Présentation

Le peuplement américain des origines à nos jours

Rebellion and Reaction in the United States, 1960s to the present

This class will explore the dialectic of rebellion and reaction that has accompanied the reconfiguration of the US population since the 1960s. We will focus on the minority empowerment movements of the 1960s and 1970s (civil rights, black power, brown power, feminism, gay liberation, etc.), as well as the suburban-based New Right movements to roll back minority and immigrant rights, reduce the role of the state in social and economic life, and promote conservative social values in public life.
