Appel à participation : Workshop “Reclaiming the City Square: Urban Protests in the Mediterranean”, Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, 25-27/05/2014 — LIMITE : 01/02/2014
The aim of this academic workshop is to discuss and conceptualize the recent social protest movements from an interdisciplinary, regional perspective. We will study individual movements within the broader context of social movements in the Mediterranean and examine regional trends and commonalities. The city square—whether Tahrir, Taksim, or Rothschild—provides the main inspiration for this workshop: it is the place where citizens come to voice their concerns and express their demands.
Deadline for abstracts 1 February 2014. Information: http://vanleer.org.il/en/content/call-participationreclaiming-city-square-urban-protests-mediterranean
