Lecture | Valeria Vegh Weis: Criminalization of Activism

News from Sep 20, 2023

Simon Teune vom Teilprojekt B03 hat gemeinsam mit Kolleg*innen des Instituts für Protest- und Bewegungsforschung Valeria Vegh Weis von der Universität Buenos Aires (zurzeit Universität Konstanz) zu einer Lecture eingeladen, die in den Räumlichkeiten des SFB Intervenierende Künste stattfindet. Am 28. September 2023 um 17.00 Uhr stellt Valeria Vegh Weis ihr Buch "Criminalization of Activism. Historical, Present and Future Perspectives" vor. Sie schreibt:

The presentation will explore the content of the book Criminalization of Activism edited by Valeria and published by Routledge last year. The book draws on a multiplicity of perspectives and case studies from the Global South and Global North to show how protest has been subject to processes of criminalization over time. Contributors are made of up scholars and activists from different disciplinary backgrounds, with a balance between authors from the Global North and the Global South. The introduction by Valeria frames the topic within critical criminology, while also highlighting the possible disciplinary approaches and definitions of criminalization of resistance/activism. The introduction also investigates the particularities of the current times in comparison to dynamics of criminalization in prior stages of capitalism, as well as the connections between historical criminology, indigenous studies, gender studies, critical criminology, southern criminology, and green criminology for a comprehensive understanding of how dissent has been and continues to be the target of the criminal justice system at both sides of the Equator.
