Over the summer I finished my senior capstone with an A! After over 20 years of stops and starts, I will finally be getting my college degree in May 2024. My project required using a music video as a starting point to analyze a complex problem using the interdisciplinary methods from my degree concentrations graphic design and art history. I ended up writing about drag bans in America and will be uploading the project soon. For now, you can listen to the “elevator pitch!” here.
