HIST 174 SC - The "American" 1960s


The Sixties has a particular hold on our present. Why? How do we disentangle history from memory, memory from nostalgia? To answer these questions, this course examines the hopes, struggles, and impact of the decade by focusing on conflicts over the meanings of "American" as a source of individual and collective identity and polemical purpose in the U.S. and in the international movements against war, racism and imperialism. Topics include liberalism, civil rights and nationalist movements, immigration, environmentalism, women's liberation and the sexual revolution, the Vietnam War and the national security state, counterculture, and the rise of the New Right. Students will have the opportunity to do the work of historians in original sources.

Course Credit: 1.0
