The Artist and American History – #AmericanStudies

 

Artistry reflects much about society, culture, and history.  Ideas and assumptions about race, gender, sexuality, and class can find expression in the creative works of decades past.  Over the past year the American Studies and History Podcast has presented a series of features which examines the historical and social value of creative works, ranging from silent film to classic comic books.  These short documentary-style lectures examine how the creative works in question  reflect the past; how they provide insight into the changing nature of American society; and how they can be used as historic documents.  These episodes have now been collected into a series entitled The Artist and American History on this page – all of the material in this series is free.  The lectures in this series do not tell a chronological story, they are not a narrative history of artistry.  Instead, they present self contained insights into different formats, styles, and eras which are connected by the themes they explore.  They examine race and racism, how and why icons of modern America have changed, and the ways in which musicians have explored America’s place on the world stage.  This collection does not tell a coherent narrative nor does it aspire to do so.  These lectures and documentaries together explore the ways in which creative individuals and teams have explored, consciously and unconsciously, the DNA of American culture.  This series is far from a complete over view of such a broad subject – but it a place to begin exploring the artist and their role in American history.

 

Episodes in this series are presented in several lists below.  The first list re-orders the episodes into a chronological arc – it is the best option for those who prefer to consume their history in order from first to most recent.  The second list groups the episodes by subject – film; classic comic books; and music.  The third list features the episodes in the original order of their release.  Most of these materials can be downloaded onto your computer, smart phone, tablet, or other digital media device.  Those which cannot be viewed in the players provided in this page.  If you have an iTunes account you can subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss any future episodes.
