Wednesday, December 6th at 9am Pacific StandardTime.
Guest Speaker: Andre Sales, Brazilian political psychologist and a post-doctoral fellow at Sao Paulo Pontifical Catholic University.
Andre Sales will be discussing Chapter 3 of his book on A Political Psychology Approach to Militancy and Prefigurative Activism at our next Coffee Hour. Chapter 3 is focused on events in the winter of 2015-16 when students occupied more than 200 public high school facilities in the state of Sao Paulo to prevent the state from closing their schools. The chapter connects the Brazilian sit-ins with the broader transformations in contentious politics taking place around the world. Andre uses a sociohistorical approach to human development to discuss the relevance of future-oriented actions, commitments, and agency to understand how people grow and change throughout their lives. His talk will be an invitation to researchers in the social sciences to address the challenge of theorizing how people interpret their world while changing it.
