Social Movements in a Changing World

Disharmony, affinity, and solidarity at the intersections

School of Social Sciences PhD Conference 2022

1st June 2022, University of Manchester


Welcome to the website for “Social Movements in a Changing World,” the 2022 School of Social Sciences Conference.

The theme of this year’s conference is Social Movements in a Changing World. The social movements that impact societies today are diverse, politically, culturally, and organisationally. They navigate our changing world in sometimes unexpected ways: ‘change’ is complex, constant, and often counterintuitive.

This conference seeks to critically examine social movements as they intersect with one another and encounter, enact, and react to our changing world. The list below is an indicative topic guide. Social movements are complex, they intersect, overlap and take on multiple issues simultaneously.
