The Global 60s: Public History in Theory and Practice
This Graduate Seminar will focus on the contradictory nature of cultural production and social change beginning in the the 1960s across the globe, with a particular emphasis on the emergence of Bob Dylan as a cultural icon. Over the term, we will not only get to know the exhibition Retrospectrum, but also explore how Cold War politics impacted everyday forms of expression, from music to art to literature. Particular emphasis will be placed on global youth culture.
