Two New Special Issues out on Occupations and Encampments
Posted on August 20,

*This summer sees the publication of two new special features on
encampments and occupations in South Atlantic Quarterly and
Social Movement Studies. Protest Camps’ had the opportunity to contribute
to both of these great collections and recommends them to all those
reflecting on these recent movements.*

In December 2011, Protest Camps’ Anna Feigenbaum helped Emma
Dowling<>run an open
workshop at Occupy LSX reflecting on some of the successes and
challenges of the movement. With Susan Pell and Katherine Stanley from Tent
City University<>,
put together a short piece arising from these discussions and their own
experiences at the camp.

Tent City Uni by lyope

Their collective reflections are now published in the special segment
‘Encampments and Occupations’ out in the Summer 2012 issue of *South
Atlantic Quarterly* (111:3). The issue also features reflections on Tahrir
Square, M15 and Occupy Wall Street, as well as an introductory note by
journal editor and prominent social movement theorist Michael

You can read the abstract below and download the full article (with uni
access*) from South Atlantic

This essay brings together the authors’ experiences and observations with
reflections gathered in an open workshop about Occupy London organized
under the banner of the Tent City University working group.The essay posits
Occupy London not as one entity but as an organizing process located in
more than one area within the City of London. They see Occupy London as
both a powerful idea and as a material practice. The authors reflect on the
social composition, organizational politics, and infrastructure of Occupy
London. They conclude that, aside from the challenges of collective
organization and the desire to maintain visibility, one recurring concern
within the Occupy London movement is how its embodied practices of struggle
can emanate from centralized and often symbolic moments into the everyday
realms of production and reproduction within society.

A special issue of Social Movement
comes out this month, featuring reflections on Occupy Wall Street, M15,
Tahrir, Israel and more. The double edition, edited by Jenny
Pickerill<>and colleagues,   includes
some much welcomed further analyses looking at
questions around
legacies <>as
they relate to and shape contemporary mobilisations. For their
contribution, Protest Camps’ offers an engaging review of n+1′s new
book Occupy! Scenes
from Occupied America
<>released by Verso.
