Fall 2011 not offered
Rapid advances in technology, a volatile economy, interventionist foreign policy, and the widening gap between rich and poor in the United States are among the trends that prompted turn-of-the-21st century pundits to announce the start of a "new" Gilded Age. In this course about the first Gilded Age, we shall study developments in American visual culture from Appomattox (1865) to the Armory Show (1913), looking in particular at how the growth of the mass media affected cultural practices and institutions.
