In this course we will recall, discuss, and reflect upon some of the significant historical, political, and cultural events that occurred in 1968. Topics include the anti-war and youth movements, political assassinations, the presidential election conventions, and the Olympics, plus popular television, music, and movies. Personal reminiscences will be welcomed.

In June 1968, Doug Rose graduated from high school and entered college that September. Forty years later, his freshman composition students at SUNY Canton read and wrote about the significant impacts that remarkable year had on our nation and the world. He now looks forward to groovin’ and talkin’ ‘bout the ‘60s generation with his peers.

NOTE: Recommended book: 1968: The Year That Rocked the World, by Mark Kurlansky (Random House, 2005).
