New Issue: Contention - The Multidisciplinary Journal of Social Protest (Vol. 6, Issue 1)

Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleague,

The articles in this issue of Contention assess the complicating phenomena of social movements, examining issues of system justification, local community responses to hate, the balancing of online and offline protest, and the role of government and media elites in circumventing the rise of protest movements.
