With Phil Cohen.
Phil Cohen considers what the political legacy of 1960s counterculture reveals about the process of commemoration and the notion of historical legacy and its role in the 'dialectic of generations'. How far can the archive serve as a platform for dialogue and debate between different generations of activists in a culture that fetishises the evanescent present, practices a profound amnesia about its past, and forecloses the sociological imagination of an alternative future? Can the Left establish its own autonomous model of commemoration?
