The CoMMonS Book Talks Series presents groundbreaking books published on social movements, collective actions, and critical thinking about contentious politics. During book talks, authors will engage into a conversation with a small panel of discussants, including academics, activists, and practitioners working in the civil society sector.
The CoMMonS Book Talks Series is a collaborative transnational endeavor jointly organized by the Copenhagen Centre for Political Mobilisation and Social Movement Studies, in Denmark, and the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Bologna, in Italy. Each book talk lasts about 1 hour and it is online, free, and open to everyone.
Paul Lichterman is professor of sociology and religion at the University of Southern California. He is author of the award-winning books Elusive Togetherness (Princeton) and The Search for Political Community, and the coeditor of The Civic Life of American Religion.
