need help from beats

Posted to WritersAndGenres

I am doing a research project for my sociaty class on the Beatnic subculture. I am finding it very difficult to accumulate the information needed. If anyone has any information I could use I would be pleased if you shared it.

I am looking for information in the following areas:
*Values, norms, symbols, material culture
*where/when did the movement take place
*have the values/belifes of beatnic's changed over the years?
*Influential names in the subculture, etc.

If anyone could help me out here it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
