LASS 822 - American Civilization II


An examination of some of the ways in which contemporary society and culture, including the arts and media, are related. For example, which people choose which forms of culture for their use, why do they use them, what effect does the culture have on the people who use them, and what interest does society have in regulating which culture people have access to? The course considers the categories of high and popular culture, the nature of social and cultural hierarchy, the social values transmitted by popular culture and media, and perspectives on censorship.
