One Day University: Bruce Springsteen’s American Vision
Lecturer: Louis Masur – Trinity College
In his lecture Bruce Springsteen's American Vision, Professor Louis Masur situates Springsteen’s music in a broader cultural context. Springsteen is part of a long tradition of American songwriters who have given thought to the meanings of America, and his music connects to some of the most fundamental issues in our culture: the place of faith in our lives, the nature of work, our sense of community, the dream of escape and the search for love.
We will examine how Springsteen delivers on these themes both lyrically and musically, how his vision has shifted over time, and the role of rock ‘n’ roll as an agent of change.
Louis Masur is the author of Runaway Dream: Born to Run and Bruce Springsteen's American Vision (2009) and has also written about Springsteen for Slate, Salon, Backstreets, and other publications.
