The Magical History Tour: Nostalgia as the Dominant Cultural Trend of the Late 1960s


The Sixties are forever billed as being ‘revolutionary’, the boomer generation forever feted for creating ‘newness’ in everything from fashion to film.  In the half century since it all happened, we have been so brainwashed into believing that the era was a decade of ‘firsts’ that we’ve becoming blind to the incredibly obvious reality: the Late 1960s was fueled by nostalgia, the young of the era embracing and then contorting Victorian, Edwardian, and Wild Western themes and aesthetics to make a socio-political statement that was far stronger than had they actually done something ‘new’.

Interdisciplinary Learning with the Best Professors


Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
