Abstract

Since June 2013, some crucial changes have happened in the way Brazilian collective action to contest social norms presents itself. Scrutinizing the meanings of the words "militância" and "ativismo", this research explores the hypothesis that militancy and activism are different methodologies to gather people engaged in collective action and in social movements. The research primary goal is to differentiate these two methodologies; and to debate the subjective differences between "militantes" and "ativistas" by using Brazil's Institutionalist Social Psychology framework. The results achieved during the first stage of data collection at the City University of New York (CUNY) reinforce the need to return to New York City in order to: a) collect and review papers and theories related to the micro-structural level of the collective action in American Sociology; b) scrutinize documents, articles, and archives from radical movements that had occurred during the last century to clarify the influences of anarchist and socialist ideas under ativistas and militantes, respectively; c) become familiar with Professor Anna Stetsenko's approach to political imagination, utopia, collective action, and activism. The internship has a duration of six months; will happen under Professor James Jasper's supervision; and will be hosted by The Ph.D. Program in Sociology at CUNY. The internship is the final stage of data collection envisaged by the research project carried out in Brazil.
