HYBRID: In the classroom and online. A Zoom link will be sent to all one day before class.
Climb into our time machine and join us for a trip back to the Sixties. We will recall the events of 60 years ago by discussing Robert S. McElvaine’s 2022 book, The Times They Were a-Changin’ in which he focuses on what he calls the long year of 1964: late 1963 to the summer of 1965. Class members are encouraged, but not required, to read the book prior to the class. Susan will review its contents in the first hour, and in the second hour we will share our experiences of that time period. Our second class will also allow time for discussion following a presentatipn relating to the impact of 1964 on our country today. While McElvaine only hints at the subject, Susan will share 15 titles that speak to whether or not we learned from the events in the 1960s. Susan Nenadic holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in history and English. She is known for her integration of history and literature in teaching, and is the author of several books and articles, including A Purse of Her Own: Occupations of 19th Century Women, and Legendary Locals of Ann Arbor.
