By Sarah E Gilmore, on 25 July 2019

UCL has trial access to Popular Culture in Britain and America, 1950-1975: Rock and Roll, Counterculture, Peace and Protest until 23rd September 2019. To access off-site please use Desktop@UCL Anywhere. Please note that PDF download options are not available during the trial.

From the austerity of the 1950s to the excess of the 1970s, this resource covers the period through a wealth of printed and manuscript sources, visual material, ephemera and video clips.

The period from 1950 to 1975 witnessed dramatic changes in society. There was the onset of Rock & Roll; the introduction of computers and credit cards; the boom of radio and television; and campaigns for black power, civil rights and women’s liberation. All around the world there were challenges to authority. By focusing on substantial collections of original archival material this digital resource provides primary sources to examine these issues in detail.
