9780226317588: Cultural Excursions: Marketing Appetites and Cultural Tastes in Modern America

Neil Harris's scholarship of the past twenty-five years has helped to open up the study of American cultural history. This long-awaited collection gathers some of his rich and varied writings. Harris takes us from John Philip Sousa to Superman, with stops along the way to explore art museums and world fairs, shopping malls and hotel lobbies, urban design and utopian novels, among other artifacts of American cultures.

The essays fall into three general sections: the first treats the history of cultural institutions, highlighting the role of museums; the second section focuses on some literary, artistic, and entrepreneurial responses to the new mass culture; and the final group of essays explores the social history of art and architecture. Throughout Harris's diverse writings certain themes recur—the redefining of boundaries between high art and popular culture, the relationship between public taste and technological change, and the very notion of what constitutes a shared social experience. Harris's pioneering work has broadened the field of cultural history and encouraged whole new areas of inquiry. Cultural Excursions will be useful for those in American and culture studies, as well as for the general reader trying to make sense of the culture in which we live.

About the Author:

Neil Harris, professor of history at the University of Chicago, is the author of The Artist in American Society: The Formative Years, 1790-1860 and Humbug: The Art of P. T. Barnum, both published by the University of Chicago Press.

From Publishers Weekly:

These 17 works by a University of Chicago history professor and author of The Artist in American Society are "essays" in a splendid sense: the entertaining record of an astute observer venturing into American cultural history in search of meanings and patterns. The first section looks into the historical roles of cultural institutions as educators, conservators and avatars of progress p. 94 . Harris compares art museums, for instance, with world's fairs and department stores as "merchandisers of taste." p. 52 The second group of essays touches on "the boundaries and intersections of cultures and media" with topics as varied as utopian fiction, the consumer as a social type in American novels, and John Philip Sousa's singular talent and stunning commercial success in combining popular and classical music. In the last pieces Harris considers "the social history of art and architecture," through subjects ranging from the rise of shopping malls to the shift of art patronage from wealthy individuals to wealthy corporations.
