POG 431 Power, Hegemony and Resistance

From Machiavelli’s reflections on how a ruler might maintain power, to those of revolutionaries concerned with overthrowing it, political theorists have long grappled with the nature of power, and resistance to it. This course will engage these debates by examining liberal theorists focusing on political institutions, Marxists locating power in the structures of the capitalist state, and post-structuralists, feminists and anti-racists situating power in discursive knowledge and social categories such as race and gender.
