Il Sessantotto in Slovenia
MetadataShow full item record
In post-war Slovenia, student activism came to the fore, with growing intensity, in three separate phases, 1964, 1968 and 1970-1971, culminating in the occupation of the Faculty of Philosophy, Ljubljana University during May-June 1971. Although triggered by specific grievances concerning the student’s position within the academic framework and in society as a whole, a critical attitude toward the functioning of the modern socialist society as such was clearly present. After the occupation activism quickly lost its momentum and its fate was sealed by juridical measures taken against single issues of the student’s periodical Tribuna.
