The course is open to students in all majors, and students enrolled in the College of the Liberal Arts may request through their adviser to substitute it as a GH or GS.
1968 is one of the rare years in human history during which there was far-reaching conflict and change around the world. Parallel, though not always related, protests, violence, and war, as well as economic, environmental, and artistic concerns affected most regions on earth. This course on the year 1968 is therefore intended to highlight and discuss some of the events of this year, so pivotal in modern human history. The course encompasses numerous topics—the political and social history leading up to and including 1968; the contemporary developments in media, art, and music; the multiple arenas of war and protest; various environmental and scientific engagements; as well as the very local adjustments to life at Penn State.
