AMST 350  Critical Decades The 1960s                              3 credits

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  Few decades in
          recent  American  history  have  generated
          more  controversy  than the  1960s. An era
          once memorably described by the expression
          that  'if you can remember the sixties you
          weren't  really there,' this was an age of
          remarkable political and social change and
          upheaval.  Characterized  by,  among other
          things,  the  Bay  of  Pigs and  the Cuban
          missile crisis; the Vietnam War; the civil
          rights  movement;  the  assassinations  of
          President  John F.  Kennedy, Martin Luther
          King  Jr.,  and Robert  Kennedy; President
          Lyndon   Johnson's   'Great  Society'  the
          counter  culture and Woodstock; as well as
          the  first man on the moon; to say nothing
          of  challenges  to  the status  quo in the
          areas  of  race  and  gender,  this  was a
          decade  that  changed  America.  Beginning
          with   a   brief  look  at  the  allegedly
          conformist fifties and ending in the 1970s
          with  Watergate  and  the  resignation  of
          President  Richard Nixon, this course will
          examine the political, cultural and social
          aspects of that turbulent decade the 1960s

AMST 480  Community in America                                    3 credits

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD AMST 480 0101 is
          crosslisted  with  AMST  680 0101  and LLC
          750A.    The   seminar  will  explore  the
          concepts   of  community  and  culture  in
          American society in the 1960s and 1970s by
          examining  two case  studies: a geographic
          community  (Baltimore) and  a programmatic
          community    oriented   to   international
          service   (the  Peace  Corps).   The  40th
          anniversary  of  the  traumatic  events of
          1968   provides   a   vantage   point  for
          understanding  the  convergence  of forces
          profoundly  affecting both, as illustrated
          by the Baltimore riots/rebellion following
          the  assassination  of Martin  Luther King
          and  by the anti-Vietnam War action of the
          Catonsville 9. The seminar will provide an
          opportunity for primary research.
