About the lecture

The protest actions that took place on the streets of Paris in May 1968 and subsequently in many other parts of the world, including Tokyo, had a unique impact upon the development of global arts and literature. This lecture examines the forms of trans-cultural, translanguaging and cross-generic arts and literature that arose at the time “on the street”.
