Using Berglund’s “Imagining the City,” critically discuss the California Mid-Winter International Exposition of 1894 and what it tells us about San Francisco modernism. Cite specific examples of how we can think critically about this fair (e.g. commodification, race, gender, modernity, nature, etc.) in relation to modernism. You may also use Olalquiaga’s discussion of the first World’s Fair in her “The Crystal Palace” as an additional critical source. (Required) Critically discuss one of the unique cultural spaces analyzed in either “Living in the City” or “Playing in the City” in Berglund’s text. Feel free to refer to other texts. Your answer should focus on at least one substantive issue discussed in class (e.g. class, race, commodification, nature, modernity, etc.). Bringing more than one of these issues to bear on your reading is encouraged. Feel free to draw from any additional works you may be interested in.
