Topics of discussion will include: how does political science help us better understand OWS? How does OWS challenge the way we study and learn about the world? What are our responsibilities in not just participating in but also analyzing and studying social movements? We will focus on how the answers to these questions can help us better mobilize and organize for economic transformation.

Left Forum is the largest annual conference of the broad Left in the United States. Each spring thousands of conference participants come together to discuss pressing local, national and global issues; to better understand commonalities and differences, and alternatives to current predicaments; or to share ideas to help build social movements to transform the world. This year’s theme of Left Forum is “Mobilizing for Economical/Ecological transformation.”  Speakers include Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone and Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera.
