New Perspectives on Cultural Transformations

The conference "Losing Social Control: New Perspectives on Cultural Transformations between 1965 and 1985" took place at the MPIfG from June 30 to July 1. It focused on a period that is increasingly being seen by historians as key in the twentieth century. Presentations addressed the dynamics from feelings of a loss of control over the social and of attempts to regain it especially in reference to developments from around 1968. The discussions confirmed the benefits of such an approach, also from a comparative perspective. The conference was jointly organized by Martin Geyer (University of Munich) and Ariane Leendertz.
