  • Theory, Action and Impact of Social Protest:

    An Interdisciplinary Conference

    University of Kent - Canterbury, UK

    October 13-14th, 2012

    Conference Program

  • About the Conference

    The TAISP conference hopes to engage participants in discussions of social protest by integrating works from various academic disciplines. The goal of the conference is to promote interdisciplinary integration and cooperation and to broaden the scope of academic work in the fields of social movements and protest. We hope to bring together scholars from disparate disciplines to a forum in which they can draw from new as well as existing research in other fields. Our long term goal is to develop a framework for research on social protest which can stretch beyond the prescribed boundaries of our individual disciplines and we hope the conference can help to achieve this goal. Based on these goals, panels have been selected to be as diverse in disciplines as possible while attempting to maintain a common thread through each of the panels.
