Blue Spruce: Reed College Meeting, How to teach counterculture (of the 1960s/70s) academically and in 2015? "Counterculture," "1960s," "Anthropology" wiki Subjects at WUaS, Actual / Virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic manuscript, "Naked Harbin: Hippies, Warm Pools, Counterculture & Clothing-Optional, Virtual Harbin," The Rainbow Gathering might be one great field site for this, for example ...

Hi Tom, 
(... who has a Harvard Ph.D. in Anthropology and is a professor of Anthropology at UCLA),

Very nice to meet and talk with you a little at Reed Reunions. My question in your Reed College panel on the 1960s was in what ways might one best teach "Counterculture" (of the 1960s/70s) now that that time recedes, and also in terms of actual courses (and syllabi), possibly for credit toward a major.  

I enjoyed hearing your methodologically oriented approach to studying family and "counterculture" which paper's reference - 

Weisner, T.S. (2001). The American dependency conflict: Continuities and discontinuities in behavior and values of countercultural parents and their children. Ethos 29(3): 271-295 - 

I'll look to add to the following wiki Subjects at best STEM-centric, wiki and CC World University and School -  

Check out too the beginning Anthropology wiki subject page at WUaS which will probably be a major at WUaS based on MIT OCW courses to begin:

I've just finished writing an actual / virtual Harbin Hot Springs' ethnographic manuscript with plans to build a virtual Harbin as ethnographic field site eventually for ethnographic comparison with the actual (hopefully now in a Google-made virtual earth), and am sending it off to another publisher soon. It would great to converse about my book entitled something like "Naked Harbin: Hippies, Warm Pools, Counterculture & Clothing-Optional, Virtual Harbin" over time, as well, given your knowledge about researching and teaching "counterculture" if you will. 

Accrediting CC World University and School would like to become the Harvard of the Internet and in all 200 countries' main languages, and wiki schools in all of nearly ~8,000 languages. 

Thanks again for your presentation and hope to keep in touch. 

Best regards, 

Some links of yours at which I'll check out further your papers:  

Thank you, again!


The Rainbow Gathering might be one great field site for this, for example ...

"The 2015 rainbow family of living light world peace and healing gathering will take place July 1-7, 2015, in MaineNew HampshireVermontMichiganWisconsinIndianaIllinois, or South Dakota. Ignore all rumors of cancellation or organization!"
