The Trinity Long Room Hub is commemorating the 50th anniversary of 1968 with two events: the screening of ‘Rocky Road to Dublin’ and a panel discussion to reinterpret the significance of the events of 1968.


We are happy to support the events ‘Reframing ’68 and the Sixties’, organised as part of a series of events sponsored by the Trinity Long Room Hub commemorating the 50th anniversary of 1968.

Wednesday 26th September: Screening of Rocky Road to Dublin

On Wednesday 26th September, screening of the movie Rocky Road to Dublin, the last film shown at the Cannes Festival in 1968 before it was interrupted by protests. Directed by Irish-born journalist Peter Lennon and filmed by French cinematographer, Raoul Cotard, it examines the contemporary state of the Republic of Ireland.

This will be preceded by the documentary Making of the Rocky Road to Dublin, and followed by a Q & A with Dr Carole Holohan (Department of History, TCD) and Dr Rosie Lavan (School of English, TCD).

Thursday 27th September: Reframing ’68 and the Sixties - Panel Discussion

On the 50th anniversary, this panel discussion will bring together leading scholars to reinterpret the significance of the events of 1968. How should we understand ’68 and the Sixties? How should we reframe our understanding of ’68 in 2018? Three leading scholars in the field will address these questions and shed light on what cutting-edge research has added to our understanding of the year of ’global revolt’. Panelists include:

  • Gerd-Rainer Horn (Sciences- Po)
  • Maud Bracke (University of Glasgow)
  • Nick Hewlett (University of Warwick)
    Event is supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub under the Making Ireland and Identities in Transformation research themes, and the Embassy of France in Ireland.
