HON 216 - The Sixties

Credit Hour(s): 3
The Sixties is an interdisciplinary course that explores the political, cultural, and scientific changes that marked this turbulent and influential decade in American history. Our discussions will cover topics ranging from presidential decisions to popular culture. We’ll look carefully at the operations of the U. S. Government in both domestic (Great Society) and foreign (Cold War and Vietnam War) policy; we’ll also consider the challenges to the status quo posed by the Civil Rights Movement, the student anti-war movement, and the Women’s Movement. We’ll learn about the “race in space” that culminated in the lunar landing. In addition, we’ll explore changes in cultural values represented in literature and journalism, the visual arts, and music. 3 Credit(s).
