Hauser Library Exhibition: Reed in the Global Sixties
Friday, May 1 - Monday, June 15
Hauser Library flat cases
This event is open to the public.
This exhibition, courtesy of the Hauser Library special collections, highlights how the political and social phenomena experienced across the U.S. unfolded on campus. The students of History 309, taught by Prof. Shane Dillingham this semester, explored youth culture and social movements throughout Latin America during the long ’60s, contextualized into a global perspective. In their investigation of Reed’s engagement with black politics, women’s liberation, and U.S. foreign policy, they concluded that while Reed is rightly regarded as a very insular, somewhat myopic space, the campus was not immune to the influences of social and ideological forces from around the globe.
