Dear colleagues and friends,

the ECPR just opened the call for paper for the next ECPR Joint Sessions, in Mainz (Germany) from 11 to 16 March 2013. Donatella della Porta and I will direct one of the workshops dealing with the transnational dimension of recent protests occurring in the Arab, European and North-American countries. With a special focus on imageries/practices of democracy and communication/mediation processes. Here it is the workshop abstract (you can find a longer description in the ECPR website):
"The workshop intends to analyze the transnational dimension in the recent wave of global protests like the Arab Spring, the European Indignados, and Occupy Wall Street. Literature on transnational social movements flourished in the last decades, exploring social movement networks that organized counter-summits demonstrations and social forums meetings. Most recent protests across the world had, amongst their target, national governments and policies. But they also maintained a strong transnational stance. Starting from a comparative perspective, the workshop focuses on the transnational mechanisms and processes at work in the Arab Spring, the European Indignados, and Occupy Wall Street by paying particular attention to 1) imageries and practices of democracy and 2) communication and mediation processes."

Please spread the news about the workshop. You can submit paper proposals via the ECPR official website. The deadline for submission is Monday, 5 November 2012.

Kindest regard,

Alice and Donatella
