From the Ground Up: Reimagining Collective Dissent in the Transnational Age

updated: 
Sunday, December 23, 2012 - 3:25pm
American Studies Association (ASA) 2013, Washington DC

The authors of Transnationalism From Below remind us of the cleft between the theories and practices within the transnational rubric to argue that "the power to resist hegemonic projects, exists latently at all levels of the global system. But to materialize, it must be socially organized, and cannot be taken for granted as inherently embedded in phantom discourses 'from below'." This panel will revisit the issue of collective dissent to explore how notions of solidarity and resistance have been altered, reconfigured, and reimagined in fluid global contexts.
