Bio

I value constructive criticism and the growth that is compounded from it. I love putting together visual components just as Sherlock Holmes puts together a case. Piecing together different realms is immensely satisfying when the final centerpiece, influence, or detail is integrated. Leaving the mentor, disciple, colleague, friend, or fan speechless is a hobby for me. I breathe to take the breath of the consumer away. This thinking comes from my deep appreciation for authentic creativity, dedication to the craft, and understanding the layers of artistry. I am moved by the grit of the guitar, the passion under the pen, aestheticism of the art, and the memory of the moment. I am a believer of trusting your society. Embracing it, not rejecting it. Everyone has the ability to contribute to our cultures and with each contribution global compassion is little closer to achievement. A cycle of individual and collective growth, is the only thing I want to sell.

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

COMD Communication Design Internship Coordination Site

This site is designed to help you find fieldwork/study situations of approximately eight hours per week at an internship site approved by the Department Internship instructor such as an advertising agency, graphic design firm, corporate design office, publications art department, photography or illustration studio, TV or multimedia production company. Students will be required to keep a learning journal of their internship in the form of a blog using Openlab. A portion of the class will be devoted to presenting and sharing experiences with classmates. Students will learn how to assess their talents, update their resume, and promote themselves and their work through social networks. Students will be required to setup and maintain at least two social media networks such as: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The instructors for this class are there as mentors if you have not yet found an internship before registering for the course. However, the instructors do not find an internship placement for you. It is your responsibility to find a position that fits your personal career path and help you transition to full time employment upon leaving the halls of CityTech. Ideally, you will use this site to find an internship the semester before taking the COMD 4900 class.

AFR2402ID The Heritage of Imperialism Spring 2019

AFR2402ID The Heritage of Imperialism Spring 2019

This course offers an examination of the thought, structure, operation and results of imperialism in human history generally, and in the 19th/21st centuries in particular. European/American imperialism in the non-white areas of the world: the role of the Industrial Revolution; the imposition of Western European institutions on indigenous peoples of Africa, Asia, North/South America; colonialism; attempts by these people to reestablish autonomous sociological and cultural systems. Prerequisite: ENG 1101 and any AFR course During the course, students will be taught to: 1. Define and utilize the concepts of imperialism, race, and diaspora while demonstrating an understanding of the vast application and complexity of these concepts. 2. Analyze contemporary connections to imperialism for African descendants in consideration of various points of view. For example, students will learn that contemporary continuities of imperialism may manifest in communities that are economically and politically marginalized, as well as privileged communities. Likewise, students will understand the legacy of imperialism as not solely oppressive, but also resistive. As reflected in the course schedule, the range of readings assigned and discussed reflect multiple points of view. 3. Analyze how race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, migration, capitalism and labor, the state and militarism, and ideals of expansion and expulsion are related to the historical and contemporary development of various African diasporic societies and hence the heritage of imperialism within the African diaspora. Furthermore, students will analyze and discuss the central role that race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation and language have played and continue to play in imperial pursuits and also in resistance against imperialism. Towards this end, students will analyze cultural formations, and political and revolutionary movements emerging from the African diaspora. Students will engage in such analysis within larger conversations of geography and political economy. 4. Analyze the relationships between specific historical events and contemporary trends, occurrences and knowledge. 5. Critically engage with and respond to the heritage of imperialism, in a variety of spaces including academia. By studying and engaging networks such as Decolonize this Space and Black Lives Matter, students will gain a greater understanding of the value and utility of social responsibility, civic engagement and scholarship for the public. 6. Map connections between regional and diasporic social movements and processes and understand the geography of central points of discussion concerning the heritage of imperialism as it relates to the African diaspora, on a global scale. The course schedule, the range of readings assigned and discussed reflect global cultural diversity. 7. Identify and apply the fundamental concepts and methods from several disciplines. Students will analyze historiographical sources and understand the contributions of primary and secondary sources and archival research (and how these sources may work to eradicate or contribute to inequities). It is necessary for a course on the heritage of imperialism to be grounded in historical analysis. Students will also evaluate ethnographic texts from Anthropology and Sociology in order to understand ethnographic methodology and value the contributions of people whose perspectives may not be privileged in other mediums. Students will learn to use concepts in art, political economy and geography as analytical tools of the heritage of imperialism. 8. Identify and apply the fundamental concepts and methods of African and African American Studies.
