Work, Society, and Culture in Modern America
This course has a double focus: the history of work in the modern US, and the cultural representations (fiction, movies, television, music, and others) that people have made of their working lives. All manner of work-from domestic service to farm labor-is considered. Above all, this course examines how work functions as a "way of life" in American cultural history.
