A History of America’s Generations
A generation is composed of people whose common location in history lends them a collective persona. What motivates each generation changes as cultural and civic forces create differences? We begin with an examination of how the 50s and 60s shaped the war and post-war generations, reveling in what class participants have in common and what brings us together. The second session summarizes the research on subsequent generations, such as our kids and neighbors, whom we may not quite understand, but can grow to appreciate. How have forces such as recession and the digital revolution shaped them? Finally, we examine the theory that as history shaped generations, the types of generations prevalent at the time shaped American history.
