About this 1960s Discovery Course & the Professor
This First Year (Freshman) Discovery course is a sociological examination of the exciting I 960s! The primary objective of the course is to provide students an opportunity to: ( 1 ) discuss the popular youth cultures of the 1960s; (2) analyze the diversity of social, educational, political, and cultural concerns, themes, events, issues, leaders, and changes; and (3) reflect on the legacies of the 1 960s youth generation. Against the soundtrack of rock and roll, folk, pop, soul, rock, and other genres of music by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Temptations, Supremes, Beach Boys, Jimi Hendrix, Mamas and Papas, and other artists and festivals at Monterey and Woodstock, we explore concerns expressed not only by a diversity of political leaders (John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon) and social movement leaders (Mario Savio, Betty Friedan, Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcolm X, Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Septima Clark,Yuri Kochiyama) but also by a diversity of youth cultures (Flower Children/Hippies, Yippies, Diggers, Merry Pranksters, Politicos), fashions, fads, dances, poetry, slang, literature, and social movement protests in/outside of schools and colleges/ universities (esp. students rights, Free Speech Movement, Vietnam/Antiwar protest, Women's/Feminist, African American, Chicano/a, Native American, Asian American, LGBT, disabled, immigrant, and alternative school movements) .
