Occupy

and Jacqueline Kennelly

Hosted by Neil Wilson
"This richly theorised, fascinating study of young activists should be read by all social scientists. It reinvigorates debates on social movements and the problem of youth, whilst providing a much-needed antidote to the current pessimism about the possibilities of activism and the political engagement of young people."
— Diane Reay, Professor of Education, Cambridge University

After the Occupy movements began, the words “income inequality'” quintupled on news databases and yet now it seems the conversation has moved on. Is the Occupy phenomenon the voice of a new progressive movement  or a spontaneous short-lived manifestation of dissatisfaction? What is the fate of the 99 percent and the 1 percent as forces of change? Can the Occupy movement occupy the agenda?

 

Amanda Joy, an Occupy participant and organizer is joined by Joel Westheimer from the University of Ottawa, and Carleton’s Jacqueline Kennelly, author of Citizen Youth: Culture, Activism, and Agency in a Neoliberal Era. Join us for a conversation that speaks to the very heart of our democracy.
