This course continues to explore the possible relationships between art and cultural theory.
The attempt this time is made through reading popular culture with the following topics: “Youth: Attraction or Fear?”; “Mourning for the Lost Youth in Popular Culture”; and “Youth and Popular Culture: The Art of Being ‘Earnest.’”
We will discuss popular culture across time and place with reference to
Nietzsche, Baudelaire, Walter Benjamin, Adorno, Barthes, John Fiske, Marx, Marshall Berman, and more.
