HLI 390 Modern Culture: Literature and Film

Modern Culture provides an introduction to modernism in literature and film. Students read and view a range of works that illustrate aesthetic and cultural aspects of modernism, including political, social, and religious matters, and the influence of technology on works by Hart Crane, Fernand Léger, George Antheil, and others. The course is not intended as a survey of the principal modernist texts and films but rather as an introduction to certain key notions and modes that are characteristic of modernism.
