Seminar Description


Bruce Springsteen has spent much of his adult life examining the gap between the American Dream and the American reality, between how we hope to live and how we actually do. This course will examine Springsteen and his body of work through the discussion of four broad themes: class, religion, social justice, and community. Four sessions.


June Sawyers has published four books on Bruce Springsteen, including Racing in the Street: the Bruce Springsteen Reader, and has lectured extensively on his work.
