Image Lecture presented by Kurt Schock

Associate Professor of Sociology, Anthropology, and the Division of Global Affairs at Rutgers­­–Newark

Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 4:30 PM (Reception to Follow)
Alexander Library, 4th FL Lecture Hall

Kurt Schock is the founding director of the Program on Civil Resistance at Rutgers–Newark. His book Unarmed Insurrections: People Power Movements in Nondemocracies was awarded Best Book of the Year (co-winner) by the Comparative Democratization Section of the American Political Science Association. Schock’s research seeks to understand how civil resistance movements challenge state domination and economic exploitation. Currently, he is researching land reform and land rights movements in the global south by examining how civil resistance is being used to prevent land alienation and promote a more equitable distribution of land and resources.

Civil Resistance and the Struggle for Land is the last of six lectures in the Emergent Opportunities and Threats: The Rutgers Dialogue on Global Issues Lecture Series, a joint initiative between the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers–New Brunswick and the Division of Global Affairs at Rutgers–Newark.  

We hope you will join us for this lecture and the rest of the series!
