Politics and Mass Consumer Culture: Lessons from the 1920s

May 4, 2021 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Part of our No Reservations series, join Dr. Kimberley Reilly on Politics and Mass Consumer Culture: Lessons from the 1920s.

Historians have long debated the effect of mass consumer culture on Americans’ political engagement in the 1920s. How should we understand the decline of political participation in the jazz age? And what lessons does the 1920s hold for our own time?

Dr. Kimberley Reilly is an associate professor of Democracy & Justice Studies and History, and co-chair of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program.
