SUBDOMAIN 112.2 DISCIPLINES & CULTURAL CONTEXT OF THE HUMANITIES
Competency 112.2.1: Connections Across Disciplines The graduate recognizes and analyzes relationships within the disciplines of the humanities and how themes and concepts connect across individual disciplines of the humanities.
Competency 112.2.2: Humanities and Culture The graduate recognizes and analyzes the interaction and integration of the humanities with cultures, and how specified cultural attitudes change over time.
Introduction:
a?Knowledgeable interaction with works of art makes life better: We see more of what can be seen, and we hear more of what can be heard. Our entire existence grows richer and deepera? (Sporre, 2009, p. 2).
From your studies, you have seen how culture, societal norms, belief systems, and past experiences all affect the way people view the world. Learning about different methods of investigating the world sheds light on peopleas personal approaches and also helps people understand the overall human experience. Whether analytical skills are applied to assess a task at work, or a humanistic point of view is used to help see an issue from another perspective, these methods of looking at the world help people to become more aware of their world, provide and shape a frame of reference that is deeper and more meaningful, and give insight into their own abilities and perceptions.
In this task, you will analyze and interpret three creative works from three separate disciplines of the humanities using methods of subjective and objective analysis. These standard methods of analysis allow you to view and interpret works from the humanities systematically, assess how meaning is constructed and imparted to a viewer or audience, and develop our analytical and critical thinking skills. You will communicate your thoughts through a multimedia presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote). While the content of your presentation will concern analyzing, interpreting, comparing, and contrasting three creative works from separate disciplines, your overarching goal will be to explain how the three artworks you analyze demonstrate the value of the humanities in life in meaningful ways.
Scenario:
The organization you work for has asked you to attend a conference entitled a?The Importance of Humanities in the Professionsa? and give a presentation about why being knowledgeable about the humanities is valuable in regards to your profession. Your organization would like you to develop a multimedia presentation in which you analyze three creative works from three separate disciplines in the humanities and connect these works to your chosen profession under one common theme.
First you must choose one work of literature from a given list. Once you have selected a literary work, you will need to select two works from separate disciplines in the humanities fall under the same thematic umbrella as the literary work you have selected. Your presentation will show how all three works connect to the one theme that you have chosen, and how that theme connects to your profession.
The two nonliterary works you select must come from the following disciplines: two-dimensional visual art (e.g., painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, or collage), music or film. You should choose works that appeal to you personally, are striking to you in some way, and/or evoke a strong response in you. In the presentation, you will want to make it
clear to conference participants how these works show how knowledge of the humanities can enhance performance in your profession, your perceptions of the human experience, and your understanding of your profession and chosen roles in life.
When selecting a literary work and two nonliterary works, look for common themes addressed in the works. For example, if you are a science teacher or becoming a science teacher, you could choose a novel, a film, and a painting that deal with the theme of humankindas commitment to scientific progress. Then, you will need to consider how the theme surfaces in the novel. You will then want to consider how the film, which has cinematic elements, helps the viewer to understand the theme of scientific progress differently from the novel and the painting. What different techniques has the painter used to address this same theme? How is this different from how the theme is treated in the novel?
Note: Your multimedia presentation should contain 25 to 30 slides. While many presentations tend to be brief to allow speakers to fill in other details, your presentation should be able to stand alone as a self-contained presentation. It should demonstrate the depth of the analysis and reflection that you have done. Your challenge will be to communicate your points through a series of clear, focused, and concise slides that represent your knowledge and convey your unique analytical points and insights.
