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

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 4:56pm
Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 31, 2017

EXTENDED DEADLINE-31 JULY 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.

The past, the present and the future are united by tensions. Tensions between them; their ideologies, landscapes and temporal climates, and tensions they share; questions of identity, art and social responsibility. Every generation faces political binaries as we struggle to reconcile a world fraught with difference. Not only are our understandings of race, gender and nation constantly shifting in relation to new discoveries and ideas, but the ways in which we communicate these ideas are in dialogue.
