Welcome to the site for the project ‘1968 in reviews’.
Led by Dr Emma Wagstaff from the University of Birmingham and supported by the British Academy / Leverhulme Trust, this project will investigate the role of literary and cultural reviews in the protests and political unrest of the late 1960s. Covering multiple geographical areas and languages, ‘1968 in reviews’ will run until 2019. There will be two events:
A symposium on 23 April 2018 at the University of Birmingham, UK
An exhibition of photographs and extracts from reviews in Spring 2019.
