Minor in Popular Culture Studies - The Artist and Society CTMP 2335   The Artist and Society
A preoccupation of 20th century cultural life has been the relation between the creative artist and society. To what extent should the artist engage in the social and political currents of her/his time, or retreat into solitude? What responsibility does the artist have to society, or society to the artist? This course often concentrates on a particular artist or group of artists. In 2017-18, the artist will be David Bowie.
