Protest is a ubiquitous and richly varied social phenomenon, one that finds expression not only in modern social movements and political organizations but also in grassroots initiatives, individual action, and creative works. It constitutes a distinct cultural domain, one whose symbolic content is regularly deployed by media and advertisers, among other actors. Yet within social movement scholarship, such cultural considerations have been comparatively neglected. Protest Cultures: A Companion dramatically expands the analytical perspective on protest beyond its political and sociological aspects. It combines cutting-edge synthetic essays with concise, accessible case studies on a remarkable array of protest cultures, outlining key literature and future lines of inquiry.

Kathrin Fahlenbrach is Professor of Media Studies at the University of Hamburg, Germany. She is the author of Audiovisual Metaphors: Embodied and Affective Aesthetics of Film and Television (2010) and co-editor of Media and Revolt: Strategies and Performances from the 1960s to the Present (2014).
