Conference in History of Education

University of Valencia – Spain

Call for Proposals

The university student movements that developed on a global scale during the '68 were a significant expression of the wave of new social movements and a genuine manifestation of an emergent social and cultural category: young people in action. The range of experiences of these movements was broad, depending on the cultural features, political systems, Cold War guidelines, socioeconomic conjunctures and various idiosyncrasies installed in the regions where they developed and, within these, they differed from university to university, depending on academic cultures, municipal traditions and balances of social forces.

The objective of this Symposium is to create a space for reflection and exchange of ideas between researchers from different backgrounds and historiographical currents on young university students in action during the 'long '68’. This expression is intended to emphasize the "expanded" character of the "global moment" representing that year. In '68, from its beginnings, numerous and intense performances of young and students were reserved, some of them especially memorable, like the Paseata dos Cem Mil, , the Spring of Prague, the massacre of Tlatelolco or the May of Paris, soon to became part of the substance of youthful revolutionary mythology, finding echoes of itself in later decades. But the trail of this wave of youthful rebellion can be traced back to the Great Cultural and Proletarian Revolution in the mid-'66, as well into '69, with particularly significant episodes of youth and university activity, such as in Japan or USA, where the Woodstock festival was held, which would quickly become established in youth social imaginary as a benchmark of counter-culture in the 1970s and part of the 1980s.

Special attention will be given - but not only - to the following aspects, always linked to the general theme of the symposium:

  • The international synergies, influences, exchanges and interlacings of university student movements.
  • The political and pedagogical backgrounds of the motivations, claims and aspirations of university youth.
  • The capacity for social mobilization, integration of alternative political actors and negotiation with the Institutions.
  • The philosophical component and the sociological background of "young people in action".
  • Youth cultures and counter-cultures.
  • Representations of student mobilizations in social imaginaries.
  • Revolutionary mythology
  • The educational dimension of university youth in action.
  • The discourses and experiences of social, cultural and political development of the community environments.
  • Impacts and / or traces of long '68.

It is also the purpose of this Symposium to contribute to the current debates on the situation of scientific communication in the area of History of Education. To such questions will be dedicated the II Workshop of Journals of History of Education.
