ANTH 001D. First-Year Seminar: Counterculture
If culture is a battlefield, nowhere was this expressed more clearly than in the countercultural tumult that beset North American civil society during the Cold War. This First-Year Seminar will analyze the dynamics of cultural friction by bringing some of anthropology's key concepts and comparative insights to bear on the countercultural campaigns that coalesced during the second half of the twentieth century. In so doing, our broader project will be to ask what countercultural friction can teach us about the machinations of power in the contemporary world.
