The Sixties and the Shaping of Global Consciousness


New World Coming – The Sixties and the Shaping of Global Consciousness
An Interdisciplinary Conference at Queen's University

Kingston Ontario
13-16 June, 2007

Scholars in a wide variety of disciplines, from diverse theoretical and geographical backgrounds, have begun a major reassessment of the experience, meaning, and importance of 'The Sixties.' Central to this rethinking has been a recognition of the international nature of Sixties protests, and the global circulation of politics and culture in the post-1945 period. This international and interdisciplinary conference will bring together scholars working on topics as diverse as the New Left, Third World decolonization and liberation movements, the politics of sexand race, and cultural studies, in the hopes of fostering a dialogue onthe interconnected nature, and present day legacy, of the various forms of culture and movements which characterized "The 'Sixties.'

We encourage papers on the following themes:


  • decolonization, anti-imperialism, and international solidarity movements
  • environmental consciousness and politics
  • the New Left, the New Right, and New Social Movements
  • sexual politics and gender relations
  • politics of race and racism
  • student and youth movements
  • media, music and film
  • cultures and counter-cultures

We welcome individual submissions, panels and round-tables. Please send a 300 word abstract and a short (one page) C.V. by the 31st of August, 2006, to:

Global Sixties
Department of History
Queen's University
