As Terry Harpold's young daughter walked through the University of Florida campus, something peculiar caught her eye.
She noticed that the trash cans, which are all separately labeled "landfill," "paper" and "plastic," contained items that did not corresponded with the proper label. She saw people throwing plastic bottles into the can for paper and food trash into the can for plastics. At only 12 years old, she realized what many university students did not: These actions defeat the purpose of having separate containers. "[My daughter] said, 'This isn't just wrong, but it makes it more work for the janitors and the people who pick up the trash,'" Harpold said. Harpold, an associate professor of English, film and media studies at UF, is part of a trend of professors nationwide who are taking initiatives in their classrooms to get university students thinking about sustainable practices. One of the policies he has added to his Spring syllabi is against disposable, plastic water bottles and beverage containers in the classroom, he said. As part of his policy, Harpold, who has been teaching at UF for 15 years, encourages students to purchase electronic editions of assigned texts if available or use copies of print texts that can be returned to circulation. He added he would distribute all his course materials via electronic media. "Enough trees have been sacrificed to university paperwork," the policy states. However, Harpold is not the first professor at UF to adopt a policy like this. Barnett was one of the speakers of the Prairie Project, a seminar in which about a dozen UF faculty members participated in workshops on how to insert sustainability into the curriculum, Harpold said. "It was Cynthia that caused a little light bulb in my head to go off, and I said this is what I have to do, and it's something that I will do for the rest of my classes," Harpold said In addition to including a policy in his syllabi, Harpold has developed other ways to incorporate sustainability studies into his curriculum. He created a new course in which students read fiction shaped by climate change and its consequences for the future, he said. Harpold will begin teaching the course in Spring 2016, and students will have the opportunity to receive a humanities general education credit for it. The university's sustainability studies major and minor directors have also included the course under their core requirements, he said. "I'm not teaching the class to get up on the podium and preach to the audience," he said.


"With the migration of the library from print-centric to digital-centric, you need to have tools that enable you to take advantage of the resources," Terry Harpold, an English professor at UF, told the newspaper.

But for UF professor Terry Harpold, gaming - in the academic world - is serious business."Video games are being played by more people than are going to see movies or renting movies," Harpold said."And so their sheer mass in terms of cultural product makes them worthy of study.They are the 800 pound gorilla in the new media room, so you have to pay attention to them."The study of games and the stories they tell is, according to Harpold, common sense.In fact, he said, the popularity of games may tell us more about ourselves than we may care to realize."The fact that games may be more violent, more sexist, more simple-minded than many of us would like, and yet they are very popular, calls upon us to pay attention to them," he said."Just because they're not exactly high-art doesn't mean that they don't represent society."Harpold, an assistant professor in the UF English department, created and taught a class entitled "The forms of narrative: Narratology of new media" for the Spring 2005 semester."We try to approach video games with the same kind of critical toolbox that I would ask them to approach a law novel or a film," he said.And while video game studies may never be a common subject, Harpold said response from both his department and students has been positive."Lots of universities are now teaching classes focusing on video games," he said.Harpold said the most interesting games are the ones that define genres, rather than follow them, citing titles such as "Super Mario Bros.," "Myst," "Doom" and "Zork."A self-described casual PC gamer, he said one of his favorite games is "The Last Express" by Jordan Mechner.Released in 1997 for the PC and Macintosh, the title is a murder mystery set on the Orient Express.Harpold said the contempt felt towards gaming in today's society reminds him of the negative perceptions people had towards detective fiction and film noir decades ago."Now we understand that many of those are works of art," he said."We consider them to be among the most important objects of their time."But gaming has yet to reach its own renaissance, he added, and may not achieve that goal for some time.But, he said, that time is inevitably coming.
