Conclusion The debate concerning the inadequate manner in which the events have been portrayed over the years is certainly nothing new. Indeed, since – in particular – the twentieth anniversary, many questions have been asked of the historical analyses of May/June 1968. Ambiguity surrounding the portrayal of the events was a prominent feature in both literature and media representations in 1988. 134 He highlights the negative impact of those who have come to represent 1968, particularly during the mediatized commemorations.

De Gaulle’s miraculous speech is analysed as the major turning point. There is recognition of a lack of recul and the need for more time to digest the complete impact of the crisis. Nevertheless, one cannot help but identify an emerging consensus. 78 In the main chronological overview, the étrange révolution is given scant attention and remains very much focused on Paris. However, there then follows a two-page dossier entitled Les Soixantehuitards where the 1988 buzzword ‘Generation’ is very prominent.

However, as the above analysis demonstrates, that surrounding mai 68, despite being characterized by a huge amount of interest bolstered by periodic reassessments and continued relevance, has led to the dominance of a specifically limited portrayal of what occurred, why and its consequences. ) compared to the complete nature of the events that touched every region, every social class and so many of the nation’s most important institutions, the shortcomings are clear. However, the now tradÂ� itional periodic reassessments of the 1968 events offer continual opportunities for the reappraisal of their history.
