Description

Dissent!: Histories and Meanings of Opposition from 1968 to the Present addresses issues with history and theory in dialogue. The conference seeks to reveal dissent in its ideological, social and political diversity. The conference seeks to comprehend dissent as “owned” not by one counter-cultural or ideological position, but via broad pastiches of global movements and ideas. The conference seeks to address socio-political opposition as contextually responsive and historically diverse. Moreover, Dissent! seeks to examine dissidence in a period where late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries do not necessarily “break” (typically around 1989), but rather provide genealogies of acts warranting comparison, narrativization, theorization and representation under the heading of “social and political opposition.”
