Power, resistance and organisation
Power, resistance and organisation are concepts which are inevitably interlinked. The research group on power, resistance and organisation adopts a critical approach to the study of these relationships and is currently focused on various aspects of individual and collective resistance practices.
In the research group, we are interested in questions such as: When and how are individuals and groups resisting, and what relations of power do they challenge? How do people organise in networks, social movements, and on social media platforms? When does resistance lead to new forms of power?
We are researching themes such as humorous political activism, worker cooperatives, #MeToo/feminist hashtags, and authorities’ responses to nonviolent social movements as well as the links between temporality, power, and resistance. Everyday resistance and constructive resistance are emerging concepts within resistance studies that our research group continuously contributes to theorizing around as well as exploring empirically.
