Welcome to American Popular Culture!
What role do sports play in our culture? Are movies reflections of society or escapes? This course is intended to explore the major events of United States history as reflected in the popular culture of time. Through art, television, movies, music, technology, fads, and sports we will attempt to tell the story of American history as lived by the American people. The units range from the 1920s to the present with heavy emphasis on the 1920s - 1960s. The course will give close examination to the development of American culture and what that means in a modern context.
