HONR 201B/401D: Challenging Conformity: American Culture 1950-1970

This class will look at the variety of ways that creative people offered challenges to the social and political status quo that was prevalent in the 1950s and 1960s. We will look at such movements as Abstract Expressionism in Art, the Beats in literature, “sick” comedians, underground film, and the evolution of rock and roll, among other efforts to upset the general cultural tendency towards conformity
