BA Small Grant Success

Bice Maiguashca in Politics together with Jonathan Dean (Leeds) has been awarded a BA small grant titled “Gendering Protest - A Gender Analysis of Contemporary Radical Activism in the UK”

About the project

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement (among others), radical protest has recently taken on a renewed visibility both in the UK and elsewhere.   The aim of this pilot project is to examine, through a series of qualitative interviews with activists, the gender dynamics of these protest movements.   More specifically, it will focus on UK-based movements that explicitly identify with a left agenda and claim to advance the cause of progressive politics (such as the Occupy, anti-cuts and trade-union movements).
