> Jeffrey Juris revisits the significance of the #Occupy Everywhere movements
> in 2011-12, examining the links between social media, public space, and
> emerging forms of civil disobedience in an increasingly transnational and
> digitised world.
> 
> Whereas Internet listservs and websites helped give rise to a widespread
> logic of networking within the movements for global justice of the
> 1990sâ2000s, Jeffrey Juris argues that social media contributed to an
> emerging logic of aggregation in the more recent #Occupy movementsâone that
> involves the assembling of masses of individuals from diverse backgrounds
> within physical spaces. However, despite a shift toward more decentralised
> forms of organising and networking, the #Occupy movements proved largely
> unable to maintain their momentum following the eviction of #Occupy
> encampments around the world, raising important questions about the
> sustainability of social movements in an age of social media.
> 
> Jeffrey Juris is an Associate Professor of Anthropology in the Department of
> Sociology and Anthropology at Northeastern University. He is the author of
> Networking Futures: the Movements against Corporate Globalization (Duke
> University Press, 2008), co-author of Global Democracy and the World Social
> Forums (Paradigm Press, 2008) and co-editor of Insurgent Encounters:
> Transnational Activism, Ethnography, and the Political (Duke University
> Press, 2013). He is currently writing a new book about media and autonomy
> based on fifteen months of ethnographic research on 'free' or pirate radio
> activism in Mexico City and beyond.

> Admission is Free. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.

> This lecture takes place as part of the 'Civil Disobedience Beyond the

> Cultural Analysis, the Department of Philosophy at the University of
> Amsterdam, and the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and
