How did the generation that came of age in Europe between the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Beatles change the world? What were the historical factors that made this decade such a unique post-war moment? While the 1960s are usually associated with the cultural, social and political changes that occurred in the United States, with the anti-war and civil rights movements conjuring up the familiar images that we have from this most “youthful” of decades, HISTORY 230 will explore corresponding processes that occurred on the other side of the Atlantic. While the 60s in Europe began with the construction of the Berlin Wall in August 1961, providing a powerful symbol of a continent divided between the Western democracies and the Eastern communist “dictatorships,” this course will explore how many of the historic events and transformations in the cultural and social landscapes of this decade had implications for both sides of Europe. With a primary focus on France, Germany, Britain, Czechoslovakia and the USSR during the 1960s, this course will address the changing contexts of the Cold War; youth movements and popular culture, including the role of new music and film; the problems of de-colonization, immigration and neo-colonialism; terrorism, anti-Americanism and Leftist politics; and the implications for a continent that had now recovered from the devastating effects of World War II. Students will engage with a variety of primary source material in HISTORY 230, including literature, art, films, and music.
