    Prehistoric humans would decorate objects to tell a story or to communicate. For example when neanderthals would paint on caves, it would represent a story that they had gone through. Other prehistoric beings would also decorate objects as some sort of tribute to their god or gods.

    I agree that pictures and language can have a big impact on the way that we think about an issue. As a woman I’ve noticed that in a lot of my classes, especially those concerning history, the majority of the language and pictures are centered around a male perspective. Looking at history, we don’t often get to hear from women. It was interesting for me in this class, to discuss how it is though that some of the art work that we view must have been done by women because it was clearly done from a woman’s perspective.

    This is BADASS!!!! I’m a white dude. I just read the paper sometimes….sometimes. I have never thought about how what I have been reading is presented to me affects what it is I’m reading. Also, the nuances in the language in what is written MATTER! It’s like Bell is like, “HEY! Come over here and look at it from this angle!”
