Activist organizing and organizing activism: A post-pandemic world in the making
Organizers: Yousra Rahmouni Elidrissi, Ozan Nadir Alakavuklar, Ekaterina Chertkovskaya and Christos Giotitsas
As we find ourselves in the midst of yet another crisis that undermines the ecological, political and economic bases of our lives, alternative forms of organizing are gaining renewed attention, and calls for a critical engagement with them are more urgent than ever. In response to this imperative, this conference explores the current challenges and opportunities opened up by activist forms of organizing. In particular, the conference aims to expand on how these alternatives challenge dominant power relations and prefigure a more democratic, ecologically sustainable, and socially just society in the here and now. Please see attached the conference program covering panel discussions and presentations about arts, activism, alternative organizing, reflections on the pandemic, the theory-practice relationship and academic activism, among others.
