"Under the Paving Stones: Protest and Transformations of State Power in Western Europe, 1968-1985"
Luca Provenzano is a doctoral candidate in history. His dissertation, "Under the Paving Stones: Protest and Transformations of State Power in Western Europe, 1968-1985,” describes how, after the seminal protests of 1968, the French and West German governments constructed new styles of protest management involving novel weapons, flexible tactics, and new legal frameworks for ensuring public order. Provenzano will present a chapter from the dissertation about the new public order legislation passed after the events of May and June 1968 in France.
First Thursday Graduate Scholar Talks take place the first Thursday of each month during the academic year. The talks provide young scholars an opportunity to make a generalist presentation on their research to a cross-disciplinary audience ready to listen carefully and ask good questions. EPIC members help give the Ph.D. students a useful learning experience and at the same time learn about something that may be well beyond their own scholarly interests. Complimentary lunch provided. RSVP required.
