Osmosis & Transformation: The Beats and Beyond

This week, my lecture will focus on the beats and perhaps a little on the later movement that grew out of the beats, which was known as the hippies.

The article I mentioned, in which the Beat Generation was first “announced”, is here.

The handout, “Belief & Essentials For Modern Prose” by Jack Kerouac, is here.

Allen Ginsberg’s reading of America is available in MP3 here, and the text of the poem is here.

My Powerpoint-compatible slideshow is here… I’ll be adding credits to the sources for the photos soon, but since it was created in a hurry, the credits are left out for this version.
