期末專題
Final Project

你(妳)們已被委任為麻省理工學院建造一個亞美女性及男性虛擬實境博物館,你(妳)們得自己決定博物館裡的館藏資訊、手工藝品及其組織編排和呈現方式。在創建的博物館中,你(妳)們將要述說亞裔美國人的歷史故事,並著重在性別、種族及社會階層等議題的描繪。那麼,在這博物館裡,你(妳)們想說的是什麼樣的故事呢?

思考方向:
誰的故事?
誰在說故事?
你(妳)們將依照事件發生的先後順序或是主題思想來安排資訊呢?
你(妳)們將以整體「亞裔美國人」為一整體來規劃展覽或是為各個次種族族群劃分展覽區域?(華裔美國人、越裔美國人、南亞裔美國人等)
你(妳)們將針對知名人士或普羅大眾?
你(妳)們將如何利用口述歷史?
你(妳)們將如何統整利用視覺、工藝、以及文字方面的歷史資料來呈現給大眾?

展覽方式:
時間軸
「百大亞太裔人士」(編按:APIs 指的是Asian Pacific Islanders,即亞太裔人)
「某人生活中的某一天」
個人歷史
歷史照片
亞裔美國男性及女性的重要議題

這將是一個全班性的專題。各位將以小組(約三到四人)方式分工負責建造博物館的工作。這個專題將包含部分考試和報告的相同目的。也就是說,你(妳)們應當將本學期所學習的知識和議題融會貫通,並針對某一方向作獨創深入的研究後,將研究結果寫成書面報告。各組須繳交一份約三十至四十頁的學期報告,內容須將研究成果精心的組織編排,並表現原創性及清晰的文筆。此外,學期結束時,每人將針對本學期建構博物館的學習經驗,繳交一份一頁至兩頁的短文。

此專題將利用一整學期的時間來完成,為了保持進度,每組必須按部就班準備博物館館藏所需資料,如此我們可循序漸進完成專題,以避免期末臨時抱佛腳的混亂情況發生。每週課堂上亦有小組進度討論時間。一助教將協助同學上網搜尋資料,並回答任何與網際網路或網頁有關的問題。

可能派上用場的資料包括:
歷史書籍
期刊文章
文獻
影片
亞裔美國人名人資料(網站連結:http://www.asianamerican.net/whoswho.html
雜誌
網路
博物館展覽目錄
照片檔案庫
圖書館(麻省理工學院、哈佛大學燕京圖書館、波士頓公共圖書館)




Final Project

You have been commissioned to build a Virtual Museum of Asian American Women and Men for MIT. You must decide what will go into the museum and how the information/artifacts will be organized and presented. In creating this museum, you will be telling the story of Asian American history, but with an explicit emphasis on gender, race, and class issues. What kind of story will you tell in the museum?

Issues to think about:
Whose story is it?
Who is telling the story?
Will you arrange your information chronologically or by theme?
Will you group "Asian Americans" together or have separate exhibits for different subethnic groups? (Chinese American, Vietnamese American, South Asian American, etc.)
Will you focus on "famous" people or "ordinary" people?
How can you use oral history?
How will you use visuals, artifacts, and text together to present your information to the public?

Ideas for exhibits:
Timeline
"Top 100 APIs"
"A Day in the Life of..."
Individual Histories
Historical Photographs
Important Issues for Asian American Men and Women

This will be a class-wide project. You will work in small groups of 3-4 to create your part of the museum. The project is intended to fulfill some of the same purposes of both an exam and a term paper. That is, you should show comprehensive mastery of the material and issues covered during the term, and you should conduct some original, in-depth research on a focused area and produce a piece of written work based on this research. Each group should submit a project that is equivalent to a 30-40 page term paper, in terms of research, thoughtfulness of organization, originality and clarity of writing. In addition, each student will submit a short (1-2 page) essay at the close of the term, reflecting on what s/he learned through the experience of constructing the museum.

Work on the project will be spread throughout the term. Groups will be asked to bring in "pieces" of the museum in the coming weeks so we can monitor progress. By working at a steady pace, we can avoid the end of the semester crush. There will be class time every week to discuss your progress. A class assistant will be available to help get everything on-line, and answer any questions about the WWW or HTML.
