For the past two weeks in humanities we have been prototyping potential ideas for our upcoming sociology exhibition. Everyone got into a group of about four people and came up with an idea for what they think that our exhibition should look like. Then last Friday we looked at everybody's ideas and took a vote. The prototype with the most votes was to have a type of maze through the cycle of socialization made by Bobby Harrow along with the 7 categories of socialization Gender, Race, Economic Class, Sexual Orientation, Ability, Religion, and Age. At the exhibition everyone would start in the beginning or when they were born. They would then get in a line if they identified as male or female. They would then go to Family and get in a line based on religion. This would continue on with different parts of the cycle and different categories.
This exhibition is trying to address what happens if we were to change the standard style of exhibition and seeing if it has a positive or negative impact on the students, teachers, and community members. In a way we are breaking the cycle of socialization for exhibitions.
For this exhibition I am most excited about working in design and construction. I am excited about these because I want to major in Architectural Engineering and I feel like those two groups are the things that will help build my skills for my future.
Reflecting on the last two weeks one suggestion for our groups is to make it groups that work well together and for the most part get along with each other. Just because It is our first Humanities exhibition as a class at a new school
