Welcome, Members of Parliament

Welcome, Members of Parliament. This blog is designed to act as a student forum for anyone enrolled in my classes at a Dallas-area proprietary college, former students, and/or others who find our conversations interesting. The Parliament will be moderated to ensure civility and relevance. The directions we take, the paths we follow, and the concerns we address are all up to you.

William Morris Strawberry Thief Game

This Just In (and of possible interest to Art History 2 students): Whilst fooling about on the web and checking my blog roll, I found a reference to a new game based, on the well-known-to-my-students Morris textile pattern, developed by a team at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

There's a video report from BBC News Scotland, and a report on the process at Sophia George's blog (she's the developer). See also some commentary from The Victorian Librarian (Mid-week Museum: Strawberry Thief by William Morris).

Now what was that again about art history having nothing to do with doing creative work in the real world?
