Primary Instructor:

This class supplements the mini-course, “Pills, Politics, and the Public Good: Ethical Crossroads in the Pharmaceutical Industry.” It is intended for students who wish to delve more deeply into issues presented in that course through small group discussion and research projects supervised by the instructor. This is a class for people with initiative, independence, and a taste for adventure. Students in the research seminar will also serve as discussion leaders for sessions in the mini-course, work with the instructor on aspects of course planning, and present their research projects to the larger class. Sessions will include whole class meetings, individual research consultations, some “field trips,” and the chance to meet with guest speakers in a small group setting. There will be an emphasis on learning how to use fieldwork, informants, internet-based investigation, and other resources to explore questions in depth. Thus, a love of “following leads” will also be essential. During the first half of the term, the class will meet on Tuesdays, 6-8 pm. After Spring Break, we will continue to meet from 6-7, and then join the large mini-course that meets from 7-9. During this period, there will also be individual meetings on research projects.
***PREREQUISITES: Concurrent enrollment in RC IDIV 350.001, "Pills, Politics and the Public Good: Ethical Crossroads in the Pharmaceutical Industry.” As above, 351 meets from 6-8 pm during the first half of the semester. After Spring Break, 351 meets from 6-7 pm and then joins 350 from 7-9 pm. Because of this technicality, students may need a “time override” which they can do on Wolverine Access. However, anyone who has any difficulty registering for both courses should contact Charlie Murphy (clmurph@umich.edu) at the RC.
