    • Hi Mariah, I think that witch hunting is a very interesting topic. When you said “One of the biggest “witch hunts” that isn’t directly about the practice of witchcraft is the era of containment led by Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s”. This is a topic that no one pays much attention to anymore, but it in fact has gone on in modern society and should not be ignored.

  • Davis,
    I would just like to say that I also think Mexican music is drastically underappreciated. As a non-native Spanish speaker, but someone who is learning, I was hesitant to begin listening to music in a language I didn’t speak fluently. However, I quickly discovered that I love Mexican music and the very broad range of emotions that one can…Read More

    Mariah commented on the post, Ceramics

    Amy,
    I know very little about ceramics, so this was very interesting for me to read. I found it fascinating that there are emotional benefits to making pottery and other forms of ceramics. It would certainly be compelling to investigate more into how ceramics have helped people center themselves and become more grounded. Here is a link to an…Read More

    • Hi Mariah,
      I think that this subject is really interesting and isn’t something I know a ton about. I know that there is a history of accusing women of being witches, but I’d be interested in learning about if that is something still happening today and to what extent. I’m really excited to see what else you research about.

    • This is a fun topic! I am interested in seeing comparisons between modern day interpretations of witches and medieval interpretations of witches. I also would love to learn what is happening today that is similar the the Witch Trials.

    • This is a pretty interesting topic. I like the debate on the difference between the act of a “witch” and a miracle. I think the comparison of the definition of a witch throughout history would be a very interesting and creative topic.

    • Mariah, I think that this is a really fun topic to look into. We have all heard about “witches” in history but I have never thought about where the idea of a witch came from. I think it will be interesting to see how the historical definition of a witch morphed into the Halloween character with pointy hats and broomsticks.

    • Mariah, this is still a very interesting topic! I am intrigued by the direction that you chose to go in with your research. I thought your second source was especially interesting and I never thought that the female body would lead people to believe that women were more likely to worship the devil. I look forward to seeing what your next set of research includes!

  • Hi Yadira!
    I am also approaching graduation and I know how exciting it can be to have the rest of your life right in front of you. I think it’s amazing that you want to be an Animal Attendant. When I was younger, I wanted to be a veterinarian, so I relate to you in wanting to work with animals. Here is an article I think you might enjoy about the…Read More
