We are soliciting proposals on any topic related to the festival itself, its performers, or its longterm impact, including the politics, aesthetics, and religious/philosophical aspects of ’60s counterculture; the role of artistic expression as a means of protest during the movement; and the sociological, anthropological, and/or psychological aspects of the era.
