SOSC 7330 - Modernity and Crises of Identity: The Reorientation of Western Culture 1872-1917


Credits: 3

Examines the fifty years prior to World War I in which modern civilization reached a great turning point, when the pervasive problems of the preceding century abruptly coalesced, bringing fundamental alterations to virtually every facet of the human experience. Explores responses to the unforeseen disruptions of established worldviews by innovative painters, poets, musicians, dramatists, philosophers, and scientists who challenged prevailing assumptions and experimented with radically new modes of thought and taste. Explains how the contemporary world is best understood in the context of late 19th and early 20th century cultural innovations whose dynamics reveal much about “our humanness.” May be applied to the following curricular concentrations: humanities, global studies.
