What is power? What are its effects? What is power's relation to powerlessness? Power is a fundamental concept in the social sciences. It is also one of the most contested. In this course, you will consider different approaches to power from the perspective of power's relation to powerlessness. We will consider how power and powerlessness are understood and experienced in relation to companion concepts such as violence, freedom, knowledge, sovereignty, bodies, creativity, and rights.
