PROTESTS AS EVENTS / EVENTS AS PROTESTS

The International Centre for Research in Events, Tourism and Hospitality (ICRETH) at LeedsMetropolitanUniversity is pleased to announce the following forthcoming symposium:

Protests as Events / Events as Protests: A one day symposium for academics and activists

12th June 2013, Leeds, UK

 

Call for Participation

We take as our starting point Paul Chatterton’s (2006: p.260) argument that: “acknowledging that protest encounters are emotionally laden, relational, hybrid, corporeal and contingent, possibilities open up for breaking the silences that divide us and overcoming ontological divisions such as activist and non-activist.”

This symposium aims to involve conversations between activists and non-activists, as well as academics as activists in order to explore the complex construction of protests as events / events as protests. We propose an innovative coming together of activists and academics to build bridges, initiate debate and develop future research agendas.

The conceptualisation of protests as events and vice versa involves consideration of the temporalities of protests as well as the mobilities that are enacted to bring together an assemblage that may be on the move or fixed at a still point.

Protests as Events/ Events as Protests was inspired by the workshop held at the University of Leicester in June 2012 entitled (Re)thinking Protest Camps: governance, spatiality, affect and media.

 

This call thus seeks papers that focus on one or more of the following topics:

·         Conceptualisations of protests as events          

·         The academic/activist interface

·         Timings and rhythms of protests

·         Discursive constructions of protests

·         Protest and political tourism

·         Mobile assemblages and protests

·         Embodiments of protest events

·         Sustaining protests in the face of cultural changes

·         Protests and sports events

·         Critical hospitality and protests

·         Governance and the governmentalities of protest events

 

We are now seeking proposals for papers for this symposium. Abstracts should be emailed to d.carl@leedsmet.ac.uk and be no more than 300 words. The call is now open and abstracts must be received by 10th March 2013 the very latest.

 

Planned outputs:

It is envisaged that symposium outputs will include a special issue of a journal and an edited book based upon the papers presented.

As well as academic papers we are looking to work with activist groups to integrate, into the symposium programme, a series of activist led workshops; the aim of which will be to produce an eBook based on workshop materials.

 

Conveners:

The symposium conveners are: Dr Ian Lamond; Professor Karl Spracklen and Professor Kevin Hannam.
