Abstract: This paper discusses possible connections between imagined political and legal orders that are represented in contemporary science fiction television series and models of contemporary global governance. The process by which international lawyers, international relations specialists and globalization theorists describe and project the nature of the international order is similar to science fiction in its dependence on piecing together social trends using imagination. Judging from the success and loyal fan base of recent space-oriented science fiction series, science fiction imagination both informs and is informed by American culture. My paper analyzes the most influential science fiction series that were produced primarily for the U.S. market in the past forty years to address two questions. First, to what extent are popular science fiction’s visions of interplanetary law and governance similar and potentially enriching to theories of global order? Second, what, if any, is the basic trend in the connection between televised science fiction and Americans’ understanding of societies other then their own? In short, my paper aims to depict trends in globalization theory and American attitudes towards global order through the novel prism of popular science fiction. I consider several Star Trek series, as well as Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, Farscape and Andromeda. I conclude that these series indeed contribute to expanded ways of conceptualizing global order, but also reflect a narrowing of vision over time about the possibilities of global change which is consistent with broader American foreign policy trends.

Abstract: Founded in 1982, the Mexican Migration Project (MMP) has annually administered ethnosurveys to randomly sampled households in various communities in Mexico since 1987. In 1998, the Latin American Migration Project (LAMP) was born. For both projects, each community yields approximately 200 surveyed households in the home country, as well as 10 to 20 households of community members living in the U.S. Responses are converted to electronic format and compiled to form five unique data sets. PERS file contains socioeconomic information for each household member, including basic measures of domestic and international migration. MIG file contains detailed border-crossing, measures of migratory experience of family of origin, extended family and friends, and the social and economic characteristics of the last U.S. trip for each household head. HOUSE file contains measures of household composition and amenities, as well as data about businesses, land, property, vehicles, and livestock. LIFE and SPOUSE files are labor histories, and each record represents a person-year detailing labor force, family/household formation, and cumulative U.S. experience. In addition, we offer the community file with measures of infrastructure, social resources, public services, labor force participation, and education. Currently, the MMP contains 128 communities, while the LAMP includes multiple communities surveyed in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, Haiti, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

Abstract: St. Norbert College has a writing across the curriculum requirement, where all general education courses must have a writing component. The writing requirement is follows a developmental model; students are given an opportunity to revise and improve their work. When I first began assigning writing projects in my calculus and precalculus courses, I would spend laborious hours writing comments on rough drafts, only to have many of them ignored on the final drafts. I found that if I give feedback in person they were much more likely to improve their papers. Additionally, I found the final drafts much easier and more fulfilling to grade.

Typically I assign a major group project, but I have recently been using a short individual project as a means of choosing groups. I put students together in writing groups whose papers have similar qualities, for example, attention to detail, overall creativity, or similar mathematical errors. Students have reported high levels of satisfaction with groups chosen this way. The first phase allows students to get used to being graded with a rubric, and practice takes away some of the anxiety of having to write a math paper, and allows me to build on the skills they acquire by doing a small project first.

The overall quality of the papers that I have received has consistently risen using these two methods. Students come in dreading having to write a math class, but often self report that the writing project was their favorite aspect of the course.
