Amy Sexton ILS 203- Valerie Reed – Dis. Mon. 12:05 The Clash of Civilizations and the Underlying Themes Civilizations all over the world have evolved over time; many civilizations are directly related to one another; adopting and redesigning neighboring cultures’ ideas and conditions into their own ways of life. In response to the “Clash of Civilizations”, different cultures are in a generous pattern of interaction and metamorphosis. Cultures are constantly acquiring new ideas and thoughts from other civilizations. This organic transformation of societies will be proven through examination of art and literature studied within this Integrated Liberal Studies course. 1. The magnificent Queen Nefertiti, the Egyptian queen who reigned as Amenhotep IV’s wife, is known for her immense beauty and grace portrayed in sculptures and portraits all over the Western world. Her tomb is adorned with lifelike portraits of Nefertiti, her husband, and her children. One particular theme in Nefertiti’s tomb are the grotesque carvings and paintings featuring the queen worshiping the gods but being very close, reflecting divine like qualities. Most of the representations in the tomb are iconographical, and tell another story of Nefertiti’s experiences of being queen of Egypt. Another interesting partof the portraits is the immense amount of human- animal hybrids that occur throughout the tomb. These drawings, even though underdeveloped, portray an account of history through art and representation.

    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.
