It was 50 years ago that massive student and worker protests brought France to a standstill. The events of May ‘68 and their cultural, political and social consequences remain major and controversial topics in France.

In partnership with Northeastern University and Harvard University, the French Library / Alliance Française of Boston and Cambridge presents “May ‘68 Revisited: The Occupy Movement that Paralyzed France.” This months-long series of exhibitions, discussions, debates, film screenings, readings and other activities presents the viewpoints of authors, photographers, journalists, artists, academics, politicians and others to help you discover, appreciate and understand the impact of the May '68 uprisings.

The series is expected to run from February to May 2018. Check back for updates to the event schedule.
