Jacob Goldberg

East Asian Studies, Class of 2020

I’m an East Asian Studies major with potentially a certificate in Hellenistic Studies.

Role(s) held in the Humanistic Studies Program:

Certificate Student

Activities on campus:

WPRB DJ, Wawa United Soccer Team, Petey Greene Tutor

Why I decided to study the humanities:

I decided to study the humanities to better my ability to understand the minds of those around me.

What I have gained from the humanities:

Studying the humanities has given me tools with which to better process the world.

Independent work:

I am not totally set on my Junior independent work topic, but it may be about independent art (specifically a community of rappers I know and a playwright) in the increasingly unfree space of Beijing, and how these counter cultural groups relate to the space around them in a society that is increasingly emphasizing “harmony.”
