Lecture by Professor Gil Troy

Thu, 2006-03-02 19:00
NW Rm 205, 4250 Connecticut Ave. (entrance in courtyard), Washington : NW Rm 205, 4250 Connecticut Ave. (entrance in courtyard), Washington

This lecture will go beyond the clashing oversimplifications of both the "eighties decadence" and "Reagan Renewal" stereotypes, seeing how the 1980s shaped our lives for better and worse.
