Power

Power is the ability to make things happen. It is impossible to imagine the world without it, and it takes innumerable forms. Some can be precisely measured and analyzed; others are so subtle as to almost defy description. The Power thread will examine the forms power takes in the natural world and in the products of human culture, in relationships between individuals and in relationships between groups and nations.  Drawing on several different academic disciplines, we will seek to understand how this indispensable abstraction has been and is used and abused, gained and lost, asserted and contested in actual concrete circumstances of the past and the present.

This thread can be 9 or 18 hours.
