Bob Dylan accurately characterized the 60's when he wrote "The Times They
Are a Changin," and 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. In this course we will explore the changing times of
the 60's through works of literature, including On the Road, Electric
Kool-Aid Acid Test, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Fire Next Time, The
Bell Jar, Goodbye Columbus, The Things They Carried, Dispatches, and
Everything We Had!
