In the last decade, massive street protests have again come to the fore as a go-to mode of expressing political criticism. Today, people in many places around the world are raising their voices and taking to the streets to protest against both long overdue forms of injustice and current perils to civil and human rights posed by right populist governments.


In this conference, we are looking at what actually happens when people take to the streets. Reflecting upon the phenomenon of street protests, we pursue a better understanding of impulses leading to protests, their intersubjective dynamics, the structure and meaning of spaces where they are being enacted and the diverse practices of this enactment. In its attentiveness to embodied experience and commitment to critique, the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of critical phenomenology, broadly construed, offers a unique way to analyse the subjective and intersubjective dynamics of street protests, the role of embodied togetherness and the meaning of (re)claiming the public space.
