This workshop will take place at Oxford Brookes University (UK) on 18th April 2014. It focuses on how and to what extent ideological divides have been transcended during the recent anti-government demonstrations in different parts of the world such as Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Brazil, Europe, and the USA.
Suggested topics include (but not limited to):
-youth participation in demonstrations
-the role of women in protest movements
-the role of sports as bridging and/or dividing protesters
-nationalist and political Islamist approaches to anti-government demonstrations
-Can we speak of the end or the revival of ideology in the context of protest movements?
-Is there a dialogue between the protest movements in different parts of the world?
PhD candidates and scholars are welcome to present their theoretical and empirical findings on relevant themes.
