Campus, city, networks and nation : student-migrant activism as socio-spatial experience in Melbourne, Australia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The article analyses three case studies of protests involving student migrants in Melbourne : a protest against unfair assessment ; a fight for a campus prayer room ; and labour protests within the retail service and taxi industries. It draws on theoretical work on new social movements and social transformation in urban spaces to find ways to conceptualize this activism in relation to the scales of campus, city and nation. It argues primarily that these sites of protest are socio-spatial experiences that encompass shifting and socially produced spatial scales, as well as complex networks of association across different communities, which in turn reflect different student-migrant identities.
