Irish Society, History and Culture: 100 Years After 2016

Picture description

The conference aims to bring together distinguished scholars and younger researchers from cultural studies, history, literature, linguistics, political science and sociology. In organising this international conference we seek to contribute to the further development of an international network of scholars working on Irish studies and to promote the publication of outputs such as co-edited books or special issues of international journals. For those speakers interested in such a publication, information will be given by the Organizing Committee during the conference.

The conference will feature keynote speeches from internationally-renowned scholars

Edited Volume - 2018

Solidarity Mobilizations in the ‘Refugee Crisis’. Contentious Moves

Donatella della Porta (ed.)
This edited volume ddresses a gap in research on social movements that has disregarded the origins of discontent and overlooks protest as a resource of the powerless; it offers insight into how the movement of refugees across the European Union and elsewhere activates political opportunities; it explores claims to citizenship made by refugees within processes of knowledge production and the mobilization of emotions

Monograph - 2018

I movimenti animalisti in Italia. Strategie, politiche e pratiche di attivismo.

Niccolò Bertuzzi
Il volume si focalizza su coloro che in Italia si occupano di benessere, cura, diritti e liberazione animale all'interno di contesti organizzativi. Grazie alla somministrazione di una survey, interviste agli attivisti e analisi dei frame, emergono una notevole varietà di strategie, pratiche e riferimenti valoriali, la contemporanea presenza di lobby e conflitto, e la natura complessa di un fenomeno al centro dell’attenzione mediatica ma ancora poco studiato in termini sociologici.
