Field of Dreams:
The Image of the Sixties in American
Thursday, March 27 6:00 PM
Assistant Professor of
History Dr. Christopher Stone will examine the 1960s
through the lens of film. He will discuss the Celluloid
Sixties—the 60s as imagined, depicted, and interpreted by
American filmmakers—by looking at films like American
Graffiti and Animal House and what they say about the
relationship of the Fifties and Sixties. He’ll also look
closely at movies like the Big Chill and Sneakers that
examine the post-Sixties experiences of individuals who
strongly identified with the social movements and cultural
upheaval of the Sixties. Join us for a chance to see
history through a different lens!
