Social movement, activist and militant research workshop

The teaching on this course draws on two things: university-based research and social movement practice. It's particularly nice when these two things come together, as they do in what has variously been called activist research, movement-relevant research, engaged research and so on.

Some of the people doing participant action research on social movements at PhD level in NUIM Sociology are hosting a joint workshop with the Political Ethnography research group from Nottingham's Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice from June 18th - 20th, which will focus both on sharing particular skills and on some of the results of this kind of research.

There's an invitation to present here as well as details of how to book etc. A full programme will be published there once all the proposals for presentations have come in (deadline 24th May).
