*********************************************************************************************************************
Full Call For Papers:

Social movements shape the political, social and economic climate not only of the country in which they originated but also in others around the world. From an academic point of view, the study of political mobilization is an area that is subject to, and benefits from, interdisciplinary perspectives.

The aim of this meeting is to explore social movements from a variety of academic lenses and to further develop links between disciplines on the study. The conference will be an opportunity to officially launch the Interdisciplinary Network for Social Protest Research (INSPR).


Themes of the conference include:

- Past and present collective actions
- Social and political theory
- Motivation, mobilization, or outcomes
- Methodology
- Macro- and micro- processes
- Art in and from protest
- Legal or economic implications and considerations
- Other related topics


Submissions

To submit your proposal, please send an email to taispconference@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions of presentations, poster or symposia is February 14th 2014.

Sponsors

The conference is sponsored by the British Psychological Society – Social Psychology Section (http://socpsy.bps.org.uk) and Barry Amiel & Norman Melburn trust(http://www.amielandmelburn.org.uk/).
