A Call for Papers
Mobilization’s European office is assisting the sponsorship of a conference on Solidarity’s legacy at Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland, June 4-5, 2020. Solidarity’s nonviolent challenge to Soviet-style communism was mass-based, strategic, and enduring. It was the key link in the chain of events that ended Europe’s post-war division. We call for papers that analyze Solidarity’s historical, cultural, social, theoretical, and spiritual legacies. Accepted papers will be organized according to three themes: Solidarity’s place in the Cold War, its place in the social sciences, and its ideological heritage. Send abstracts and 100-word bio to the coordinator, Krzysztof.Brzechczyn@ipn.gov.pl by March 31.

This list includes the sessions and events sponsored by the Collective Behavior and Social Movements Section at the annual ASA meeting in New York City. It also includes thematic sessions that have a CBSM focus. The CBSM-sponsored events are noted with asterisks. The theme for this year’s conference, “Engaging Social Justice for a Better World,” has much to do with activism, movements, and organizing, so many other sections are offering sessions that may be of interest to CBSM members—there were too many to list here!
