“Looking Back, Looking Forward” sponsored by the Class of ’68

The late 1960s were turbulent years. The academic routine was broken by civil rights marches, protests of the Vietnam war and the draft, workers’ strikes, marches . . . assassinations. Those of us who experienced this upheaval were affected in many ways. Today, too, we are experiencing another period of crises and challenges. This session invites everyone to participate in discussion of the threads, such as civil engagement, militarization and the U.S.’ global reach that link then and now. We all have different stories and perspectives: what events stand out? How have your values and career been affected? For those of us who survived the 60s, what is your advice to students today? We would like a cross-generation dialog so we hope that recent graduates will join in.
