Action research workshop series / Marxism and social movements

The participatory action research programme in social movement practice at NUI Maynooth Sociology is organising a fortnightly workshop series this year which some listmembers may be interested in. This will mostly be a writers' / presenters' workshop, with one participant either circulating a written piece of work or giving a presentation and others commenting on the form / delivery as well as the content of the work, but we will have workshops on other themes, including visiting speakers.

The first three workshops will be on Wednesdays from 2 - 4 in NUI Maynooth's Auxilia building ( for directions), with the first three sessions being October 21st, November 4th and November 18th. The opening workshop will be given by Laurence Cox on "Marxism and social movements", using a range of material from an international edited collection in the area.

All welcome.
