Overview of the course: This course aims to provide students with a critical reading of the main debates within the Social Movement field. This should serve as both a theoretical grounding and a field map, with the intention of highlighting exciting areas for further research. Looking across-geographical areas and historical periods, the various sessions will discuss course readings as well as critical background, concepts, theories, and ideas that complement the readings referring to relevant studies in contentious politics. The course will serve as a guide for further independent study.

 

Course format: The course is articulated into eight seminars according to the timetable provided below. Every session will be primary organized as a collective discussion rather than a lecture. For each of the meetings, students are required to adopt a pro-active stance based on the reading of all the articles/chapters in the reading list. All students must do the readings and active participation in the seminar is compulsory.
