The 1960s are often remembered as an era of progressive global liberation when a myriad of social movements gained momentum, when armed revolutionaries toppled governments, and when young people braved fierce opposition in their attempts to push the world towards freedom and equality. We want to draw back this nostalgic curtain to re-examine this crucial decade. Who were the global social actors of the long 1960s? How did they re-imagine society and what actions did they take to either provoke—or resist—change? What were some of the (unexpected) alliances among individuals and groups that emerged in the process? What kinds of conflicts existed, arose, were resolved, or persisted? And how can we trace key points of reference between individuals and groups as they challenged (or upheld) political structures, gender systems, and models of sexual desire?

These are interrelated yet distinct fields: they range from cultural systems of meaning to economic-productive relations; from the intimate personal sphere to the legal and institutional dimension in the broad sense.

The Sophie Project – A Digital Library of Works by German-Speaking Women (Web)
The student research project aims to incorporate mentored research into undergraduate education (Staff and student researchers). In doing so, students acquire proficiency in library research, document collection, editing, analytical writing as well as expanding their subject knowledge. In doing this, the Sophie Digital Library preserves a large number of early German-language creative works which might otherwise be lost, making them easily available from a single source, at no cost to users.
- The Women’s Movement Collection; dedicated to Waltraud Maierhofer (Web)
- The Biography and Memories Collection; ded. to Ruth-Ellen Joeres (Web)
- The Early (Pre-1750) Collection; ded. to Albrecht Classen (Web)
