From the Kennedys to the Kardashians: A Sociological Analysis of Culture and Consumption in the United States" This course analyzes the manner in which the relationship between culture and consumption has transformed in the United States in the aftermath of World War II to the present. When the United States started to emerge as a superpower in the late 1950s and early 1960s, a process accompanied by the Cold War, the Kennedys became cultural icons. In the current post-Cold War era, they seem to have been replaced by the Kardashians. What does this transformation indicate in terms of the relationship between culture and consumption?
