HIST181 PO - Sex, Drugs, and Revolution: The Global Sixties

When Offered: Last offered spring 2016.
Instructor(s): V.Silverman
Credit: 1

Cultural, social and political upheavals shook countries around the world in the 1960s. Revolutions succeeded and failed, demonstrators marched for justice, youth around the world embraced radical politics and culture and conservatives fought back. The class is a journey through the major movements of the era from the late 1950s to the early 1970s, both in the U.S. and around the world. It starts with the civil rights movement and third world nationalism and ends with the rise of the New Right and the coups d’etat of the 1970s. It takes stops along the way to understand student radicalism, the anti-war movement, decolonization, urban rebellions, countercultures, Black power, feminism and gay liberation. The class will particularly explore the ideas that guided these movements in their political and economic contexts. Previously offered as HIST138  PO.
