WRITUH 1100 - FYWS: Taste, Culture & the Self

Description
“There’s no accounting for taste,” the old saying goes. We like our favorite shoes, cars, and paintings for reasons that simply can’t be explained. This FYWS challenges that assumption. Taking contemporary popular culture as a point of departure, the course delves into debates from history, sociology, and literary studies in order to understand the social construction of taste, giving special attention to the complex role that “good taste” or “bad taste” can play in perpetuating social hierarchies. Students will develop reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills while examining how ideas about “taste” are constructed, interrelated, and how they can inform, limit, or inspire the way we see ourselves in our social worlds.
