The conference’s aim is twofold:
- To demonstrate what happens when unacceptable discourses refuse to remain unacceptable on a global scale and social implications that follow accordingly.
- To analyse 1968’s legacy and how social movements were manifested in different expressions, such as cultural production, policy and ontological understanding. Examples of such expressions were illustrated through theatre, the Civil Rights Act and pro-feminist demonstrations.
Paper proposals that address intend to showcase how social movements associated with 1968 impacted citizens’ lives on a transnational level. As a guide to submissions, we would ask that you consider the following questions:
- How can this year’s impact be considered through a transnational lens?
- Has this global movement been translated into social developments?
- Do different disciplines demonstrate ways social movements can inspire change?
