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:
- What is the role of elites and avant-gardes in modernism?
- What politics did modernists espouse?
- How does modernism relate to mass culture?
- What is the relation of cinema to modernism?
- Has modernism failed?
