During May ’68 the political Zeitgeist was distinctly left-wing, with Maoists, Trotskyists, and anarchists vying among French students for intellectual and political leadership; little discussed at the time was the fact that many of these left-wing students were assimilated Jews. Join Graduate Center Professor Richard Wolin as he explores French-Jewish identity during this turbulent time. Richard Wolin is a distinguished Professor of History, Comparative Literature, and Political Science at the Graduate Center, CUNY. His books include Heidegger’s Children and The Seduction of Unreason.
