"Why does 1968 matter today? The authors of this volume believe that it is a crucial point of reference for the current developments, especially the 'illiberal turn' both in Europe and America. If we want to understand it, we need to look back into 1968 - the year that founded the cultural and political order of today's world. The book consists of the following four sections: '1968 and Transnationality', '1968 and the Transformation of Meanings', 'Artistic Representations of 1968', and '1968 and the European Contemporaity.' This is followed by an afterword from the significant key-note speaker of the original conference: Irena Grudzinska Gross, herself a Polish '68er', reflects upon the conference and leaves remarks on her fifty years of engagement with what happened in 1968"-- Provided by publisher.
