FAS 201 Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric Overview: Throughout history, humans have represented certain shared themes visually and through the written word. The purpose of the final project in this course is to explore the representation of such shared themes across time and culture. You will consider the persistence of such themes through the ages. To do this, you will employ a comparative approach. A primary method in the study of the humanities, a comparative approach allows us to reflect on a singular element and observe both the similarities and the differences. In employing a comparative approach, we begin to ask the questions necessary to come to an understanding of the objects being compared and the conditions/circumstances of their creation. We learn that each object is a product of its environment and its social, historical, and cultural climate. The final project for this course is the creation of an essay. You will utilize the comparative approach to study two works of art, one visual and one literary, and a common theme they share. This will help you come to an understanding of the meaning conveyed in these works. Finally, you will locate the shared theme in contemporary culture, whether in a work of art, a work of literature, a film, a marketing campaign, or a social construct (e.g., reality television or social media). Doing this will demonstrate how certain themes resonate with various cultures, and it will highlight the persistence of shared themes across time. For Milestone One, you will submit the introduction of your essay. You will choose a pair of works from this list of suggested comparisons, based on a period or theme that interests you. For each work, you will identify the author/artist, the name or title of the work, the date, the cultural origin or period of creation, and current location or physical setting. Next, present your main argument/idea about the relationship between your works and their shared theme. This will become your thesis statement. The components of this milestone will serve as the skeletal framework of your final essay and will help you develop the rest of the required elements. Prompt: Based on your analysis of the shared theme between the two works you chose, compose an introduction for your essay. Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed: Introduction A. For each work, identify the author/artist, the name or title of the work, the date, the cultural origin or period of creation, and the current location or physical setting. B. What is your main argument/idea about the relationship between your selected works and their shared theme? Your overall submission should be professionally articulate. The “Articulation of Response” critical element is not a section of your paper but rather how professional and clear you are in articulating your ideas. (This includes proper formatting and citation of sources.) Guidelines for Submission: Submit a draft of your introduction, including all critical elements. Your paper must be submitted as a 100- to 150-word Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. It must be written in MLA format. Instructor Feedback: This activity uses an integrated rubric in Blackboard. Students can view instructor feedback in the Grade Center. For more information, review these instructions.
