Cristina Flesher Fominaya participates with a lecture titled “The Indignados as Autonomous Movement: Tracing Movement Continuity from the GJM” at the conference “Street Politics in the Age of Austerity. From the Indignados to Occupy“, to be held at the Carrefour des arts et des sciences, Université de Montréal, on 21 February 2013. The conference aims at bringing together scholars who have conducted research and field work during the recent wave of public square occupations (cf. the “Indignados” and the Occupy Movement) and anti-austerity protests in Europe and North America. The goal is to situate this wave of protests with respect to the global justice movement of the late 1990s and early 2000s, understand its dynamic by looking at its embeddeness in varieties of local and national histories, and put it in the contemporary context of worldwide struggles against austerity.
