Reliving a utopian past as a form of protest: Sociology and Anthropology Research Series
Friday, November 12, 2021, 12:00 pm – 1:15 pmFree
Dr. Daniel Jaster of Eureka College will be sharing his book and research, “Returning home: Midwestern farm protests and re-living bygone utopias as resistance.”
Jaster asks, “Why protest by actively re-living a past?” and “Why then, now?” During his talk he will reflect on social change and how people interact with it. He claims that embodying a bygone utopia can re-empower communities. In particular, Jaster will focus on Midwestern farmers’ protests forms from the 1830s through the 1980s.
