American Civilization

Good Morning to all,

I need a little help. My American Civilization class this semester is going to deal with protest or counter culture through discourse in America. So, I suppose that we are going to cover a large historical period from the abolitionists to what we call in French, "the altermondialists". I have to pick a subject that I will wirte a paper on. Here's my question: what about SF or Fantasy as a means of protest or as the expression of counter culture?

One of the examples I can think of, would be Farmer and the importance of sex in his books published at a time when sex was more of a taboo.

Obviously, I am limited to American authors.

Thank you in advance for your help and I apologize for those of you who are members (or just watching) several different communities as this message will be posted in many communities.
