Dr. Rhodes Will Present: Growing Up in a Land Called Honalee

Dr. Rhodes Will Present: Growing Up in a Land Called Honalee

Dr. Joel Rhodes of SEMO University presents: Growing Up in a Land Called Honalee

Bloomfield, Missouri - The Stars & Stripes Museum will host Dr. Joel Rhodes of Southeast Missouri State University on Monday, July 24th at 6:00 p.m. at their monthly Stoddard County Historical Society meeting.

This study examines how the multiple social, cultural, and political changes between John Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961 and the end of American involvement in Vietnam in 1973 manifested themselves in the lives of preadolescent American children.

Because the preadolescent years are, according to the child development researchers, the most formative, Joel P. Rhodes focuses on the cohort born between 1956 and 1970 who have never been quantitatively defined as a generation, but whose preadolescent world was nonetheless quite distinct from that of the “baby boomers.” Rhodes examines how this group understood the historical forces of the 1960s as children, and how they made meaning of these forces based on their developmental age. He is concerned not only with the immediate imprint of the 1960s on their young lives, but with how their perspective on the era influenced them as adults.
