HIS 461 America in the Sixties

This course will examine the 1960s, one of the most turbulent eras in U.S. history. Over 30 years after the decade ended, the 1960s remain important to historians and the public, one of the most contested territories of the past. To better understand this period, students will be introduced to a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, ranging from political manifestos and speeches to the music of the era. Most of the classes will be conducted as a seminar, and class participation is central to success in the course.
