Call for Contributions: RIOTS – Violence as politics? International Conference, 19-20 May 2017, Berlin, Organizers: Working Group Riots within the Institut für Protest- und Bewegungsforschung (ipb)

“Riots” continue to make headlines in the media, usually as a violent reaction to occurrences of police brutality, or in the context of broader political protest and movement mobilizations as, for example, in demonstrations turning violent or movements applying both violent and non-violent forms of action as given in the context of the “Nuit Débout” protests directed against the labour market reforms 2016 in France. However, all too often the notion of “riots” is used in a seemingly self-evident way, leaving more questions than answers. While there have arguably been new developments in conceptualizing and studying riots in recent scientific publications, this critical observation still holds true not only for discourses on riots in the mass media, but also for many scientific contributions dealing with riots in one way or the other.

Apart from describing clashes with the police, sometimes involving attacks on private or public property, looting or arson, there is no shared definition of the term “riots”, nor is there an agreement on how to study riots, their effects concerning social change or processes of political subjectivation. With its focus on durable organizational frameworks and long-lasting processes of mobilization, the research on social movements often excludes the seemingly spontaneous, unorganized and violent forms of action. The fact that rioters may not always articulate their demands in conventional ways, like offering messages and claims on signs and leaflets, seems to further interfere with their inclusion into Social Movement Studies. On the other hand, when riots are addressed through the lens of collective violence, they are often dealt with as one form of violent group behavior among others, thereby disregarding the specific motivational and structural aspects regularly involved in the emergence of riots. Therefore, both Social Movement Studies as well as research on (collective) violence often still exclude riots as a subject of research, or they tend to describe riots as somehow apolitical phenomena. Even when social inequality is acknowledged as a causal factor, studies often describe riots as a fatalistic reaction to social circumstances and living conditions, thus failing to recognize rioters as political subjects and the processes of political subjectivation involved.

Following up on the Riot-Workshop series of the Arbeitskreis Riot (AK Riot) at the Institut für Protest- und Bewegungsforschung (ipb) in Berlin, we are pleased to invite you to the 6th workshop as part of the international two-day conference “Riots. Violence as politics?”.

We want to discuss with you riots as a concept and phenomenon and therefore give room for presentations of your research regarding riots. We would like to invite you to send us a short proposal for a presentation on the following (or related) questions:

The pros and cons of the term “riot”
The term “riot” contains the terminological danger of unifying social phenomena that differ in their forms, contents and backgrounds. Against this backdrop, the term “riot” can be put into question: is the term as such scientifically capable of grasping forms of protest that are outside established forms of political articulation? Or would it be more reasonable to abandon the notion of “riots” and adopt other terminological concepts such as “collective violence”? For example, it could be argued that reading riots as a form of collective violence refers to a comparably low common denominator of different social phenomena, but avoids transgressing historical and contextual specificities and differences.

Riots and violence
What is the role of violence in riots? How can we understand different forms of violence in relation to riots? How can violence be conceptualized as a form of action? Can violence in the context of riots be understood as a means of communication? What role do violent actions play for the representation of riots in the public discourse?

Riots and political subjectivation
Why do people participate in riots? Are riots to be understood as a rejection of representational forms of political involvement? Are riots even political at all? What kind of political subjectivity do riots presuppose? How do they affect or constitute processes of political subjectivation?

Riots and social movements
How can we understand and conceptualize the relation between social movements and riots? How can riots be fruitfully included in Social Movement Studies? Can riots be a starting point for the formation of more organized and lasting collective actors? How do social movement organizations position themselves in relation to riots and other forms of violent action?

We warmly welcome presentations of your research projects, bachelor or master theses, PhD chapters or proposals, article drafts or other scientific work in progress. If you want to present and discuss your work and ideas, please submit your proposal (1-2 pages) to riot_workshop(at)riseup.net until 15 March 2017. The workshop as well as the conference will be held in English, so both your proposal or draft paper as well as the presentation should be in English. In order to have enough time to discuss all contributions, your presentation should not exceed 20 minutes.

If you would like to participate without holding a presentation, please let us also know until 31 March 2017. In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Call for Papers „Riots“ – Arbeitstitel für ein sub\urban Themenheft

Die Konzentration verschiedener sozialer Ungleichheiten macht urbane Räume auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise zu Schauplätzen sozialer Konflikte. Historisch wie aktuell sind sie Austragungsort für Massendemonstrationen und andere Aktionsformen von Protestbewegungen, und immer wieder auch für sogenannte riots: Jugendaufstände in marginalisierten Vierteln europäischer Metropolen, food riots als Proteste gegen steigende Lebensmittelpreise in Städten des globalen Südens und ritualisierte Kämpfe zwischen linken Gruppierungen und staatlichen Ordnungsinstitutionen sind einige Beispiele hierfür. Trotz der unterschiedlichen Kontexte, in denen riots stattfinden, werden ihnen gemeinhin Charakteristika wie Spontanität, Unorganisiertheit und Gewalt zugeschrieben.

Die wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Protestformen und widerständigen Praktiken ist bisher vor allem in der Sozialen Bewegungsforschung zu verorten. Somit stellen Phänomene oder Ereignisse, die sich nicht mit den gängigen Definitionskriterien für neue soziale Bewegungen erfassen lassen, in diesem Rahmen eine analytische Herausforderung dar. So wird kontrovers diskutiert, ob riots überhaupt als politisch gelten können. Daher bleiben sie als Forschungsobjekte tendenziell ausgeschlossen. Zwar gibt es Analysen, die untersuchen, welche Beweggründe Menschen dazu motivieren, an einem riot teilzunehmen und sich damit für eine bestimmte Art der Artikulation im öffentlichen Raum zu entscheiden. Ebenso ist gefragt worden, wie riots diskursiv verhandelt, repräsentiert, vereinnahmt und in Beziehung zu anderen gesellschaftlichen Konflikten gesetzt werden. Aber es bleibt umstritten, was der Begriff riot umfasst, welchen analytischen Mehrwert er hat, und in welchem Verhältnis er zu Begriffen wie „Revolte“, „Aufstand“ oder „Massenprotest“ steht.

Das geplante Themenheft zu riots möchte diese konzeptuelle Offenheit als Chance begreifen, um sich aus verschiedenen theoretischen Perspektiven dem Phänomen kritisch anzunähern. Folgende Fragenkomplexe sollen hierbei als Denkanstöße fungieren:

  • Inwiefern lässt sich der Gegenstand riots definitorisch fassen? Inwiefern handelt es sich bei gewaltvollen Ausschreitungen, Plünderungen und Brandstiftung um zentrale Charakteristika von riots?
  • Können soziale Bewegungen und riots getrennt voneinander analysiert werden? Ist die häufige definitorische Unterscheidung zwischen sozialen Bewegungen als kollektiver, zielgerichteter und nachhaltiger Aktions- und Organisierungsform und riots als punktuelles, emotional initiiertes und in seiner Wirkung destruktives Ereignis zutreffend? Oder ist es eher notwendig zu fragen, wie sich soziale Bewegungen und riots zueinander verhalten, und welche Wechselwirkungen zwischen ihnen bestehen?
  • Handelt es sich bei riots um abgrenzbare Ereignisse, oder sind sie Teil eines umfassenderen Prozesses? Wie stehen riots mit alltäglichen konfliktiven Verhältnissen in Zusammenhang? Inwiefern lassen sich riots aus einer prozess-orientierten Perspektive mit alltäglichen Formen von Widerständigkeit und Protest erklären?
  • Können spezifische Faktoren als ursächlich für die Entstehung von riots identifiziert werden? Wie lassen sich ggf. die Zusammenhänge zwischen sozialer Benachteiligungen, Marginalisierungs- und Exklusionserfahrungen und individueller sowie kollektiver Motivstruktur der Aufständischen fassen?
  • Welche Relevanz hat die Stadt als Sozialraum für soziale und politische Auseinandersetzungen? Welche Rolle spielen die sich in der Stadt räumlich ausprägenden sozialen Ungleichheiten? Wie trägt Urbanität mit ihrer Infrastruktur und ihrer Pluralität zur Herausbildung von Protesten bei? Welche Rolle spielt etwa die Verfügung über Netzwerke und Ressourcen bei der Entstehung von sozialen Bewegungen oder riots?
  • Wie werden riots in der Öffentlichkeit verhandelt? Welche Bedeutungen werden riots in Medien, Politik und Wissenschaft diskursiv zugeschrieben, und welche Verschränkungen bestehen etwa zu Diskursen über benachteiligte Quartiere, Kriminalität oder öffentlicher Sicherheit? In welchem Verhältnis stehen dabei Selbst-Inszenierungen und Fremdzuschreibungen aller beteiligten Akteure? Welche Auswirkungen haben verschiedene gewaltvolle Ausprägungen von Widerstand auf die öffentliche Wahrnehmung und Verhandlung von Protest und dessen Legitimität? Welche Bilder von Männlichkeit und Weiblichkeit, Alter sowie Ethnizität werden über riots generell und Gewalt im Speziellen (re)produziert?
  • Wer beteiligt sich auf welche Weise an riots und welche sozialstrukturellen Kategorien sind dabei relevant? Was bedeutet die Gewaltförmigkeit eines riots und die soziale Dynamik, die durch Gewalt produziert wird, konkret für den Ein- und Ausschluss von Teilnehmenden, wenn beispielsweise der rechtliche Status, körperliche Befähigung und soziale Kategorien wie Geschlecht mit berücksichtigt werden?
  • Wie lassen sich riots im Spannungsfeld von (progressivem) sozialem Wandel einerseits und der Stabilisierung bestehender Macht- und Herrschaftsverhältnisse andererseits verorten? Können riots als Ausgangspunkt für die politische Subjektwerdung, für Kollektivierungs- und Organisierungsprozesse marginalisierter Bevölkerungsgruppen dienen? Erweitern sie deren politische Handlungsspielräume und den Zugang zum Diskurs, indem sie Forderungen sichtbar machen, oder ist das Gegenteil der Fall?

Wir bitten um die Einreichung von Abstracts (300 – 700 Wörter) für Aufsätze bis zum 23. Januar 2015. Diese können sich gerne auf eine oder mehrere der hier formulierten Fragenkomplexe beziehen, wir möchten aber auch zu eigenen kritisch-innovativen Ideen und Ansätzen ermutigen. Sowohl theoretisch-methodische Beiträge als auch empirische Untersuchungen sind willkommen. Das Themenheft ist aus globaler Perspektive offen für die Vielfältigkeit des Phänomens riots. Empirische Beispiele aus verschiedenen geographischen Kontexten sowie historische Untersuchungen sind willkommen.

Außerdem bitten wir um Einreichungen für die offene Rubrik „Magazin“. Hier freuen wir uns über Rezensionen, Interviews, photographische Arbeiten, literarische Texte und andere kreative Formate mit Bezug zum Thema riots. Wie in der sub\urban üblich, ist auch eine Debatte geplant, in der mehrere Autor_innen auf einen Text reagieren und dazu Stellung beziehen. Hier soll die Frage diskutiert werden, wie sich der politische Gehalt von riots und urbanen Bewegungen, und deren etwaiges emanzipatives Potenzial fassen lassen können. Wer Interesse hat, sich an der Debatte zu beteiligen, kann sich gerne bei uns melden.

Abstracts sowie Fragen können an folgende Adresse geschickt werden: themenheft_suburban(at)riseup.net

Wir sind gespannt und freuen uns auf eure/Ihre Einreichungen.

Call for papers: Workshop “Riots IV – Riots and Anarchy”

Date: Friday, November 28, 2014, 10:00 – 18:00
Venue: Zentrum Technik und Gesellschaft, TU Berlin, Hardenbergstrasse 16-18, Room 6.06
Organizers: Ingo Schröder & Fatma Umul

The fourth riots workshop wants to take a closer look at the kinds of social relationships and collective identifications that emerge from riots and other protest events, both as singular moments and as elements in a larger process of non-hierarchical organizing. The recent rise of global protest movements, among other things, has been responsible for a reinvigorated interest in notions of anarchy among social scientists, in possible ways how non-hierarchical socialities can be established and sustained. Studies of riots, protest events and the “newest social movements” (R. Day) in general have described the – at least temporary – replacing of social hierarchies and institutionalized inequalities by affinity group-based decision-making and notions of reclaiming the commons, in terms of space and sociality alike. More critical voices, by contrast, have cautioned against an overly romantic view of resistance and anarchy and against the premature assumption that singular occasions of collective action are indeed kernels of a new world.

Especially within anthropology, which has a long history of dealing with nonhierarchical social contexts, there is a broad spectrum of conceptual tools for describing social processes within riots and protest events: they may be considered in classical terms as moments of collective effervescence (E. Durkheim), occasions of communitas (V. Turner) or expressions of egalitarianism (J. Woodburn, D. Riches), or, in terms of more recent theorizing, as occasions of the prefiguration of a truly democratic future beyond capitalism (D. Graeber, M. Maeckelbergh) or as starting points for the establishment of horizontal social relations (M. Sitrin).

The workshop participants are invited to reflect on the usefulness of such concepts for coming to terms with the kind of social relations that emerge from riots and, even more importantly, to flesh them out with ethnographic data from their own research experiences. The workshop is designed as a mixture of colloquium and open discussion, aiming to provide an open and interdisciplinary space for sharing ideas, discussing research findings, ongoing projects and methodological and empirical questions. The first part is dedicated to presentations, the second part to an open discussion of general theoretical and empirical issues.

We welcome contributions that address some of the following or related issues:

  • Collective identifications: who is participating in riots and protest events? In what way are existing social boundaries blurred and new forms of collective identifications created? What role do existing forms of organization (political groups) play vis-à-vis the multitude of individual actors?
  • Gender: what role do women and LGBT actors play in riots and protest events? How important is the identification in terms of gender in comparison to others (age, class, etc.)?
  • Leadership: are riots expressions of “leaderless” or “leader-full” movements? What forms of decision-making and leadership emerge? In which ways is the goal of anarchy/egalitarianism pursued and mechanisms of equal participation created and sustained? What idea of sociality underlies the actors’ motivations for pursuing the goal of
    horizontalism?
  • Time: what is the relationship between event and process – can moments of anarchic sociality be stabilized into long-term horizontal social relations? If so, how is this achieved?
  • Theory: are existing analytical concepts adequate for describing the social dynamics in riots and protest events? What are the respective advantages or weaknesses of approaches from sociology, anthropology, social psychology or feminist theory?
  • Methodology: what empirical methods offer themselves for capturing the social moment of collective action? How can the emergence of social relations in collective action be studied? What new concepts emerge from participant observation?

Presentations may be given in English or German and should not exceed 15 minutes in length. We strongly encourage new participants to submit! In order to facilitate discussion, draft papers of the presentation should be submitted until
November 20. Please send your proposals (1-2 pages) until October 31, 2014 to ingo.schroeder(at)staff.uni-marburg.de and fatmaumul(at)gmail.com.

Call for Contributions: Workshop “Riot!” Part II, February 28th, 2014, 10am to 6pm, Institut für Protest- und Bewegungsforschung i.G., Berlin

Following up to the fruitful and interdisciplinary discussions At the first „Riot!“ workshop in December 2013, where we discussed a broad range of research projects (MA and PhD theses), engaging with the topic of riots and rioting in different geographical and historical contexts, from squatting movements in Potsdam in the 1980s and 1990s, to urban uprisings in Manchester, Paris and Stockholm, to food riots in Burkina Faso and 18th century slave insurrections in the Caribbean, we are glad to announce that a second workshop will take place in late February.

To keep interesting discussions going in an inclusive way, we would like to direct this call especially to people who did not take part in the first workshop, and to encourage them to participate.

We are planning to divide the second workshop into two parts:

  • in the first part you will get the opportunity to present and discuss your own research project / paper / paper draft;
  • in the second part we will engage in group discussions about one or several of the following topics:

1. Riot / Revolt vs. ‘Political protest’

‘Articulate messages’ vs. ‘Communication through frustration/violence’ What are the defining criteria for riots / revolts and social movements? In which ways are they similar or different, for instance in regard to their repertoire of action and the ways they articulate themselves? Subjectivities Concerning the actors in riots or social movements – what counts as legitimate political subjectivity? Age/Youth as category of disqualification of rioters (intersecting with gender, ‘race’, class)

2. Aspects of organising and representation

Perception of riots as a preliminary stage of recognition and representation; Reproach of boycotting ‘legitimate’, institutionalised forms of participation; Are riots an expression of the ‘crisis of representation’, or ‘post-politics’? Or are these merely new terms describing old phenomena? In how far are riots an inherent, always reoccurring part within capitalist societies / representative democracies and other state forms? What is (not) new about riots? Can everything that is usually referred to by the term ‘riots’ be
put in one category?

3. Methodological approaches

Analysis of causalities vs. narratives: Which possibilities and traps do these approaches entail, which consequences follow from their application?

4. Who conducts research on what and with which aim?

Discussion about the researcher’s perspective and own involvement (for instance the risk of romanticizing riots and rioters, or reifying categories like ‘marginalisation’), as well as risks of appropriation of knowledge for ends not intended (e.g. by the police and other state organs)

5. Relation between (urban) space and riots

How do rioters make use of space, how do they transform space? Urban space as site for social conflict and social change; Notions of public space and legitimate uses of public space.

If you would like to participate, send us an email before the 30th of January. If you want to present your own work, please indicate the topic so we can include it in our programme. For all presentations, please prepare a handout or a draft paper and send it to us by the 21st of February, so we can circulate it among all participants. Presentations and handouts can be in English or German.

It would be great if you could let us know which of the topics above would interest you most for the group discussion part, so that we can select a few in line with the participants’ interests.

In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Riots sind in den letzten Jahren im Zuge der weltweiten Krisenproteste, insbesondere in Südeuropa, der riots in Großbritannien im August 2011, in den französischen Banlieus, in Stockholm, Istanbul und an vielen Orten mehr Gegenstand politischer und medialer Debatten geworden. In den Sozialwissenschaften beschäftigen sich unter anderem die kritische Stadtforschung sowie die Bewegungs- und Protestforschung damit.

Der Workshop dient dem Austausch und kollegialem Feedback zu laufenden Forschungsarbeiten zum Thema riots. Der Workshop richtet sich an Menschen, die sich in wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten beispielsweise mit folgenden Fragen beschäftigen:

  • Was verstehen wir unter riots? Wie unterscheiden wir sie von anderen Phänomenen wie politischem Protest oder sozialen Bewegungen? Inwiefern sind riots als kollektives Handeln zu verstehen?
  • Inwiefern ist von riots als einem einheitlichen Phänomen zu sprechen – welcher Differenzierungen bedarf der Begriff ggf.?
  • Unter welchen Bedingungen und in welchen Kontexten entstehen riots?
  • Inwiefern und in welcher Weise werden riots von anderen Akteuren zu „Objekten von Politik“ gemacht?
  • Inwiefern sind riots als „politisch“ zu konzeptualisieren? Wie werden riots als „politische Phänomene“ diskutiert?
  • Wie können wir rioters als politische Subjekte theoretisch und empirisch fassen?
  • Mit welchen theoretischen, methodologischen und methodischen Zugängen untersuchen wir riots?

Arbeiten, Textentwürfe und Forschungsvorhaben sollen durch die Autor_innen vorgestellt (max. 15 Minuten) und ggf. durch eine andere Person kommentiert werden. Bis zum 3. Dezember sollte dazu etwas Schriftliches (Textentwurf, Exposé, Thesenpapier etc.) vorliegen, das an die Teilnehmer_innen als Diskussionsgrundlage verschickt werden kann.

Vorschläge für Beiträge bitte bis zum 21. Oktober an: bettina.engels(at)fu-berlin.de

Crisis protests all over the world, riots in the UK, the French banlieu, in Stockholm, Istanbul, and many more places: riots are currently in the focus of political and media debates, as well as in academic fields such as urban studies and research on social movements and political protest, among others,

This workshop aims at enhancing exchange and feedback among scholars working on riots, related to questions such as:

  • What do we actually mean by ‚riots‘? How do they differ from phenomena such as political protest and social movements? In how far do we understand riots as collective action?
  • In how far can we think of riots as a single phenomenon – or how should they be differentiated?
  • Under which conditions and in what contexts do riots emerge?
  • In how far and in which ways are riots made ‚objects of politics‘ by other actors?
  • In how far can riots be conceptualized as ‚political‘ action? How are they debated as ‚political phenomena‘?
  • How can we deal with rioters as political subjects, both theoretically and empirically?
  • Which theoretical and methodological approaches and which research methods are suitable for researching riots?

Contributors are supposed to send paper drafts until early December. We are looking foward to abstracts for contributions until 25 October. Please send abstracts to: bettina.engels(at)fu-berlin.de

Call for papers: Politics, Consumption or Nihilism: Disorder and Protest, the UK and beyond. Conference at the Sheffield Hallam University, September 13th-14th 2012, organizers: David Waddington, Bob Jeffery and Joseph Ibrahim

Since 2010 the world has witnessed the rise of some major political protest movements and revolts across the globe, including the Greek riots and the Arab spring. In the UK, August 2011 saw the most widespread and sustained disorder on English streets in living memory. In London alone (as of October 2011) this
has led to approximately 3,000 arrests (London Evening Standard) and the cost of the riots are estimated at somewhere between £200-300 million (The Guardian).

Yet those riots were only the latest incarnation of a wave of disorder and protests that has swept through the country since the onset of the financial crisis and the election of a coalition government committed to cutting state-spending through a rolling back of a range of services. Of equal significance has been the mobilization of students and young people through various campaigns to resist the cuts in the education budget, the increase of university tuition fees and the removal of the Educational Maintenance Allowance, leading to mass-demonstrations characterized by outbreaks of violence between demonstrators and the police.

The aim of this conference is to explore both theoretically and empirically the political dynamics of recent protest events since 2010. In this respect, to consider new ways of understanding the recent protests and mobilizations which go beyond popular narrative tropes.

We invite papers that are relevant to the general analytic conference themes:

  • Movements and Networks
  • Neighbourhoods and exclusion
  • Class and race inequalities
  • Contemporary political economy
  • The role of policing
  • Media representations of protest

Broad empirical foci could include, but is not limited to:

  • The Arab Spring
  • The Greek protests
  • UK Educational protests
  • August 2011 riots
  • Anti-cuts movements and trade union mobilisations
  • The Occupy movement

Keynote speakers
Prof. Nick Crossley, University of Manchester, Co-founder of the Mitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis, author of Relational Sociology; Contesting Psychiatry: Social movements in mental health;
Reflexive Embodiment in Contemporary Society; and Making Sense of Social Movements, amongst other works.

Prof. Simon Hallsworth, London Metropolitan University, Director of the Centre for Social and Evaluation Research, author of Punitive States: Punishment and the Economy of Violence; The New Punitiveness:
Trends, Theories, Perspectives; Street Crime; Cybercrime: Impact and Responses to Cyber Threats and The Criminology of Pleasure, amongst other works.

Prof. Tim Hope, University of Salford, Chair of Criminology is Scientific Advisor to the International Centre for the prevention of Crime, he is Editorial Advisor to Safer Communities, Criminal Justice
Matters and the European Journal of Policing Studies. He is the author of over a 100 research publications in 9 languages.

Prof. David Waddington, Sheffield Hallam University, Director of the Communications and Computing Research Centre, author of Policing Public Disorder: Theory and Practice; Rioting in the UK and France; Contemporary Issues in Public Disorder: A Comparative and Historical Approach and Flashpoints: Studies in Public Disorder, amongst other works.

Submission of papers
To offer a paper please e-mail an abstract of approximately 300 words with ‚PCN Abstract‘ in the subject box, to the Conference Secretariat: e-mail conference21(at)shu.ac.uk. The deadline for papers is Friday 24th August 2012
