Images of the Revolutions of 1968

6th International Conference on History and Cinema
  • The research center Film-Història of the Faculty of History and Geography of the University of Barcelona organizes the 6th Conference on History and Cinema addressing the images of the revolutions of 1968.
  • The programme counts on the collaboration of EUROM and the Center for International History Studies and will take place at the University of Barcelona from July 18 to 20, 2018.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of May 68, the 6th International Congress on History and Cinema proposes an approach to such crucial events as the French May, the Prague Spring, the Slaughter in the Plaza of the Three Cultures of Tlatelolco in Mexico City, the murder of Martin Luther King or the emergence and consolidation of new movements and forms of protest and counterculture.

The programme aims to bring together the perspectives and views of researchers from the most diverse fields such as History, Communications, Film, Journalism, Music, Visual Arts, Philosophy, Literature, Photography or Social Sciences, among others, with a special emphasis on the images that documented these events and that, to a large extent, shaped the current world.
