Spring Breakthrough 2022 - Modern US History in Popular Culture with Prof. Adriane Lentz-Smith

Adriane Lentz-Smith

No plans for Spring Break?  Register for Prof. Lentz-Smith's four day course, Modern US History in Popular Culture, March 7th - 10th.

This course will explore U. S. history as informed by media and Hollywood. Students will watch, discuss, and learn from iconic television shows, make their own soundtrack to the timeframe, and learn to treat the arcade as an archive.

"Spring Breakthrough offers Duke students a free, unique spring break. It consists of 11 four-day courses taught by Duke faculty from Monday, March 7th to Thursday, March 10th, 2022. The non-credit courses are designed to explore intellectual interests in a fun and refreshing way, with professors and students one might not otherwise encounter. 

Courses are offered in a range of topics, and participants are encouraged to explore new disciplines. There are no prerequisites, grades or credits. The only expectation is that students engage meaningfully with fellow students and faculty while exploring their intellectual curiosity.  Participation will be noted on transcripts."
