Reframing '68 and the Sixties - Panel Discussion

Thursday, 27 September 2018, 5:30 – 7:30pm

Reframing '68 and the Sixties - Panel Discussion

On the 50th anniversary, this panel discussion will bring together leading scholars to reinterpret the significance of the events of 1968. How should we understand ’68 and the Sixties? How should we reframe our understanding of ’68 in 2018? Three leading scholars in the field will address these questions and shed light on what cutting-edge research has added to our understanding of the year of 'global revolt'. Panellists include:

Gerd-Rainer Horn (Sciences- Po). Author of The Spirit of '68: Rebellion in Western Europe and North America, 1956-1976 (2007); The Spirit of Vatican II: Western European Left Catholicism in the Long Sixties, 1959-1980, (2015)

Maud Bracke (University of Glasgow). Author of Which Socialism? Whose Detente? West European Communism and the Czechoslovak Crisis of 1968 (2007); Women and the Re-Invention of the Political: Feminism in Italy (1968-1983) (2014)

Nick Hewlett (University of Warwick). Author of Democracy in Modern France (2007); Blood and Progress: Violence in pursuit of emancipation (2016)

This event is supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub under the Making Ireland and Identities in Transformation research themes, the Embassy of France in Dublin, and the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (TCD).
