HU250-1: Assess the relationship between social, political, and cultural developments and artistic expressions.
In this at least 500-word essay, you will reflect upon the ways that social, political, and cultural developments have an impact upon you and your actions.
Your essay may be about how the economy has changed your work, how technology has had an impact on your career pursuits, why you decided to pursue your degree, or other factors. Consider the cultural expectations from co-workers, friends and family, and your response to these expectations. You are not limited to this list, but may think of any external force and your internal action and personal response.
Author Seth Godin gives a definition of art that goes beyond the first impression of someone who paints, draws, or makes music. In fact, you can engage in art whenever you aim to make a difference and share your potential. Thus, you can be an artist in customer service, manual labor, helping professions, or law enforcement.
An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. An artist takes it personallyArt is a personal gift that changes the recipient. The medium does not matter. The intent does. Art is a personal act of courage, something one human does that creates change in another (Godin, 2010, p. 83-84).
On this definition, your artistic expression may be pursuing your education, volunteering in your community, mentoring young people, or being the best parent you can be. The possibilities are broad.
You are welcome to write this paper in first person, since you are writing from your own impressions and experience.
This assessment has four parts.
Part I:You should open with an introduction that gives the scope for your essay, a preview of your main points, and a thesis. Offer a declarative thesis as the final sentence in your introduction, which should sum up for the reader what you will prove in the investigation ahead.
Part II:Identify one social, political, or cultural factor that you believe has an influence on you. Use and cite the readings to clarify how an outside influence can have an impact generally. Then introduce your selected external factor, explain what it is, and why you believe it is a good choice for investigation. Write about the impact of this external factor upon your beliefs, values, or actions. Assess how you may have had to change to adapt, or how you have taken action in the face of external pressures.
Part III:In Godins definition, art is about caring, creating change, and acting courageously. Be sure to use and cite Godins quotation about being an artist in order to give credit and context for his idea. What does being an artist mean for your life in relation to the factor mentioned in Part I? How might you be an artist in response and carry this artistic action into the future? Social, cultural, and political forces may cause you to change, but how have you been able to adapt and create a change that you direct?
Part IV:Your paper should conclude with a substantive and meaningful conclusion that restates the thesis and main points.
