353 - Section on Collective Behavior and Social Movements Paper Session. Social Movements Across Institutions

Mon, August 18, 8:30 to 10:10am, TBA

Session Submission Type: Paper Session


Social movement theory has been built around contention between movements and states. Yet social movements have challenged many institutions, including corporations, media, law, religious organizations, and universities, as well as cultural codes, norms, and practices. This session examines how our thinking and theorizing must change in order to analyze these challenges. Through concrete empirical analyses, this session explores which theories about the causes, consequences, and strategies of movements are helpful and which need revision, and in which directions.
