HIS 371 - Movies and American Society

Credits: 3

Popular movies are one of the most important forms of American mass culture in the twentieth century. In this course, we will explore the use of popular movies both as cultural artifacts (evidence) as well as a way of telling history. Thus we will learn to evaluate fictional movies for what they tell us about the era in which they were made and to appreciate the problems with the contributions of docudramas and documentaries to telling and interpreting the past.
