       1)  please try to read the three following short pieces (each between one and two thousand words) for some good examples of 68 events in Paris and USA
      a)  1968: Power to Imagination
      b) Interview with Sartre
      c)  Aquarius Rising
      2) please at least dip into Sartre’s ‘Existentialism and Humanism’ and the two De Beauvoir extracts – as I will be concentrating on these (esp Sartre) in the first major part of our lecture
      3) Try to read Julian Bourg’ s extracts – esp the Introduction which provides an excellent and very accessible background to May 68 in Paris. The author will be visiting my second class  (Oct 31) for a conversation about his book; but do dive in now if you can as it is a very useful historical-intellectual contextualising of the philosophies of ’68.
      4) Have a glance at Godard’s movie, ‘Breathless’ (for English subtitles press cc at bottom of screen) which we will be discussing in Part 2 of class, along with some other fun clips of the New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) of French and European cinema in the 60s.
