to the Cultural History of the United States
DELUSA - IEP de Lyon
This course addresses the two meanings of "culture" (see lecture 1): the practices that bind a group/people together, and the cultural artifacts/productions of a group/people. We will deal with ideas, values but also with "cultural" places such as museums or cultural issues such as intellectual property.
It is intended as an introduction to a complex field and one which is often caricatured. The approach will be that of cultural history (see Ory below).
Students are expected to prepare for class by reading the assigned material (see links to relevant pages in the syllabus).
The final written exam will consist in one or two essay questions on the issues discussed in class.
