The (Dis)Order of Things: Mechanisms of Power and Control

Monday, April 17, 2017 - 2:32pm
Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 19, 2017

Our Fall 2017 Comparative Studies Student Association Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on questions of power.  Where is power found? How does power exert control? Power and control form the foundation of relationships within institutions (government, gender, self, etc.) but also invite conflict. These concepts serve to establish order and stability, but can also inspire disorder and a desire to destabilize when they become oppressive. Understanding the mechanisms of power and how they exert control, how power and control are distributed, becomes imperative in understanding and possibly resolving conflict.
