The Sixties in America: From Rebellion to Rights to Commodity   

Our class on America in 60s will ask some simple but also complex questions like:  why did people rebel when they did, who rebelled and who didn’t, what came out of the rebellion, and did it cause the rise of conservative politics in the US? We will look at: Civil Rights, Vietnam, the rise of Feminism (round 2), the Green Movement (in which NU played a key part), and the exit of the traditional unionized working class from the Republican Party.  We will begin with “When did the 60s start and when did they end?”
