  1. The textbook highlights the significant emergence of new cultural  trends due to improved technology (radio, movies, photography) and the  spread of books & magazines (writers) in the “roaring” 1920s as well  as in the 1930s, and also to new movements like the Harlem Renaissance,  consumerism, and new “norms” for women.
    • Consider the new technology of radio and photography. With  specific examples from the 1920s, discuss how these new technologies  helped one of the movements and trends above.
