HUM205 Writing Project

Throughout this course, you will be learning about ideas,
culture, and the arts as they relate to humanities. Understanding humanities
through the arts, beliefs, customs, practices, values, and behaviors is an
essential part of this course. By attending cultural events or experiencing
them through available forms of media, you will be able to experience the
diverse offerings of culture and artistic expression found in various
communities. Experiencing cultural events outside of the classroom will broaden
your horizons and allow you to gain unique insight into your own community as
well as a broader global perspective of our world’s diverse cultures.
After selecting and experiencing a cultural event, you will
write a four-page paper that relates it to what you have learned about ideas,
culture, and the arts in humanities. You are strongly encouraged to attend a
cultural event in person, but if you are unable to do so, you may experience an
event through available forms of media, such as a learning-based television
program or Internet video. (It is important to see and hear the event, so
please do not simply read an article about it!)
What is the definition of a cultural event?
Cultural events include performances or displays of artistic
expression. Cultural events may also include customs or religious ceremonies
(marriages, rites of passage). You should seek an event representing a culture
different from your own. Listed below are some examples, and if you are in
doubt about whether the event will be suitable, please consult with your
faculty member.
Here are some examples of cultural events with questions to
help guide you through the evaluation process. Please choose one of them for
your paper. Remember, this is a formal paper, so do not list the questions in your
paper. Use appropriate transitions while writing in APA format and include APA
documented research.
Visit an art museum and choose one exhibit or one piece that
you enjoy
Identify the exhibit or piece you have chosen. What is it?

online?

Is it Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, etc.? You can learn more
about these eras and find more to choose from
at:http://www.identifythisart.com/timeline-of-art-history/ (Links to an
external site.)
What is the origin of this artistic movement? What was the
culture in that area like at that time? Consider the ideas, beliefs, and
practices of the people.
Consider the historical context, the events or opinions that
surrounded the origination of the event. Do you think it reflects the culture
of that time, or was it trying to change the way people thought or behaved?
Has the art influenced other forms of art?
Find another artistic event that was happening in another
part of the world at the same time as this art movement and discuss the
differences or similarities in terms of the art and the cultural element
surrounding it.

If you watched a video, would you like to attend it one day? What is it about
this event that appeals to you?
Choose a cultural celebration you have attended (either in
person or online) in its own setting, such as Carnival in Rio de Janiero or The
Hogbetsotso Festival in Ghana.
What is the celebration you attended? How did you
“experience” it? Did you attend in person or watch it online?
How does this celebration reflect the culture of origin?
Explain the overall culture, the ideas, beliefs, and practices of the people.
When did this celebration first begin? Why is it practiced? Has the cultural
event changed since it began?

similar purpose in another part of the world. Do the cultural celebrations have
similarities in presentation (dancing, singing, decorations)? Explain how they are similar and how they
differ.

If you watched a video, would you like to attend it one day? What is it about
this event that appeals to you?
Attend (in person or online) a religious ritual of a culture
that differs from your own. If you practice Christianity, for example,
experience a ritual preformed by another religion, such as Judaism, Islam,
Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Confucianism, Shinto, or Taoism.
Identify the religious ritual you attended. How did you
“experience” it? Did you attend in person or watch it online?
Describe the ritual and explain how it reflects the culture of
origin. Consider the ideas, beliefs, and practices of the people.
What is a brief history of this ritual? Has the cultural
event changed since it began? Have modern ideas influenced how this ritual is
practiced? Explain what may have been the one or more events that influenced
this change? Has the ritual influenced similar rituals practiced by other
cultures? Has it been influenced by other cultures?
Identify one other ritual with similar intent from another
part of the world. (If you chose a wedding, for example, choose another wedding
for comparison.) What similarities does this religious ritual have to the
ritual in another part of the world? Provide an example and explain how they
are similar and how they differ.
If you have attended this event, would you like to go back?
If you watched a video instead of attending in person, would you like to attend
it one day? What is it about this event that appeals to you?
Experience a form of classical entertainment that is
representative of a particular culture and holds meaning for that culture
because of the ideas and beliefs it conveys. The type of entertainment you
should look for will reflect a specific culture and have historical meaning,
such as flamenco dancing, sitar concert, opera, or bagpipe performance.
Identify the form of entertainment. How did you
“experience” it? Did you attend in person or watch it online?
Describe the entertainment as it reflects the culture of
origin. Consider the ideas, beliefs, and practices of the people.
What is the history of this entertainment? Consider the historical context, the events
or opinions that surrounded the origination of this form of entertainment and
the era in which it began. Has the cultural event changed since it began?
