Abstract [en]

This text explores the Critical Seminars organized atSwedish universities in the years around 1968, that isto say seminars that were self-organized by left-wingstudents outside of the regular curriculum. For manystudent radicals this was where the real universityformation took place, and these seminars functionedas an important arena for reception of internationalMarxist and structuralist theory. There is surprisinglylittle research on this type of seminars, in Sweden aswell as internationally, even though this type of everydaybasic activities probably had greater lastingeffect in the academic landscape than the outbursts ofuniversity occupations and demonstrations morecommonly associated with “1968”. We highlight 106groups that were established at the universities duringthe period 1967–1974. Most groups were formedaround institutions in social sciences and the humanitiesand were established in the years 1968 and 1969.In the final part of the text we offer a more concreteinsight into these activities by comparing the criticalstudy activities in different departments of ComparativeLiterature.
