AM 367 - 1950s


Credits: 3
An interdisciplinary analysis of the decade of the 1950s in America. Using a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, including fiction, film, music, biography, autobiography, poetry, sociology, drama, and social criticism, the course explores the distinctive culture of this decade. It focuses on the ways different groups of Americans experienced the period, studying conformity and consumerism, the beatniks, rock and roll, and the silent generation, as well as the roots of the protest movements and the counterculture of the 1960s.
Note(s): 300-level courses in American Studies are not ordinarily open to first-year students except by permission of the instructor. (Fulfills humanistic inquiry.)
