This is a research study we carried out collectively in a group for our Research Methods class. Our hypothesis was that using computer or paper based medium for learning would effect memory recall.
A paper I wrote as part of my Asian Studies class called contemporary gender politics in South Asia. Partition of sub-continent India, in what is now known as South Asia, is an important historical event that shaped the course of the relationship between 3 countries and impacted the lives of many people. Thus, my research paper links the historical event to the suffering of the women during the event and how it has shaped contemporary gender politics in modern South Asia.
A term paper I wrote for my art history class. We were instructed to choose one of the weekly theme topics and write a research paper on it using time/location either from the syllabus or choose our own. I did my paper on the era of Mughal Dynasty in the Indian sub-continent.
A short conceptual project that was assignment for my course VISA 110. For this the idea was of to show something that is of a routine or a compilation of sorts and bring out the meaning from it.
A poem written as an inspiration from the songs ‘Fake Love’ and ‘Outro: Tear’ from the band BTS that is all about loving yourself before loving someone else otherwise it will all end in disaster.
A collage piece I made for a short assignment for my VISA course.
A review done on the classic novel 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte. The review is to discuss the differences that arise from changing a novel into film where directors make specific changes in the plot to suit either their audience or film standards of those times.
The research paper is evaluating media coverage done pre-elections and afterwards on the topic of sanctuary cities. Media coverage has an important influence in our lives in informing of issues and shaping our opinions on such issues. I discussed the history of this movement and went on to evaluate on the problems that could be found in the press coverage during Trump's campaign, after elections and after Trump passed his executive order.
This is a short video I created on the concept of appropriation for my Visual Arts class. We were given the task of creating a video comprised entirely of content that was not our own - that we took from other videos and other sources. The project was done with the idea of critiquing on the unrealistic beauty standards that are set by society. I used Adobe Premiere to create it and used clips from different beauty ads, along with a slam poetry audio to accompany it.
