1 War memorial and commemoration

In this course you will have an opportunity to practise good study techniques using a framework within which to use them. Obviously, since you are shortly to begin your study of a range of disciplines, it will make sense to use a framework, or theme, that is relevant to the arts as a whole. The theme we have selected is that of commemoration and memorials.

Studying this course will give you the experience of looking at, and thinking about, ideas that form the study of the humanities. At points in the text we have indicated words in bold which we think you need to take particular care to understand.

Exercise 1

At this point, read Chapter 6, ‘Processes of study in the arts and humanities’, in The Arts Good Study Guide.

Discussion

We know that this reading will prove useful as you work through this course. At the end of the sections, we suggest that you return to the words in bold type, and consider whether their use helped you to understand, and to express, the ideas in the text: at an early stage we want you to be aware of the importance of using a vocabulary that effectively expresses ideas.
