I entered into this class excited to learn about a new facet of Art History that I had not had very much previous exposure. And this class has changed me. Each class period I was confronted with my own personal inadequacies and I have to say that I was not impressed with who I was/am. But this is great, the more I am aware of my own short comings, prejudices and privilege the more I can work to overcome them.
Taking this class has helped me realize more of my end goal for what I want to do in my life. There has not been to much blending in the past between art history and the performing arts. I want to be a part of this fusion, but I want to use my research that I have done on my paper to help bring out this fusion. Ideally in the future there will be an equal representation between all races in theatre, and that it will be a natural thing for art historians and theatre majors to be the same people.
