050. American Material Culture. (C) Gen Req II: May be counted towards the General Requirement in History & Tradition. K. Murphey. The course will involve a cultural analysis of a selection of the material products of modern American society. How and why have such things as the house, chair, automobile, clothing and disposable products evolved and what meanings do they carry for our society?
The class now has a home page. I wrote about a trip to the Vietnam Veterians Memorial in Washington DC.
Next, I wrote about Mares Stellfox, a lady racecar driver.
