October 2011 - May '68 - An Eyewitness Account

Place de la SorbonneIn this month's Paris Insights we interview William Brustein, Vice Provost for Global Strategies and International Affairs and Professor of Sociology at The Ohio State University. He recounts his experience as a student in France during the May '68 uprising.

To write our monthly restaurant review, Le Bon Goût, we dined at La Bonne Franquette, a restaurant on Butte Montmartre that specializes in regional cuisine.

And for our Paris, Past and Present feature, we report on the Odéon Theatre, a playhouse that was occupied by students and militants and transformed into a forum for public debate during the May '68 events.
