Explain why you believe humans have a need to express themselves through created artifacts. Specifically, address the following prompts.

  1. Explain why you believe humans have a need to express themselves through created artifacts. Specifically, address the following prompts.
  • Explain the larger human need to express, using the insights you gained from studying your artifact. Suggested approach: As you work to address this prompt, refer back to course content in the first three themes of the course and also consider revisiting Section III and Section V of your Project 1 Artifact Chart. In these sections, you explored the purpose of your selected artifact and how creative expression impacts and is impacted by the people and situations that surround it. Also, consider the questions you posed in Section VI of Project 1 related to expression. In answering this prompt, consider expanding on the initial insights you gained about your artifact to explain the larger human need to express.
  • Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation. Suggested approach: A.) Consider Theme: Introduction to the Humanities, which contains a list and discussion of reasons why artifacts are created and Themes: Introduction to the Humanities and Fundamentals of Human Culture on the “big questions.” Theme: Major Developments in the Humanities gives some examples of these reasons for creative expression during various time periods, naming a number of famous creators in the humanities, all of which might contribute to the discussion of your artifact. Theme: Value of the Humanities for Contemporary Issues talks more specifically about some powerful motives for creating in the humanities as well. Consider applying these concepts here. For instance, in the sample of “All Shook Up” by Otis Blackwell and Elvis Presley at the end of Theme: Fundamentals of Human Culture, the motives of making money, achieving fame, and entertaining were mentioned, among others. Be sure to refer back to course concepts in your response.
  1. Explain how you think the act of human creative expression impacts and is impacted by the culture in which it was created.
  • Explain the larger reciprocal relationship between human creative expression and the culture in which it was created, using the insights you gained from studying your artifact.
  • Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation.
  • Suggested approach: In addition to thinking about your artifact and reviewing the overall course content, consider especially the definition and discussion of culture in Theme: Introduction to the Humanities, learning block 2-3; on how artifacts change as cultures evolve in Theme: Fundamentals of Human Culture; the numerous examples of cultures throughout time in Theme: Major Developments in the Humanities; and the contemporary examples of Theme: Value of the Humanities for Contemporary Issues. Also, review the responses you captured in the artifact chart submitted in any earlier theme (learning block 6-1). Does your previous work help inform your thoughts around how creative expression impacts and is impacted by culture? For instance, in the resources related to “All Shook Up” by Otis Blackwell and Elvis Presley at the end of Theme: Fundamentals of Human Culture, World War II and the unique cultural mix of America were mentioned as having impacted the creation of the artifact, while the song itself influenced American pop culture as a larger part of rock and roll. Check the responses for your own artifact in your chart and extend the insights you gained to explain the broader cultural impacts on creative expression as well as how humanistic artifacts impact the culture they are a part of.
  1. Explain how you believe human creative expression can impact issues we deal with today. Be specific about the issues you are addressing.
  • Use the insights you gained from studying your artifact to explain how creative expression can impact today’s issues.
  • Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation.
  • Suggested approach: In addition to reviewing the overall course content, consider what the humanities have to do with us (Theme: Introduction to the Humanities) and the impact of the humanities on contemporary issues (Theme: Value of the Humanities for Contemporary Issues).
  • Guided by the topics in this theme, determine what some key issues are today. Think about the connections your chosen artifact might have to contemporary issues, and expand the insights you gain to explore how artifacts in general can have an impact on current concerns.
