ARTH 245 - Urban Art and Society in Jazz Age New York


In the 1920s and early 1930s, New York City was home to (or the inspiration of) some of the nation’s most innovative visual, literary and cinematic works. In this interdisciplinary seminar, we will investigate skyscraper architecture, paintings of city life, advertising photography, The Great Gatsby, art-deco furnishings, the Harlem Renaissance, and flapper movies. Through a mixture of secondary literature and a wide range of primary sources, we will explore broader themes such as the changing boundaries between “low” and “high” culture and the construction of an urban American identity as inflected through race, gender and class.
