Dr. Lesley Wood РWaves of Protest: Direct Action, Deliberation and Diffusion 

How do waves of protest spread to new sites? Why do protests spark imitators in some cities and not others? Drawing on the research on the spread of tactics in the global justice wave of protest featured in Direct Action, Deliberation and Diffusion, Wood will argue that understanding the ebbs and flows of contemporary cycles of protest requires close examination of micro-level processes of identification, deliberation and brokerage. 

Dr. Lesley Wood, a Professor in the Department of Sociology, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies at York University is the 2013 recipient of the John Porter Tradition of Excellence Book Award for her work, ‘Direct Action, Deliberation, and Diffusion: Collective Action after the WTO Protests in Seattle.’ Cambridge University Press 2012
