HUM 112 Week 4 Assignment 1

Assignment 1: Essay

 

Choose one (1) of the three (3) reading selections from the list of topic choices below. The focus is on brief but important primary source material written by important authors. In each case, the subject relates to the problems of certain people who are oppressed or impoverished.  In each topic, a different genre or approach is adopted to help readers see and perhaps address the problem.   Read the selections as identified with each topic below. Write a four-to-five (4-5) paragraph essay (350 words minimum) which analyzes the work following the list of four things “your paper should cover” given just after the topics.

 

Topic Choices

  • Reading selection of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.  Her works are very popular today, with Austen reading clubs and all types of new books and events based on her ideas.   In 2017 England printed new 10 pound bank notes with her image on them. The chapter should be read in full at https://www.janeausten.org/pride-and-prejudice/chapter-43.asp
  • Reading selection from Samuel Johnson within the current text 21.12 from The Rambler the essay found here http://www.johnsonessays.com/the-idler/sufficiency-english-language/. Johnson was the editor of two coffeehouse magazines, The Rambler (1750–52) and The Idler (1758–60), and the author of Dictionary of the English Language, and subject of one of the first biographies by James Boswell. Johnson overcame numerous illnesses and handicaps.
  • Reading selection from Equiano’s Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, written in 1789.  This selection can be found in chapter 26 of our class text on pp. 901-902 (with background on pp. 893 – 897).   The context is the process of enslavement and then passage across the Atlantic.

The selection should be read in full at http://chnm.gmu.edu/revolution/d/293/with background provided on p. 874 of our class text. You should also look at the revolutionary document of 1789 that she is “correcting”, called Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen(http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/rightsof.asp ). Olympe de Gouge has the status of women as her main concern. The general context is the French Revolution and the attempts to redefine rights and status once one replaces monarchy.

  1. Briefly introduce the writer and the situation that this reading is about.  Identify the genre or nature of the reading. (Who is the author; why did he or she write this piece?)
  2. Using specific examples or lines within the reading, suggest the author’s key views and key aims for the reading audience. (Give a 1-2 paragraph summary of ideas)
  3. Evaluate the author’s strategy and what you see as the work’s likely effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) for the target audience.  If there is any known historical result, discuss that. (Look at the writing style and discuss who would read this)
  4. Evaluate how the reading impacted you.  Identify any analogous situations today, and also key lessons you get from the reading that could be relevant to one’s professional and personal life. (How did you like this?  How do the ideas relate to situations today?)

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards (SWS).  The format is different than others Strayer University courses. Please take a moment to review the SWS documentation for details.

  • Explain how key social, cultural, and artistic contributions contribute to historical changes.

HUM 112 Week 9 Assignment 3 Cultural Activity Report

Due Week 9

Visit a museum or art gallery before the end of Week 9. If you are unable to get to a museum or gallery within your area, then a “create your own museum” assignment can be completed in its place (see Option 2 details below). The museum or gallery should have content that fits our course well.  Here is some information about the museum visit in person:

 

  • It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.
  • If there is a traveling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things.
  • The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art that you see.
  • The most rewarding experiences can come from finding ten (10) works of art by five (5) different artists who intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.

 

Option 1: Visiting a Museum

Write a two to three (2-3) page report (500-750 words) that describes your experience.

    1. Clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the museum or gallery.
    2. Provide specific information and a description of at least ten (10) pieces by a minimum of five (5) different artists.
    3. Provide a summary of the pieces and describe your overall reaction after viewing them.
    4. Use the class text as a reference (additional sources are fine, but not necessary unless required by your content). Your report should include connections you make between things observed in your activity and things learned in the course and text.

 

Option 2: Create and Curate Your Own Art Museum

For this paper, you will select and curate ten (10) works of art to include in your own Art Museum. Use the text and online sources to help you find these works of art. This assignment is an alternative option for visiting a museum or art gallery.

After researching, answer the following questions by writing a two to three (2-3) page report, (750-800 words) that describes your experience.

 

  1. Select ten (10) works of art from at least five (5) artists from different time periods discussed in the text, 18th century to modern times.
  2. Provide a brief description of each piece and a picture if possible, explaining why you chose each piece.
  3. Describe where and how you would display each piece, whether individually or grouped together.
  4. Describe the museum attendees, the admission charges, the advertising programs, and your role as museum founder and curator.  Give your museum a name and a location.
  • Use at least the class text as a reference (additional sources are fine but not necessary unless required by your content). Your report should include connections you make between things observed in your activity and things learned in the course and text.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. (Note: Students can find Strayer Writing Standards materials located in the Additional Resources section of their Student Center within their course shell for reference.)
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context.
  • Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in the study of world cultures.
  • Write clearly and concisely about world cultures using proper writing mechanics.

Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic/organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric.
