Welcome to the website of the research project “Transnational popular culture – Europe in the long 1960s” supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) in Germany and the National Research Fund (FNR) in Luxembourg.



This website serves as a deeper insight into “Popkult60: A closer look at popular culture in Europe over the long decade of the 1960s”. Our interdisciplinary team is composed of researchers from the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH), the Institute for History (IHIST) at the Université du Luxembourg, and the Historisches Institut (Lehrstuhl für europäische Zeitgeschichte and Lehrstuhls für Kultur- und Mediengeschichte of the Universität des Saarlandes and the Bereich Interkulturelle Wirtschaftskommunikation at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena).

Our objective is to analyze European cultural transfers in a transnational perspective in the “long” 1960s. On this website you will find information on the fields of tension that are at the heart of the project as well as the descriptions of the different research fields covered by our researchers. You can also follow the progress of our research by consulting our blog or by contacting us directly.

Enjoy your visit!
