Excited to present at Cornell University’s conference From Meydan Tahrir to Wisconsin: Rethinking Revolution, Democracy and Citizenship  this weekend!  I’ll be presenting my paper “Spanish Revolution: Youth, Dissent & “Occupying” Space in Madrid” on a panel titled  Space, Time, & Occupation, which will consider the tactics and strategies used by young people in the summer of 2011 to reappropriate public space in Spain in an attempt to demonstrate possible alternatives to democratic systems—utilizing theory from Michel de Certeau, Habermas, and Lefebvre.   I’ll be discussing my own experiences during the first month of the 15-M movement in Spain, as compared with the first month at Occupy Wall Street.  For anyone interested in my paper, please contact me.
