Fifty Years after “Chicago ’68”

Fifty years have passed since the historic 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago that Farber reconstructs in his classic book Chicago ’68. At this gathering, Farber will talk about what 1968 meant to both the progressive and conservative political movements in the U.S. and the potential effect of a 50-year perspective on our political culture today and in the future.

David Farber is the Roy A. Roberts Distinguished Professor at the University of Kansas. His books include Chicago ’68, The Sixties: From Memory to History, Everybody Ought to be Rich and The Rise and Fall of Modern American Conservatism. His history of the American Sixties, The Age of Great Dreams, has been taught in in over 1000 college classrooms. He has lectured on American political history all over the United States and in China, Russia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Japan, Germany, France, Canada, Australia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
