CfP: SWANA from below: living, enduring, and remembering its revolutions

Call for papers, deadline 31 May 2022

November 30 - December 2, 2022 —Scuola Normale Superiore, Florence, Italy

The Faculty of Political and Social Sciences at Scuola Normale Superiore in Florence, Italy, invites scholars and early-career researchers to submit abstracts for the conference “SWANA from Below: living, enduring, and remembering its revolutions”. Moving attention from macro level transformations and focusing instead on “politics more below”, this conference seeks to interrogate these revolutions and uprisings from the perspective of their makers. It aims to look closely at how revolutionary dynamics unfold at the micro-level and in their everyday lives, analyzing the trajectories of politicization of activists and participants and the ways in which these revolutionary uprisings affected their lives.

The conference will feature three workshops designed and moderated in cooperation with the Marc Bloch Zentrum at Humboldt University in Berlin and the DRafting and Enacting the Revolutions in the Arab Mediterranean Project (DREAM) and Center for Social Movements Studies (COSMOS) at the Scuola Normale Superiore. More information about the workshops can be found here.
