L’agitation étudiante et lycéenne de l’après-Mai 1968 à 1986. Du cadre national à l’exemple clermontois

Abstract : For a long time, the history of French universities and secondary schools has been restricted to an institutional history, the one of reforms, and university policies. But for many years, new issues have been at the centre of much thinking. Thus, since May 68, historians have been about the people involved in the university and school life, in particular students and secondary school students. Indeed, after the events of May and June 1968, French students and secondary school students have had an increasingly important role on the political and social scene. This evolution is all the more noteworthy in Clermont-Ferrand where young people at university and at school regularly make themselves heard. In fact, there is in the Auvergne regional capital a tradition of student and secondary school student struggle dating back to the events that occurred during the Second World War, when the university of Strasbourg withdrew in Clermont-Ferrand, or when students and secondary school students struggle against the war in Vietnam and in Algeria. From this struggle tradition, a special political and trade-union scene arises in the secondary schools and universities of the city. From the 1960s to the 1980s, secondary school students and students are particularly involved in political and social fights, whether they directly concern school and university or not. They are part of a larger movement that reaches its peak in the 1960s and 1970s. This research work is aimed at questioning the relationships between local and national movement : do Clermont-Ferrand 's secondary school students and students stand out from other French students ? What are the main causes and subjects of mobilization in Clermont-Ferrand from 1968 to 1986 ? Are they the same as other French young people or not ? This work is intended to show the role played by Clermont-Ferrand's secondary school students' and students' movement within a social local and national movement.
