Art History Honors homework  
Proposed: Write a paper on the Turkish influence on European textiles and fashion in the 16th through 18th centuries.

Pro: Neat idea to research. I like fashion. I gotta write a paper anyway, and this will be new territory.

Con: Where the heck am I going to find information re: this topic? I doubt the city library will help much, and the school libraries certainly won't. Also, none of the art museums in San Francisco have an extensive fashion collection that I'm aware of, so my ability to see examples of my subject first hand will be quite limited.

Perhaps I will propose this idea to Elizabeth (my art history teacher) and see what she thinks.


Also, Paul - are you taking African American history this quarter? I thought I saw you outside of one of my friend's classes, but it's been years since I saw you so I wasn't sure. Sorry if it was you, didn't mean to ignore you!

Something to consider at the school library is Inter-Library Loan. I have found it quite useful for tracking down books in the past. And if it's a University library, you should have use of them for more than a few days or weeks.

Do community colleges do inter-library loans? I was always under the impression that was more for schools with a large network, like state universities and that sort of thing. I'll definitely look into that tho'; thanks for the suggestion :D

It's worth asking. Large city libraries also would be good candidates to ask. Many of them participate in a limited fashion.

I got a book from a small college in Illinois recently. Nobody in Missouri had a copy that was in the network...

Maybe King library would have some information on this topic on their databases? I only ever look up psych articles, so I never really get out of the social science realm, but I'm sure there's an art history section. I could give you my student ID and pin for access.

We might have to investigate that one of these days. DeAnza has some database resources but I've never been big on using them. I should probably try them out :-p

I looked really briefly at the SJSU database and there's an Arts & Humanities section. I didn't investigate any further, since I'm not sure what you're looking for.

At this point I'm not sure what I'm looking for either! :-p I'm meeting w/ my teacher this afternoon to figure out how I want to do this thing.

Huh...could always ask your instructor if they have any leads they can direct you too. Unfortunately I have no idea (especially since I don't really follow these things x_X)

African American History? Nope...
I am however taking HIST 17C which is "History of the United States From 1900 to the Present".

Yeah it's been years @_@
I wonder if I remember what you look like even ó_ò

And no worries...I didn't see you =P
Much less this quarter is so busy...I am always on the run...hardly have time to settle down for a bit @_@
Suzik00kaburra on April 28th, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
Probably wasn't you, then. :-P A case of mistaken identity!

*shrug* Who knows =P

My class starts at 12:30pm in the L quad and I leave once class is out at 1:20pm. From there I "dash" across campus to the Seminar building ^^;
