This course examines how cultural phenomena shape our world and how, in turn, we shape it. Students will compare the differences between the relationship between high and pop culture; how culture embodies power, gender, race and class; and how material culture makes us who we are. Students will refer to social and cultural criticism, literature, urban planning, architecture, advertising, popular culture and personal experience in examining these phenomena.
Learning Management System (LMS) for this course is Moodle. This course utilizes an asynchronous mode of learning (other than forums, there is no set meeting time for the class. Students may access & complete course material at their own convenience).
