Alternative Futures and Popular Protest

Call for Papers

AFPP is an international, cross-disciplinary conference on social movements, protest and cognate topics. It has drawn participants from over 60 countries, whether based in departments of sociology, politics, cultural studies, psychology, economics, history, geography or elsewhere. Discussions are marked by a long-established spirit of collegial and comradely participation, making for a friendly meeting ground between academia and activism.

We have decided the conference this year will be held online. While we are disappointed at the prospect of not eating, drinking and talking together in person, we very much want to welcome you to the next best thing, a virtual meeting. This format, excitingly, means that we can waive the usual conference fee that would ordinarily cover our meals and room hire, which we hope will allow us to enjoy the most inclusive and diverse AFPP to date.

We invite offers of papers relevant to the broad conference theme.  Papers might address such matters as:

  • contemporary or historical movements and protests from any global region
  • theories of social movements, labour movements and revolution
  • utopias, experiments in alternative living and everyday politics
  • ideologies, imaginaries and strategies of collective action
  • opposition to discrimination and confrontations with capitalism, patriarchy or coloniality

To offer a paper, please send a title, abstract (max 300 words) and 4-6 keywords to the organisers at afpp@manchester.ac.uk including ‘ABSTRACT SUBMISSION’ in the email subject field.

If your abstract is accepted we will also ask you to supply a written paper in advance of the conference, which will be distributed to all participants in advance. Ideally, this would take the form of a fully-referenced working paper, of 6-8,000 words in length in MS Word .docx, Adobe .pdf or compatible format. However, some speakers have submitted different kinds of documents in the past (e.g. extended notes; powerpoint slideshows and so on). We are open to the submission of such documents instead of a working paper as long as they successfully communicate the main argument and evidence base for your paper to a scholarly audience and without the need for specialist software.

Deadlines
  • Receipt of abstracts: Monday 15th March 2021. We aim to respond by the week beginning 3rd May
  • Conference registration: Monday 17th May 2021. Note: there will be no registration fee to pay but we need firm confirmation of attendance by this date in order to create a programme.
  • Receipt of full papers: Friday 28th May 2021

These are final dates. The earlier we receive abstracts, and actual papers, the better.
