Modernity and Consciousness


Please note: this is archived course information from 2018 for SOCIOL 729.

Description

Operating on the boundary between sociologies of history and culture, this course employs the work of Walter Benjamin, Marshall Berman, Wolfgang Schivelbusch, Raymond Williams, and Talcott Parsons to explore creatively tangled relationships among three superficially similar terms – ‘modernisation’, ‘modernity’ and ‘modernism’ – in sundry nineteenth and twentieth century urban and rural settings.
