In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love in San Francisco, California, Northwestern University’s Center for Civic Engagement and the California Historical Society are hosting a three-day, interdisciplinary academic conference celebrating and reexamining the Summer of Love and its associated events, contexts and implications.
The conference will take place from July 27-29, 2017 at Northwestern University’s new conference and networking center, located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, the city that was ground zero of the Summer of Love and the home of the Haight–Ashbury, where so much of that era’s celebrated history unfolded. Top scholars from around the country will present on topics ranging from media, music and art, to community, politics and social change.
Registration is now open until July 1, 2017. Visit our website to learn more about the schedule for the three days, conference location, hotel and travel information.
