This week in Professor Putnam lecture we talked about the 1974 impeachment of Richard Nixon. Today at my game my coach made a joke about one of my teammates saying he would not be fit to be president. This reminded me of our talk of Nixons impeachment and the rash decisions he made. Putnam showed us a video on him resigning and giving up his place in office and also told us why Nixon “resigned” instead of being impeached. This intrigued my attention because it was funny that my coach would say my teammate wouldn’t be fit to be president because he would make dumb decisions. The harsh comment reminded me of the harsh comments that Nixon would receive at the time and comments he would receive in the future for the decisions he made.
Professor Putnam this week taught us that feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. Feminism and women s rights was not really fought for untill the 1920’s. Even then in the eye of society woman rights were not as important as the rights of a man. This picture illustrates how woman were strong and ready to fight for what they deserved.
This week in class we are learning about Hippies and when I walked into my suite mates room he has this jacket with vibrant colors that reminds me of the lecture this week on hippies. The word hippie or hipster was a term that originated on college campuses durring the 1960’s and 1970’s. these were people who were involved in a countercultural movement that rejected the mores of mainstream American life.
after a long day at the baseball field i sit in my room with the light on and the tv on and think about the long history of the lightbulb. In class we learned that the lightbulb had a long history of people who tried t invent it but who was actually credited for it. The lightbulb is such a huge influence and is a huge part of everyday society.
