Caroline Kleeman: I'm a junior concentrating in cognitive science, with a focus on child development. I am also a dancer, and dance is incorporated in almost everything I do. Even though I've lived in Chicago my whole life, I feel more at home in New England.

I was drawn to this class because I recently discovered my love for the study of material culture (after taking a great Am Civ class called "Graveyards and Burying Grounds"). Material culture is an accessible way for me to study history; I love certain areas of historical study, but I find it difficult to grasp some of the more abstract ideas. For the moment, the thing that I am most excited about studying is the map, though I'm pretty sure that will change as we start to delve into each new thing.
