Global Seventies Initiative

The Annual Global Seventies Initiative is an international collaboration between Boston University, the University of Münster, and Utrecht University that gathers scholars researching the culture and politics of the 1970s from a transnational perspective. Information about previous conferences, including this year’s conference on “Consigning the 1970s to History” held at Utrecht University, can be found below.

The Global Seventies Conference is made possible by generous grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research and the BU Center for the Humanities.
