Jillian Schwedler is Professor of Political Science at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. In this lecture, Prof Schwedler will share the findings of her latest book, 'Protesting Jordan: Geographies of Power and Dissent' (Stanford University Press, 2022). Based on twenty-five years of field research, Protesting Jordan examines protests as they are situated in the built environment, bringing together considerations of networks, spatial imaginaries, space and place-making, and political geographies at local, national, regional, and global scales. Schwedler considers the impact of time and temporality in the lifecycles of individual movements. Through a mixed interpretive methodology, this book illuminates the geographies of power and dissent and the spatial practices of protest and repression, highlighting the political stakes of competing narratives about Jordan's past, present, and future. The monograph was named as a 2022 Notable Book of the Year Award, sponsored by the National Endowment for Democracy. This event is co-organised by the School of Law Human Rights Centre and the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.
