Every generation faces new challenges as the present becomes the past and traditional culture gets questioned by the next generation.
This course will look at five major post-WW2 social movements that swept around the western world, from race rights through feminism up to the modern LBGT right movement.
We will not only look at the history but at the philosophy of the movements - their similarities and differences, and many of the issues that still linger on.
