Columbia 1968 and the World:
A 40th Anniversary Event
April 24-27, 2008
This spring marks the 40th anniversary of the 1968 student protests at Columbia University. A group of alumni participants, working with faculty and students, has developed a program for a three-day conference to reexamine those events from a wide range of viewpoints and in the context of what was happening in 1968 in the country and the world. The conference will provide a chance for people who lived through that period to reconnect, reconcile, and reflect. And it will engage current students in a discussion about issues of war, race, and the role of the universityissues that are still with us 40 years later.
Speakers include Ti-Grace Atkinson, Paul Auster, Akeel Bilgrami, Lee Bollinger, Ray Brown, Kathleen Cleaver, Lewis Cole, Todd Gitlin, Juan Gonzalez, Mary Gordon, Tom Hayden, Tony Judt, Michael Klare, Manning Marable, Johanna Ocana, Frances Fox Piven, Mark Rudd, Christien Tompkins, Ntozake Shange, Sudhir Vankatesh.
