We discussed the third and final reading (p. 111-173) from our book today. Students were asked to respond (as blog posts) to the relative questions on page 3. These include:

  1. What is the role of elites and avant-gardes in modernism?
  2. What politics did modernists espouse?
  3. How does modernism relate to mass culture?
  4. What is the relation of cinema to modernism?
  5. Has modernism failed?
