LASS 932 - The American Suburbs

3 credits
The modern suburb has had a tremendous impact upon the history, culture, politics, and art of American society. In this course we investigate the historical development of the American suburb as well as its modern form. Looking at the suburb as a cultural phenomenon, we explore both the stereotype of the suburbs as well as its more complex reality. We also examine works of fiction, photography, painting, film-making, architecture, and design that have emerged out of this strange and familiar landscape.

Prerequisites LACR*102 or LACR*103
