COMM-ST 403CE      Cc: Radical Changes Since 1945
This cluster course will focus on modernism, post-modernism and expressionism in the visual arts and literature since World War II. Lectures address intellectual movements-such as existentialism and formalism-and cultural development-such as increased impact of technology and mass media-in contemporary society. By focusing on these movements, we hope to provide an integrated view of the literature and visual arts of the period and to draw upon analogous developments in contemporary architecture, music, philosophy and film. This course is offered as a cluster with ENGLISH 300CE.
