50 YEARS AFTER MAY 1968

A TIME OF CHANGES.
A CHANGE IN TIME

The Universidad Francisco de Vitoria is hosting an international, interdisciplinary congress to mark the 50th anniversary of May 1968 and the so-called sexual revolution. This occasion will explore the background and causes of these historic events, as well as their impact and implications for people across the social spectrum.

The Congress will draw distinguished speakers and attendees from all over the world. It will adopt a multidisciplinary approach (incorporating such diverse strands as science, anthropology, ethics, bioethics, law, sociology, education, psychology, art, politics and theology, among others) to tackle fundamental subjects such as human dignity and love, sexual corporeality, and emotional and sexual education. It will be an opportunity to delve deeply into these issues and to dialogue with people and research groups from a variety of countries and fields.

In addition, the event seeks to prompt a wide-ranging, comprehensive, interdisciplinary discussion on sexual identity and gender, their anthropological foundations and their consequences on a practical level. The aim is to inform and guide the worlds of culture, teaching, education, law and communication with respect to these pivotal matters.

After the Congress, papers and other materials presented will be published in print and digital formats.

The Congress is aimed at the academic world, as well as anyone else interested in the subject matter, whether they hail from the cultural or educational spheres or public or private institutions.

The objectives of the Congress are to:

  • Delve deeply into the historical, ideological and cultural backdrop against which the sexual revolution unfolded.
  • Analyse its impact on people and society at large.
  • Offer a comprehensive anthropological overview of the beauty of human sexuality and man- and womankind's mission in the world.
  • Put forward initiatives and courses of action to support people's development through more fulfilling family and social relationships
