Provide eight examples of ways that the humanities influence creative expression.

Module 01 Content
This module provides abundant examples of how humanities influence creative expression. Everything not found in nature makes up our culture, and all of those cultural artifacts are touched by humanities. Everything we encounter that is made by humans is both part of our culture and part of human expression. This assignment invites you to consider some of the many ways the humanities have shaped creative expression.
Instructions: Create a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation by performing the following:
1. Provide eight examples of ways that the humanities influence creative expression.
2. Cover four or more branches of the humanities (i.e., not all examples of musicians or authors).
3. Each example should have its own slide with a clear, appropriate image and a brief explanation of how that example has been impacted by humanities (example: a slide featuring an image representing the movie Lord of the Rings with a sentence stating “The film LOTR incorporates aspects of the human condition such as discrimination, despair, courage, the feeling of triumph, happiness, internal mental scarring, and loss.”).
4. Include a title slide.
5. Include a reference slide with links to your resources.
6. Proofread your work for spelling and grammar.

Which research role from the participant-observer continuum would you prefer to adopt in your own research projects?

Answer either questions 1, 2, or 3. Be sure to indicate your question.
1. What is field research? Give an example of a research project where you could use field research.
2. Which research role from the participant-observer continuum would you prefer to adopt in your own research projects? What advantages and disadvantages are present in the role you chose?
3. What is ethnography? In ethnographic field research, can there be genuine friendship? Are there boundaries of friendship that should not be crossed?

Complete your initial post (at least 250 words) by 5:00pm and your two responses (at least 100 to 150 words long each) by 6:00pm

Read “Scott, “Gender: A Useful Category of Historical Analysis,” available on Blackboard under “Course Content.” Scott’s 1986 article, a landmark in the history of women and gender, establishes how “gender” is distinct” from “sex” (in other words, “gender” is not a synonym for “women”) and can offer, as she puts it, a “useful category of historical analysis.” Note that this reading is a bit denser and more academic than some of our other readings, so take your time and have a dictionary handy. The lecture briefly contextualizes Scott’s intervention, but if you feel like you need more context for the reading, you might also read a 2014 blog post, “Joan W. Scott’s Critical History of Inequality,” by Clyde Plumauzille (link: https://www.ias.edu/ideas/2014/plumauzille-scott) and a short 2010 retrospective by Scott on the 1986 article (link: https://we.riseup.net/assets/569609/Scott.pdf).
In your initial post, which should be at least 250 words long and should quote at least one line from one of the readings, respond to the reading: why does Scott argue that gender is a “useful category of historical analysis”?

What characteristics or elements of the work stand out to you?

Overview
For this assignment, which supports your final project, you should place yourself in the role of a researcher of human cultures, an anthropologist who is looking from the future back into our world today. You are asked to conduct a thorough analysis of today’s culture via a cultural work, seeking to understand how it represents culture and how it reflects its cultural environment. The work you select here will be used for your analysis in the project. Aside from selecting a work for your project, you will also look to evaluate cultural works of cultures unknown to you.
Prompt
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
Select a cultural work from the world around you, one with cultural or historical interest, and briefly describe it in your submission. This cultural work should meet the following conditions:
It can take any form and be from any physical modality (visual, aural, tactile, and so on).
It should be a form of expression that you might encounter any day, which intrigues you and makes you want to know more about it.
It must be a specific work; for example, instead of choosing the American flag, you might elect to analyze the flag at the capitol building in Washington, DC.
It should be artificial in nature, with aesthetic design elements.
After choosing a cultural work to evaluate, answer the following questions:
What characteristics or elements of the work stand out to you?
What do you think the creator intended to express?
Were they successful?
Next, select a cultural work that meets the conditions above but is from a culture unfamiliar to you. Reflect on the value or meaning of studying cultural works from different cultures.
Evaluate the impact of diversity in the study of the humanities by considering the following:
How does looking through the lens of the humanities affect your understanding of diverse cultural works and the reasons for their creation?
How could learning more about cultural works from other cultures equip you with skills or new perspectives for experiences in your life (work, community, family, and so on)?

Reflection on frank lloyd wright step 1: watch the following three videos on fr

Reflection on Frank Lloyd Wright
Step 1: Watch the following three videos on Frank Lloyd Wright. The first is a basic overview, the second an excerpt of a 1957 interview, and the third is a brief look at one of Wright’s most famous homes, Fallingwater.
Why Frank Lloyd Wright was a Genius Architect (12 min)

Frank Lloyd Wright was on Arrogance (6 min)

Fallingwater – Mill Run, Pennsylvania (5 min)

Step 2: Create a bullet point list reflection on the following:
Top 4 takeaways of what you learned about architecture in general
Top 4 takeaways of what you learned about Frank Lloyd Wright’s work
Top 4 takeaways from what you learned from Frank Lloyd Wright himself – (from listening to him in the interview)
You must write in full and complete sentences. Each bullet point should be 1 to 2 sentences long.
Step 3: Research one additional building the Frank Lloyd Wright designed (You cannot use Fallingwater). Copy and paste a picture into your document. Apply the knowledge that you learned from our three videos to your chosen building, and in a couple of sentences (very brief paragraph) discuss what observations you can make about your building (design elements, etc.)

What was the family structure like?

Assignment Content
This week we are starting our final section of the semester. We will be looking at the idea of the “American Family” as seen through sitcoms. For this discussion board, first define what you think of as the “American Family.” Be sure to be specific in your answer including, how many family members, who they are, what their occupations are, ages, where they live, and so on.
Second, discuss the article “The Way We Wish We Were.” What is Coontz’s thesis, and what does she say we need to be aware of when we think about the “we used to be”?
Finally, what were your first impressions of both The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet and The Donna Reed Show? In The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet what was the main “problem” and how was it finally resolved. What was the family structure like? Who was in charge? How would you describe the relationship between the parents and the children?
In The Donna Reed Show, why did the father get upset? Who appears to be in control of the family? What did Donna try to do to sooth his hurt feelings? Did it work? Why or why not. What was the relationship between the parents and the children like?
You need to be very specific in this post to show the episodes were watched. Answers that are too general will receive a zero.
Be sure to watch both videos BEFORE class.
