Humanities 104: Conflicts and Connections; Revolution has been a transformative course over my first year at Davidson. I have been challenged to think, read and write critically. My portfolio here showcases my work throughout the year, ranging from a revised version of the first paper I wrote in the class to a video I edited of footage I took on our study trip to South Carolina. I am particularly indebted to Dr. Denham, Dr. Zamir, and Dr. Ewington for all their advice and feedback this year. I am also indebted to Zoe Harrison and all of my peer review partners for helping me find my way out of my rough drafts.
