Contextual History; The recap game

Today at Paxman’s lecture we first played our recap game. Its very effective as it gets the brain thinking! Each time we rolled the dice we had to answer or ask a question, we did this by writing our answers or questions on sticky notes where we then placed it on the wall. First question was number 3, It was about Edward Leah, who was a children’s illustrator/author who was secretly homosexual. Since it was against the law in that time period to be with a man or to be a homosexual Edward created stories were opposites could be together, and live happily ever after. All of his stories had a happy ending. We then talked about the U.S Civil War, the North and South, and Ijeiyo-E. Ijeiyo-E is a style of art/design in the 1850’s in Japan which was wood block printing. Van Goth was inspired by the wood block printing technique. We then talked about randoms things, like when the Eiffel Tower was built and a chameleon changes its colour not to just blend it with its surroundings but its emotion, if it feels sad or angry it will change to a certain colour.
