It will do so by looking at four overlapping themes, which, together, shaped the Elizabethan world (1558-1603); state and society in the kingdom of England; the politics and diplomacy of Reformation Europe; England's overseas discoveries; and the extension of Tudor rule in the kingdom of Ireland. Fulfills the EP 3 requirement in Fordham's core curriculum. This course will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays with online participation required. Open to all.
SOCI 2960 L11
Session I, Lincoln Center: TTh (hybrid), 6 - 9 p.m.
McGee, 4 credits, CRN 10138
Popular culture looks at the phenomenon of American popular culture and asks how Americans use their leisure time and what these activities suggest about contemporary society. Do sports events provide models for social engagement? Does the popularity of cooking and home improvement shows serve to compensate for diminished time with family and friends? Are museums and other elite cultural institutions sites of a secular religion of high culture? What does it mean that makeover "before and after" culture has come to dominate television and print media? How are video games and online contexts reshaping our social worlds? Through in person lectures, in person and online discussions, and field trips that explore the best of New York City's cultural life, we'll explore the meanings and impact of the many ways we spend our leisure time. Fulfills the Advanced Social Science requirement in Fordham's core curriculum. This course will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays with online participation required. Open to all.
