Hi Daniela from Comanche, TX...hope you had a great day in school.
Thanks for connecting with Wyzant...I am here to help.
Your question is one which isn't easy to answer. Not that it is difficult, but this is like asking a question like, how or why are animals the colors that they are? Well...the next question might be, what kind of animals, those that walk on 4 legs, have fur, have feathers, live on land...etc...
So Daniela...I'm going to give you some ideas and direction, then it will be up to you which directions and how in depth you want to go.
I'll give your some examples to show you how you might give an idea...
Let me give give you a single subject: war
- There was the Vietnam war...there were certain movies, art, and music, which supported the war, were against the war, against the government, influenced by the drugs, the riots in cities and any number of factors which influenced the people and events of just that specific event/era of the time.
- On the same subject, there have been movies, music, public discussion, art and literature which were during the times of other wars, WWII, Korean War and most recently war in the Middle East.
Here is another topic or subject which has reflected social and cultural expression, taking place at the time of those events, we say contemporary
Let's take the topic of computers and the turn of the century, 2000
- There have been movies, literature, art, music, plays and other forms of cultural expression associated with the advancement of the computer and the public's accessibility to the internet. Focusing on the threat of computers, artificial intelligence, science fiction, loss of person privacy, camera's everywhere. Now we have news, movies and daily cultural changes associated to bitcoin, Panama Papers and possible Russian interference in our elections.
