_construct and evaluate basic economic models of the incentive effects of different rules and institutions

_apply economic principles in analysis of legal rules and public policy

_identify and evaluate the various economic justifications for and against in the context of novel legal and policy problems College of Law Main Campus *Restrict to graduate students.
