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.

The workshop will take place in Jerusalem on May 25-26, 2014. Participants will be invited to a May 27, 2014, conference co-organized by civil society actors in Israel.
To apply, submit an abstract of up to 500 words by February 1, 2014. Invited participants will be asked to submit their draft papers by April 1, 2014. Selected papers presented at the conference will be published in the Journal of Levantine Studies following a standard peer-review procedure.
For inquiries and to submit your abstract, contact Nathalie Alyon: nathaliea@vanleer.org.il
Workshop committee: Dr. Haim Yacobi, Dr. Anat Lapidot-Firilla, Nathalie Alyon.

Deadline for abstracts 1 February 2014. Information: http://vanleer.org.il/en/content/call-participationreclaiming-city-square-urban-protests-mediterranean
