UC QTR Units - Division: 4.5 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This seminar addresses select aspects of the Radical Sixties by engaging with recent scholarly interpretations that either tackle the coherence of the epoch as a whole (or its lack thereof) or that speak to specific case studies. With regard to the latter, the seminar geographically focuses on Western Europe, North America, and Latin America (and may also include also one or two sessions on either Africa or Asia). While attentive to the local dynamics of the case studies at hand, the course also explicitly reflects on the Radical Sixties as global history in the making in three ways: first, protest actors in different locations addressed similar problems in similar ways from Paris to Berkeley to Mexico City; second, they were acutely aware of parallels and transnational entanglements in what they perceived as their connected struggles; and third, scholarship on the Radical Sixties has taken a global history turn that makes these connections more apparent than ever before.
