Throughout the history of the United States of America, our society has played a major role in what our country has become. War, technology, and economics have changed American society for the better. One of the first impacts to American society was the introduction to railroads and big business. This allotted more jobs for American and immigrant workers. This also created the Second Industrial Revolution, which created interconnected transport and communication networks.
Ever since the birth of the new nation, people were focused in one thing, progression. Progression defined a specific time period. This is known as the Progressive Era which took place from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. It was a time of social activism and political reform. However, due to the corruption in society and shifted morals, the progressive moments definition was based on perception.
Introduction In this essay I will discuss the impact XX Century modernism had on animation. I will also analyse its importance and relevance as a way of understanding its principals and origins. Modernism is usually confused as a form of art which ‘is modern’ with it’s own set of principals and a unique ways of assessing art. Everyone has their on opinion on the subject but one thing is certain, art was stagnating and in need of something new . The modernism movement went from the late 19th century over to the 1960’s.
Europe at the beginning of the 20th century saw the development of ‘mass society’; the continual developing industrial sprawl, mass housing, mass class bound fashions, mass political, mass production and new imperialism defined this period. Thus, concerns for the individual became forefront within society and subsequently saw the progress of human rights in the latter half of the century. European modernity can be defined as the development of the human rights movement, built upon these early 20th century concerns for the individual. European imperialism during the first half of the century, saw Western powers conquer Africa and parts of Asia, as trade became imperative for the growth of domestic economies.

Modern architecture or modernist architecture is a term applied to an overarching movement, with its exact definition and scope varying widely. The term is often applied to modernist movements at the turn of the 20th century, with efforts to reconcile the principles underlying architectural design with rapid technological advancement and the modernization of society.

Album Covers The visual media form that I have chosen to use as my case study for this assignment is album covers/artwork. I chose this specific media form as I believe it has had a fascinating evolution throughout the years. Album covers have changed in numerous ways since they were first invented in 1910, they have gone from physical to digital in a relatively short period of time and both technology and society have played an influential role in the development of album covers. These factors continue to heavily impact the direction in which the evolution of album covers is headed. Album covers are more than just images used as a display on the front of CDs or records.
During the 20th century There were various social and profitable changes that the American society had underwent. These changes included modifications in technology and science, government roles, gender roles, health and wellbeing, and the conceptions of freedom. Progressive reformers desired to cast out corruption that was in the government, adjust some of the business forms, approach health threats, and boost the working conditions. Reformers also made a stand to provide the public with better direct control to be over the government through straightforward primaries that proposed candidates for the public office, absolute elections of senators, women’s suffrage, and recall. By the opening of the 20th century, libeling journalists were beginning to cause an uproar of the mishandling of child labor laws, fraudulency in the city’s
This one and a half century old theory of art competed against innumerable theories such as the mimetic theory, the pragmatic theory, etc., all of which have been thoroughly discussed in the essay.

It has been evident that America has moved “toward greater civil liberties” rather rapidly through the 20th century. The cultural shift of American lives has shown how much people were inspired by the idea of having basic civil rights. From the start of the 20th century to the end of the century, the cultural change was very monumental to lives of people and society today. It is very evident just from the past century how true James McGreevey’s quote actually is. The progressive era started on the end of the Gilded Age where Americans started to get sick and tired of oppression against farmers and factory workers.
The Industrial Revolution in the 1900s was a time of substantial transformation throughout society. Not only did countries become greatly dependent upon one another, but it has also influenced people’s lifestyles and the global economy. The effects of this are still relevant today. Of course this has brought many benefits, but resulting factors such as urbanization and the hunger for industrial and global economic growth has led to many problems, not the least of which is climate change. The Industrial Revolution started in the 18th century and has severely influenced the way humans interact with each other and their environment.
The year 1919 or to say the early period during the 20th century is also known as the First Red Scare in the history of the United States of America. There was a widespread fear of Bolshevism and anarchism all over the United States, which was influenced by the Russian Revolution as well as the Worldwide Communist Revolution.
