Rising Up: Movements for Change
Movements for change take many forms including civil disobedience, sustained armed conflict, coups, protests, and revolutions. This workshop explores the complex and often misunderstood origins, methods, and outcomes of movements around the globe historically and today. Why do revolutions succeed or fail? What transforms a protest into a revolution? What are the legacies of anti-colonial movements and key demands of anti-capitalist movements? What roles have student protests played? A closer examination of historical movements provides lessons and lenses for understanding contemporary contestations.
