The Departments of Sociology and International Relations are hosting the Democratic Marxism Theory workshop.

Speakers include student activists, community activists and scholar activists. The crisis of contemporary capitalism and its oppressions has engendered various modes and forms of resistance.

Many transnational and local movements have found innovative ways to challenge power, invent new forms of power, disrupt everyday circuits, capture social media presence, win legitimacy and deepen support for their struggles.

An important body of literature has also developed around these new ways of bringing non-violence into mass resistance. This theory workshop will grapple with this cutting edge literature and its theoretical approaches to non-violent mass resistance, while thinking about how we strengthen transformative struggles.
