Revolution!

Students consistently have been at the forefront of social change. This course examines inter-connected global revolutionary movements with an emphasis on student demonstrations.  Early independence activism of the late 19th and early 20th centuries impacted the anti-authority movements of the 1960s leading us to our focus on 1968.  We will use music, cultural analysis, film and memoirs to identify what brought students together over which issues and what are the lasting effects of their efforts.  Furthermore, we will look at contemporary rebellions and revolts that are connected to ones of the past.
