Geographies of Social Movements

I recently finished a draft of a chapter on social movements for the next Blackwell Companion to Political Geography.  As part of that work I created this open public bibliography of geographies of social movements on zotero and I would love to have you add to it.

If you are not a zotero user, you can still see the list on the site above, and sort by year, but I've also posted a static version here that you might be more comfortable with.  And here is a report version, sorted by date, that includes abstracts.  Note that I did not clean up the typos, etc that can come through with zotero quick click downloads, and the static versions do not include ongoing updates. 

Zotero is reference management software.  It does what Endnote does, but more, and more easily - and it's free! It makes my life better daily and I am wildly grateful to the Carnegie Mellon foundation for funding it to promote collaborative scholarship, like this sort of list. 

What all is included in this bibliography? It has literature about social movements in/across/as/with space, place, scale, networks, regions, territory and/or any other spatial concepts. Most of this work is by geographers, but of course work by others is welcome!

This list also includeds analyses of who organizes where, how, and for, or against, what; and how different whos organize against similar whats, or how organizing here is or is not like organizing there, and how each is facing similar dynamics of not only capitalism but other systems of oppression.

The list currently includes work in English, Spanish, and Portugese. It would be fantastic if you could suggest resources in other languages.
