Web Design

I was introduced to the world of web design through an online course that explained the standards-based languages of the web (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) through technically-oriented design exercises. Assignments and research have exposed me to CSS preprocessors, grid systems, and full-stack JavaScript frameworks that scaffold development and testing. In addition, I'm currently collaborating with students to create a database-backed web application which utilizes a RESTful API. I am still in the testing stage where I am 


Art History 310: African Art & Society

The course explores the concept of the "sacred" in relationship to the arts of sub-Saharan Africa. By focusing on how the visual arts enact and communicate changing concepts of the divine, we will explore key issues regarding the intersection of art and belief. Taking a case studies approach, various African aesthetic expressions of faith and their relationship to local and global political and social systems will be examined. 

What does a focus on "the sacred" reveal about visual culture and what does it conceal? What exactly is "sacred," and how is it expressed and made manifest in the visual field? Is there a difference between visual piety and other practices of faith and spirituality? What is the relationship between identity politics, ideas of religiosity and the arts? How are the sacred arts of Africa interpreted and exhibited in Western institutions?
