    The goal of the class is to identify and evaluate the image of tobacco and the tobacco user in representative selections from the literary, cinematic, and artistic traditions of French-, Italian-, and Spanish-speaking countries. In particular we will seek to trace how that image has evolved since the introduction of tobacco to Europe. Given its evolution and impact, tobacco use must be understood in a broad historical and social context; the course will therefore take into account economic and political factors as well as public health issues.

      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
