HUM 295-01 - Special Topic: Generational Memory in Rural Iowa

4 credits (Fall)
Due to expanded life expectancies, changing experiences of age have become prominent in our daily life. The generational concept is useful to  understand social change: What exactly is change, and how does it work from one generation to the other other in respect to values, life style, routines, etc? The aim of the course is to examine these questions in theory and at the same  time conduct practical research collecting interviews with people from different families/family generations living in rural Iowa. Taught in English.

Prerequisite: Second-year standing.
Instructor: Sparaschuh
