fter reviewing the requirements for Project 1 and Project 2, propose two or three artifacts that you are considering using as a basis for your projects.Consider the following questions before stating your selections. You
do not need to answer all of these questions, but they may guide you in
choosing potential artifacts and providing a rationale for your choices.In your thinking about the disciplines of the humanities (visual
arts, literature, philosophy, and the performing arts), is there are
piece of art, music, architecture, or literature that you would be
interested in learning more about?Is there an object associated with one of the cultures you belong to
that is particularly meaningful to you?Is the artifact created or
worked on by a human being? (If you answered no, it is not an artifact.)Does it have a primarily functional or practical purpose? (If you answered yes, it is not an artifact.)Does it embody the creative expression of ideas? (If you answered
yes, it is an artifact. If you answered no, it is not an artifact.)Identify two to three artifacts you are interested in studying for
Project 1. In two to three sentences, provide a rationale for choosing
the artifacts as potential options for your project.This activity will be graded based on completion.

HUM 100 Project 1 Artifact Chart Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
The enduring relevance of the humanities is that they encourage us to consider a number of “big ideas.” What is culture? How do we go about studying it? What
is the relationship between cultural artifacts and the culture in which they are created? What is the relationship between artists and the creators of “cultural
artifacts” and the things they create? How is human meaning generated through cultural creations? We humans seem driven to express and create in our search
to understand and be understood.
You will complete two related projects in this course that will be turned in separately. In Project 1, you will choose an artifact of human creative expression and
respond to a series of questions about it to complete an artifact chart. In Project 2, you will use the insights gained from completing Project 1 to answer a series
of short-answer responses about human expression.
For Project 1, you will choose an artifact of human creative expression from the world around you. This artifact can take any form and can be from any physical
modality (visual, aural, tactile, etc.). The key is that you choose a form of expression you might experience any day that intrigues you and makes you want to
know more about it. Once you have chosen your artifact, you will respond to the elements below on the provided artifact chart, culminating in questions about
the artifact and what it might represent. You will use the insights you gain here when completing Project 2.
Project 1 will assess the following course outcomes, which you focus on throughout Themes 1 and 2:


Develop questions about fundamental aspects of human culture that inform personal assumptions, beliefs, and values using evidence from cultural
artifacts and systems
Determine fundamental approaches to studying the humanities in addressing questions about how cultural artifacts and the culture they are created in
have influenced each other
Prompt
Choose an artifact from the world around you that you could encounter any day. Use the provided artifact chart to think deeply about the artifact and its
representation of human creative expression. Your responses should be recorded on the artifact chart.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I.
II.
III.
Describe the artifact in detail. For instance, how would you describe it to someone who could not see it?
Choose elements of the artifact that you believe are most important to how you experience it and explain why. For instance, what particularly catches
your senses or makes you want to keep experiencing it? Does the choice of medium impact your experience?
State your opinion on what you believe is the purpose of this artifact and the success of the creator in achieving the purpose. For instance, what
message do you believe the creator is trying to express, and is that message successfully expressed?
IV.
V.
VI.
VII.
Discuss how the artifact reflects the culture (or context) in which it exists. Be sure to address what aspects of culture have relevance for this artifact:
politics, history, religion, social perceptions, technology, media, education, and so on. In other words, how do the artifact and its culture interrelate? For
instance, how would a particular form of body modification reflect the urban culture in which you encountered it?
Use the artifact to discuss how acts of creative expression impact and are impacted by the people and situations that surround it. How might the artifact
and the person who created it have impacted each other? For instance, how might the geographic location where the artifact was made, the materials
used to create the artifact, the medium of the creative process, or the environment where the artifact is displayed influence the creator’s life or future
creative work? How might the artifact and the culture or context in which it was created have impacted each other? For instance, does the artifact add
to the understanding of the culture from which it was created? What contributions does it make to continuing on a dialogue about that culture and the
importance of its artifacts?
Pose questions you have after thinking deeply about this artifact. What more do you want to know regarding:
a. The relationship between human culture and expression?
b. Your personal assumptions about artifacts of this sort and why they exist?
c. How your values have shaped and are shaped by your expression and that of others?
d. The relationship between the possible intent of the creator and your own interpretation of its meaning?
Speculate on how you would go about answering these questions. For instance, what sorts of things would you study about these kinds of artifacts and
their contexts that might begin addressing these questions?

HUM 100 Project 2 Short Answer Responses Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
The enduring relevance of the humanities is that they encourage us to consider a number of “big ideas.” What is culture? How do we go about studying it? What
is the relationship between cultural artifacts and the culture in which they are created? Between artists and the creators of cultural artifacts and the things they
create? How is human meaning generated through cultural creations? We humans seem driven to express and create in our search to understand and be
understood.
In Project 2, you will use the ideas you have studied throughout the course in addition to the insights you have gained from your deep thinking about your
chosen artifact to discuss why humans are driven to express themselves in so many ways. You will draw conclusions about the reciprocal relationship between
forms of expression and the context in which they are created and experienced.
The short answer response assignment will assess the following course outcomes, which you focus on throughout Themes 3 and 4:


Investigate major developments in the humanities for informing critical questions related to human culture and endeavors
Articulate the value of the humanities for their impact on contemporary issues focusing on how humans generate unique meanings
Prompt
Articulate the value of human creative expression to the advancement of human culture. Be sure to state your opinions clearly and specifically and to provide
ample detail from your course materials and the study of your chosen artifact in Project 1. You should address each of these in writing as three separate
explanations. This is not meant to be an essay.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I.
Explain why you believe humans have a need to express themselves through created artifacts.
A. Explain the larger human need to express using the insights you gained from studying your artifact.
B. Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation.
II. Explain how you think the act of human creative expression impacts and is impacted by the culture in which it was created.
A. 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.
B. Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation.
III. Explain how you believe human creative expression can impact issues we deal with today. Be sure to be specific about the issues you are addressing.
A. Use the insights you gained from studying your artifact to explain how creative expression can impact today’s issues.
B. Detail how a person and/or concept encountered in this course has informed your explanation.
