ENGLISH 300CE      Cluster Course: Radical Changes Since 1945
This cluster will focus on modernism, post-modernism and expressionism in the visual arts and literature since World War II. Common lectures will address intellectual movements-such as existentialism and formalism--and cultural development--such as the increased impact of technology and mass media--in contemporary society. By focusing on these movements, the cluster course hopes 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.
