The objective of the Culture, Power, and History Workshop is to provide a place to discuss research, opening up the process of knowledge creation by focusing on work-in-progress while building interdisciplinary links among students, faculty, researchers, and anyone interested in meaning creation (culture), inequalities (power), and social change (history).
Our workshops and seminars are free and open to the public. For our workshops, we ask presenters to send us a work-in-progress at least a week in advance. We’ll post the paper here, and encourage participants to read the paper beforehand. We developed a set of guidelines to promote a constructive and fruitful discussion. For our seminars presenters are encouraged, but not required, to send us work in advance of their talk. Participants should expect to engage in a more traditional question and answer session.
The Culture, Power, and History Workshop meets on some Fridays from 3 to 4:30 pm (changes to this schedule will be announced on our Schedule page). Due to Covid-19 restrictions, meetings during the 2020-2021 academic year take place virtually.
