Abstract and Keywords

First introduced and conceptualized by Charles Tilly, the notion of repertoires has become a central analytical tool for identifying and making sense of specific routines of claim making that are selected and acted out by people in their pursuit of shared interests and change during contentious interactions with others. This chapter unpacks the analysis of repertoire selection and change according to two sets of arenas of contentious interaction. I first examine repertoire selection in the context of interactions between movement organizations, movements and authorities, and movements and security forces, and analyze repertoire change as a result of dynamics within and between these arenas. An analysis of repertoire selection and change as they relate to additional arenas of interaction whose salience increases significantly during cycles of contention—between: movements and the general public, movements and countermovements, and movements and outside non/state forces—will follow, focusing particularly on emergent repertoires.

Keywords: tactical choice, performance, arena of interaction, episodes/cycles of contention, innovation, cultural forces, emotional salience, eventful protest, emergent repertoires
