ENGL 59000: Reading the Sixties

Mind-altering substances, sounds, and works of art. Earth-shaking social movements for radical change. A permanent sexual revolution. One giant leap for mankind. There is general agreement that something enormously transformative called “the Sixties” took place around the world in the twentieth century, but there is widespread disagreement about what that transformation was and what it meant. What kind of project was “the Sixties”? Was it a success or a failure? How do we live with the consequences of that success or failure?
