FYS 101 Not That Seventies Show

This course will offer students an opportunity to consider this pivotal decade in American history through a sampling of its music, literature, TV shows and films, as well as through scholarship in the areas of cultural and political history. We will engage in an in-depth exploration of the impact of this decade on the lives of Americans, considering such issues as: the Vietnam War, Watergate, the oil crisis, the radicalization of the civil rights and women’s movements, the rise of the religious right, environmentalism, and encounters with terrorism.
