Discussion with Ralph Abraham – A Gender Tipping Point: Hip Santa Cruz in the 1960s and 70s


Save to:

Researchers Anonymous presents a discussion with Ralph Abraham. UCSC Professor Emeritus Abraham is the creator of the Santa Cruz Hip History Project and editor of two books: Hip Santa Cruz Volumes 1 and 2, with Volume 3 on the way. He observes, “from the florescence of hip culture in Santa Cruz in the 1960s there emerged the longer lasting feminist revolution of the 1970s.” This presentation promises to be a fun opportunity to “speculate together on the dynamics of this important bifurcation.” And as history researchers how do we capture and relate events that happened in many of our own lifetimes?
