HIST 089 PZ -The Sixties


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course will examine the now much mythologized period of American history known as “the sixties.” It will inevitably deal with the sordid history of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll,” as well as histories of revolting youth. But just as importantly, the course will be driven by three theoretical questions. First, what is the relationship between the political activism of bourgeois youth in the “the sixties” and ritualized processes of social reproduction, experienced as the transition from “childhood” to “adulthood”? Second, what is the relationship between the leftist politics of “the sixties” and the historical formation of professional managerial classes in U.S. and world history? And third, how do singular events-such as the decade’s iconic assassination of President John F. Kennedy-articulate with cultural schemas?

Prerequisite(s): HIST 021 PZ/ANTH 021 PZ or concurrent enrollment in HIST 021 PZ/ANTH 021 PZ. Please also check the current course schedule for requirements.

Cross-listing: ANTH 089 PZ
