Watch this space for news on an upcoming major conference
Social Movements Since ’68:
Germany, Europe, and Beyond
November 8-9, 2018, Location TBD

2018 marks the fiftieth anniversary of 1968, a high-water mark of postwar social activism in Europe. But that high point did not last long; instead, 1968 was quickly cast as the swansong of traditional social movement mobilization. This conference examines the remarkable efflorescence of grassroots politics and direct democratic action after ’68, reconsidering interpretations of political organization and leadership; the role of the global and the local; and the new forms and subjects of political action, topics of especial importance in present times.
“We are the Terrorists, and We Greet the Tourists”
Welcome to the Center For European Studies at Rutgers
Welcome to the Center for European Studies! We have big plans brewing, especially concerning the question, in these tumultuous times, of what is Europe; the theme of forms of democracy and political participation; and the issues of nationalisms, internationalism, and post-nation. We are developing events geared especially to those who are—and are thinking about being!--European Studies majors and minors. We are excited about our move to the new Academic Building, and look forward to the increased interaction that offers with other centers and programs. We look forward to your participation—and ideas! Come join us!
