This is my Humanities Portfolio. Above there are links to the different elements of the project. Most of my portfolio centers around an idea introduced to me by Dr. Amber Johnson’s Justice Fleet, a workshop/museum on wheels that came to visit Davidson several weeks ago. Dr. Johnson is a professor of Communications and Cultural Studies at St. Louis University, and during their time at Davidson, they introduced the concepts of radical forgiveness, using forgiveness as a way to create systemic change and radical inclusion, including as many voices as you can (in some cases even those voices who cause us harm) in order to create space for dialogue regarding identities and injustice. Dr. Johnson’s presentations and the Justice Fleet has really shaped my definition of the Humanities and humanities, and I have attempted to practice radical inclusion and radical forgiveness in my review of Ross Douthat’s lecture at Davidson as well as in my non-textual artifact.
I am very grateful to Amber Johnson for all the work that they do. Please consider donating to the Justice Fleet and supporting their incredible work (click here to learn more about the Justice Fleet).
My definition of Revolution centers around how violence and memory affect how effective and successful a revolution is. My prose element pairs well with this definition as does my revised Project 3.
Also included in this portfolio is my final research paper on the Modern Romanov descendants.
