FAU Catalog - Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters
This module explores the political and artistic aims and effects of non-theatrical performance in the twentieth century and contemporary urban environment. It explores how the city is sometimes conceived as a dystopian site of potentially enormous social oppression. And it examines everyday, artistic and activist performative responses to this potential subjection, responses which imagine the city as, instead, a utopian site of personal and social liberation. We contextualise and historicise our analysis through studying various theoretical analyses of urban experience (e.g. Baudelaire, Benjamin, Debord, Lefebvre) as well as a variety of artistic practices (e.g. everyday interventions, activism, public art). Throughout the module, we work to map the ideas and practices we encounter, many originally grounded in Paris, in our own experiences of London. The module concludes by imagining what performance might do next to contest the particular challenges of living in the city now and to explore and exploit its opportunities. Please note that in addition to the weekly 2-hour seminar there will be regular 3-hour field-trips and/or screenings.

The course in Ethics in Business and Finance is concerned with the study of ethical dilemmas arising in business people and financial playersÂ¿ decision making and it aims at offering a pragmatic approach to the analysis of those issues. In fact, the module will intertwine the theoretical foundations of ethics with the legal framework in which companies operate. The main focus would be on corporate governance and in particular the laws related to the provision of financial services (as for example, conflicts of interests and duties to clients) and on those pursuing financial markets integrity (for instance, rules on market manipulation, takeovers and bankruptcy). The study of the foundations of Corporate Social Responsibility will be carried out. Special attention will be given also to self regulatory practices, such as standards of conducts and codes of ethics. Case studies will be presented and discussed with students. At the end of the course students should be able to identify and deal with the ethical dimension of financial activities
