Social Movements Research
The Social Movements Group was founded in September 2000 as a cross-departmental and multi-disciplinary research group, based at Edge Hill College of Higher Education in North-West England but drawing upon the energies of activists and academics from around the globe. We study social movements past and present; the theories which have been developed to understand and explain social movements; and the ideas (political ideologies, social and cultural thought, structures of feeling) which have animated social movements. We work within and across a range of disciplines. Currently members range across sociology, history, womens studies, politics and cultural studies but we would welcome the participation from those with other disciplinary ‘homes’ and from those with none.
