CHANGE OF PROGRAM, WITHDRAWAL
It is the policy of the Office of Residential Programs at Hofstra University to investigate any report of a missing student living in one of the University’s residence halls. All students residing in a campus residence hall are requested to complete a Confidential Contact Information form, available upon check-in to their residence hall. The resident student is asked to identify the name and contact number of the individual(s) to be contacted in the event the student is determined to be missing, as set forth below. This contact information will be registered confidentially and may not be disclosed, except to law enforcement personnel in furtherance of a missing person investigation and authorized Hofstra University officials, including Public Safety officers. Hofstra understands that students may make arrangements to stay outside of the residential halls, and as such, the location of students in the halls is not monitored by Residential Assistants or other University staff. If a student intends to leave his or her residence hall for an extended period of time, the student is strongly encouraged to advise the residence hall staff before leaving, to avoid the student being reported “missing.” If, however, there is reason to believe a resident student is missing, all reasonable efforts will be made to locate the student to determine his or her state of health and well-being. These efforts, which are done in conjunction with the Department of Public Safety, include, but are not limited to, checking the student’s room, speaking with friends and/ or roommates, checking ID access, locating the resident student’s vehicle and calling the student’s cell phone number or other known contact information. Where a student has been missing for 24 hours, students, employees, or other individuals should make a report to the Office of Residential Programs, the Dean of Students Office, or the Department of Public Safety. All missing student reports will be referred immediately to the Department of Public Safety. If upon investigation by the Department of Public Safety, the resident student is determined missing, staff from Public Safety and/or Student Affairs will contact the resident’s designated “Confidential Contact” within 24 hours. For any resident student under the age of 18, Hofstra will notify a custodial parent or guardian, in addition to any other individual designated on the Confidential Contact Information form, within 24 hours after the time the resident student is determined to be missing by the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety will continue to investigate, utilizing established investigative procedures in collaboration with staff from Residential Programs, other campus offices and local law enforcement agencies. Where a Confidential Contact cannot be located or has not been assigned, Public Safety will inform the appropriate law enforcement agency and/or make contact with the student’s parents or legal guardian. In all cases where the Department of Public Safety determines that a student is missing, Public Safety will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency within 24 hours of that determination.
Change of program may be made during the first three days of the session for courses scheduled for three weeks. For those courses scheduled for shorter periods, change of program may be made no later than the second day of the session. The last day to drop a course is January 6, 2012. The first day of withdrawal (W grade) is January 7, 2012. SEMESTER ATTENDANCE CONFIRMATION
At the beginning of each semester, students are expected to log on to their Hofstra portal to confirm semester attendance. Failure to confirm attendance within the first three (3) weeks of class during a fall or spring semester may result in the inability to access certain areas on the portal (e.g., Blackboard). For terms that are of shorter duration (e.g., January, summer) the corresponding deadlines will be available online. All registered students may withdraw from courses before classes begin. Students who wish to withdraw from the January Session must complete the Withdrawal/Academic Leave Form found on the Hofstra portal. If you are unable to access the portal and are an undergraduate student, please call the Center for University Advisement at 516-463-6770. Graduate students need to call the Office of Graduate Admissions at 516-463-4723 (see W Grade in the online Undergraduate or Graduate Studies Bulletin). Note: Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal, and does not relieve the student of his or her financial obligation, or entitle the student to a refund. REPEATED COURSE
The last day to file the Repeated Course Request is January 6, 2012. PASS/D+/D/FAIL OPTION
The student has sole discretion to elect this option for the first one-third of the course (deadline is January 6, 2012). VETERANS

Ethnographic research provides this course’s focus on varied forms of humor cross culturally—from joking behavior and verbal dueling to mythological characters and stories as well as satire and caricature and “ritual play” and performance, including contemporary sitcoms. To examine the roles of humor in the lives of people, particular attention encompasses the specific context of a culture in order to explain how humor affects people’s lives and humor’s meaning to them. Humor’s communicative and expressive functions are explored in examining a range of topics from politics and resistance to class, race and gender to values and religious belief. The contribution of anthropology to an interdisciplinary body of scholarly ideas about humor, laughter, and the comic will emerge from this study, and students will undertake short projects on in the United States or another culture of their choice. This year the instructor will focus on humor traditions among Native Americans (Apache), Japan and Africa.

192Z. American Killers, American Saints 3 s.h. 10165: MTWRF 5:30-9:15 p.m.; Fichtelberg; 135 Gallon Wing Much like a common language or heritage, violence is essential to social order. Governments enforce laws by threatening punishment; nations impose their will by preparing for war. Yet violence, anthropologists tell us, can also serve sacred ends, promote faith, or draw believers closer to God. Americans have long understood this paradox. Our culture has used violence to unify and inspire, even as violent acts have scarred and harmed. This course will explore the social uses of violence—its beauty and terror, its senselessness and serious purpose—by examining great American texts. We will range widely from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. Beginning with an Indian captivity narrative by Mary Rowlandson, we will consider the turbulent period ending in civil war, reflected in the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, the poetry of Walt Whitman, and Stephen Crane’s great novel, “The Red Badge of Courage.” Texts in the twentieth century include Ernest Hemingway’s “In Our Time” and Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood.” We will also view two films, Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York” and Terrence Malick’s “Badlands.” Throughout the course we will explore the mysterious process that renders even the greatest villains reflections of our collective hopes and fears. Written requirements include two response papers and one longer essay.

“She is the Shakespeare of cities—unchallenged, incomparable, and beyond envy.” –John Addington Symonds
“Another Athens shall arise. And to remoter time Bequeath, like sunset to the skies, The splendour of its prime;” –Percy Bysshe Shelley, Hellas (1822) The city of Athens, sprawling from the foot of the acropolis, whose crown is the temple of Athena, more famously known as the Parthenon, has beckoned to travelers since its rise as the founding home of democracy in the fifth century B.C. Athens and the island of Crete are the main sites of a three-week odyssey offered by the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Comparative Literature and Languages in January 2012. Hofstra University provides a curriculum-related opportunity for students to interact with the landscape and environment that has shaped the foundational principles, ethics and aesthetics of their own culture.

Why Athens? • Walk the sunny palm, orange, and cypress tree-lined streets that Socrates, Plato and Aristotle once walked. • Enjoy the balmy weather, visit surrounding museums, have long lunches, and share nightly meals and make new friends. • Visit the birthplace of democracy and view parliament and the Acropolis from your hotel. • Experience the culture that a modern European city with a rich history and landscape can offer.
