Rethinking the Global 1960s: A Roundtable Discussion
The Department of Humanities at St Mary’s University is proud to present a series of lectures showcasing historical research and scholarship. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Dr Sinead McEneaney, Dr Mark Donnelly, Dr Richard Mills, ‘Rethinking the Global 1960s: A Roundtable Discussion’ - Thursday 6th December 2018, 6:15 pm, Waldegrave Drawing Room
The 1960s were amongst the most tumultuous decades in modern history. Radical political protest, cultural change, the global conflict of the Cold War, all informed by a growing sense of generational division, produced movements that resonate with present day relevance.
In this panel discussion, three experts on the period will reconsider the significance of the 1960s. Dr Sinead McEneaney is an expert on female political activists in the 1960s, Dr Mark Donnelly is the author of Sixties Britain: Culture, Society and Politics (Routledge), and Dr Richard Mills is currently writing a book on the Beatles and Fan Culture for Bloomsbury.
