Welcome! This blog has recently been taken over by Gianna who is currently an Art History major and Museums and Society minor.

The other majors have memes. Why shouldn't we?

The meme generator is here.

Question with 3 notes

Anonymous said: You have no idea how happy I am that you're back!! You're getting me through these Art History final papers, much appreciated!

This makes me really happy to hear! I am glad I’m helping you out in some way, and apologies for dying down for a bit there. 

Keep up with the hard work!

Hardcore art history majors enjoy taking exams.

For those savvy in museum politics and repatriation issues. 


This is actually rather rude, y’all, NAGPRA is of vital importance and repatriating the remains of indigenous peoples… I don’t know, shouldn’t be poked fun at~

Depends on which side of the fence you sit on. A minor discussion about NAGPRA during a book signing for one of my professors turned into a shouting match between the author (who opposed the law) and two other professors (who were strongly for it). Since the Great NAGPRA Fight of 2010, students have been making various jokes or defending the law depending on which professor they sided with.

When making this joke I was certain many people would take offence. Repatriation and respect in archaeological contexts is a huge ethical issue and should be taken seriously. But I will say: I’m not a fan of congress calling the shots. Similar issues of repatriation are occurring with antiquities and WWII Nazi-looted art. Taking these objects at a case-by-case basis, proper action is applied to them as the museums and those asking for repatriation communicate and collaborate. So repatriation is all well and good (and should be rightful respected when appropriate), but I think NAGPRA really puts a major damper on archaeological/museological endeavors. 
So there are good and bad things about NAGPRA. Generally, art historians tend to dislike people getting in their way thus a grumpy, white  cat with a glass of wine whining about it. 

sorry. Keep reblogging things to my personal blog. 
But for those whom this may interest.
