7) How and why did television shape the consumer culture of the 1950s?
Television shaped the consumer culture in the 1950’s because this is when the market for televisions became larger. As the number of households with televisions increased, the way the networks targeted the audience changed. Television signals were able to reach further into rural areas so events (such as conventions) could be broadcasted to a wider audience. Television greatly influenced what society was talking about and therefore more and more genres started transferring onto the television. Consumers became more reliant on the television for not only news, but entertainment as well.

8) Why was the Montgomery bus boycott successful?
The boycott was successful because it was a non-violent form of protest. The initiators of the boycott actively spread the word to other “blacks” in their neighborhoods and everyone took a stand against riding the buses. Since they came together as a race, the “blacks” were able to make an impact economically. The economic impact combined with their lack of retaliation to instigations from the white community drew attention from higher authorities. Finally, the issue was taken to court and racial segregation on buses was proven to be illegal.

9) Why were the civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham, Alabama, in April 1963 effective and important?
The demonstrations in Birmingham were effective because King never gave up. When the African American adults were staying out of the protests, he encouraged the youth to take a stand. It was important because Birmingham was the center for the KKK, which was actively violent towards the “blacks.” JFK also stepped in to help bail out King and this later brought about desegregation.

...Quiz 3: One of the most memorable and significant cases of American history was a Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Japanese forces did a quick and deliberate attack that sunk eight American ships and wounded many men and women. Most importantly this attacked was not only spontaneous, but also had a great execution plan which allowed for Japanese forces to withdraw their forces completely untouched. In “Military Misfortunes”, authors Cohen and Gooch present the matter in such way that the mistakes were made due to inability to communicate and to disburse proper intelligence information to naval commander Admiral Kimmel. Communication is a vital part of the military planning and lack of “Knowing your enemy” can be catastrophic. Inadequate communication also leads to inability to attack enemy weaknesses and to avoid strengths, which United States failed to do, but on the contrary was mastered by Japanese forces during Pearl Harbor. Another mistake made during in 1942 attack was the inability to mask critical, American, plans and keep them secret. By lack of communication and inability to protect secret information both principles of war were a failure resulting in death of many people and dismissal of potentially good commanders of Naval and Air forces. Principles of war include deliberate planning and analyses. Another example provided in “Military Misfortunes”, was a mistake of German Army on western fronts during 1918. German supreme command put together thousands of......

...Email through Blackboard. Ms. Ellis’ Office Hours: Wed 1 - 2:00p and by appointment. Email through Blackboard. Classroom: THEA 182 COURSE DESCRIPTION This course examines dance traditions and cultures from around the world in an exploration of the human search for meaning. From ritual dances that prepare us for weddings and wars, to social dances that reinforce cultural order, to artistic dance performances that express the human condition —dance is alive and evolving where we live. In this way, it tells the story of who we are and who we may become. In this course, you will learn how to think, read, watch, talk and write about dance. We will study world dance forms and artists in the context of spirituality, myth, folklore, history and music. We will also study the nature of the creative process in dance. As we examine dance traditions from around the world, we will study their influence on dance practices here in the Bay Area. Through active participation in dance activities (our daily ‘lab work’), you will gain firsthand knowledge of contemporary modern dance, a North American dance tradition that constantly grows in response to world dance, music and spiritual culture. This quarter our primary focus will be the African Diaspora and American Contemporary Dance. No previous dance experience is necessary for this class, only the willingness to learn! COURSE OBJECTIVES Students will: • Learn about selected cultures through learning and......

... World History Summer 2015 History 101 Dr. Mahdavi Student Learning Goals for Content and Skill Acquisition: This is a course in the history of the human community from approximately 1500 C.E. to the present. The course differs from the traditional Western Civilization class in that the entire world rather than Europe alone is the focus of study. The central questions the course will ask are these: What is Modernity, that is, what do we mean when we ask of "the modern world" in which we live? How have the political, social, cultural, and economic forces that we associate with modernity changed our world and its people during the past 500 years? Why has the intercommunication, interaction, and interdependence of the peoples of the world become so much more intense during the past 500 years than they were in earlier ages? How and why did western civilization rise to global domination in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and how has the challenge of western power and cultural prestige affected the course of history of all the World's people? Finally a question that we should be asking throughout the semester: how have the patterns of world history over the past 500 years determined or affected 1) the way we now live and think, and 2) our prospects for peace, prosperity, and the "pursuit of happiness" in the coming decades? This course is NOT primarily a narrative survey of civilizations, dynasties, and nations. The history of......
