The Olin Book Talks series is part of the Cornell University Library’s “Chats in the Stacks” program. The Book Talks feature the latest in Cornell humanities and social science scholarship, as Cornell faculty members read from their recent publications and answer questions from their audience.
Join us on March 26th at 4:30 pm for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Sidney Tarrow, the Maxwell M. Upson Professor Emeritus of Government and visiting professor at Cornell’s Law School. Professor Tarrow will be discussing his new book “The Language of Contention–Revolutions in Words, 1688-2012″. The event will take place in the Amit Bhatia Libe Cafe.
Professor Tarrow will be joined by Glenn Altschuler, dean of the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions and the Thomas and Dorothy Litwin Professor of American Studies, and Jason Frank, associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of Government for a discussion on the development of the language of social movements, strikes, revolutions, and terrorism from the seventeenth century to the present.
