INTS 165 The Shifting Center
Studies the perpetual change at the heart of fragmentation in postmodern life, the loss of a single organizing narrative, and the range of human response. Focuses on the often conflicted arenas of contemporary culture: mass media, the arts, and public discourse surrounding politics, science, religion, and other embattled institutions. Lectures and readings interact with cultural texts and creative collaborations to explore the tumultuous landscape presented by these late days of modernity. IS: Culture (Art) and Community (Communication). Liberal Arts.
