RELI1031

The 1960s

The 1960s
In this course we will study the major social movements of the 1960s: the Civil Rights movement and Black Power, the New Left and New Right, the Anti-Vietnam War movement, and new religious movements. Beyond tracing the history and development of these movements, we also consider how activists of the period shaped the emergent Sixties counterculture. Finally, we follow activists into adulthood and consider how the Sixties experience influenced the course of their lives. This course counts as elective credit towards the Sociology/Anthropology major.
