College Of Arts And Sciences | The Literature of the '60s
E103 | 0089 | Ziegler, C
Bob Dylan accurately characterized the '60s when he wrote The Times
They Are A-Changin'. Those who were making the changes were students.
Questioning the authority of parents, teachers, clergy, police, and
government officials was standard practice as young adults
experimented with drugs, redefined standards of sexual relationships,
questioned university academic policies, supported racial equality,
and protested the government's involvement in Vietnam. Books such as
On the Road, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest, The Fire Next Time, The Bell Jar, Goodbye Columbus,
The Things They Carried, Dispatches, and Everything We Had! are used
to introduce students to the changing times of the '60s. Note: This
course is reserved for students residing in the Living Learning
Center at Collins.
