The Society and Protest Workshop was founded from the joining of two, longer-running existing workshops, the Civil Society Workshop and the Politics and Protest Workshop. Like their predecessors, they are interdisciplinary workshops that welcome contributions from students and faculty, as well as interested people not affiliated with the university, and they are open to all.

This semester will feature a paper, a panel discussion, and a presentation for feedback and discussion. The format includes at least one discussant and ample time for participation among workshop attendees. All sessions will be conducted online via Zoom.
