In fall 2011, I took a class called “The Pluto Saga”, a class advertised as a humanities-based astronomy course meant for non-scientists. I like to take courses that challenge my view of the world, and an astronomy class is certainly outside of the normal course load for an International Relations major. During this class, we did everything from moon observations to looking at 1880s prints of giant birds to discussing religion. It was a survey course for scientific history, art history, astronomical theory, and present day scientific methods. We learned bits and pieces from several different (and sometimes unrelated) fields.
On the left are significant moments of the class, ranging from when I learned an outline was useful to an art history paper I did particularly well on.
