LAPI 930 - Age of Consumer Culture 1945 - 1972

3 credits
The course explores the way in which consumer culture redefined America in the post-war period and transformed its culture. This course explores the reconfiguration of space, focusing in particular on the rise of the suburb, television and malls, and the ways in which these redefined the role of public and private, reshaping art, politics and audiences. Students will look at poetry, fiction, and the visual arts and trace their reaction from an initial anti-materialistic critique to gradual incorporation and appropriation.

Prerequisites LACR*210

Student must have completed the 1st semester of their Sophomore year (45 credits).
