THE LANGUAGE OF THE JAZZ AGE

With Professor Sarah Churchwell, University of London

This lecture explores the “cool” language of American modernism, revealing the surprising history of familiar terms that bridge the 1920s and today, including slang words like “cool” and “jazz,” but also apparently current words that preoccupy our culture, from “robot” to “post-feminist”.
