Reassembling civil society: Participation as a hybrid collective.

Recently, the classic idea of civil society seems outdated, as citizens increasingly participate in hybrid contexts that mingle roles and rationalities of civil society, state, market, and private life. To understand this new condition, this research project will develop a new conceptual framework and take an innovative methodological approach, looking at hybrid participation in a supermarket (consumer activism).
