Revolution and Protest               

Yesterday and Tomorrow

 

Special Session at Left Forum (April 17-19),                           

Pace University (across from City Hall), New York City

 

Panel discussion flowing from the newly-published eight-volume International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest (Wiley-Blackwell):

 

Walden Bello

Kunal Chattopadhyay

Paul Le Blanc

Immanuel Ness

Frances Fox Piven

 

Exploring historical experience and patterns of relevance for left scholars and activists at the present political juncture, the discussion will survey:

 

*The purpose of the encyclopedia — as a tool for scholars and activists today and tomorrow

*Globalization and international revolution — historically and today

*Revolutionary traditions as resources for social change

*New (and not-so-new) realities of our time

*How progressive social change is brought about — lessons and challenges for today
