Lecture at St John’s College, St Giles’ Oxford OX2 3JP
Dinner at St Cross College, Oxford OX1 3LZ
Lecturer: Professor Robert Gildea
who will lecture on, '1968 Then and Now’
The lecture will ask what 1968 was, who became involved for reasons both political and personal and whether one can speak of a ‘European’ 1968. It will also explore the resonances and legacies of 1968 and its significance today.
Robert Gildea is Professor of Modern History. His publications include Marianne in Chains: In Search of the German Occupation (2002) and Children of the Revolution. The French, 1799-1914 (2008). He directed a five-year project on Europe's 1968, funded by the AHRC and Leverhulme Trust, involving a team of fourteen historians who interviewed nearly 500 former activists. This will be published by OUP in May 2013 as Europe’s 1968. Voices of Revolt. He is currently writing a new history of the French Resistance.
