This panel discussion marks the fiftieth anniversary of the 1968 Paris protests and will focus on the ongoing legacy of the 1968 "occupation" of public space in contemporary politics.
** Following this dialogue, join CES for the opening reception for our new exhibit "Occupying Paris: 1968 and the Spaces of Protest." The exhibit maps out the spaces of protest along the Seine, leveraging the spectacular collection of Paris 1968 posters held at Harvard’s Houghton Library as well as photos from Yale University’s Beinecke Library. The reception will be held in the Jacek E. Giedrojć Gallery located at CES. **
