The Behavioral and Social Sciences Department of San Jacinto College North Campus is presenting Counterculture Through the Ages: 50th Anniversary of 1968! on April 10, a presentation exploring cultural movements ranging from modern and religious countercultures to tattoo trends and veganism.

This event is the third and final installment in a series that looks at different topics through the lenses of history, philosophy, government, and music.

Cody Pogue, a government professor on the North Campus, said the purpose of the series is to examine an interesting subject from a variety of perspectives.

“The hope is that, by attending these events, students will walk away with a clear understanding of the countercultures of the past and present, as well as with questions about to what extent they should accept or reject the social norms of the culture in which they live,” Pogue said.

Edwin Aiman, a philosophy professor on the North Campus, organized the series along with Pogue and serves as one of the featured speakers. Together they chose the topics, found presenters, booked rooms, advertised, and organized the PowerPoint materials.

Other presentations in the series include Sex Through the Ages and Punishment Through the Ages. Pogue said he believes when the speakers are finished, attendees will reevaluate their existing views of accepted societal standards.

“We will have a better understanding,” he said, “of what questions we should be asking about the social norms we so often perceive as inevitable and unchallengeable.”

Counterculture Through the Ages: 50th Anniversary of 1968! begins at 8:30 a.m. on April 10 in Room 103 of the Grant Fine Arts Center (N1) on the North Campus.
