Thanks for your fascinating "What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been: Race, Social Movements, and the 2016 Presidential Race" talk on Presidential elections recently at Stanford - http://events.stanford.edu/events/639/63909/. I was really inspired. Thanks too so much for your signature afterward.
I'm glad you didn't mention as part of your "What a long strange trip it's been ..." talk the firsts of Obama being the first black 2 term US President (with a Muslim middle name), and the somewhat popular unpopular Hillary Clinton potentially being the first 2 term woman US President. How best might one develop the question or thesis in a paper that this could partly be a consequence of the freedom-seeking student movements of the 1960s, thinking differently which emerges from this, and even especially widespread entheogen consumption in the 60s and 70, I wonder?
In addition to ... you might also find CC World University and School interesting - and a possible job source for your graduate students in many languages. WUaS seeks to create the Stanfords/Harvards of the Internet in all ~ 200 nation states - http://worlduniversity.
wikia.com/wiki/Nation_States - each of which will become a major online wiki university offering CC Bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D., as well as I.B. high school diplomas (accrediting on CC MIT OCW in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC). WUaS is Creative Commons' licensed on our non-profit side, and very CC MIT OCW-centric & CC Yale OYC-centric. While MIT OCW doesn't have a sociology department, WUaS would like to develop best CC sociology open course ware, also in many languages.
But on the wiki mind-expanding side, WUaS is a like CC Wikipedia (now in 358 languages) and planning online wiki schools for open teaching and learning in all 7,097 living languages. Anyone can teach to their web cameras or add computer coding in the way they'd like. And classes with happen in Google group video Hangouts and MIT UnHangouts, for face-to-face conversation (re Reed College's conference method approach).
Here are four examples of wiki subjects (in English so far only) related to your talk last evening:
(accessible here at the main wiki Subjects' page at WUaS - http://worlduniversity.wikia.
Check out the MIT OCW and CC Yale OYC here - eventually for credit - as well as the open resources.
Thank you, and for your fantastic talk.
Best regards, Scott
Here's the fascinating Stanford Sociologist Doug McAdams in an 8 minute video -
Nice to zone in again on his thinking after hearing him for an hour and an half yesterday on Wednesday. :) He's kind of simpatico ...
Doug's a great model, if and when I start to give Harbin launch talks and interviews - here's an interview with him in Peninsula Peace and Justice Center ...
