(Re)configuring collective action: social contexts, community ties, and network-building

| |
In this panel, papers examine the density of network ties both as influence on, and outcome of, social movement participation, and inter-relationships among labour unions, non-profits, activists, and provincial governments in an era of neoliberalism. The specific cases through which these issues are illustrated include movements for Black Lives and rights in the US and Nova Scotia, labour-allied progressive movement organizations in Quebec, and non-profit service providers in Ontario. The time period extends from the 1700s to 2020.

Anti-Asian Racism in Canada: Historical, Social, Economic, Cultural, and Political Processes I

| |
Since the global outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, assaults on individuals of Asian descent have increased dramatically in Canada and other western countries. The rise of anti-Asian racism and the experiences of racism by Asians during the pandemic are rooted in historical and institutional structures that are xenophobic and exclusionary. These two sessions bring together papers which explore the historical, social, economic, cultural, and political processes which inform and are informed by anti-Asian racism, as well as the impact of anti-Asian racism on Asians and Asian communities using diverse theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches.

Organizers: Guida Man, York University, Alvin Yang, Universität Kassel and University of Ottawa
