Expanded Course Description
Themes in Humanities: Popular Modernisms This course participates in the ongoing reassessment of relations between aesthetic modernism and popular culture. The rise of "New Modernist studies" over the past twenty five years, with its expansive historical orientation and interest in modernism's original cultural contexts, has led to a serious re-examination of the nature and extent of modernism's relations with and responses to the popular. Questioning both new critical views of modernism as a mode of radical formal experimentation detached from and superior to the crass productions of popular culture and postmodern views of modernism as a mode of neurotic fear and disgust in response to the feminized and feminizing productions of popular culture, this course studies works of popular culture produced during the modernist moment of the early twentieth century that innovate upon the popular genre and media conventions they also employ. We will study examples of science fiction, light verse, silent film comedy, comic fiction, Jazz and popular music, detective fiction, newspaper comic strips, and radio drama.
