Description: Despite prevailing perceptions, the 1930s weren't all dust and depression. The decade saw the advent of big band swing, both in music and dancing styles, the proliferation of films with sound, and exciting new styles of visual art and writing. American culture flourished both because and in spite of the Great Depression. In this course, we’ll study the history, literature, music, art, and film of the vibrant but complex 1930s with an eye for how this decade helped define contemporary American culture.
