PROMPT: As we have seen from Billie Holiday to Beyonc, protest music is a powerful genre in America. Choose a song that makes a strong social commentary. Write an essay in which you analyze how the artist’s message is conveyed.  Consider how they manipulate language to create this message.

Connotation – emotional definition of word
Tone the accumulated impact of connotation
Theme The subject plus the authors tone on the subject. Ex. Love is difficult when it is not mutually felt.

Thinking of these two definitions, identify words in your song that have additional meaning. Annotate your song to show the strongest connotative language. How does this impact the overall tone of your song?
Underline which lines have the strongest connotation or tone. Considering the tone and the subject of your song, what is the theme the artist creates in the lyrics?
Identify the four strongest lines that help you understand how the authors tone help creates meaning.
Write a 4 paragraph essay explaining how tone helps create theme in your song.

Write a 500-750 word reflection on how media you have seen/used/participate in has depicted Canada and how it has shaped your understanding and knowledge of the country. You will be assessed on your specificity of topic (5 points), how detailed your reflections are (5 points), and for structure and style (5 points). A rubric will be posted.

For this assignment, I would like to see you focus on your personal experience with Canada in the media. The best reflections focus on just one media example and provide detail thoughts on how that piece of media made you think or feel about Canada and then how it compares to your actual lived experience in Canada. Since this assignment is about sticking to your own experience, you are not expected to do any external research or citation.

Please let me know if you have any questions, preferably in this thread so others can see the questions in case they have it too.

These questions can be formulated while reading assigned texts before the lecture, during a lecture about the lecture itself, during the viewing of the recorded lecture, or after viewing the recorded lecture. Below youll find different options for formulating your one-page word question/reflection:
1) Addressacitationfromoneofthetheoreticaltextswevereadfortheweek, and a short (2-3 sentence) description of what you find compelling, interesting, confusing, challenging, confounding, about the passage.
2) Addressatheoreticalconceptpresentedintheweekslecturepresentationthatyoufind compelling, interesting, confusing, challenging, confounding, and would like to introduce for discussion in class. This scene may have some relationship to the citation of the theoretical text youve provided.
3) An anesthetic technique that you saw in artwork or exhibition that was covered in the lecture presentation. Pick one you think has engaged directly with a theoretical concept weve discussed or has been discussed in one of our readings/lectures. Briefly describe the artwork or exhibitions technique and also what kind of relation it might have to the theoretical text we encountered that week.
4)
5)
These should not be simple yes or no question or something that can easily be looked
up on Wikipedia. Rather, your one-page response should reflect your active engagement
with the reading, lecture, or case study artwork/exhibition. These questions are meant to
help you understand concepts in the text that you find difficult, please use them to your
advantage. Consider the following questions to guide your work
a. What is the text, lecture, or artworks main idea?
b. What does it mean?
c. Why does it matter?
As you proceed with these assignments over the course of the quarter, you may compare
and contrast prior theories or artworks covered in one lecture with another. This will prepare you for the final paper assignment.

THE BAROQUE 1600-1700                                                                _____________________

The artists we will look at for the Baroque Period (1600-1700) are Caravaggio and Bernini.

The most significant historical factor that shaped the Baroque style was the Protestant Reformation. The Protestant Reformation was a challenge to the spiritual and political power of the Church in Rome. The Protestants broke away from the Catholic Church because they wanted to reform it. This began in 1517, when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of a Church in Wittenberg, Germany. These theses were a list of statements that challenged certain Church practices largely the sale of indulgences but also other, deeper concerns that Luther had with Church doctrine.
  As a result, the Church held meetings over a period of 18 years (the Council of Trent) to counter the effects of Protestantism. This is known as the Counter-Reformation. Aside from reaffirming Church doctrines, Counter-Reformation initiatives also directed Church officials to control the way artists used religious images. The Church decided it was important to reach their worshippers by evoking emotional empathy.This became the art of the Baroque Period.

1a.) In Caravaggios painting Deposition (or Entombment), discuss some of the Counter Reformation techniques Caravaggio uses.
https://smarthistory.org/caravaggio-deposition/
1b.) Explain how Caravaggio uses both chiaroscuro and tenebrism in this painting:
2.) Berninis Ecstasy of St. Theresa evokes emotional empathy within the viewer. Describe the Cornaro Chapel for which this statue was created; and the many effects Bernini uses to engage his  e `  viewers.
https://smarthistory.org/bernini-ecstasy-of-st-teresa/
3.) Describe the differences between Donatellos David (Early Renaissance), Michelangelos David (High Renaissance), and Berninis David (Counter Reformation/Baroque). Describe each statue and explain how each represents the ideals of the time periods in which they were created.
https://smarthistory.org/donatello-david/
https://smarthistory.org/michelangelo-david/
https://smarthistory.org/bernini-david-2/
Terms:

tenebrism: extreme contrasts of dark and light; extreme use of chiaroscuro; e.g. black background with spot-light effect.

evoke: (in our lesson) to call forth

empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another

visceral: to feel with your gut, rather than your intellect

What does the word Ukiyo-e mean?

For whom were Ukiyo-e prints produced?

What were some of the themes of the Ukiyo-e prints?

What aspects of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints inspired 19th century artists in Europe, such as the Impressionists Mary Cassatt and Edgar?

Realism/ Impressionism / France, 1853-1900                 

1.) In his painting Olympia, Edouard Manet is responding to some of the social issues Paris is experiencing at this moment of time: 1863. Manet is also challenging the traditions of painting in this epoch.

Compare and contrast Manets painting Olympia with the Renaissance painter Titians Venus of Urbino. Provide a detailed description of each painting and explain how Manet is using realism by pointing out elements in his painting that challenge 1) the societal ills of his time and 2) the way painting was judged in Paris at the time by the official art school in Paris (Academie de Beaux Arts and its Salon). https://smarthistory.org/edouard-manet-olympia/ and
https://smarthistory.org/titian-venus-of-urbino/

2.) The Impressionists were a group of artists in France who exhibited together between 1874 and 1886. They experimented with the effects of light and color, which is a hallmark of Impressionism. Aside from the dappled effect of light that Auguste Renoir uses in his painting Le Moulin de la Galette (1876) explain how this work of art exhibits many of the other characteristics of an Impressionist painting. https://smarthistory.org/auguste-renoir-moulin-de-la-galette/

Film: I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK (2006)

Choose one of the following questions to address in your response paper.  (Please note the number of the question that you are responding to at the beginning of your paper.)

1. There are numerous moments of overlap or transformation in Cyborg, where one ordinarily discreet object, individual, role, word, sound, etc. merges with or becomes another thing.  Name one such transformation and discuss its significance in relation to the film as a whole.

2. The director, Park Chan-wook, has said that Cyborg is is not interested [in] the concept of a cure.  Yet we can trace a kind of healing trajectory throughout the film.  What do the main characters achieve by the end of the film, if not a cure?  Is this a happy ending, a tragic outcome, or something else altogether?
