Concepts of the Modern

This past semester I have been taking the best English class ever at Wayne State University. I thought I should report on it before I take my final and change my mind. The class is called Concepts of the Modern and explores modernity, modernism, and modernization through literature officially, but also through art, history, and philosophy. My professor has been really great in taking advantage of our location in Detroit and referring back to the city in most of our classes. As Detroit is the “quintessential modern city” we were able to take a walking tour of Lafayette Park to explore modernism, and then over to the Renaissance Center to decipher post-modernism.
