Burleigh Hendrickson: Mellon-Council for European Studies Dissertation Completion Fellowship

Burleigh Hendrickson received a Mellon-Council for European Studies Dissertation Completion Fellowship for the 2013-2014 academic year for his dissertation: “Imperial Fragments and Transnational Activism: 1968(s) in Tunisia, France, and Senegal.” Taking the French empire as one transnational unit of analysis, Hendrickson’s research maps the social movements of 1968 activism in three different cities located in the former French empire; Tunis, Paris, and Dakar. His project focuses on how the university, an imperial fragment, is transformed over the course of 1968 into a postcolonial battleground between the youth and the state. By placing France’s May 1968 in a global comparison with other 1968s, his project attempts to “provincialize Europe” through a comparative and transnational analysis of the former French empire.
