Yanomami 1of4 GCSE Humanities The Yanomami tribe of the Amazon Rainforest are an important case study for the Culture and Beliefs module of GCSE Humanities. The Yanomami are a tribe who lived until recently without contact with the outside world. Now their world is threatened by gold miners, their pollution, their way of life and their diseases. The Yanomami norms and values are very different to those we hold in the developed world, as the video shows, young boys play with bows and arrows to learn how to hunt, and an entire village lives together in one Maloka or communal hut.

Humanities (Film Project) Just a short film my friends and I had to put together for a class project. It's about one of the ghost stories here on campus. It was a lot of fun, and inspired me to do more shooting, but without restriction. I know that the volume changes from time to time. I did my best to fix that.

Snow, Two Cultures and the Science Wars Humanities Forum lecture at UMBC by Steve Fuller, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick, UK. The contest for authority to speak about science and technology, called the science wars, has often been framed in terms of CP Snows ***ysis. Fuller argues that few recent commentators are familiar with the historical trajectory that transports us from Snows earlier concerns to concerns of the present. He focuses on the curious alignments that have transpired over the course of the Science Wars. Note from Steve Fuller: "Also after the talk last night, I realized that I misspoke in the final question (which I think was asked by one of your deans), concerning the parallels between economic arguments for blue-skies science and for the arts. This was a really good point - but I botched it by giving the name of the wrong economist. It wasn't James Tobin (who happened to be a jazz aficionado!) but William Baumol. There's actually a handbook on the topic:

EO Wilson: Synergism Between Science and the Humanities Scientist and author Edward O. Wilson, draws on studies from a broad spectrum of disciplines to show how various fields of inquiry, and especially the humanities and sciences, intersect with each other.

Ancient Rome VI - The Conflict of the Orders This is the sixth of many chapters in History with a Twist of Lime's look on "The Historical History of Ancient Rome." This chapter deals with the issue between the two classes, or orders, in the society of the Roman Republic: the noble patricians and the not-so-noble plebeians. It will look into the early restrictions of plebeian involvement of the Roman government, and how those limitations slowly dissolved through the use of rather cheap tricks, like running away from home and using constitutional loopholes to prevent the patricians from doing anything productive until they got their way. We also see how the solution of the Conflict of the Orders only led to more socio-economic difficulties in Rome, and foreshadows one of the main reasons for the eventual fall of the Republic. For a detailed list of what the Twelve Tables consisted of, check out this website: www.roman- As this is one of many chapters being produced over this project, I would invite you to watch the other chapters dealing with the history of Ancient Rome.

Risk and Humanities Darwin College Lecture Series 2010. "Risk and Humanities". Professor Mary Beard (Cambridge). Was there risk before modernity? This lecture explores how we might tell the ancient history of risk—from oracles (an ancient form of risk assessment) through gambling and agricultural strategies to the parade of Luck and Chance in sculptural form. In Greece and Rome (and other pre modern societies) is it misleading to think in terms of risk? Is it more helpful to ask simply, What did people worry about?—a question to which we find some surprising answers. At the same time, there is another agenda underlying this lecture: an exploration of the risks facing research and teaching in the Humanities. What do academics need to be worried about today and for the future? The lecture will include the first consultation of the Oracles of Astrampsychus for many centuries. Biography Mary Beard is one of Britains best-known Classicists Fellow of Newnham College and a distinguished Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge where she has taught for the last 25 years. She has written numerous books on the Ancient World, including the 2008 Wolfson Prize-winner, Pompeii: The Life of a Roman Town which portrays a vivid account of life in Pompeii in all its aspects from food to *** to politics.

Odysseus, Thy Hero This was made for my Humanities class. We read the story and watched the movie, and then the teacher assigned us a project. The criteria: Must involve anything about Homer's Odyssey, and it can be anything you want. (diorama, small play, wood carving, painting, etc) All movies turned in get an automatic A. (This is were i leaped for joy xD) We were allowed to have multiple people in our groups, so I enlisted the help of my two friends Arrow and Red to help out and voice act. Took me two weeks of pure dedication, in which I used all my free time to get this 272 frame animation finished by February 16th. (I almost died, but with the help of soda and other forms of caffeine, I made it to the due date!) I've turned it in and my teacher said (and I quote): "That was possible the best project I've ever had turned into me!" lol I dun like to brag but...it was teh bestest! xD Especially since almost half the class took only 20 minutes on their projects, and the other half didn't even do it. So sad...Well, I gots a super A+ and Red and Arrow got As. w00ts! :D In retrospect, this video is pretty much a spoof of the movie made for the Odyssey where Odysseus is imprisoned on Calypso's island for 7 years because she loves him. Arrow, Red, and I all thought that Calypso sounds a bit...stlakerish? Lol so we came up with this. (In one part of the movie, Odysseus tries to escape but the nymphs rush out and grab him in PERFECT coordination. We came to the conclusion that Calypso made them ...

The Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities - John Soluri Lecture The Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities - John Soluri LectureTitle: Something Fishy: Blue Revolutions, Sustainability, and Environmental History (Cultures of Green) Speaker: John Slouri, PhD Location: Clark Hall Room 309 on the campus of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio Date: April 1, 2010 Description Since 1980, aquaculture industries have expanded rapidly in Latin America from Mexican mangroves to the fjords of Patagonia. What this potential revolution in food production means for Latin America's economies and ecosystems is the subject of a fierce debate that revolves around the idea of sustainability: advocates see aquaculture as an industry that reduces pressures on ocean fisheries while creating food, livelihoods, and export revenues. Critics cite marine pollution, the introduction of exotic species, and the creation of hazardous work conditions as major problems. This talk will demonstrate how the interdisciplinary perspectives of environmental history can help us evaluate the promise and peril of aquaculture in Latin America.
