“Revisiting 1968 & the Global Sixties”

As the fiftieth anniversary of 1968 approaches, this series of conferences will reassess the global causes, themes, forms, and legacies of that tumultuous period. While existing scholarship continues to largely concentrate on the U.S. and Western Europe, our initiative will focus on Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

Topics range from the economy, decolonization, and higher education to forms of protest, transnational relations, and the politics of memory.

March 13-15, 2016: NYU Shanghai

December (TBD): NYU New York

Co-convened by Jian Chen, Joanna Waley-Cohen (NYUSH), Mary Nolan, Marilyn Young (NYUNY), Masha Kirasirova, Martin Klimke (NYUAD)
