Primary Instructor:

“Hippies”, “Flower-Children”, “Tree-Huggers”, were names given to members of a generation who dared split from convention, questioned authority and fought against social injustice. In Germany, they became known as the “68iger” generation.

The name encompasses a varied agenda of left-leaning student and non-student lead movements that included environmentalism, the women’s movement, protests against the Vietnam War, the rejection of traditional Bildung und Erziehung, and the sexual revolution. 1968 was the year in which many of those causes escalated.

  • What were the causes for that escalation?
  • Why did those movements come into existence in the first place?
  • How did members of this generation express their discontent?
  • What exactly were their goals?
  • Did the Student Movement occur in East Germany?
  • Where did the intersections between men and women, Germany and America, Europe and the world occur?

In this course we will explore answers to those questions by examining texts, film, articles, essays, songs, and poems. We will contrast them with current manifestations of student activity, questioning the difference between student power then and now, all within the framework of improving German language skills and German cultural understanding.

Class Format:

The language of instruction and discussion will be German.
