As we approach the 50-year anniversary of 1968, a high point of activism and protest around the world, we are interested in reflecting on and engaging with 1968’s legacy of activism as it influences theory and practice. While 1968 is often associated with the May protests in France, this time period saw various protests and radical action occurring at places around the world, including the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia, student movements in Mexico, the Cultural Revolution in China, and anti-war protests and counter-culture movements in the USA. Many of these events still resonate in our contemporary sociopolitical atmospheres.

In the Age of Revolutions, the creation and dissemination of information cultivated and complicated shifts in political ideology, commercial practices, and imperial infrastructure. Questions of access in these networks, of who can create information, who can circulate and commodify it, and on what terms, directly intersects with ongoing explorations of textual transformation in digital studies.
