“Civil Sphere and Radicalization”

Our conference will transform understanding of radical protest, first by cross-fertilizing existing debates through comparing species of radical protest, and second, by explaining radical protest not only in terms of the perceived inadequacy of existing institutional channels for dissent, but also and crucially, drawing on Jeffrey Alexander’s The Civil Sphere.  This conference has been organized by Eve Hayes de Kalaf, and coordinated by Jeffrey Alexander, Farhad Khosrokhavar, and Trevor Stack.
