Summary 內容: 20世紀關鍵年份:美國的反戰及民權運動到達高點,改變了美國;巴黎五月風潮結合了工人運動。2018,我們回顧1968五十週年,比照此刻的眾聲喧嘩,或許能得到歷史景深。
1960年代的美國社會波瀾壯闊,反戰、女權、性解放、黑人民權、學生運動等匯成洶湧澎湃的激進洪流,勢不可擋。50年後怎麼看那激情歲月?
本沙龍是「港大──龍應台文化迴廊」的第一場。

The year 1968 was full of seismic social and political change across the globe. From the burgeoning anti-Vietnam war and civil rights movements in the US, to the protests and revolutions in European countries such as France.
It was one of the most consequential and tumultuous years in the American experience – with opposition to the Vietnam war, the rise of feminism, a new sexual freedom, Black Lives Matter activism, and student movements. It changed the country forever, and the changes live on today.
This is the first salon of the ‘HKU – Lung Yingtai Cultural Concourse’ series.
