The author of this paper defines humanities as a group of academic disciplines that study the expression of human beings while making sense of the human experience. This paper explores how the different fields of humanities provide a way for individuals to study the expressions of humankind. From art to literature, academics have studied works in these areas to gain a better understanding and appreciation for the diversity of values and cultures represented.
From the Paper:"In the humanities field of art, current developments in politics, socioeconomics, and technology are represented. Throughout history, art has been an expression of the humankind experience and the values of society at that time. For example, Diego Rivera was a Mexican muralist painter during the 20th Century. When commissioned by the Rockefellers to paint a mural at the Rockefeller Center in New York in 1933 during the Great Depression, Rivera presented a mural of Lenin leading a demonstration of workers amidst a sea of red banners. The murals clear political statement resulted in the mural being destroyed by the Rockefellers. Earlier, Rivera had painted a mural for Henry Ford in Detroit that depicted factory workers in a plant."
