Hope you had a good break (so short!), and -- welcome to Honor 177: Biotechnology & Art class!
Please note: We will not meet this Thursday and instead, I would like you to login into the class website, view the assigned introductory lectures and readings and write your first blog. If your schedule permits, I encourage you to go and hear Art Sci center alumni Pinar Yoldas talk about her work that involved collaborations between art & biological sciences. Do include your response to her lecture in your blog if you plan to attend!
Link to final paper:
This is a comprehensive set of all my blogs for the past 10 weeks. I can honestly say that this was one of my favorite and most educational classes I took at UCLA.
My topic for the chapter is "desire", and the overarching theme for the book is "sex". After some research into these two highly related topics, I decided to focus on writing about the cultural suppression of female sexuality and how there is a double standard for expression of sexuality between males and females.
What is love? It seems as if it’s all around us. The number one biggest selling holiday in America is a love holiday, where the sales just this past Valentine’s day reached over $19.7 billion dollars (White, 2016). The Western Society is infatuated with love from the music, movie, and entertainment content. We hear it every song we like, every radio show we listen to, and in every genre of movie, no matter if it’s James Bond or Mr. Beans.
