This talk is the opening talk of the CoMMonS Book Talk Series

The CoMMonS Book Talks Series is convened by Nicole Doerr (University of Copenhagen) and Alice Mattoni (University of Bologna). It presents groundbreaking books published on social movements, collective actions, and critical thinking about contentious politics. During book talks, authors will engage into a conversation with a small panel of discussants, including academics, activists, and practitioners working in the civil society sector. 

The CoMMonS Book Talks Series aims at supporting the creation of constructive debates on the most urgent social, political, and economic problems of our times. It is developing a shared knowledge of how people respond to ongoing dynamics of change, from the grassroots, across the world. 

The CoMMonS Book Talks Series is a collaborative transnational endeavor jointly organized by the Copenhagen Centre for Political Mobilisation and Social Movement Studies, in Denmark, and the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Bologna, in Italy. Each book talk lasts about 1 hour and it is online, free, and open to everyone.
