The Changing 1960s
This project aims to closely examine the changing social history of both England and America during the 1960s, and also to compare the two countries during this decade. I will attempt to make comparisons between art, music, politics, and technology from the background research I complete. The 1960s is a time that has always interested me because many social movements, like feminism and the civil rights movement, became so prominent in America and I am interested to see how that compares to England. At WPI I have completed 2 history courses and 1 Philosophy course, HI 1332, HI 2332, and PY 1731.
I suggest you save this section for last. Describe the essence of this project. Cover what the project is and who cares in the first two sentences. Then cover what others have done like it, how your project is different. Discuss the extent to which your strategy for completing this project was new to you, or an extension of previous HUA experiences.
As you continue to think about your project milestones, reread the "Goals" narrative on defining project milestones from the HU2900 syllabus. Remember: the idea is to have equip your milestone with a really solid background and then some sort of "thing that you do". You'll need to add in some narrative to describe why you did the "thing that you did", which you'd probably want to do anyway. You can make it easy for your advisors to give you a high grade by ensuring that your project milestone work reflects careful, considerate, and comprehensive thought and effort in terms of your background review, and insightful, cumulative, and methodical approaches toward the creative components of your project milestone deliverables.
Section 1: Background
I will be examining Music, Art, Politics, and Technology of the 1960s in England and America and determining which country had the most influence on the other and comparing their similarities and differences.
Section 2: Deliverable
America vs. England
Who influenced who?
In this section, provide a summary or recap of your work, as well as potential areas of further inquiry (for yourself, future students, or other researchers).
