Memories of May ‘ 68
Cote : REYN
1968 in France has been the focus of much attention for over forty years; while mai 68 is seen as a watershed in the development of French society, a common narrative that portrays it in an increasingly reductive light has become prévalent. As a resuit, the French collective memory has been shaped and cultivated in such a way as to undermine the true magnitude of the ‘events’. Why this should be the case.who benefits from the dominance of this consensus, and to what extent the history of 1968 is retrievable are the questions that underpin Aiemor/es of May ’68: France’s Convenient Consensus. Chris Reynolds is Senior Lecturer in French and European Studies at Nottingham Trent University.
