Course Description

Baby boomers came on the scene into a culture reeling from the impact of World War II. This course focuses on the complex mosaic of growing up female in these times through the study of its mass media and poetry. Shaping and reflecting the attitudes of both women and men, popular culture and art provide insight into our collective pasts and how we have come to be the persons we are today. Beginning with postwar adjustments and moving through the remainder of the twentieth century, we will dive into this literature where television, music, film, and poetry provide a rich reflection of the conflicts and opportunities society wrestled to encompass. Explore the journey we lived from the wisdom of age and speculate on its future path.  Facilitated Discussion Active Participation Viewing Videos
