This conference seeks to create a new understanding of 1968, highlighting common themes that emerge by analysing intersections of various academic disciplines and presenting global perspectives of this year, which is mostly viewed as a European phenomenon. We intend to collaborate with scholars from diverse fields, such as History, Theatre Studies and Modern Languages, in order to deepen our comprehension of this key date. Our motive as researchers to organize this conference is to commemorate the anniversary of 1968 as well as to connect with other researchers to identify cultural, social and political implications that have developed in response to events in 1968. This project’s originality lies in its use of a transnational and interdisciplinary lens to view this year’s historic impact, thus providing a new framework to consider the resonance of 1968 and the first fifty years afterwards.

Keynote speakers: Professor Anne Etienne (UCC) and Professor Maud Anne Bracke (University of Glasgow)
