Event Description

TITLE: The Sixties: An Interdisciplinary Seminar
DATE: March 23, 2017
LOCATION: Montclair State University, Room TBA
TIME: 9:00 AM-3:00 PM
INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Greg Waters

In the tumultuous decade of the sixties, literature, music and film were all transformed by political events, and to some extent political events were transformed by popular culture as well. This seminar is designed for anyone interested in exploring the intersections of politics and culture, and in considering the lasting impact of the civil rights movement, Vietnam, the counterculture, Black power, the women’s movement, gay liberation and Watergate on America. This decade was a period of incredible hope, turmoil, despair and desperation, one that shaped a generation and transformed America. The seminar will examine a variety of forms of expression including poetry (Ginsberg, O’Hara, Sylvia Plath), music(Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan), film clips ( Rebel Without a Cause, Apocalypse Now), and political documents (the Port Huron Statement, NOW Bill of Rights) to try to come to an understanding of what occurred and what has remained. Recommended for teachers of English and history, women’s studies and politics. Also for anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of the period.
