MSU Wonderlust A Half Century Later, a Look Back: America in 1968

Belgrade Community Library

Upcoming Dates & Times


Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 6:00pm - 7:30pm

Rob Maher will talk about the many prominent threads of 20th century America that converged in 1968 and explore how echoes of that year still linger in our in our country today. In 1968, the Vietnam war was in full swing, as was the anti-war movement. The country endured the assassination of two leaders and several riots. Fifty years on, how did 1968 shape what was to come for us individually and us as a nation? Are there lessons from 1968 that could illuminate our contemporary political and social landscape?

Rob Maher is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at MSU who includes American history as one of his many research interests.

The talk is from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend, but registration is requested as seating is limited. Visit http://www.montana.edu/wonderlust and click “View all offerings” or go directly to https://eu.courses.montana.edu/CourseStatus.awp?&course=19SWL1968
