Alternative Futures & Popular Protest

AFPP2021 logoWe’re delighted to announce that the 25th edition of Alternative Futures and Popular Protest will be held 7-9th June 2021.

AFPP is an international, cross-disciplinary conference on social movements, protest and cognate topics. It has drawn participants from over 60 countries, whether based in departments of sociology, politics, cultural studies, psychology, economics, history, geography or elsewhere. Discussions are marked by a long-established spirit of collegial and comradely participation, making for a friendly meeting ground between academia and activism.

We have decided the conference this year will be held online. While we are disappointed at the prospect of not eating, drinking and talking together in person, we very much want to welcome you to the next best thing, a virtual meeting. This format, excitingly, means that we can waive the usual conference fee that would ordinarily cover our meals and room hire, which we hope will allow us to enjoy the most inclusive and diverse AFPP to date.

For details on how to submit an abstract (deadline 15th March), please see the full call for papers.
