Hello! And welcome to my Humanities portfolio! In this portfolio I will discuss trauma, define revolution and H(h)umanities, and explore aspects of the course from the past year relating to these topics and others.
The theme of my portfolio for the winter semester was community as it pertained to my life at Davidson College and outside of it. Over the course of the past semester I have adjusted this theme and focussed more on trauma, as seen through photography, and the emotions that images have the ability to instill in an individual. As you will see in my background section, I was a film photography student in highschool. To read more about how my past experience with photography influenced how I looked at pictures in this course, please click ‘background’ in the menu above.
Use the menu bar above to browse through my portfolio at your own leisure. I suggest starting with ‘background’ which includes images that I personally have captured and a little more information on me. Next navigate to ‘Empty Empathy’ (found under ‘writings’). After reading this essay you will see links to the definitions of revolution and H(h)umanities, or you can click here to see them. After reading these definitions feel free to poke around the website in whatever order you chose, at your own leisure.
I would like to acknowledge the four professors that taught units the first semester: President Quillen, Dr. Robb, Dr. Tamura, and Dr. Wills; and the professors that taught units the second semester: Dr. Bory, Dr. Munger, Dr. Ewington, and Dr. Denham. I would also like to acknowledge Dr. Denham for creating and leading this course.
All images used in this portfolio were taken by me, unless stated otherwise.
