Interpreting May '68 

Edited by Chris Reynolds, Nottingham Trent University


As part of its continuing series of issues focused on '68, the current issue of H-France Salon presents excellent essays by Julian Bourg, Boston College, and  Daniel A. Gordon, Edge Hill University.  These two essays respond to a forum entitled "May '68:  New Approaches, New Perspectives" in volume 51, issue 2 of French Historical Studies edited by Donald Reid and Daniel J. Sherman.  The essays extend the discussion and debate found in the original six essays, which SFHS and Duke University Press have kindly made access to the six forum essays freely available through June 2018 (https://read.dukeupress.edu/french-historical-studies).

Le Cas '68
As part of its recognition of the 50th anniversary of May '68, H-France Salon has teamed up with students in Chris Reynolds’ course on May '68 at Nottingham Trent University to produce a historical blog of those dramatic months. These blog entries address many of the key events and people that marked the spring of 1968 and provide both descriptions of various issues and people and links to more detailed information. The blog begins on 22 March and then picks up again on 3 May charting pivotal moments of these seminal events. There will be a total of 12 blog entries which will be published during these months. We encourage you to share these blogs with your students and with anyone interested in learning more about Le Cas '68 in France.
