Description
The global upheaval caused by the protest movements around 1968 revolutionised social structures, overturned cultural conventions, challenged political ideologies, and catalysed civil rights activism by women, gay people and ethnic minorities. Childhood historians stress the importance of this period in altering the authority structures that shaped children’s lives.

This project analyses 1968 as a watershed moment in children’s culture and its related disciplines. It is a new collaboration between researchers and practitioners from Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden and the UK.

By thinking about children’s culture as a site for artistic and intellectual experimentation, at the centre of ideological activity across disciplinary boundaries and national borders, we aim to open up new ways of understanding the ‘68 liberation movements and their legacies. With the fiftieth anniversary of ‘68 approaching, it is important that the children’s perspective is finally brought to the fore of scholarly debate and public commemorations.
