- One of the several intersections between social movements, cultural soc, and econ soc is the “repertoire,” which is basically a special case of the cultural toolkit as applied to activism. The fun thing is that they are culturally specific and usually tie into some broader institutional logic. Here’s a Slate story on the roadblock protest. The story describes it as peculiar to Argentina, but I know of similar protests in France and in Mexico there was even a longstanding airport-runway-block protest.
