The Art of Somatopia
This project won second place in the 2016 Signature Course Information Literacy Award. The award recognizes exemplary student work that achieves the learning outcomes of the Signature Course information literacy requirement, that students will be able to create and execute a research strategy, critically evaluate information, and use citations. This paper was nominated by Dr. Chiu-Mi Lai from the Asian Studies Department and was submitted in her Spring 2015 Plan II Signature Course “Landscape Tales in Art, Literature and Geology” (co-taught with David Mohrig, Department of Geological Sciences). This project was chosen because Angela Xie was able to gather and effectively synthesize a diverse set of visual and print sources into both a paper and visual work.
