Globalizing the student rebellion in the long ’68 – Conference in History of Education

University of Valencia – Spain

October 3, 2018 – October 5, 2018

The university student movements that grew up around the world during 1968 were a significant expression of the wave of new social movements. They were also a genuine manifestation of an emergent social and cultural category: young people in action. The range of experiences of these movements was broad; they were influenced by the cultural features, political systems, Cold War guidelines, socioeconomic conjunctures and various idiosyncrasies within the regions where they developed. Furthermore, within these regions they differed from university to university, depending on the specific academic cultures, municipal traditions and balance of social forces.
