PCT18: Political Disobedience
Political Disobedience is political theory incubator stimulating new research and collaboration in the study of mass action, social movements, and civil disobedience.
Open to New People
Active since: 2023
- Cornell University
- Union College
The research agenda of Political Disobedience is organized around four pillars:
- the history and praxis of mass action
- the ethical and normative dimension of extra-legal political action
- the democratizing and anti-democratic dynamics of mass action in relation to the state and global institutions, and
- ideology, aesthetics, and rhetoric.
We aim to promote dialogue across disciplinary divides in the humanities to facilitate collaborative research synergies and support ongoing faculty and graduate research projects.
