Cameron University’s Sarah Eppler Janda authors new book focusing on student activism and counterculture in 1960s Oklahoma
By janwilli - 1/24/2018

Cameron University’s Dr. Sarah Eppler Janda, Professor of History, is the author of “Prairie Power: Student Activism, Counterculture, and Backlash in Oklahoma, 1962-1972.” Though most scholarship about 1960s-era student activism and the counterculture focuses on the East and West Coasts, Oklahoma’s college campuses did see significant activism and “dropping out.” In the 232-page volume, recently published by the University of Oklahoma Press, Janda fills a gap in the historical record by connecting the activism of Oklahoma students and the experience of hippies to a state and a national history from which they have been absent.
