Ideas That Shape the World: Modernity
This course focuses on key themes of the Victorian and modernist experience: Evolution, Revolution, and Relativity. In a cosmos increasingly experienced as destabilized and volatile, the powers of the imagination collide with a sense of alienation and powerlessness in the face of technological, economic and political forces. In music, painting, politics, literature and social thought, individuals explore the uncertainties of the human position, giving voice to new frames of meaning, new grammars of human expression.
