When we look at post-war chinese films, we see the emergence of two types of films.

When we look at post-war Chinese films, we see the emergence of two types of films. On the one hand, in the film Crows and Sparrows (Wuya yu maqe 乌鸦与麻雀, 1949), we see the realistic portrayal of social reality along with an urgent sense of political intervention and a focus on the masses. On the other hand, in a film like Spring in a Small Town (Xiaocheng zhi chun 小城之春, 1948), we see a more lyrical portrayal of characters’ inner worlds and feelings. Describe these different cinematic modes by discussing these two films in a comparative framework. Focus closely on key themes, cinematic techniques, and messages each film conveys.
1. Construct a clear, well-rounded thesis / argument.
2. Analyze and discuss TWO (2) films within the framework of your central thesis /
argument.
3 . Integrate and engage ideas in at least ONE (1) secondary source of relevant
scholarship or theory. Be sure to accurately cite the author and title of the text(s)
you are referring to.
4. Follow correct formatting guidelines (MLA or Chicago Manual of Style) for all
references and bibliography (list of works cited).

Explain what the true monuments men were tasked with doing and provide one specific example of an artifact they are known to have reclaimed.

Cultural Heritage and the Humanities This week, we are discovering who we are beyond our individual identities in order to better understand ourselves as cultural beings, and we are gaining a better understanding of how the humanities play a role in cultural expression. In this assignment, we will be exploring the importance of tangible cultural heritage. The Monuments Men gained popularity with the release of the 2014 movie of the same name. This movie was a fictionalized account of real people who risked their lives to save the tangible cultural heritage of Europe during WWII. They did not do this as an independent group; they were recruited and ordered by the United States Government. This tells us something about the importance of their mission and how works of art are valued as a representation of human culture and history, worthy of preserving and protecting, even in times of great danger. As Irina Bokova, former Director General of UNESCO once said, “There is no choice between protecting human lives and safeguarding the dignity of a people through its culture. Both must be protected, as the one and the same thing—there is no culture without people and no society without culture.” Before you begin, be sure to review the following resources: Historical Perspective: The Rape of Europa https://www.pbs.org/therapeofeuropa/about/
The True Story of the Monuments Men https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/true-story-monuments-men-180949569/#GCMzbT0yOTibQrrl.99

Instructions
Once you have finished, answer the following questions by listing them on a document and thoroughly answering them in paragraph format. You must include at least one resource in addition to the assignment readings. Cite all resources used and include internal citations and a reference list per APA requirements. See the APA LibGuide for more information about APA documentation. 1. Based on what you have learned in class this week, define tangible cultural heritage and write a brief summary of why saving tangible cultural heritage matters. 2. Explain what the true Monuments Men were tasked with doing and provide one specific example of an artifact they are known to have reclaimed. In regards to the artifact you choose, be sure to provide the following information with details from the research:
What was the artifact?
Where was the artifact originally from?
Why did the artifact matter? (Consider its overall significance and its cultural significance.) 3. Read through the List of World Heritage in Danger at http://whc.unesco.org/en/danger/ and choose one contemporary example of a tangible cultural heritage in danger.
Note: You must choose a tangible cultural heritage site. To do this, look for a red diamond next to the area on the list as seen on the Legend: (Legend shown in attachment)
a. State the cultural site you have chosen for #3 and briefly explain its cultural significance. Why is the site endangered? Based on what you have learned, why is it important to protect it?

Do not turn in a transcript of the interview.

Interview with a Humanities Professional
If you are unable to go to a cultural venue for any reason,
this is a good option to choose since you can conduct your interview in person, through video
conferencing or through email. Or, this might be a good option for you if you already know of
someone to interview or are interested in a one-on-one conversation.
For this option, conduct an
interview with a professional who does something in the Humanities. (see instructions attached)
Examples of people to interview for this assignment might include:
local religious leaders that are not the same religion as you if you practice, such as the imam of a mosque, a rabbi of a synagogue, a priest from a Hindu temple.
a local professor in a Humanities field
a local visual artist, musician, or member of a band who is somewhat well known
the curator of a local art museum or the archivist at an art museum
the educational outreach coordinator or the director of a local community arts center
• a local published author or book illustrator
a director from a local theater, a member of a local improv group, or an actor who performs regularly in community theater productions
When you have a conversation with this person, you can ask specific questions, or you can let the conversation itself lead you to the questions you want to ask. Try to focus, however, on talking about the field of the Humanities the person is in and what they do, and try to learn something new.
Using information from your interview, write a 850-1000 word report that summarizes what you learned during your interview. Do not turn in a transcript of the interview.
Please try to keep your paper to 1000 words or less.
Your report should include the following.
Name and position of the person. If they are not comfortable providing this, please state this and provide some general background information about the person instead.
A description of the person’s connection to the Humanities–what are they (author, priest, director, artist etc.) including how long they have been involved with the Humanities, their training (if any) and how they got involved with the Humanities.
A description of one aspect of the interview that you found especially interesting. This is going to come from the conversation you have and the questions you ask. For example, you might write a particular piece of work by this person that struck you if they are an artist. You might write about the person’s responsibilities as an art museum curator. You might talk about the challenges of a religious leader’s responsibilities of working with many kinds of people.
A specific connection between something you learned in the interview to one specific piece of information from the class. For example, if you spoke to the lighting director of a community theater, you may have learned how they use colored lights on the stage. Then you can connect this to some of the information about color theory in the resources on Visual Arts.
Highlight the connection you are making between your interview and the course material by underlining or bolding a small part of the section where you are making your connection.
Include a quote or paraphrase from the learning resources for the information you are using from class to connect to the interview.
A reflection on the relevance of your interview experience to your everyday life, to the community or locality, or to Humanities in general. Think about how the experience engaged your feelings or emotions, how the experience taught you something you really didn’t know about the Humanities, and how the experience showed you the relevance of the Humanities in the world. You can also consider what this interview informed you about yourself and human beings in general.
In text citations as needed and a bibliography with MLA citations for any references you used.
One of your bibliography entries should be for the interview itself.
