Finally sorted out my major essays for this semester.
My Classical Mythology only has 2 minor essay, one I’ve already done, but my second is on Artemis, Athene and Aphrodite and which one is more vengeful, BWAHAHAH! Love it!
My Medieval Europe one is discussing the rise of the Cult of the Virgin Mary from the 12th Century. So that’ll be cool! I looove Medieval history and I wanted to do a Masters in it but this course is kinda bringing me down about it. We had to choose our own essay topic and I had no idea. Maybe I’m not cut out to be a true Medievalist?
(I’m only doing 3 classes soo…) My last is Portraiture and Power and I’m doing Boucher portraits of Madame de Pompadour. WOOO! Because I saw the amazing one in Munich Alte Pinakothek in December. Easier to write about art you’ve seen in real life. ;) There’s another one in Melbourne but I don’t know if I can really fly over for that before the essay is due. ;_;
Anywho, that’s what I’m working on for now. Oh, and a visual analysis on Las Meninas by Velasquez after my group presentation on it. ARGH! Maybe I should do Art History Masters?
