The ’68 Years and the "Wind from the West"

The France and the World seminar at the Mahindra Humanities Center welcome Kristin Ross, who will present a re-evaluation of the French and global 60s in the light of contemporary territorial and land-based struggles like the zad (zone-à-défendre, or zone to defend) at Notre-Dame-des-Landes. She will argue that ’68 was a movement that began in the cities whose intelligence and future leads to the earth/Earth. In other words:  "De boue, les damnés de la terre."

Generously co-sponsored by the Departments of History and Romance Languages and Literatures, and the Provostial Fund for the Arts and Humanities.
