Primary Instructor:


In this half-semester course, we encounter radical voices such as those of Tom Hayden, founder of SDS; Tariq Ali, the Oxford student who became the media spokesperson of Britain’s student revolt; Mandy Merck, feminist cultural critic; and the Jamaican Rhodes Scholar Trevor Munroe. A new generation of historians examines the revolutionary movements on university campuses in the late Sixties. We incorporate the latest research on Oxford’s cultural revolution involving American students abroad, women’s liberation, Vietnam War protests, anti-colonialism, and the reimagining of university education. Many of these young activists like Frank Aller, Bill Clinton, Germaine Greer, Strobe Talbott, and Robert Reich wrote about their formative experiences and subsequently became statesmen, public intellectuals, or leading political figures. The course explores individuals and contextual in the wider context of the American student movement of the Sixties and racial conflict in the United States. We shine a light especially on how the Universities of Michigan and Oxford were transformed by the radical movements of the Sixties and the persons who led them.
