This colloquium, based on the spoken experiences of a particular group: aims to explore the legacy of May 68, on research tools, historical renewing, and knowledge transmitting schemes. By analyzing the content of these testimonies, either recorded biographies or, for some, filmed, we hope to understand the retrospective discourses made by “Intellectuals” about this series of events and their impact on reputedly decisive breaks.
We will explore in depth the phenomenons of socialization, on both individual and collective levels, how the social imaginaries cling to certain figures or generational groups, the convergences between historian and political interpretations, the changes instilled in the universities and higher education, the social codes that define perception and appropriation of social sciences in the seventies.
