Introduction

Janis Joplin is often considered a feminist icon associated with 1960s counterculture and sexual liberation.

But did the free love revolution actually liberate women, or was it simply an inversion of patriarchal norms?

In this course, cultural musicologist Laura Hamer and women's studies Ph.D. candidate Emily Chambers examine the sexual revolution through the life and career of the rock and roll icon.

Focusing on the tension between self-expression and exploitation, the course critically analyzes women's role in counterculture, as well as counterculture's relation to feminism.
