Description

Your job in these outside text engagements is to find something—a picture, a painting, a story, a poem, a sculpture, a building, a city...conceivably, anything—and to use this outside "text" as a way of elaborating on your understanding of the material we've covered this Module (here, the Enlightenment, obviously). You are meant to analyze the text as a way of talking about the topics we've been exploring: how does the "text" you've selected embody the Enlightenment ideals of X, Y, and Z, and how does it help you to better understand the complex material we've been looking at? What, in particular, do you see in this "text" that speaks to, enacts, or otherwise represents in your eyes the essential values, issues, and history of the Enlightenment? Why did you make this selection in particular?

There are no right or wrong answers, simply your answers—in other words, you are asked here to analyze/interpret the material/text you've chosen in order to communicate to me your grasp of the subject matter we've covered in this Module. Please aim for approximately two paragraphs in your written analysis here.
