*Memories and Movements*
(Guest editors: Priska Daphi and Lorenzo Zamponi)

In recent years, movement scholars have become increasingly interested in
the nexus between movements and memories. At the same time, memory studies
are paying growing attention to agency, resilience and resistance lately.
The 50th anniversary of 1968 movements around the world provides a good
opportunity to bring the different strands of research on movements and
memory together. Deepening our understanding of movements’ legacies and
relationships with the past is also gaining importance in the context of
calls for widening the temporal lens in analyzing social movements and
paying more attention to the historical embeddedness of protests. The
journal Mobilization seeks contributions for a special issue on memories
and movements, guest edited by Priska Daphi (Goethe University Frankfurt)
and Lorenzo Zamponi (Scuola Normale Superiore). Mobilization will publish
the special issue in December 2019.

For the special issue, we seek high-quality, original research articles
from all disciplines that explore different dimensions of the interaction
between memory and social movements. We welcome theoretical and empirical
articles that address memories as outcomes of mobilization and/or as
significant factors in shaping further mobilization. Central questions
include, but are not limited to:
•    How do social movements participate or intervene in public memories
about past contentions and other historical events?
•    How do social movements remember themselves or previous movements?
•    How does the past and its public remembrance influence mobilization?

Manuscripts should be submitted through the Mobilization editorial web site
Please review our guidelines
<https://mobilization.scholasticahq.com/for-authors>prior to submission.
Please note in your cover letter that this manuscript is for our special
issue on Memories and Movements.

Submissions are due January 1 2019 and potential authors must agree to
submit any potential revisions within six weeks. Potential authors are
encouraged to contact the special issue editors, daphi@???
& lorenzo.zamponi@???, with any questions in advance of submission.

Mobilization is the leading journal of research on social and political
movements and other forms of contentious politics. Our goal is to advance
the systematic, scholarly, and scientific study of these phenomena, and to
provide a forum for the discussion of methodologies, theories, and
conceptual approaches across the disciplines of sociology, political
science, social psychology, communications, and anthropology.
