Course Alert: Reproductive Justice and Immigration Politics

Dear readers, we’re launching our newest series today: course alerts, where we post information about upcoming classes being offered by early-career professors and graduate students in the coming semester to raise awareness in our scholarly community and reach out to students.

The first course alert is from Dr. Heather Sinclair, who is offering Babies and Border Walls: Linking Reproductive Justice to Immigration Politics in the Past and Present for enrollment at the University of Texas at El Paso this summer.

Junior-Senior HIST/WS/ANTHO/SOC Seminar

Babies and Border Walls:

Linking Reproductive Justice to Immigration Politics in the Past and Present


Artwork of French artist JR’s on the US-Mexico border wall.

The Republican Party’s recent proposal to fund the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border by taking federal monies from Planned Parenthood makes us ponder the connections between population and its control.   From the Page Act of 1875 to mass deportations of Mexicans and Mexican Americans during the Great Depression to more current debates surrounding birthright citizenship and DACA, we can see that discussions of immigration have long centered on struggles over population, reproduction, race, and fitness for citizenship. Using a Reproductive Justice framework, we will explore in this course links between reproductive rights and immigration that stand at the forefront of US culture and politics today, particularly here in Texas and the border region. We will think critically and historically about struggles over reproduction, population and immigration policy, employing race, gender, class, citizenship and sexuality as central categories of analysis. There will be readings, films, and guest lectures on topics that include the sterilization of immigrant mothers, abortion, midwifery and childbirth on the border, eugenics and immigration policy, racial disparities in infant and maternal mortality, LGBTQ issues, transnational adoption and surrogacy, and more.

To submit your own class for a course alert write the blog coordinators.

    In mathematics, the Peano–Jordan measure (also known as the Jordan content) is an extension of the notion of size (length, area, volume) to shapes more complicated than, for example, a triangle, disk, or parallelepiped.
    It turns out that for a set to have Jordan measure it should be well-behaved in a certain restrictive sense. For this reason, it is now more common to work with the Lebesgue measure, which is an extension of the Jordan measure to a larger class of sets. Historically speaking, the Jordan measure came first, towards the end of the nineteenth century. For historical reasons, the term Jordan measure is now well-established, despite the fact that it is not a true measure in its modern definition, since Jordan-measurable sets do not form a σ-algebra. For example, singleton sets in each have a Jordan measure of 0, while , a countable union of them, is not Jordan-measurable.[1] For this reason, some authors[2] prefer to use the term Jordan content (see the article on content).
    The Peano-Jordan measure is named after its originators, the French mathematician Camille Jordan, and the Italian mathematician Giuseppe Peano.[3

    Consider the discrete optimization problem (which we refer to as Problem A)
    where – is a non-decreasing -order-convex function on a partially set .
    Let be an optimal solution of Problem A, and let be the point obtained by the following iterative procedure [4]:
    which halts on the step if either or is the maximal element of the set (the set contains the zero , as we have stipulated). This point is called

    erential equations, Jordan was led to study the finite subgroups of the general linear group of n × n matrices over the complex numbers. Although there are infinite families of such finite subgroups, Jordan found that they were of a very specific group theoretic structure which he was able to describe.
    Another generalisation, this time of work by Hermite on quadratic forms with integral coefficients, led Jordan to consider the special linear group of n × n matrices of determinant 1 over the complex numbers acting on the vector space of complex polynomials in n indeterminates of degree m.
    Jordan is best remembered today among analysts and topologists for his proof that a simply closed curve divides a plane into exactly two regions, now called the Jordan curve theorem. It was only his increased understanding of mathematical rigour which made him realise that a proof of such a result was necessary. He also originated the concept of functions of bounded variation and is known especially for his definition of the length of a curve. These concepts appears in his Cours d’analyse de l’École Polytechnique first published in three volumes between 1882 and 1887. The second edition appeared in 1893 while the Jordan curve theorem appeared in the third edition of the text which appeared between 1909 and 1915.
    Of course by 1882, when the first volume was published, Jordan was lecturing at the École Polytechnique and the book was written as a text for the students there. In some respects this is a little strange since it is a rigorous analysis text built on top of the attempts to put the topic on a firm foundation begun by Cauchy and given considerable impetus by Weierstrass. However, the courses at the École Polytechnique were supposed to train students to become civil and military engineers and this does not seem to be the approach which one would take trying to teach applications of the calculus to engineers. There had been a tradition of rigorous analysis at the École Polytechnique begun, of course, by Cauchy himself. Jordan was aware that his work was at a level that would be somewhat inappropriate for engineering students for he once said to Lebesgue that he called it “École Polytechnique analysis course” since:-
    … one puts that on the cover to please the publisher…
    Gispert-Chambaz in [7] contrasts the way that topological concepts are treated by Jordan in the first and second editions of the book. In the first edition most of the topological concepts are dealt with in a supplement to Volume 3. However between the editions Jordan had taught more advanced courses on analysis at the Collège de France and this may have influenced him to put set topology right up front in the second edition. In this respect one can see the second edition as setting a tone for analysis textbooks which continues today.
    Among Jordan’s many contributions to analysis we should also mention his generalisation of the criteria for the convergence of a Fourier series.
    The Journal de Mathématiques Pure et Appliquées was a leading mathematical journal and played a very significant part in the development of mathematics throughout the 19th century. It was usually known as the Journal de Liouville since Liouville had founded the journal in 1836. Liouville died in 1882 and in 1885 Jordan became editor of the Journal, a role he kept for over 35 years until his death.

    Euclidean geometry (say Hilbert’s axioms, which are studied in a course on the foundations of geometry; Euclid himself simply proceeded with blind faith that the constructions he performed did not stumble into any holes). And how do we know there is a model of Euclidean geometry? The canonical model for Euclidean geometry is the Cartesian plane consisting of ordered pairs of real numbers, and the verification of the axioms of Euclidean geometry depends on the properties of the real number line. If we follow this route to construct the real numbers from a Euclidean straight line, we find we have traveled in a logical circle. as work prof dr constantin Udriste

    This example uses xx-patent-document as the model for the creation of an example wo-patent-document. In particular the example is a PCT published application (an A1 document) – this PCT example uses some published parts of patent applications and parts created for example purposes only.
    The example markup does not necessarily reflect PCT practice.

    First we start with the bibliographic data required to create the front page (title page) of a PCT patent document:

    certainly appear many and more aspects and circumstances in politics and that must explain and exposed observed by prof dr mircea orasanu in more cases as in case of complete set of class will contain six elements, and this is called partitioning numbers into equivalent classes because it separates (or partitions) all of our numbers into these classes, and any one number in a class is equivalent to any other in the same class. ,or in case of virg magearu lyceum where are necessary we see what we meant above by equivalence, 25 is equivalent to 1 as far as this additionis the kind of thing we all do when we add hours for example, 7 (o’ clock) plus 6 hours is 1 (o’ clock), and all we are really doing is adding hours (modulo 12).

    in more questions appear important problems as observed prof dr mircea orasanu and prof drd horia orasanu in cases of LAGRANGIAN HAMILTONIAN and more and many situations that followed .bur these was considered when I have been led by P fermat dirichlet ,or galois .thare have be not known by prof a vernescu,prof dr st i gheorghitza ,therefore history of these or a, hollinger shown some values of this but no of emerich toth,and then

    an important question is that for Lagrangian and Hamiltonian in case of non holonomic behavior or Optimization of Constraints in that prof dr Constantin Udriste have a contribution and appear as published are now going to tie Coulomb’s Law to Gauss’ Law for the electric field. (In effect, we are going to ‘prove’ Gauss’ Theorem.) We only need to show that it is consistent with either the integral or the point form, as we have already shown the two are equivalent. Here we show that Coulomb’s Law is consistent with the integral form, derivation of this using the point form will be left as a homework problem.
    (This form of Gauss’ Law is slightly different version than what you where shown before, however, as you will see shortly, it is equivalent.) Let us look at a single charge inside an arbitrary volume. The integrand on the left hand side of the equation is
    where is the angle between the E field and the surface normal for an arbitrary surface surrounding a point charge. Examining a picture of the situation we see,
