AMS 586 - American Exper 1865-1960

Description
An exploration of the development of the American cultural experience since 1865, focusing on the major material forces and intellectual currents that helped shape American attitudes, assumptions, institutions, behavior, and values. The course will draw upon insights from many disciplines and will include several kinds of cultural evidence (for example: literature, art, and photography; religious, political, and social thought and behavior; and economic, technological, and geographical development) as well as consideration of recent major synthetic works of cultural scholarship. Topics addressed and readings assigned are chosen to enlarge awareness of the transformation of America to a diverse, metropolitan, industrial society. These will include the relationship between nature and the city; the industrial revolution and changes in the workplace; immigration; changing class and gender relationships; the rise of leisure; and the development and triumph of modern corporate/consumer culture. Offered spring semester.
