Courses / THE ROARING TWENTIES

Coordinators: Wayne Cotter, Leslie Goldman, Michael Wellner

The 1920s witnessed dramatic social, political and cultural change. For the first time, more Americans were living in cities than on farms. As the nation’s total wealth more than doubled during the decade, many Americans were filling their free time with jazz, the cinema and demon alcohol. In this course, we’ll focus on Prohibition, women’s suffrage, silent films, the Jazz Age, and the advent of radio. We’ll also look at some of the larger-than-life personalities that dominated the decade.
