Programma

Social movements have been affected by transformations in democracy and, at the same time, they have contributed to them. They have not only challenges the dominant liberal model of democracy, but also developed alternative theories and practices oriented towards ideals of participation and deliberation. This seminar will investigate the complex relations between normal and contentious politics, focusing on some new trends, but also some silences in social movement theories. The aim of the seminar is to stimulate participation in debates around recent research and theorization on new areas in social movement studies. By presenting research-in-progress the seminar also aims at linking theoretic and empirical dimensions. Linking theories with empirics, the seminar will host SNS faculty and post-doctoral fellows, in order to introduce a plurality of points of view on both theory and research project ongoing at the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences at SNS.
