yet another blog?

I know you’ve all been just dying for another blog to read, haven’t you?  Well, I’m here to satisfy!

Today marks the the public launch of Mobilizing Ideas, a new scholarly (or perhaps pseudo-scholarly!) blog concerned with activism, social movements, protests, and the like.  The blog consists of two sections: a monthly set of invited essays on a particular topic, called “Essay Dialogues”, and a more typical blog stream of smaller contributions, called the “Daily Disruption.”

The First Essay Dialogue takes on Jennifer Earl and Katrina Kimport’s new book, Digitally Enabled Social Change: Activism in the Internet Age (MIT Press, 2011) with contributions from scholars an activists, including Francesca Polletta, Deana Rolinger, Paul-Brian McInerney, Frida Berrigan, Joss Hands, and Kevin Matthews.

The Daily Disruption already contains many interesting contributions, especially occupied with Occupy, so to speak.

I hope you’ll stop by!
