Fall 2022, Period 2, Session 2

2.2.2Z Personalities of the 1920s

The decade of the 1920s is now celebrating its hundredth anniversary. Through recorded interviews with and about the foremost personages of that time, many still remembered (Clara Bow, Willa Cather, Clarence Darrow), others mostly forgotten (Ganna Walska, Miguel Covarubias, W. T. Benda), we will acquire a picture of what this fascinating decade was like, with attention to the arts, literature, journalism, science, politics, sports, and daily life.  To follow along (highly recommended), you may request texts in advance. Forward your email address to Richard at thinkers.liu@gmail.com and he will email the texts to you before class. NEW!
