The Author(s) 2018 Reprints and permissions: sagepub.com/journalsPermissions.nav 1968 Movements DOI: 10.1177/0196859918780816 journals.sagepub.com/home/jci and Activism As 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the 1968 social movements, the editors of the Journal of Communication Inquiry invited a few scholars to share their thoughts on the movements of 1968 with an eye to the present. The movements of 1968 comprised an escalation of social conﬂicts in different parts of the world that were principally characterized by popular rebellions against bureaucratic and military regimes. The origins of the 1968 protests and activism were led by anti- colonialist, black liberationist, anti-psychiatry, feminist, anti-war, student democracy, and environmental movements. After ﬁve decades, there seems to be a resurgence of—or a renewed public debate on—some of these movements. Therefore, in this special section titled “1968 Movements and Activism,” four scholars critically reﬂect on one or more of these movements with the follow- ing questions: � What particularly interesting roles did intellectuals play in the movements of 1968? How was this role effective or an interesting failure? � What does the intervention of intellectuals in the movements of 1968 have to teach us about how
