Join us for the third Mobilization-SDSU conference on Social Movements and Nonviolent Protest: Resistance and Its Repression, Illiberal Democracies East and West, May 10-11, 2019!

The third conference at San Diego State University is planned as an informal and friendly gathering to present your current work, discuss it with others, network, and, generally, ponder the new directions in which our field is heading. Plenary sessions will emphasize the dark dance between the resistance and the state in illiberal democracies, broadly defined. For open-call sessions, your research on a variety of topics relevant to the social movement and nonviolent resistance fields are invited.

The last year’s conference was a great success: 100 attendees, 92 presenters, 24 paper sessions, and four engaging plenary sessions. We invite all our colleagues studying social movements to our third gathering. Hotel rooms are available in historic Old Town San Diego, an easy trolley ride to the university and a 10-minute ride to San Diego’s scenic harbor, Seaport Village, and Gas Lamp Quarter.
