    We often think of the Cold War in terms of the nuclear standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union, or the “hot” wars in Korea and Vietnam. But the Cold War had a cultural dimension as well, and books, movies, music, and painting were routinely enlisted in the struggle against communism.

    How do we remember the 1960s? As the Age of Aquarius, a time of harmony and understanding — buoyed by sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll — when America stood on the verge of achieving its promise of freedom and equality? Or as a period of violence and discord — fueled by war, riots, and assassinations — when America began to fall apart, when the seeds of today’s intense polarization were sown? Or both? Join us to explore how we remember those tumultuous years and learn why those memories matter now.

    How do we remember the 1950s? As the climax of the American Century, when returning GIs and their wives settled into suburbia to have lots of children and enjoy the fruits of living in the only major industrial power left standing after World War II? Or as an age of conformity and anxiety, when anyone who challenged the status quo was suspect and Americans were poised to retreat to fall-out shelters? Or both? Join us to explore how we remember those mid-century years and learn why those memories matter now.

    Americans once told themselves a story about the religious tolerance of the Puritans and other Europeans who fled persecution in Europe to find sanctuary in North America. Some textbooks tell that story even today. More common now, however, is a realistic portrayal of the motives and perspectives of religious Americans, from the colonial period through the twentieth century. It renders Americans considerably less tolerant than the traditional story reported. Why were Americans for so long pictured as all but free of religious intolerance? Who was intolerant and on what scale?

    How you answer “Who started the Cold War?” depends on how you define the Cold War. Some scholars view it as a struggle between two powerful countries for world dominance. Another view holds that U.S. leaders perceived the Soviet Union as a threat to the security of the United States and reacted defensively. A mirror image holds that Soviet leaders perceived the United States as a threat to their country’s security.
