New class: Cultural History 1 

Calvin Harris, H.W., M.

Course Overview:

Cultural History Course #1 (CH1)  is about culture and its relationship in mankind’s drive to Consciously evolve.

It is intended to give you a brief overview of the roots of American culture (CH2),  and the influences of its English predecessors.  There are endless topics we could have considered, but twelve have been chosen to reflect the broad interlacing patterns of our history. While the major focus of this seminar is on the twentieth century, we find ourselves looking sometimes to the nineteenth century and even further back to discover Important evolving ideas that help shape the cultural visions, planning, and experiences of modern life today especially in our metropolitan cities. We will take a look back at daily life, The division of work and labor, the roles of  Business, Science, and the Art’s and how mankind’s manipulation of the natural world became the materials that shape our culture and evolves our future.

The term “brief overview” is used to described an “unwieldy subject” that encompasses almost the totality of human existence.

The approach taken in (CH1), is to use British Society as a precursor, a window into our own popular culture.

Eight themes have been chosen to reflect the broad interlacing patterns of our modern culture. They are  Communication, Community, Contract, Commitment, Creativity, Change,  and Currency  (Commerce) all evolutionary elements of a relationship rooted in culture; We will discuss the aesthetic hierarchy; discuss cultural imperialism; address problems of cultural identity and creativity; and examines cultural expressions of social differences, sexuality, and deviance.

The overarching theme is embracing relationship while contesting structure: we’ll explore the ways in which individuals both shape and are shaped by their society—the ways in which they both reinforce and resist its pressures.

We will pay particular attention to cultural disagreements and conflicts driven by ethnicity, race, or gender. We will look at the structure, dynamics and policy outcomes of these cultural conflicts, that dives the ascent of consciousness.
