EEX 2000 Homework #1 Abandoned to Their Fate / Welcome to Gibtown Name: Sarah Sherr (7827-9590) Answer the questions below based upon the video Abandoned to Their Fate. 1. What is aesthetic failure? Discuss one assumption made about people who were considered aesthetic failures. How does this relate to disability? Your response should be 3-4 sentences. Aesthetic failure is also known as the failure of personal appearance. One assumption made about people perceived as aesthetic failures was that they were sources of entertainment. This relates back to disabilities in the middle ages as these people were placed in “idiot cages” located in town centers for public display. The original reason for keeping these cages were to keep these people away from ‘normal humans’ so that they could calm down and would not resort to violence. 2. Discuss the idea of aesthetic failure with respect to Gibtown. Your response should be 4-5 sentences.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
