The Politics of Protest

Bridging the Local and Global in Emerging Social Movements

Locating Occupy, SlutWalk, and Other Organizing Efforts

Date: January 26, 2012
Time: 5:00 p.m.
Location: William Doo Auditorium

Discussions from the panel will address the transnational and intersectional politics of emerging activist movements like Occupy and SlutWalk in order to look at the dynamics of local and global protest, especially as they relate to marginalised people within and outside the movements. Speakers will consider the causes and consequences of the increasing globalisation of protest, and its relation to increasingly globalised power.
