Language: French and English
Session Type: Oral
It is just over fifty years since “the Berkeley invention” saw the eruption the Free Speech Movement in 1964 and that student movements rocked the world. “Student Power” was a crucial aspect of the world’s political agenda from Paris to Tokyo via Mexico City and Prague. Today student movements are at the centre of attention again, be in Latin America, North America and Europe, students have rallied for issues ranging from tuition-fee hikes and climate change to gun control.
Universities and scholars worldwide have celebrated and studied their history, a rich heritage of activism that ranges from the Black Universities and the Civil Rights sit-ins to anti-apartheid campaigns in South-Africa; the Tiananmen Square protests in China and the student revolution in Iran; anti-austerity protests such as Los Indignados in Spain and Greece or the Occupy movement in North America and the “Maple Spring” in Canada; and more recently the pro-democracy movements such as Hong Kong’s Umbrella movement. In all these movements, students have been a key element, and sociology has been the discipline most involved with both participation and analysis of these movements.
However, universities have also long been targeted by the far-right movements. Today, these are on the rise through the world. Against student protest culture, a culture of cruelty has been making the most of the academic marketplace and of the ambivalent Internet as a new arena of power, transforming the meaning of student power and free speech that we seek to question anew.
