Contentious Interactions: Frontiers in Protest Research

Online Workshop


The two-day workshop brings together scholars working on protest dynamics from Europe, the United States and elsewhere. The aim is to take stock of current developments and present ongoing research in three subfields: the dynamics of protest and electoral politics; protest and networks of grassroots mobilization; radicalization in protest on- and offline. Next to individual presentations the workshop features a keynote speech by Theda Skocpol, as well as a concluding roundtable on ‘Contentious Interactions – Frontiers in protest research’. The workshop will take place as a hybrid event. Upon registration, external participants may attend online - via Zoom - individual presentations, the keynote speech, or the roundtable.
