C is for Continually Enjoying Going on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Ride in Walt Disney World throughout My Youth 

I feel a sense of elation every time that I go to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, a vacation spot that I, as a young adult, understand portrays pernicious stereotypes that affect the youth of America, but a place where also I have had wonderful aesthetic experiences that I hold onto until this day …

C is for collaboration and compliance and community 

Collaboration is so much on my mind because it is at the center of my research interests. I think we learn best when we can turn to someone safe to ask for help, brainstorm, commiserate, etc. I collaborate with other teachers daily, and, lately, I have become aware of how much I collaborate with my …

C is for Contributing 

There are two major characteristics which distinguish this task from the ones I am usually presented with. Firstly, we often don't get a chance to read each other's work, as most papers are directly submitted to our professors via virtual platforms (where do they end up?). In the chaos which typically distinguishes end-of-semester struggles to …

C is for Catching Up 

So now that we’re nearing the end of the semester, it’s clear that the few here and there posts that were allowed to slip through the cracks have begun to add up. Now, as I do my best to get caught up, I’m reminded of one of our earlier conversations in our course, about the …

C is Contemplative Life 

In objection 2 of article 3 of Summa Theologica: …now teaching is an act of wisdom: for the Philosophyer says (Metaph. I, 1) that “to be able to teach is an indication of knowledge.” Therefore since wisdom or knowledge pertain to the contemplative life, it would seem that teaching also belongs to the contemplative life. …

In Ancient Greek Mythology Cronus was the youngest of the twelve Titans. His mother was Gala “the earth” and his father was Uranus “the sky.” He overthrew his father and took over. With his sister Rhea he had 6 of the 12 Olympian Gods. Then his own son Zeus overthrew him and took over just …

C is for the Curse of Cursive 

C is for the Curse of Cursive No one can write this post anymore. I learned to write in script in third grade. I remember the lessons. I remember the absurdly wide-ruled paper with dashed lines between the solid lines designed to help us practice the letters over and over again. I remember hating it. …

C is for Choice 

1. The freedom to choose is typically hindered by the limit of choices given. When making a work of art, each choice is determined by the choices made before it. If you are painting, the choice of canvas size precedes the choice of color to lay down first. After that, each step relies on the …

C is for Consumerism 

C is for Consumerism Capitalism Commercialization Commodification C is for all the ideas that tell us life is about things; experiences are things, time is a thing, life becomes simply a collection of things. The aesthetics of Capitalism are very appealing;  we can collect our things, use them, and repeat the process. As …

C is for Cannibalism 

I was recently having a conversation with some friends of mine about famous instances of cannibalism. We talked about the Donner Party, which was an instance in the mid 1800s when a group of people were traveling out to settle in California and got stuck in the mountains during the winter and the survivors, in …

C is for Calm. 

C is for calm.  Since moving to New York City this past September, I have been searching tirelessly for the sense of calm I seem to have lost.  Just leaving my apartment, I am barraged by the thousands of noises, sights, and smells vying for my attention.  More than just everyday distractions, there are also …

C is for Collaboration 

This past week I was introduced to Noche Flamenca and The Electric Company, an experimental theatre company based in Vancouver. Both groups move away from more modernist, linear, hierarchical processes of creation and expression into more interactive, dialogical and emergent scenarios, navigating their way out of modernist practices towards the ‘blurry boundaries’ that come with …

C is for Cycles 

Our class discussion on 2/11, concerning the labyrinth as a proto-educational narrative, got me thinking about the ancient perception of education, transformation, and personal growth as inherently cyclical. While there may exist a continual process and goal of upward momentum, there is always a sense of return embedded in that process--the journey upward is less a straight trajectory …

C is for Grotesque 

Roald Dahl was a children's writer that didn't shy from the dark and menacing in his tales. He wrote "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "James and the Giant Peach," "the Fantastic Mr. Fox," and "Matilda," among many others.  Some of his stories like "Matilda" and "the Witches" invoke black humor and grotesque violence against children, kind …

C is for City 

In James Conlon’s essay, “Cities and the Place of Philosophy,” Conlon argues that the presence of the other is the essential quality of the city. Forcing “a continual and inevitable encounter with the foreign” is what distinguishes urban life from rural life (200). The diversity among the inhabitants of a particular city leads to a …

C is for Cave Drawings 

Recently, I watched the documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams when I was sent home sick from work. I decided that if I wasn’t being productive at work I might as well learn something by watching a movie from a running list of art documentaries I keep in order to enhance my art knowledge. The documentary …
