Inequality & Social Difference


About

New in 2020, this cluster brings together scholars working across fields (in the humanities and social sciences as well as in law and education, for example) to: examine multiple forms of inequality; take up questions of social difference, embodiment, and identity in ways that attend to structures and flows of power; and to explore (and contest) oppression’s logics, norms, institutions, and practices across time, place, culture, and circumstance. This cluster also includes activities that explore oppositional logics, diverse theories and practices of resistance (cultural, political, creative, pedagogical, collective, embodied, performative), and strategies for contesting inequality and injustice, currently and historically.
