Resistance Studies and Nonviolent Activism Announcement List

The Resistance Studies Initiative hosts an announcement list on Resistance Studies and Nonviolent Activism. We aim to help faculty, students and community members share information related to those topics. We have divided the list into two groups: one for announcements relevant for the US Northeast only and one for all of US/Canada. Yet another list exists for those interested in international events and information with the Resistance Studies Network (scroll down for the international announcement list).

The scope of issues relevant to the Resistance Studies and Nonviolent Activism list is intentionally broad, to include different disciplinary perspectives, levels of analysis and areas of application. The list serves as a forum for posting information about:

  • undergraduate and graduate courses
  • speakers and events
  • conferences and calls for journal papers
  • calls for demonstrations and protests
  • informational resources (articles, books, websites, films, etc.)
  • research opportunities, scholarships or fellowships
  • jobs, contracts, consulting opportunities

We hope you will use this list to share information relevant to resistance studies and nonviolent action. We also hope that you will tell other faculty, students, community members, etc. who you think might be interested about this announcement list and encourage them to subscribe.

Please note that this is an announcement list, not a discussion list. The listserv will be moderated to ensure that postings are relevant and received in ‘digest’ form (i.e. grouped into one e-mail message or less per day) so your inbox is not overloaded.
