About the event

This workshop invites participants to converse together about power—what power is, how power is instantiated, and whether or not we individually and/or collectively desire to influence, acquire, sap, or shun power. We might consider how power operates in our own daily lives, and/or how we ourselves create and execute power. We might also consider questions related to public policy, and what mechanisms of power produce public policy.

Suggested reading: Domination and the Arts of Resistance.
