Talkin' 'bout... you

By Tricia Cornell

October 22nd, 2007


Poll: When one becomes the subject of a college course (honors level, mind you!) should it make one feel like a dinosaur?

My answer: Nah.

Plus, doesn't this American University, taught by Leonard Steinhorn, course sound like fun:

 

HNRS 302.010H TALKING ABOUT MY PARENTS' GENERATION: UNDERSTANDING BABY BOOMERS AND HOW THEY'VE SHAPED

US Lenny Steinhorn

They say that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and if so, this course will help today's students understand themselves better by exploring the values, norms, attitudes and experiences of their Baby Boom parents. We will ask how today's students are similar to and different from their Boomer parents. The course will journey through the Boomer years -- from the idealism, tumult and generational conflict of the Sixties to the reverberations from Vietnam to the changing role of women to the rise of social tolerance to the impact of our media and electronic culture. Emerging from the conformist Fifties, Boomers broke the cultural mold and set in motion vast social changes that continue to shape and transform our politics, social order, and very own lives. Get to know yourselves, your parents, and America better through this course. MAJOR CREDIT: HISTORY; POLS (Related Social Science Requirement); SIS (U.S. Politics); SOC (Media Studies/all majors); and SOCIOLOGY
