Popular Culture in the Roaring Twenties: The Age of Excess

The end of The Great War ushered in a decade of economic prosperity in the U.S., leading to a period of excess and exuberance referred to as The Roaring Twenties. Stef Woods, Department of American Studies, American University, will explore popular culture of the 1920s from the Jazz Age to flappers to the Lost Generation to Prohibition. Specifically, she will examine how major shifts in how people communicated in the Twenties influenced dramatic changes in radio, movies, art, and literature. Finally, this talk will draw connections between 1920s popular culture and contemporary society.

This lecture is part of the series The Roaring Twenties presented by Camden County College. All lectures will take place on Wednesdays at 7pm at Madison Connector 105 on Camden County College’s Blackwood Campus.
