Description

In this course, we will explore the dynamic and enticing trends of pop culture in German-speaking society throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, from the Roaring 1920s to Generation Z. Delving through the decades, we will navigate the movement of music, fashion, and social media in order to not only discover the ways in which society and socioeconomic situations affected these trends but additionally how these trends influenced society at large. By using a vast range of resources and select visual imagery, we will be taking a critical look at how fashion and trends have impacted our innermost identities, body positivity, and gendered stereotypes. The necessary vocabulary and grammar will be provided along the way.

Course Requirements:

Grades will be based on participation, prep work, projects, and short essays.

Class Format:

 

In person.
