American Studies 100 - John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, the Dust Bowl, and the Depression - Jones
We’ll use an interdisciplinary approach to examining Steinbeck’s novel and its environmental and economic contents. Film, history, geography, motel architecture, agriculture, Route 66, and country music may all provide insights to the cultural phenomena of the 1930’s. There will be several short papers and one long one. Class participation is essential.
