Law, History, and Justice (3) Historical examples, lessons, and precedents are frequently invoked to justify contemporary policy agendas and political views. Controversies over how to interpret constitutional doctrines, principles, and rules always entail fundamental clashes as to how constitutional history should be understood. This course focuses on how judges, legal advocates, and policy-analysts use and abuse history to support their arguments. It focuses on a set of case studies on topics including government corruption, gun rights, presidential power, and racial discrimination. It also explores the politics involved in choosing among different methods of interpretation to advance particular agendas.

Introduction to Policy Analysis (3) This course introduces students to the concepts and role of policy analysis in the public policy process, and to basic frameworks used to analyze public policies. Policy analysis uses tools from economics, sociology, and political science. From economics, market efficiency and market failure that might warrant a policy response is considered. From sociology, the puzzles that equality poses for policy choice are considered. From political science, political choice of policy, relating that choice to efficiency, equality, and electoral outcomes are examined. These concepts are applied to policy areas including education, health, social security, international development, criminal justice, drug policy, the environment, national security, etc. Methods that are used to evaluate the actual impact and consequences of policy choices are also considered.

Politics and Policy in Washington, DC (3) This course gives students an overview of neighborhood development, politics, and policy in the nation's capital, as well as an understanding of the evolution of Washington DC's political structure and its relationship to the city's development trajectory over time. Students explore and interrogate the history of planning and development in Washington, DC from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century, from the 1791 L'Enfant Plan to the 2005 Duke Ellington U Street Plan. The course focuses heavily on how race and politics, both local and federal, have shaped the contours of DC's physical and social landscape. The course has four sequential sections. The first examines the early years and focuses on the creation and implementation of the L'Enfant Plan and the reconstruction period. The second investigates development during the first half of the twentieth century and the emergence of Chocolate City. The third section of the course centers on the 1968 riots, the emergence of Home Rule and the Marion Barry regime. Finally, the class explores current DC redevelopment patterns, in particular the growth of downtown and its relationship to neighborhood gentrification, and the changing demographics of the city, discussing how DC is transforming from Chocolate City into the Cappuccino City.
