 Topic
  Students

  Wallace
 Bacon,
 a
 retired
 professor
 of
 Performance
 Studies
 at
 Northwestern
 University
 and
 recipient
 of
  an
 Honorary
 Doctorate
 from
 Emerson
 College
 in
 1975,
 wrote
 that
 the
 liberal
 arts,
 or
 humanities,
 "are
  concerned
 with
 the
 question
 of
 what
 makes
 life
 worth
 living.
 And
 that
 question
 concerns
 not
 simply
  oneself
 but
 others.
 The
 humanities
 must
 help
 us
 learn
 who
 we
 are;
 they
 must
 help
 us
 learn
 the
  otherness
 of
 others."
 In
 this
 light,
 describe
 an
 encounter
 with
 someone
 or
 something
 different,
 an
  "other"
 which
 revealed
 to
 you
 your
 sense
 of
 self
 and
 relation
 to
 humanity.
 This
 encounter
 may
 involve
 a
  person,
 place,
 culture,
 or
 text
 (book,
 speech,
 film,
 play,
 etc.).
