The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair was a massive exposition with hundreds of exhibits spread out over Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York. The optimism of the day was expressed in its slogan “Peace Through Understanding.” The Fair is remembered for its dazzling architecture, technical innovations, the taste of other cultures, and just plain fun for 52 million visitors. This course will use slides, photos, videos, and selected readings to help recreate the experience.
