CafeLitt 116: May 1968: A Debate

Thu 16 Apr 2009, 19:00, by CafeLitt, at Concordia - LS Building: 2015 Rue Drummond, Montreal, QC (Map)
CafeLitt sessions are famous for the debates that follows the main talk. Some sessions we have no time to have a discussion. Last week Shahdad Heydari had a great presentation on May 1968: Reforms, Revolt or Revolution. Many of the participants ask for another session to debate the influences and the roots of this movement. This session we will have a discussion on this subject. We will give a short summary of previous session. Then Dr. Ata Hoodashtian will talk about the social impact of MAY 68, and the Philosophical and Intellectual challenges of that period and also the influence of the ideas of MAY 68 in Iran.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
