The Interdisciplinary Conference “Oppositional Energies: Social justice, Protest and Oppositional Politics” will be carried on the 26 of May 2016.
This one-day conference explores the local and global landscape of social justice movements, grassroots activism and oppositional politics. With London at its heart, but not confined geographically in scope and subject matter, ‘Oppositional Energies’ seeks to draw together the work of academics, activists and artists who are researching, documenting and living various responses to inequality, oppression and injustice in all its forms.
Bringing together these voices, the conference aims to explore the political and social frameworks, origins, impact and struggles of collective movements that address areas such as: social welfare and protection, anti-austerity, gender, race and class inequalities, environmentalism, LGBTI rights, reparations, workers’ rights, social policy, education, human rights and migration.
The deadline to submit proposals is on 14 of March 2016.
