Hot Off the Press

What's new in the cultural life of the United States? In this class, we will sample new books, films, tv-series, and music etc. in order to find out what stirs American minds and hearts at the present moment. Each week, we will focus on a new item. In order to keep the workload manageable, we will read the works assigned in excerpts; students familiar with the entire work, will lead us through our discussions.

You need not register for this class. If you are interested in participating, please join us on October 15 at four in room 333 when we will select the items for this semester.
