1984: One Weird Year


This course examines one year as a way to make sense of recent American culture. Looking at points around the country but always returning to the experience of WashU in 1984, this course experiences the past as Americans did, through the simultaneous overlap of daily life and politics, movies and music, the books they were assigned in school and the very different books they chose to read. In addition to tackling the challenge of understanding one year, students will develop a variety of the collaborative and communication skills that are so important both in college and beyond.
