The Transnational Sixties in Britain and America: American Student Revolutionaries in Britain's "1968"

Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 4:30pm to 6:30pm

Cornell University, McGraw Hall, Room 366 141 Central Avenue, Ithaca, NY

David Fowler of the University of Cambridge to speak on September 6, 2018!  

On Thursday, September 6th at 4:30 PM, Dr. David Fowler will speak in McGraw Hall, Room 366.

The title of his talk is The Transnational Sixties in Britain and America: American Student Revolutionaries in Britain’s “1968”.

This talk, sponsored by the Cornell Department of History and the Cornell Institute for European Studies, is free and open to the public.

David Fowler teaches Modern History and Politics at the University of Cambridge where he is a Life Member of Clare Hall Cambridge. His last book, Youth Culture in Modern Britain, c. 1920-c.1970: From Ivory Tower to Global Movement-A New History (Macmillan, 2008), attracted leading articles in The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph and was featured on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thinking Allowed’.

From August to October 2018 David Fowler is Visiting Professor in History at Amherst College, Massachusetts, where he is researching a major biography of Marshall Bloom; a key figure in the British and American Student Movements of the 1960s. Bloom touched on many of the central themes of the Transnational Sixties-student travel and the international student movement; civil rights and humanitarian causes; student journalism; and student protest in Britain and the United States in a burgeoning media age. Fowler’s forthcoming biographical study of Marshall Bloom will shine a light on the prime movers of the Sixties’ Cultural Revolutions in the United States, Britain, and Europe.

McGraw Hall is across from Goldwin Smith on the Arts and Sciences Quad at Cornell.  An easy bus ride from downtown and the Ithaca Mall.  TCAT. schedule.
