Submission deadline: December 8th, 2016


Reading practices, in many ways, form the basis of our discipline. However, we often take them for granted, or remain unreflective about their consequences. Whether it is our close reading methodology or more broadly the perspective we adopt, ways of reading require renewed attention and scrutiny.

Inciting Revolutionary Change

Micah White, one of Occupy Wall Street's founding members, suggests via his 2016 book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution:

"Is protest broken? Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance."
