Welcome to my Humanities Portfolio! The central theme of the Humes course this year is the Body. The Humanities course and the process of creating this portfolio has challenged me to think about my bodies and other bodies in new ways. While my personal experience and awareness of my body was no greater than in Dr. Bory’s unit on dance, every topic covered in this course could be related to “the body.” In a way, I attempt to connect this whole portfolio to my body, both physically and mentally. While the theme of the course was the body, this portfolio revolves around bodies of knowledge. Specifically, how history as a body is inseparable from the present. Our history is our future.
I recommend beginning with the research paper and collaborative work as those two best exemplify the central theme of this portfolio. I hope you enjoy!
