Exhibition Catalog: Walkout: A Brief History of Student Organizing

Based on Interference Archive’s online exhibition of the same name, Walkout: A Brief History of Student Organizing focuses on how student organizing emerged in the post-World War II era as the avenue through which postwar generations could participate in public dialogue and critique existing systems, becoming voices of change. Organized by decade, materials in this publication focus on student organizing in the United States but make reference a the broader global context of student protests in France, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, and Canada.

The materials in this publication reflect the holdings of Interference Archive, as well as material on loan from the private collection of Dennis O’Neil. They are in no way encyclopedic in scope but are instead a sampling of the textual and visual culture of student organizing.
