Summer 2005 Canadian Studies Courses

North American Politics: United States and Canada

William Green, Professor of Government
Morehead State University, w.green@morehead-st.edu

North American Politics will examine two nations born from the American Revolution and sharing the longest undefended border in the world. The course will look north to Canada, our largest trading partner, as it looks south at us: a country ten times its population whose culture exercises an hydraulic effect on its way of life. To explore these two distinct, but intimately-related nations which share the North American continent, this course will focus on the context of their politics, the nature of their constitutions, participation in their political lives, the structure of their governments, and the leading domestic and international issues in the life of these two post-industrial democratic republics.

North American Politics will originate from Morehead State University, use the MSU Blackboard server, and be taught by William Green, Professor of Government at MSU.

Sustainable Cities in Canada and the United States / Urban Sustainability in North America

Ernest J. Yanarella, Professor of Political Science
University of Kentucky, ejyana@email.uky.edu

The specter of global warming and climate change and an Earth populated with 10 billion people in sprawling, teeming cities have kindled the dream in North America and around the world of building sustainable cities working in harmony with nature. In this course, we will explore the evolution of blueprints for sustainable cities in Canada and the United States and will focus our attention on the meaning of sustainability, the challenge of growth-oriented economic national politics and policies, the promotion of local and national sustainability policies, the fledgling efforts by towns and cities to institute local sustainability programs, and the stakes and prospects for achieving sustainable development.

Sustainable Cities in Canada and the United State / Urban Sustainability in North America will originate from the University of Kentucky, use the UK Blackboard server and electronic library reserves, and be taught by Ernest J.
