EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENT Group Member Names: Kiara Almonte, Shawn Jacob, Andrew Mckibben Date: 5/1/15 ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION You have learned a lot about art in our world. For this extra credit assignment, you will work with a partner or two to tackle a controversial issue in the art world: the Elgin Marbles (also known as the Parthenon Sculptures). You will form a group using the Group Sign Up sheet on the course homepage, debate the issue using your group’s private discussion board, and decide on a position, articulating the justification for your position. The Debate: In the early 1800s, sculptures once on the Parthenon in Athens, Greece were taken by a British diplomat and placed in the British Museum. At the time, the sculpture was strewn about the top of the Acropolis. Since, the Greek government demanded that this group of sculpted works (collectively known as the Elgin Marbles) be returned to Greece. The British Museum refused. Watch videos on the debate here: (brief, pro-British video) (longer scholarly debate addressing both sides of the issue) (if these links are dead, simply search for “Elgin Marbles Debate” on youtube.com) Read about the debate: The British Museum’s position:

    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.
