Event description
Lancaster Literacy Research Centre are delighted to welcome Jamie Duncan to discuss Researching Protest Literacies.

About this Event

This Lancaster Literacy Research Centre event will be a talk from Jamie Duncan, titled Researching Protest Literacies.


How should historic periods of social protest underway whilst researchers are doing fieldwork be researched? In this talk for Lancaster Literacy Research Centre, I describe the ethnographic and historical approach that I adopted whilst researching one such moment in Brazil from 2013-2014. In doing so, I discuss material from my recently published book, Researching Protest Literacies: Literacy as Protest in the Favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Combining concepts from the New Literacy Studies, Social Movement Studies, and related areas, the talk and book it draws from focuses on how research on protesting, literacies, trajectories, and technologies can be brought together, linking situated accounts of events and practices, with localised perspectives on broader streams and cycles of contentious politics.
