Uprising 1/13: Revolution

"Uprising 13/13" will explore thirteen different forms or modalities of uprising, including insurgencies, revolts, hacktivism, disobedience, liberation, sedition, and more. Each session will focus on one form of uprising in relation to historical events, from modern revolutionary movements to the Arab Spring and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Discussants will address the questions on the basis of a range of archival and theoretical sources, and other media. Discussions will be led by moderators Bernard Harcourt and Jesús Rodriguez-Velasco with invited guest scholars. 

The September 14 session will examine the historical concept of "revolution" and explore the political consequences of conceptualizing revolution in different ways. How do conceptions of revolution relate to theories of history?

Uprising 13/13 is organized by Bernard Harcourt and Jesús Rodriguez-Velasco. Uprising 13/13 is sponsored by the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Theory and the Society of Fellows.
