HI 325 - The Beatles: A Cultural History

4.00 credits.
More than a popular musical group, the Beatles (c. 1960-1970), embodied many of the deep changes moving through Western culture in the sixties. Their “long” hair, androgynous look, and genius for producing sounds and lyrics that established rather then followed trends, were all part of the Beatles’ mystique. This course will evaluate the Beatles’ music and how it came to be associated with youth, liberation, “choice,” and, various forms of protest.
