Colloquium: Crisis of Confidence: American History and Culture in the 1970s

Comparative American Studies 443 or History 443

Usual Description

Explores the decade between the `groovy 60s’ and `Age of Reagan’ as a distinct era in American history and a critical period whose legacies continue to inform our contemporary world. Through consideration of developments including Watergate, the oil crisis, white backlash, the `Battle of the Sexes,’ and punk music, we interrogate how such moments shed light on contestations over national identity, inclusion, and power in an era regarded as a high point of American cynicism.
