AHIS 208 The City in American Culture
Building on the work of urban and cultural historians, this course is designed to analyze and describe the "city’s" contributions to American "culture." The course thematically surveys several "cultural moments" from the late 18th to the late 20th century through the perspective of a wide range of urban artists, poets, writers, journalists, and musicians. The course explores how "city life" influenced a variety of urbanites (both men and women) who put pencil to paper, brush to canvas, and lyrics to music, and, in so doing, played significant roles in the "production" of American "culture." Offered Spring only. (LA)
