Mai 68

Category: Translation

The translations in this section are of two kinds. Included are twenty pages of published translations from the book by Andrew Feenberg and Jim Freedman, "When Poetry Ruled the Streets" (SUNY Press). In addition, a number of translations prepared in 1968 have been included in manuscript. These are drafts of texts originally intended for the book but dropped because of length. Some of them are introduced with commentaries prepared shortly after the Events. These translations focus primarily on contemporary debates over the role of the middle strata in the Events. The "Critical University" pamphlet represents the reformist program of the Law School students. The originals are indicated in each case and can be consulted on this site.
