#Occupy A New Language: How A Protest Can Be Seen As A Conversational Platform?

Raya Raeva

Abstract


The aim of this paper is to discuss the role of the post-communist generation, known as the ‘transition generation,’ in the protest movement in Bulgaria during the period 2013 – 2014. For this purpose, my discussion will focus on the student occupation, as a radical form of protest, the different types of discourse within it, and, more specifically, what kind of social and political boundaries were crossed based on the relations created amongst the participants in the protest. This paper will ask whether there is ground for asserting that the protesting students became an active and recognized social actor with a language and identity of their own, characteristic of a whole new generation.
