Barrack Obama’s presidency, with its invocation of John F. Kennedy’s legend, invites a wider discussion of how 1960s socio-political movements, philosophies, and art may be transformed, reinterpreted, and redeployed in the 21st century. We welcome papers engaging the legacy of 1960s American countercultural or revolutionary literature, visual arts, and/or music, and how they resonate in the collective consciousness, not simply as repositories for nostalgia but as viable, if problematic, strategies for inspiring “hope” and effecting “change.”

Please visit PAMLA website for submission guidelines: www.pamla.org. Do not submit papers directly to contact emails from this site.
