FYS 101F POLITICS IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Many think of power as institutionalized in offices of high governance, the state, international institutions, corporate offices, and other executive sites of authority. In contrast, this course examines power in everyday life. Students will become conversant with the power of capital, the politics of identity, and the ongoing constructions of empire while also engaging with criticisms of class, gender, race, and colonialism. The course explores the ways in which forms of oppression and subjection intersect with one another and are resisted in practice and thought.
Open to First-Year students
Enrollment limited to 16 students.
