Does the Media Mirror Our Culture or Shape Our Culture?  

How did we go from “Leave it to Beaver” to “Modern Family”? These shows illustrate the cultural evolution we have witnessed over the arc of our lifetime. This course will examine the cultural changes we have observed in the family and extended family, race relations, and gender issues through the lens of television, movies, and the comics. We will have some fun and thoughtful conversations determining if the media mirrors our culture, or if it forges the changes to our culture that we see all around us
