John McMillian on Smoking Typewriters: The Ideas and Images of the Sixties Underground Press
 
Drawing from over a decade of research, McMillian will discuss how underground newspapers contributed to the growth, organization, and the decline of the late-1960s American new left; he will also discuss the legacy of the underground press, and its implications for alternative journalism today.

John McMillian is an associate professor of history at Georgia State University, in Atlanta. His most recent book, Beatles Vs Stones, has been translated into eight languages. Currently, he is on a Provost’s Fellowship to support his next book, which will be on crime, policing, and the crime debate in New York City since the 1960s.

Presented by Parsons School of Design.
